New free tool from Canon turns EOS cameras into webcams!

New free tool from Canon turns EOS cameras into webcams!

[13:21 wed,29.April 2020   by ]    

Many people rely on virtual meetings to communicate with colleagues during corona lockdowns and home office work, but many (often hard to buy) USB webcams deliver poor quality. Canon is jumping into the breach here and using a new tool, it is transforming many models of its EOS DSLR and mirrorless cameras (as well as three PowerShot compact cameras) into high-quality webcams (which then also allow - possibly not too attractive - background blur in gracious bokeh).

Canon-USB




An EOS camera connected to a computer via USB is displayed as a USB camera using the EOS Webcam Utility, and can be used as an image source in live streaming or video conferencing applications.

EOS camera owners can do without an extra capture box or special commercial software to use their Canon camera as a webcam. The following video explains how to install the software, set up the camera and then use it as a webcam in an appropriate online video conferencing software. A version for macOS is in work and will be released soon.



During the download of the EOS Webcam Utility Tool (for the time being only for Windows and currently still in the beta phase) the note "This Software is for use in the U.S. and will not be supported outside that area" appears, but we assume that it also works outside the USA - but we have asked Canon and are still waiting for the answer. So if any of you have already tried the tool and gained first experiences: please post here!
