Canon has just released — in the U.S., at least — an EOS Webcam Utility that turns a compatible Canon camera into a high-quality webcam.

Only available for the 64-bit version of Windows 10, the beta-branded software works with most modern Canon EOS DSLRs and mirrorless cameras such as the EOS RP and EOS M6 Mark II, as well as PowerShot cameras such as the PowerShot G7X Mark III.

It’s pretty straightforward to get it to work. You just need to install the software, connect the camera to your PC via USB and then go to your online meeting app and choose it as your camera source. To get the best image, Canon recommends that you adjust the exposure on the camera in video mode first before connecting it to the PC.

Again, Canon says the EOS Webcam Utility is only for use in the U.S. and will not be supported in other countries and regions. Currently, the software isn’t available for download on Canon Singapore’s support site.
