Almost all DSLR and mirrorless camera manufacturers have released apps that let their cameras double as webcams. Fujifilm has one, Canon has one, Panasonic has one — even Olympus has one.

During the announcement of its new Z5 entry-level full-frame mirrorless camera, Nikon has also taken the opportunity to reveal that it has one too and it’s coming in August.

Nikon USA:

In August, Nikon will release a beta version of the Webcam Utility software for many Nikon DSLR and Z series mirrorless cameras, including the new Z 5. Initially available for Windows 10, the free software will allow compatible Nikon cameras to be used as webcams. When connected via USB, this free software will provide users with incredible sharpness, clarity and flattering depth of field for all of their livestreaming needs including teleconferencing and gaming.

Come to think of it, is Sony the only one left that doesn’t have its own camera-as-webcam solution?
