Canon: The free software that turns webcams into webcams!

Now you can use the company's cameras as a high quality webcam, and the best part is that the list of cameras supported by the software has grown considerably.

When Canon released the version beta of the software, which does not require additional hardware apart from USB cable, it was only compatible with 25 cameras. But five months after that the list has grown to include 42 cameras, including new ones EOS R5 and EOS R6.

This is good news, because it is now more likely for your old dusty model to retire and have a new purpose in life. The full list also includes models such as the EOS Rebel T6i / EOS 750D and the ten-year-old EOS 60D.

With the full release of EOS Webcam Utilities for Windows (Mac version remains in beta), the camera company has also enhanced its list of compatible streaming and video conferencing services. It is now fully approved for connection to Skype, Hangouts, Zoom, Facebook Live, YouTube Live, Microsoft Teams, Discord, Cisco Webex and Open Source Broadcaster software.

Setting up a Canon camera as a webcam with the new Windows software is quite simple. You can also find complete instructions on the official EOS Webcam Utility page, but the basic procedure is as described below:

1.Select your camera from the list of compatible models.

2Select the "Drivers & Downloads" tab.

3Select the "Software" tab.

4Select "Windows 10 (x32 / x64)" if it is not already automatically detected from the operating system list.

5Find the "EOS Webcam Utility" and click the select button.

6.Click the download button.

7Once downloaded, extract the Zip file> double click on the "setup" file and the installation will begin. Restart your computer and it will be ready.

To set up your Canon camera, all you have to do is set it to "movie" mode, select "Full HD" quality, and then adjust the exposure settings.

Next, you just need to connect the cable USB and then select EOS Webcam Utility as the source in the video conferencing application or streaming.
