Use A Canon Camera As A Webcam?

Canon Logo on Camera

With the COVID-19 pandemic forcing so many people to start working from home, it’s become nearly impossible to find a webcam if you need one. However, if you have a Canon camera, you might be in luck!

Canon has released* a utility that can use certain models DSLR, mirrorless, and compact cameras as a webcam. You’ll need to be running a 64-bit version of Windows 10 and have a compatible camera model. Sadly, neither of my Canon cameras make that cut, but yours might!

To find out if your camera is compatible, head on over to the EOS Webcam Utility page and check the list!

* This software is still in beta, which means your mileage may vary even if you have Windows 10 and one of the cameras listed on their page.
