Canon EOS Webcam Utility Available for Mac OS; Turns Select PowerShot and ILC Cameras into Webcams

After tens of thousands of downloads and comments from Canon brand loyalists, the EOS Webcam Utility Beta software has expanded, and is now available for macOS users. Unveiled today by Canon U.S.A. for select EOS Interchangeable Lens Cameras (ILC) and PowerShot cameras, this beta version solution converts a compatible Canon camera into a webcam through a simple USB connection.

The Canon EOS 5DS is among the cameras that can be connected to a Mac computer via USB and turned into a Webcam.

Similar to the Windows operating system version released April 28, the new macOS compatible software solution requires one single USB plug (which may need to be purchased separately) to connect the compatible camera to the computer. Once the software is downloaded and the camera is configured within a video conferencing application, the user will have improved video appearance while participating in video conferencing and virtual meetings.

To learn more, including whether your Canon EOS ILC or PowerShot camera is compatible, and to download the EOS Webcam Utility Beta software for both macOS and Windows, visit Canon.us/eoswebcamutility.
