Nikon is all set to release the beta version of Webcam Utility, a software that allows Nikon mirrorless or DSLR cameras to be used as a high-quality option of a webcam.

Clearly a response to the demand for high-quality video conferences as online meetings have become increasingly common, Webcam Utility has been developed to enable users to use their existing Nikon mirrorless or DSLR camera as a webcam.

By simply installing the Webcam Utility software to a computer and connecting the compatible Nikon mirrorless or DSLR camera to the computer via a USB cable, users can enjoy the superior image quality of their Nikon camera for online meetings. In addition, with the vast range of available Nikkor lenses, users will also have the flexibility in choosing their preferred image angle and be benefited by the lenses’ beautiful bokeh and renowned sharpness.

Currently, compatibility is restricted to Windows 10 (64-bit) devices.

Compatible cameras include the Z 7, Z 6, Z 5, Z 50, D6, D850, D780, D500, D7500 and the D5600, with future Nikon mirrorless and digital SLR cameras are also scheduled to be compatible.
