Canon announces the macOS Full Production Version of EOS Webcam Utility Software
With over 1 million downloads across the globe with 300,000 of them in the United States alone, the next chapter in the EOS Webcam Utility software story has been written. Continuing to fulfill the very apparent need of our customers, Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today announced the full production version 1.0 of the EOS Webcam Utility Software for macOS as well as version 1.1 for Windows. Now officially out of beta, macOS users, as well as Windows users, have access to the software, which converts compatible Canon EOS Interchangeable Lens (ILC) and PowerShot cameras into high-quality webcams for video conferencing and streaming.
Rooted with ease and convenience at its core, the EOS Webcam Utility software is a direct result of the market shift that Canon identified; and, adhering to the needs of our customer base, Canon designed a software that produces high-quality video streaming. Now compatible with 43 Canon EOS ILC and PowerShot cameras, including the new EOS M50 Mark II, the complete list of compatible Canon cameras includes:
|EOS-1D X Mark III||EOS 6D||EOS Rebel T7i||EOS Rebel T6||EOS M6 Mark II|
|EOS-1D X Mark II||EOS 7D Mark II||EOS Rebel T6s||EOS Rebel T5||EOS M50 Mark II|
|EOS-1D X||EOS 7D||EOS Rebel T6i||EOS Rebel T3||EOS M50|
|EOS-1D C||EOS 90D||EOS Rebel T5i||EOS Rebel T100||EOS M200|
|EOS 5DS R||EOS 80D||EOS Rebel T3i||EOS R5||PowerShot G5X Mark II|
|EOS 5DS||EOS 77D||EOS Rebel SL3||EOS R6||PowerShot G7X Mark III|
|EOS 5D Mark IV||EOS 70D||EOS Rebel SL2||EOS Ra||PowerShot SX70 HS|
|EOS 5D Mark III||EOS 60D||EOS Rebel SL1||EOS R|
|EOS 6D Mark II||EOS Rebel T8i||EOS Rebel T7||EOS RP|
Another common conversation theme within the beta software forums was compatibility with third-party applications. As of announcement day, the new production version of the software has been tested* with various video conferencing applications as well as streaming applications** including:
- Cisco Webex®
- Facebook® Messenger
- Streamlabs OBS®
- Microsoft Teams®
- YouTube® Live
- Facebook® Live
- Hangouts MeetTM
- Open Broadcaster Software®
- Apple® FaceTime®
Moreover, customers have desired to record a high-quality video file onto the memory card in their camera while video conferencing or streaming, and we listened. This can now be achieved*** by simply pressing the record button on the camera and not through the software.
Without customers sharing their points of view, experiences and preferences via the EOS Webcam Utility software user forums, the software would not have reached this level of success. Moving forward, Canon will continue to lean on customers, listen to the market and create innovative solutions that fulfill customer’s needs – while continuing to offer high quality, digital imaging equipment and solutions.
