Camera makers quickly realized that the surge in video conferencing driven by the COVID-19 pandemic also sparked interest in ways to get better video than traditional webcams could offer. Soon, photographers using Nikon cameras will be able to take part in the fun too.
The company will release its own free software for converting cameras into webcams in August. True, so far we are talking only about the beta version and only for Windows 10 users, but the trouble is the beginning – in the future we will probably get options for other operating systems.
Until now, Nikon offered to broadcast from their cameras through the HDMI output on their cameras using image capture devices or by connecting via USB and using third-party software such as Ecamm Live (Mac), Vmix (PC), SparkoCam (PC). Now there will be an easier and easier way to use Nikon technology as a regular webcam.
Nikon says its software will be compatible with many Z-series system cameras and DSLRs. A complete list, however, has not yet been provided.
