Canon was rightly praised when it unveiled its EOS Webcam Utility last month, allowing users to turn many of the company’s most popular DSLRs and mirrorless cameras into webcams without using a capture card. There was just one issue: the Beta was Windows only. Well, not anymore.

Just minutes ago, Canon announced that EOS Webcam Utility has officially been released on MacOS. In a not-so-humble press release titled “You Asked, Canon Delivers,” the company pats itself on the back for acting on feedback from Apple users who made their disappointment known “through multiple Canon social media channels, customer comments and

During a recent Fujifilm India livestream, a member of the product team revealed that the company is actively developing a firmware update that would allow you to use your Fuji X camera as a ‘plug and play’ webcam, ostensibly over USB.
