Canon EOS M50 used as a webcam

Previously released in beta form, the Canon EOS Webcam Utility is now available and supports a much wider range of cameras, including older Canon EOS DSLRs. This software will be particularly useful if you've started working from home, and need to attend virtual meetings, or useful if you've been unable to find a webcam, due to them mostly being sold out.

Canon offers an enhanced virtual meeting and video conferencing experience designed to support the new ways people are working

From Canon: London, United Kingdom - Wednesday 16th September 2020 - Canon Europe announces the launch of EOS Webcam Utility, a free to download software that allows users to connect their compatible Canon DSLR and PowerShot camera to a Mac or PC computer, where it will be recognised as a USB webcam. Eliminating the need for additional equipment, the EOS Web Utility Software will enable users to replace their existing webcam and experience high-quality virtual meetings and video conferencing through their Canon camera.
