Last month, Canon released the EOS Webcam Utility Beta for Windows that enabled PC owners to turn their compatible EOS and PowerShot cameras into webcams for use in video conferencing apps such as Skype and Zoom.
Now, Canon has announced the same utility is now available for macOS users, bringing the functionality to Apple owners wanting to up their video conferencing game. According to Canon, ‘tens of thousands’ of downloads were made for the Windows version and the most-requested feature was support for macOS computers.

The macOS version works identical to the Windows version and requires little more than one of the above compatible cameras and a USB cable for your specific camera model. Canon is requesting feedback on its forums if you encounter any problems or have a feature request.
