Nikon develops new software for high quality web conferences with Nikon cameras

The new and free software will be compatible with select Nikon mirrorless and DSLR cameras

SINGAPORE – Nikon Corporation is in plans to release the beta version of Webcam Utility*, a software that allows a Nikon mirrorless or DSLR camera to be used as a high-quality option of a webcam in early August 2020.

In response to the demand for high-quality video conferences as online meetings have become increasingly common, Webcam Utility has been developed to enable users to use their existing Nikon mirrorless or DSLR camera as a webcam.

By simply installing the Webcam Utility software, currently compatible with the Windows OS, to a computer* and connecting the compatible Nikon mirrorless or DSLR camera to the computer via a USB cable, users can enjoy the superior image quality of their Nikon camera for online meetings. In addition, with the vast range of available NIKKOR lenses, users will also have the flexibility in choosing their preferred image angle and be benefited by the lenses’ beautiful bokeh and renowned sharpness.

Supported OS
  • Windows 10 (64-bit)
Compatible cameras
  • Z 7, Z 6, Z 5, Z 50, D6, D850, D780, D500, D7500, D5600
  • Future Nikon mirrorless and digital SLR cameras are also scheduled to be compatible with this new software

*This new software application is still in the beta stage of development. Functions may be added or changed, or the service may be terminated, without prior notice.
