Yesterday, Nikon released a beta version of its Webcam Utility software for macOS. Like the Windows version, released back on August 6, the macOS utility will allow owners of Nikon Z series and DSLR camera owners to use their compatible cameras as webcams with popular livestreaming and video conferencing software via USB.
The macOS version of the Webcam Utility appears to function identically as the Windows version, complete with support for the following cameras: Z7, Z6, Z5, Z50, D6, D850, D780, D500, D7500 and D5600. The process is as simple as installing the utility, plugging in your camera via USB and selecting it as an input source with a compatible livestreaming or video conferencing program, such as Zoom, Google Teams, OBS Studio and others.
You can find out more information on the process at Nikon’s dedicated Webcam Utility page and download the Webcam Utility beta on Nikon’s website.

The Panasonic Lumix DC-S5 is a full-frame mirrorless camera but in a body smaller than the Micro Four Thirds GH5. It includes updates to Panasonic’s DFD autofocus system, creative photo modes, and video features that come close to matching the more expensive S1H.
Nikon’s new entry-level mirrorless full-framer feels anything but entry-level. And it may well be the model best positioned to convert remaining F-mount holdouts to Z-mount.
