Nikon brings its Webcam Utility out of beta, adds support for macOS computers

Nikon has released the first non-beta version of its free webcam utility for macOS and Windows computers.

Back in July, Nikon announced it was working on a webcam utility that would turned select Nikon cameras into webcams with compatible videoconferencing and streaming software. In August, they followed through on that promise with the release of a beta utility for Windows 10 users. Nikon confirmed a macOS version was on the way, but that has yet to be seen—until today.

In addition to being the first non-beta version of the app for Windows 10 users, Webcam Utility Software version 1.0.0 is also available for macOS computers.

As with previous versions of the software, all you need is a compatible Nikon camera, a USB cable for plugging the camera into your computer and a videoconferencing or streaming app that supports external webcams, such as Facebook Messenger, Google Meet, Skype, Zoom, OBS and others. Below is a full list of compatible cameras:

  • Z7
  • Z6
  • Z5
  • Z50
  • D6
  • D850
  • D780
  • D500
  • D7500
  • D5600

You can download Nikon’s Webcam Utility Software version 1.0.0 for macOS and Windows 10 computers on Nikon’s website. Additional information and a full list of compatibility notes can also be found on Nikon’s website.
