The software enables Nikon cameras, both mirrorless and D-SLR, to function as high-quality cameras for web conferences and livestreams with macOS

New Delhi, September 23, 2020 – Nikon India Pvt.

Due to the increased usage & demand for high quality in video conferencing since telecommuting becomes more common, Webcam Utility will make it possible for users to utilise their existing Nikon camera as an alternative to the common webcam.
