Canon’s EOS Webcam Utility Software for Windows is now available to download. Canon previously released a beta version for Windows.

Updates from the Beta version include:

  • Support for a total of 42 EOS ILC and PowerShot cameras, including the new EOS R5 and EOS R6 cameras (up from 25 supported cameras in the beta version).
  • Expansion of support to additional streaming platforms including YouTube Live, Discord, Slack, and Facebook Live.

There is still no mac version of the EOS Webcam Utility. According to Canon they still plan on making one, although I’m not sure why it is taking so long. With so many creative professionals using Mac computers, it is a bit baffling why they didn’t release a Mac version at the same time.
