Canon Releases EOS Webcam Utility Software

The last few months have been a whirlwind in the world of EOS Webcam Utility software. With over 700,000 downloads after launching the beta version of the software in April, Canon USA has helped people stay connected with high-quality video for communication with ease of use. Now, the company unveils the full production version of the EOS Webcam Utility software for Windows. The full production version expands to include additional compatible EOS Interchangeable Lens Cameras (ILC) such as the new EOS R5 and EOS R6 cameras. In addition, the new software will be available worldwide and available for download directly from the Canon website in each region.

A common thread and conversation throughout the beta software forums was the compatibility of camera models. Many customers were excited to experience the beta version of EOS Webcam Utility software and wanted the list of 25 cameras that were compatible to be more extensive. In true Canon fashion – those voices have been heard loud and clear – now, a total of 42 EOS ILC and PowerShot cameras are compatible with the full production software, including the new EOS R5 and EOS R6 cameras. The complete list of compatible cameras includes:

  • EOS-1D X Mark III

Another common conversation theme within the beta software forums was compatibility with third-party applications. As of announcement day, the new production version of the software has been tested with various video conferencing applications as well as streaming applications including:

  • Cisco Webex
  • Messenger
  • Streamlabs
  • Discord
  • Microsoft Teams
  • YouTube Live
  • Facebook Live

Moreover, customers have desired to record a high-quality video file onto the memory card in their camera while video conferencing or streaming, and we listened. This can now be achieved by simply pressing the record button on the camera and not through the software.
