Direct From Canon Brand Loyalists, the Next Chapter in the EOS Webcam Utility Software Story Has Arrived With the Launch of the Full Production Version in Latin America

New Full Production Version of the Industry-Bending Software Adds More Canon EOS Cameras to the Service and Expands Global Usage

MELVILLE, N.Y., September 17, 2020 – It has been a whirlwind the last few months in the world of EOS Webcam Utility software. With over seven hundred thousand downloads after launching the beta version of the software in April, Canon U.S.A. Inc. - Latin America Group, a leader in digital imaging solutions, has helped people stay connected with high image quality video communication that is easy of use. And today, the company unveils the full production version of the EOS Webcam Utility software for Windows. The full production version expands to include additional select EOS Interchangeable Lens Cameras (ILC) – such as the new EOS R5 and EOS R6. 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 regarding 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. The additional newly supported cameras include:

  • EOS 1D X
  • EOS 5D Mark III
  • EOS 6D
  • EOS 7D
  • EOS 70D
  • EOS 60D
  • EOS Rebel T8i
  • EOS Rebel T6s
  • EOS Rebel T5i
  • EOS Rebel T3i
  • EOS Rebel SL1
  • EOS Rebel T5
  • EOS Rebel T3

Another common conversation theme within the beta software forums was compatibility with various applications. Canon has heeded those suggestions and the new production version of the software will now work with the tested* video conferencing applications as well as streaming applications including:

  • Zoom
  • Skype
  • Microsoft Teams
  • Cisco Webex
  • Google Meet
  • Google Hangout
  • Facebook Messenger
  • Facebook Live
  • YouTube Live
