After opening its local webcam software to Canon Mac users, Fujifilm has announced that it is doing the same. The X Webcam app for Fujifilm cameras will come to MacOS in July.
Fujifilm reported that its mirrorless cameras will be able to use its X Webcam app as a Mac webcam after Windows returns in May. The Mac version of the app should be delivered “in mid-July” (via Engadget) and work with its X series cameras. The last two additions are compatibility for the X-A7 and X-T200.
In addition to releasing its webcam software for Mac, Canon will release a neat app called Camo (currently in beta) that lets you use your iPhone as your Mac webcam. If you don’t want to wait for Fujifilm’s X Webcam app, here are two more options we shared earlier:
The Cascable Pro webcam is a good alternative to most Canon, Fujifilm, Nikon, Olympus, Panasonic and Sony cameras with WiFi and Canon EOS and Nikon cameras work on USB. Cascable offers a free trial then runs $ 30 as a one-time purchase (it’s still in beta).
Other options include the use of two pieces of software, Camera Live and CamTwist. Read more about how to go with this option.
