  • Nikon India Pvt. Ltd. 100% subsidiary of Nikon Corporation Tokyo, is in plans to release the beta version of Webcam Utility*, a software that allows a Nikon mirrorless or D-SLR camera to be used as a high-quality option of a webcam in early August 2020.

    In response to the demand for high-quality video conferences as online meetings have become increasingly common, Webcam Utility has been developed to enable users to use their existing Nikon mirrorless or DSLR camera as a webcam.
