There’s been a big rush from manufacturers lately to let you use their cameras as webcams. Fujifilm recently announced their Fuji X Webcam software that essentially simulates a capture device from your camera’s live view – although, unlike Panasonic’s solution, it actually shows up as a capture device. Well, the big news is on that one is that it’s coming to the Mac next month.
But for Fujifilm X-T200 and X-A7 owners, there’s other big news. A new firmware update allows you to plug those cameras straight into your computer via USB and have them automatically detected as regular old USB webcams without the need for the Fuji X Webcam software. Oh, yeah, and that also works, right now, with a Mac.
