Yesterday, Canon announced they've created software that will turn your DSLR into a webcam with this new software. It's only for Windows at the moment, but the install was super easy. Download is here

EOS, Vixia, and Powershot cameras can be connected to Zoom, Skype, OBS, Wirecast, vMix, and more via USB cable. The list of cameras is pretty impressive, although I am not sure why the M5 is not supported (since the M50 is). It's in beta, so the list can change.

I connected a T6i up to it, and got a 720p video stream going. Fairly impressive.

This is a list of all Canon cameras the software supports at this time.

Just another reminder of how outdated my Canon 50D is :laughing:
Might have to pickup a new camera that does both photo and video!

That is awesome, I been trying to find out how to do this since webcams are pretty much impossible to find right now
