Canon EOS Webcam Utility

Canon has released a generic webcam driver utility that enables operators of supported Canon EOS and PowerShot cameras to plug into their Windows (and Mac) PC. This allows the operator to select their camera device as if it were a webcam in a variety of applications including CardExchange Producer.

The driver is available on Canon’s support site here:

Downloading the driver
