Nikon has launched full version software that turns your camera into a webcam utility.

I used the beta version of this, and and ATEM video switcher. However, what worked most consistently was just a $20 HDMI converter. The other systems worked, but often web conferencing software would get confused and think the camera was in use in another app.

I'll try this out and see how it works. People love the quality of the image when I video conference with the Z6

Just hooked my Z6 up to a Win10 PC via a USB cable and had no issues with the WebCam utility. Well, not with that particular machine at least. The one box I had in mind for using the Z6 failed miserably however. Same hardware, same OS.

Thx for the heads up Fons!
I have been running my Z7 as web cam for some time on the Beta version, only minor issues except Gotomeeting which refused to use work entirely  :o Teams and Zoom works just fine.
Minor issue that I don't understand is that the Z7 is not charging with the USB-C cable even when the camera is shut off, only charges with the Nikon AC Adapter EH-7P,,, Too little Amps maybe out of the HP ZBook?
