Sony has released a new version of its Imaging Edge Webcam software for the Mac platform. And now, owners of some of Sony’s latest cameras have the ability to connect them to computers and use them as a high-end webcam when communicating via Zoom, Skype and other video calling applications. In August, Sony already released a version of the software with similar capabilities for Windows.
Imaging Edge Webcam software for Mac transforms 36 different Sony cameras into a webcam, including the relatively newer E-mount and A-mount lens mounts such as the A9 II, A9, A7S III, A7R IV, A7R III, A7R II, A7S II, A7S, A7 III, A7 II, A6600, A6500, A6400, A6100. The company has also not forgotten about the owners of devices with fixed lenses. The software supports RX100 VII, RX100 VI, RX0 II, RX0 and ZV-1 models.
Older cameras such as the original A7 or A6000 are not supported. To use them as a webcam, users will have to additionally purchase a video capture card with an HDMI interface (the price of such devices is about $ 11-25) and connect the camera to such a card.
