Because of the lockdown in many countries all over the world, there is a sudden rise in work-from-home culture. Everyone is forced to work from the comfort of their homes. And now many online stores are selling work-from-home packages that can make it much more comfortable to work from home. These packages include laptop, webcam, couch, air conditioner and more. But why should you buy an expensive HD webcam if you already have a high quality Fujifilm camera.
Now you can use Fujifilm camera as a webcam in Windows or Mac through a special software called FUJIFILM X Webcam. This software is available for Windows 10, and macOS Siera (10.12) to Catalina (10.15). But this software works with only with a select number of Fujifilm camera – GFX100, GFX 50S, GFX 50R, X-H1, X-Pro3, X-Pro2, X-T4, X-T3, and X-T2 to name a few.
In order to use one of these Fujifilm models as webcam in Windows, first of all you have to download the FUJIFILM X Webcam software from https://fujifilm-x.com/global/support/download/software/x-webcam/ and install it on your system. After the installation, a system reboot is needed before you can proceed to the next steps.
Once your system has rebooted, you can set your Fujifilm camera to still mode, USB data cable mode and auto-focus mode. Then you can connect your camera to your computer using an appropriate USB data cable. After your camera has been detected, you can start using it from all the popular software like Microsoft Skype, Microsoft Teams, Zoom, or even through any website.
This is a new trend with all the leading camera manufacturers that they are allowing everyone to use their very high-end cameras as webcams in Windows or Mac.
