Sony has released a new version of its Imaging Edge web software software for the MX, which allows you to plug directly into the latest Sony camera to use as a high quality webcam for zooming or Skype calls to your computer.
The company had already released a version of the software for Windows in August Gust, but the new release means that Mac users can also get ahead in action with crisp, high-quality video calls.
The new software works with Sony’s 36 cameras, including the latest cameras in its E-Mount and A-Mount series, 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, as well as its fix-lens devices such as RX100 VII, RX100 VI, RX0 II, RX0, and vlog-centric ZV-1.
Although older devices like the original A7 or A6000 are not supported, you can still manually connect them as a webcam using an HDMI capture card (this cheap model, which costs between $ 11 and $ 25, does the trick. )
Sony is one of the last camera companies to offer software solutions for using its high-end camera as a webcam: Canon, Olympus, Panasonic, Fujifilm and GoPro have already provided software for their own devices.
