With Cam Link USB dongles proving both expensive and sometimes a little tricky to track down, you might be pleased to learn that more free workarounds are emerging. This video shows you how to set up your Fujfilm camera to work on your Mac computer as a webcam for use in applications such as Zoom and Facebook Live.
Last month, we found a means of connecting a Sony camera as a webcam using a couple of different pieces of software that effectively piggyback each other to take the feed from the camera and make it available to software such as Zoom. Unfortunately, this has proven a little problematic as you’ll need to install an old version of Zoom and there are reports that the frame rates you can achieve are quite low.
Kim Farrelly has a similar solution for Fujifilm shooters and it seems to be a better option given that Farrelly claims to be able to film smoothly in HD. Again, it avoids the need for the expensive hardware and it’s not too intensive on the camera battery either. “I did a two hours Aikido class on Zoom last night and battery only dropped to 71%,” Farrelly told Fuji Rumors.
