Nikon cameras as webcams with this tool
Nikon has also released a tool that transforms some of its cameras (mirrorless and reflex) into devices for streaming and to participate in video calls or videoconferencing: it is called Webcam Utility and is available for free download on computers with Windows and macOS operating systems. Requires device connection via USB cable.

Webcam Utility allows you to use a Nikon camera as a webcam when connected to a computer via USB. The camera will function as a webcam when Webcam Utility is selected as an external camera in a web conferencing app.

Select P, S, A or M mode when using a D750, D7500, D7200, D5600, D5500, D5300 or D3500; camera microphones are not supported. Use an external microphone or the microphone that came with your computer; camera temperature may rise and Live View may terminate after long periods of use, wait for camera to cool; the use of Live View increases the consumption of the rechargeable battery; close Nikon Transfer 2 and Camera Control Pro 2 before connecting to the camera; the frame size is 1024 × 768 pixels. Other imaging manufacturers that have done the same in recent months are Panasonic, Canon, GoPro, Fujifilm and Olympus.
