Sony is launching today the first version of its “Imaging Edge Webcam” utility, which allows some of its cameras to be connected to a computer to transform them into luxury webcams. Well behind some of its competitors – Canon had fired at the end of last April! – Sony however follows the same recipe: a certain number of “verified” boxes and availability only Windows 10 at first.
If we refer to the roadmaps of the competitors, a Mac OS version should arrive in the coming weeks / months.
As for compatible devices, the Sony site is the reference for the hour 35, including all RX100s from the Mark IV generation, the Alpha 6s from the A6100 generation and all full-frame Alpha, except the Alpha A7 and Alpha A7R.
The download is done in directly on the Sony site.
