Swell, the 1D X Mark III can be used as a webcam now. Big Grin Woohoo!

But seriously, a few years ago I was wondering if it was possible to use a DSLR to - say - livestream stuff, which would've been better than using a cellphone's horrible sensor and lens. Back then, I had no answer to that. I may end up downloading and trying that software seeing as how my second camera, the 80D, is on the compatibility list. Not immediately sure what a "T6i" is in proper naming conventions, but if it's really the same as the 650D that my wife has, it's also eligible. (upd: NVM, it's the 750D. I hate these pointless US market-only names for the Rebel cameras because... well, because they're pointless)

With Coronavirus confinement, webcams suddenly became essential.
Demand for good quality webcams suddenly went up. 
Even school teaching is done remotely..
