How to use Canon EOS 70D as a webcam for Facebook Live

I am not sure if it's possible to use the Canon EOS 70D as a webcam for Facebook Live. We've talked about having one person people the camera operator and then have a second person holding a laptop and a cable connecting to the camera.

 

I know you need drivers(?) to make all of this work.  Can someone offer info please and if they've done it and if it works well?

 

Thanks.

I don't think you can or that you would want to. The camera does not work as a generic web cam, it only works with Canon's apps.

You're kidding, right?

 

Why not just learn and enjoy photography? It's a great hobby.
