EOS 2000d computer compatibility when using a webcam

JackieO

I want to connect my EOS 2000d to my computer using a USB cable, but I haven't bought one yet. Before buying one, I wanted to ask if I can use the 2000d as a webcam. I know it's not primarily meant to be a camera to film on, but a camera to take photos with. I'm worried I won't be able to film while connected to a computer.

I wouldn't do it even if it is possible. 

However,     Web Cam   click that!

EOS 1DX and 1D Mk IV and less lenses then before!

Just to be clear, you wouldn't do it because it wouldn't be practical or because you don't know if it would work... Because I can't believe I'm supposed to buy software that costs 5 bucks/month just to use my 700 euro camera as a webcam every once in a while. Right? Why not make a camera that would work like it's supposed to?

The Canon USA version of the Webcam Utility has two operating modes.  There’s a free mode for a single camera. The advanced mode requires a paid subscription   

it seems like you’re in Europe. You Canon Support web site may have something similar.
