Hi all,

I'd like to use my Nikon J5 as a webcam. Has anyone found a way to do this?

Not all cameras can be used this way.
I tried different setups with and without video capture cards, point and shoot cameras, mirrorless, go pros, DSLRs, smartphones.
iPhone was the easiest.
Cameras not specifically designed with this feature in mind were mostly failures.

Don't know about the J5, but I was not able to get clean video from the HDMI port on my V1 and V3 cameras. The image always had camera data on it.
