Zoom Help for Nikon D5600

23 February 2021 - 01:48 AM

Hi! 

 

I downloaded the nikon webcam utility and that all seems to work fine; however, when I connect my Nikon D5600 to use as my webcam I cannot figure out how the get the feed to be full screen.  I have it set to video/1080p prior to connecting and you can't adjust the aspect ratio on the camera so I'm not sure what to do.  I'm really hoping it's me being dense and operator error because the image quality is obviously light years better than my webcam.  Does anyone have insight??  I have a big meeting EOW and would love to be able to use my DSLR for it if possible.  I attached screenshots for reference.

Also, does anyone have suggestions for keeping the live view from timing out after 30 min.  I saw one hack that used a rubber band.  Anyone have other suggestions or know if that works for video conferencing?

 

And, does anyone have suggestions to avoid the issue of the constant going in and out of focus if the subject moves even slightly when shooting video with the camera?  Should I simply put it on manual focus?

 

Thanks so, so much!!!
