Does anyone has managed to use the D810 as a webcam? And if so how do you proceed?

This gizmo: https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B087C3NG9W/ with an appropriate HDMI cable (HDMI-C or mini to full HDMI) will do it. You setup the camera to provide "clean output".

Thank you. This sounds like a minor investment I'll give a try.

Do you use the EP-5B power connector when using the setup for web conferencing? (pg. 442 in the D810 user's manual)

I was using a D500 that way for some time, and have switched to a gopro (still with the "capture card") just to free up my camera. It worked fine.

Nikon's software solution was unstable for me. I also tried sparkocam, worked quite well with occasional sub-second glitches where the feed froze - that could have been my setup too.

Working on a PC I guess the video conferencing software of your choice will recognize the HDMI input easily.
