      1. I’m I wrong; does Sony not really care about supporting it’s products on MacOS?

        Someone in the Sony Engineering food chain must have disliked Steve Jobs.

  1. The resolution is only 1,024 × 576 pixels. Your webcam probably is a higher resolution. You can get 1080P by skipping this and using an hdmi converter and OBS.

  2. While launching without a Mac app or at least the respect to giving a timeline on the Mac app version, is incredibly frustrating, it looks like Mac users won’t be missing out on much since the support document says, “1,024 × 576” meaning it’s not 4k (4096 x 2160) and it’s not even HD 1920 x 1080 pixels. So hard to imagine users choosing this over a standard hdmi adapter like the Cam Link 4K. While this wouldn’t be surprising from most camera companies, certainly surprising from the industry leader. But where canon and others were coming out with the apps, the clearly had to rush as quickly as possible to at least get something out so they could say they offer it, even if in the real world wouldn’t be useful to much since no mac support or 4k or hd support.

    1. Apple has a very small PC market share in Japan where the cameras are designed. About half of the US Marketing & Support teams are Mac users, so they’re constantly reminding the engineers that the majority of US photographer are Mac-based, but I believe that part of the issue is that macOS presents more challenges than Windows. On the flip side iOS tends to get support before Android.
