After Canon and Fujifilm, Panasonic has also announced a new beta software called Lumix Tether for Streaming that allows users to connect their Panasonic mirrorless and DSLR cameras to use as a webcam via USB. The Lumix Tether for Streaming software is compatible with DC-GH5, DC-G9, DC-GH5S, DC-S1, DC-S1R, DC-S1H cameras and is currently only available for Windows operating system.
The Lumix Tether for Steaming software beta is based on the existing Lumix Tether software version 1.7 that is designed for live streaming or allows photographers to view their photos on monitor or laptop screen. However, Panasonic has made some changes to the graphical user interface of the original software by removing some unwanted options from the view screen of the software that is usually displayed on the monitor screen during tethered shooting. Some of them include the focus area mark, zebra lines, menus and control panels. However, users can choose to show or hide these graphics items while USB tethering as per their needs.
