A new PC Tethered Shooting Software HS-V5 for Windows® Ver. 1.0 will feature two modes, Camera Mode and PC Mode, giving photographers enhanced shooting controls.
 
Within the PC Tethered Shooting Software, Camera Mode allows users to operate the camera and adjust its settings on the camera itself, with images taken simultaneously transferred to computer for display on the screen or saving on a PC. Adjusting exposure and other shooting settings, along with activating the shutter release, are carried out on camera. Alternatively, users can switch to PC Mode where they can check the viewfinder image of a remotely-setup camera, operate the camera and adjust its settings on a PC screen, with images taken simultaneously transferred to a PC for display on the screen or saving onto a PC. Adjusting exposure and other shooting settings, or activating the shutter release, are carried out remotely on the computer.
 
PC Tethered Shooting Software HS-V5 also includes the Hyper-Utlity3 image browser for easy image viewing, analysis, assessment, categorization and organization. It features an image analysis function using the histogram, highlight clipping warning and EXIF data (including Film Simulations, exchangeable LENS name, and more) and displays an “image assessment” function that shows two images side-by-side for comparison.
 
PC Tethered Shooting Software HS-V5 will be available in January 2015.

Here is a list other popular tethering software options to explore.

  1. Why not just make it compatible with CaptureOne and LightRoom? Most professionals are already using those systems and would allow for a larger and quicker install base.

  2. I would assume it is one of 2 reasons. Either Fuji has not released the Software Developers Kit(SDK)so other software packages are unable integrate. Or the SDK is available but there is not enough Fuji shooters requesting that feature from LR or Capture One so they have not allocated software developers to those cameras. If you are interested in integrating with LR (same concept with COP) here is a tutorial on how to set it up: http://tethertalk.com/2013/04/04/wireless-tethered-photography-with-adobe-lightroom/

  3. Fuji has released the SDK http://www.fujirumors.com/rumor-next-version-of-lightroom-will-support-x-t1-tethered-shooting-new-source-fujifilm-launches-sdk/
    Captureone doesn’t show interest in the Fuji tetering. I have emaied them before. Lightroom won’t release it’s new version until sometime in February 2015. And, everyone using a light tablet or tabletPC doesn’t want a full blown LR on their computer just for tethering. Watch folder creation is crap, taking pictures and deleting pictures. Then deleting them again is time consuming. I would prefer to hook up the cable and shoot. I can use LR later. When on location, tether shooting

  4. Let’s not pidgeon hole everyone profesional or non professional or experianced amateur of photographic artist into only wanting to use LR or Capture One, and pay a subscription service for using 4 or 5 different computers. Everytime there is an update in CC 2014 its a pain in the u know what to update your LR stand alone version that we paid good money for.Because we all know the Adobe is transitioning to it’s subscription module.
