Shooting Tethered with the Panasonic LUMIX GH5

Posted by: on Mar 4, 2018

Tethering a Panasonic LUMIX GH5 to a laptop or computer is made easy with the help of Tether Tools gear! This new camera utilizes a USB-C data port. Shoot tethered with the Panasonic LUMIX GH5 using our TetherPro USB to USB-C cable if your computer has a traditional USB port or TetherPro USB-C to USB-C if your computer has a USB-C port.

The Camera – Panasonic LUMIX GH5

Upgraded, redesigned, and filled with features, the Lumix GH5 from Panasonic provides an outstanding imaging platform for shooters who demand some of the best video and still photography quality they can get in a single compact camera. At the heart of the camera is a 20.3MP Digital Live MOS sensor and a newly developed Venus Engine processor, which both offer dramatically improved processing times over its predecessor. This enables the ability to record 4K video at up to 60 fps, 10-bit 4:2:2 internal recording with select settings, Full HD video at up to 180 fps, 12 fps continuous shooting, and sensitivities up to ISO 25600. Also, the camera features built-in 5-axis sensor stabilization, which can work with certain lenses to activate Dual I.S. 2 for highly effective shake correction that can compensate for up to 5 stops of shutter speed. Other improvements include a speedier and more accurate Advanced DFD autofocus system that can lock on in just 0.05 seconds, as well as 6K PHOTO at 30 fps and 4K PHOTO at up to 60 fps.

The Software – What software should you use to shoot tethered with the Panasonic LUMIX GH5?

The Lumix Tether app works with watched folders to allow photographers to shoot tethered with ease. Free of charge, the software will allow control over essentially all of the camera’s functions, remote trigger the camera, and you can even use watched folders to incorporate Lightroom and Capture One if you want to tether into those programs.
