Controlling cameras remotely via PC or Mac Software programs used to remotely control DSLR and system cameras yield a significant boost in camera performance. Particularly in photomicrographic applications, these programs enable users to capitalise on all of the camera’s strengths. The Mac version of the Lumix Tether application is also compatible with the same list of Lumix cameras as the Windows one: the DC-S1H, DC-S1R, DC-S1, DC-GH5S, DC-GH5, and DC-G9 models. You will need to open iMovie and then click on the Import button on the left hand side of the software. For further help using the Mac applications please refer to the Apple website, contact Mac by phone or visit your nearest Mac store.

Software programs used to remotely control DSLR and system cameras yield a significant boost in camera performance. Particularly in photomicrographic applications, these programs enable users to capitalise on all of the camera’s strengths. They make it possible to achieve excellent image quality without motion blurs, and operating the camera’s controls via the computer monitor is both convenient and efficient. Since many camera manufacturers offer remote control software, their cameras are generally better suited for microscopy applications.
The connection between computer and camera is usually made via USB cable, wireless LAN interface or wireless LAN adapter. This enables all of the camera’s functions and most of its control settings (for features such as Live View, exposure, white balancing and shutter release) to be accessed and controlled remotely from the user’s PC workstation. As the images can be transferred directly to the PC’s hard drive and stored there, a camera-based memory card is often no longer needed.
Some manufacturers also offer apps for controlling cameras remotely via iPad/tablet or smartphone. However, the range of capabilities provided by such tools does not even come close to that of software programs designed specifically for PCs or Macs. For your convenience, test reports on the key software programs currently available on the market are provided on our website.
