Lumix G9

Panasonic has released a Beta version of 'LUMIX Tether for Streaming' software which allows selected LUMIX cameras to be used as a webcam giving better video quality for streaming and video calls. 

"As 'LUMIX Tether' is a software program originally designed for tethered shooting, GUIs such as a focus area mark as well as control panels are displayed with live view images on the PC monitor during USB tethering. However, these graphic items become a hindrance when the software is used to capture camera view for live streaming." - Panasonic

"In response to the demands of customers to resolve this issue, LIVE VIEW mode has been added on “LUMIX Tether for Streaming (Beta)”. It enables displaying camera view only, making it easy for the separate streaming software to read it. Users can choose to show or hide these graphic items during USB tethering according to the usage purpose." Panasonic added.

Currently, the software is only available for Windows 10 OS and only works with the following models of camera:

The software can be downloaded from the LUMIX Global website
