I just installed Adobe Lightroom 4 and wanted to tether my GH2 to my laptop with Adobe Lightroom 4 for photos. But it seems Adobe Lightroom 3 and 4 don't support the GH2 for this purpose:

What other (free?)software allows you to hook up your GH2 to your laptop and snap and view pictures while you are shooting live?

Is there also something for video?

I don't think there is any software for tethering Panasonic cameras at this time. You can always give one of these a try, but I'm not sure how fast they are or how well they work:

its more so teh camera not supporting tethering than the software or so i understand....i have searched black and blue with nothing other than the so so eye fi....doubt it would work well with video based on how long it takes to transfer photos

Svem,

I can't personally vouch for it, but this (http://tethertalk.com/2011/01/27/phase-one-capture-one-6-1-now-available-for-download/) news story says that Phase One Capture One 6.1 and later supports tethering for the GH2. Phase One download site here (http://www.phaseone.com/en/Downloads/CaptureOne.aspx).

Hope this is helpful,

Bill
