Has anyone found software that allows tethered and/or remote shooting with the Pana G1?
What I mean:
Tethered: You use the camera normally, via the controls on the camera body -- but as you shoot, files are transferred via a cable to a computer.
Remote: You connect the camera to a computer and use the computer to control shutter release (and possibly other settings); the files transfer to the computer as you shoot.
I use a Mac, so it would be nice if there were a Mac version of whatever software does this (although I'm sure Windows users would be interested in hearing about Windows-only software as well.)
It also would be helpful if the software didn't cost a kajillion squillion dollars, but at this stage I mostly want to know what (if anything) is available.
I was mildly surprised to find that Apple Image Capture, which comes with Macs and has the ability to remotely control many digital cameras, does NOT seem to work with the G1 (unless I had something set incorrectly.)
Any insights appreciated!
(Why I want to do this: As I write this, I've got the G1 on a camera stand in a somewhat inconvenient position, looking straight down on a set on which a stylist is about to start putting plates of food. I'm using the G1 because it's the only camera I've got that has an articulated LCD; otherwise there'd be no way to line up the shot! It would be great if I didn't have to run memory cards in and out of the camera, risking jostling it every time.)
