hello to all

greetings and salutions to all. i have recently purchased a Pentax 645z, and love it. currently looking for tethered software for it. i have lightroom 4, i know it is old and might need to be updated and am willing to do that. BUT, if there is better software for that purpose, i would prefer it.

Welcome aboard! This is the only USB tethering software for the 645Z, except for the LR plugin which is much more basic:

Welcome, is so they can charge you more the correct answer...

Joking aside, enjoy that fine piece of photographic equipment.
