How can I pair my Lumix Camera with PhotoSync to transfer photos/videos or enable remote shooting?

After successful configuration you will be able to transfer photos / videos from your Lumix camera to your iPhone / iPad over Wi-Fi. PhotoSync also enables shoot & transfer(wirless tethering): Photos & videos are transferred to your iPhone / iPad right after shooting. Optionally also immediate transfer to remote locations (computer, NAS, cloud) can be configured and photo booth support over HDMI & Airplay to a big TV screen is possible. You can connect your iPhone / iPad directly to the camera's Wi-Fi network, an existing Wi-Fi network or a mobile hotspot.
