How to Connect a Panasonic Lumix to a PC

Updated February 21, 2017

The Panasonic Lumix is a digital high-definition camera with an HDMI (High Definition Media Interface) port for hooking up to a PC for downloading videos and still images. The Lumix uses an HDMI cable with a mini-plug on one end and a standard-size HDMI cable for the PC connection. Each six-sided plug contains 19 pins that fit within their respective ports to transmit video and audio data from the camera to the computer.

  4. Connect the plug on the other end of the cable to the port on the PC. The shorter edge of the plug should be turned downward to insert into the PC.
