Hasselblad announces updated Phocus software
Hasselblad has launched Phocus 2.6.6 * - a brand new version of its proprietary Phocus software, plus a new Phocus Mobile 2.0 format for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. Phocus Mobile enables wireless camera control - and the latest 2.0 version includes a host of new features as well as access control.
Peter Stig-Nielsen, Hasselblad product management director, explained: “Many discerning photographers across the world are already familiar with the sheer power and performance of this highly intuitive software package and this spring launch of Phocus 2.6.6 and Phocus Mobile 2.0 will make their imaging work more effective. Photographers can be wirelessly linked to a computer running Phocus – and now with the new 2.6.6 version, any number of Phocus Mobile clients can connect to the Phocus server simultaneously.”
Stig-Nielsen added: “Phocus Mobile 2.0 significantly improves options for photographers to show and share their work during a shoot and also includes a 100% zoom function of images in the file browser; new GPS tagging; folder access control and a Demo Mode functionality. And all this is now available as a free download at the App Store.”
