Multi-point live view, focus peaking, Dual Histogram (RAW + processed), visual bracketing monitor, industrial strength reliability and swift operation are the cornerstones of this premium Canon EOS tethering app.

Tethering for the Serious Photographer

Connecting your camera to a computer opens up new possibilities. You'll benefit from working on a large screen, precise exposure control and improved focusing accuracy — a must with today's high-megapixel sensors. Besides being lightning fast at basic tasks, a handful of advanced composition and evaluation tools make Kuuvik Capture an indispensable time-saver for the discerning architecture, landscape or studio photographer.

Live View on a Higher Level

From focusing assistance with real-time sharpening and peaking tools. Through intuitive navigation, focus pulling and alignment grid controls. And culminating in multi-point live view* that makes optimizing depth of field and focusing tilt-shift lenses a breeze — the state-of-the-art live view helps you achieve better results faster. All the while being gentle to the MacBook's battery.

* Available on select cameras only (see below).


Kuuvik Capture also brings the tethering advantage to the cinematographer*. Think about cameras placed in hard-to-reach locations, or enclosed in a crash box. It’s much easier to set up and execute your shot if you see what you are doing — with the help of the app's advanced live view tools.

* Supported with select cameras only (see below).

Rich Automation Toolset

From simple mirror lock-up and release automation, through 15-shot exposure brackets to 100-shot focus brackets, the app covers everything. You can freely combine brackets with the intervalometer and mirror lock-up, while the Bracketing Monitor oversees your settings and warns you about potential problems. You'll never want to revert to the camera's built-in automation features after trying Kuuvik Capture.

Star the Best, Trash the Rest

Culling a shoot is as easy as selecting the best images and let Kuuvik Capture remove the rest. And this even works on images shoot untethered, outside of the app. Like on a wedding or sport event. The fast image decoding and display engine allows us to skip time consuming preview generation, which is a huge boon when working on thousands of images.

A RAW Shooter's Best Friend

Kuuvik Capture aims to assist you in creating the best and highest quality images possible. This is why we provide special tools for working with RAW files. The Dual Histogram and RAW-based clipping warnings help you avoid exposure issues, while the Unitary WB brings RAW-like histogram capability to the untethered camera. Utilizing industry-standard XMP metadata means that your RAW converter could pick up where Kuuvik Capture finished its job.

EOS 60D with Kuuvik = SUCCESS where others FAIL

My years of suffering with Canon's EOS utility is over. I love this software! Canon's utility simply would not work on Mojave (crashes) - and I've suffered with long delays for MacOS support from Canon in the past so I didn't want that again. The USB settings showed the Canon was plugged in - but Photo Booth and Adobe Lightroom would not work either! I was SCARED to buy Kuuvik - would it detect the camera??? I am VERY GLAD that I did! Kuuvik detected the camera immediately, and I was taking photos (Live mode, adjust view on screen, take photo - over and over). Changed my whole attitude - I am geting work done just the way I should! The app has very well thought out features (including an option to active the LCD during LIVE mode, or not - I choose to active it so I can adjust locally), and super easy white balance setting). I use my 60D on a copy stand to photograph small objects in great detail - and this software is what I've yearned for many years. I am SOOOOO happy to have this now!!!

Terrific App

I have been a portrait / still life photographer for 25 years. I recently began tethered shooting. The Canon app for my 5D mkiii was okay but I wanted more control and information when I shoot. After a lot of research I tried a few apps including Kuuvik and I am glad I did. The program has so many features, including some that are particularly helpful for me because I often shoot manually with interesting but challenging old lenses with a very narrow depth of field. With Kuuvik I am able to my focus spot on every time. It takes a little investment of study to be able to use all the features but the manual and videos are very helpful. Moreover, the support for the app could not be better. The developer responds very quickly with any inquiries. Finally, the more I use it and spend time with the program and manual the more apparent it becomes that this app was developed by a very thoughtful and committed photographer. It shows. I recommend it very highly.

Excellent Support and Super Slick Lean App

Repalced Canon EOS utiltiy I have used for years! The first capture app I’ve tried that matches and exceeds the native app. My fan speed has gone from 6000RPM to 2100RPM with the live view on, so muich more efficient and does not use all your resources like EOS utility. Focus peaking and clipping warnings are really helpful, as well as bracketing and intervalometer functions. Developer is very responsive, adding features I requested for enabling the remote timer and releasing the new version within a few weeks. Well worth the investment, and better support than Adobe producs! Can’t wait till image overlay is integrated so I can be rid of EOS utility forever!
