Phocus Mobile enables you to remote control a Hasselblad camera and perform basic browsing and rating of images. It connects to a host that can either be the Phocus by Hasselblad software running on Mac or Windows or alternatively directly to one of our WiFi equipped cameras. Do note that for X1D II, CFV II cameras and later you will need Phocus Mobile 2 instead

Camera control includes setting parameters like aperture, shutter, exposure mode etc. It's possible to trigger auto focus, mirror up/down and of course image capture. All this is done via a control panel that neatly simulates the actual UI on the camera itself. Camera live view is also available. When browsing images you can zoom all the way into 100% and handle the star rating. Basic image metadata is available.

Compatible with iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. Requires iOS 10.0 or later.

Useful but slow

The wireless camera control (which is free, unlike certain other medium format camera makers) is useful in a studio setup when the camera has been set up out of reach but ultimately the Phocus desktop software does exactly the same thing. Sadly even on a super fast wifi connection the app is slow to load image previews and the like.

Thankyou Hasselblad!

In my first test this is working really well. I am using it to give to my clients while I shoot, so they have a separate place to view the images as the come in, and not crowd around my screen!

The remote camera control is neat, and will be good for some still life I do.

So far stable and secure. ;)

Not bad first attempt

Great idea but like all Hasselblad software a bit slow even on my i7 processor and fast network. I'm sure speed wise it will improve but always 1 step behind capture pro.
