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 H5D, H6D and X1D cameras. Do note that for connecting directly to 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 13.0 or later.

What’s New

Version 2.3.4

- certain network configurations could prevent proper connection to a host, this has been fixed
- various cosmetic issues, and a potential crash issue related to the control panel has been fixed
- mirror up status is now correctly synced in the modern control panel

Not bad

I am a H-series user
It is a good app just for preview images instantly.
But the quality of preview is very low.

Works great!!

I’m using with X1D.

Unlike mobile companion apps I’ve used from other vendors, this app works surprisingly well. It lacks a lot of features but the ones it has a working for me well.

The app includes all the basic stuff you’d expect like live view, focus controls, exposure controls, etc.

I’m giving it 4 stars because there’s some key nice-to-have features missing such and the app feels very 1.0. For example, no live histogram, need to switch out of live view to change exposure settings and take exposure, etc.

Overall, nice job.

Cannot be more instable...

Phocus app for iMac crashes all the time, Hasselblad not only don’t know why but don’t do anything about it.
This app is bad as well and I generally not recommend using Phocus app nor Phocus for iMac!!!
Avoid Hasselblad as a whole! I have used Hasselblad film and now digital for the last 15-20y and the brand isn’t good anymore, quality went down and price went up.
