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.
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.
Adds support for iPhone X
Ratings and Reviews
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.
Love this App!
If you are a Hasselblad studio shooter, this one app alone may justify purchasing an iPad. Best part about this app is it just works upon launch with Phocus 2.6! After five days of use it has proved to be invaluable. A food stylist can now use the iPad to view the shot without having to turn completely around to look at the computer monitor. It also gets rid of too many people standing around the monitor and can quickly calm a nervous model by getting people off the set, since they can now view the shots from another part of the studio and rate the shots remotely. Works great with the iPhone too. Love the slick and beautiful capture interface especially since it is complete with mirror lock-up. Kudos to the developer on this one. Great job!
Does not work with X1D II
From everything I have read online, this app should be compatible with the new X1D2 50C. But beware...... it just does not work. Will not recognize the camera. And yes, i have connectivity set to IOS on the camera. Ashame.
