Focus Bracketing Comes in Kuuvik Capture 1.1

kc-focus-bracketToday I practically finished the focus bracketing feature in Kuuvik Capture. Of course it has to pass our rigorous testing procedure, but the features are considered final.

Speaking of the features. You can drive focus starting from either the closest or from the farthest point, in small/medium/large sized steps. What those steps mean is camera body and lens specific (a totally arbitrary value actually), so you have to test it before starting the bracket. Hint: Command + arrow in live view mode drives focus by small steps, while Command + Shift + arrow drives it in medium steps.

You can expose up to 30 images in a focus bracketed sequence. It can also be combined with mirror lock-up and the intervalometer, as usual. At the end of the sequence we try to focus your lens back to the starting position, but don’t rely on it if you need accurate positioning – some lenses are really crappy in this regard and are unable to drive focus by the same amount back and forth.

kc-15-bracketWe have also changed the maximum number of shots you can expose in other bracketing modes to 15. As you can see on the bracketing monitor, this number is usually more than the exposure range your camera is capable of, but some of you requested it, so we added it.

Version 1.1 is in private beta right now, and it is planned to be release early July. It will be a free upgrade for current Kuuvik Capture users.

The First Kuuvik Capture Intro Video

During March we were filming a few intro videos to show off some of the coolest features of Kuuvik Capture. The first one, showing how I created my generator room photo is now online on Vimeo.

I recommend you to maximize it and turn HD on – and watch for the synchronization between the camera and the app.

Enjoy & share!
