Desktop and mobile versions of Hasselblad's image-processing software have been enhanced with an array of new features.
Hasselblad had released updates to its Phocus software for desktop and mobile devices.
Phocus 3.6 for desktop enhances Hasselblad’s image-processing software with new features that expand the creative postproduction options for medium-format photographers, including Focus Bracketing, Film Grain tool and Adaptive Chromatic Aberration correction.
Tethered execution of Focus Bracketing sequences is now possible via additional functionality in the Capture Sequencer tool. X, H and 907X cameras are supported.
The new Film Grain tool enables adding a flexible simulation of film grain to images. Three types of simulations are available with the ability to change the following four parameters for each: amount, granularity, roughness and color.
The Adaptive Chromatic Aberration option makes corrections of lens chromatic aberration in single-shot images based on image analysis rather than theoretical data, as was done previously. This also allows for the correction of chromatic aberration in images shot on third-party lenses.
Phocus Mobile 2 1.2 adds the following improvements: a Defringe tool to remove purple and green fringes, the ability to edit JPEG images, support for simultaneous capture to both SD card and iPad, full synchronization of camera white balance, and general UI and system improvements. Phocus Mobile 2 allows the Hasselblad image-editing process to be taken out in the field with X1D II 50C and 907X cameras.
