PRESS RELEASE: Mamiya Announces New Remote Viewing Software
Gives professional photographers more creative freedom during busy photo shoots
Elmsford, NY – July 13, 2010 – Mamiya announces today the release of new remote viewing software for the DM-series and RZ33 digital cameras and backs. Featuring newly enhanced resolution capabilities for the Apple® iPad™ as well as other features for both the Apple iPhone® and iPad, the new Leaf Capture Remote v. 2.0 viewing App offers Mamiya Digital photographers a more convenient viewing solution for both clients and assistants. And its familiar user interface makes the software easy to use for even the most novice user.
While shooting tethered to a Mac, the new Leaf Capture Remote v 2.0 App allows photographers additional creative freedom by enabling one or more iPad or any iPhone, including iPhone 4, devices to act as remote image viewers. Clients can view images from a photo shoot from the comfort of a photographer’s Wi-Fi enabled client room. Assistants can instantly check focus and details even when at a distance from a photographer’s main computer. And stylists can see what the camera sees—all without crowding around the photographer or main computer area.
“Workflow efficiency is the photographer’s key to profitable studio operations and client satisfaction. Nowhere is the efficiency more important than during the review of images at a photo shoot,” said Mamiya Product Marketing Manager Mike Edwards. “Thanks to the new Leaf Capture Remote Viewing App for the Apple iPad and iPhone, Mamiya users are able to easily and wirelessly share their images with clients and assistants in real time.”
What’s new in Leaf Capture Remote Version 2.0:
Native support for the Apple iPad
Support for Apple iPhone 4 high resolution retina display
Pause/Play functionality - Users can stop the screen update during a shoot and focus on a specific image.
Support for RZ33 and all DM-series models
Flip-through image browsing
Improved 1:1 image quality
