PRESS RELEASE: Leaf Redesigns Aptus-II User Interface with release of Leaf Capture 11.5
Intuitive, User-Friendly Design Improves Handling
TEL AVIV, May 23 -- Leaf Imaging, a leading provider of digital camera backs for medium format cameras, today announced that its latest release of Leaf Capture software delivers a newly designed touch screen GUI (Graphic User Interface).
This redesigned Leaf GUI is more intuitive and user-friendly. Designed with the needs of professional photographers in mind, it offers improved workflow processes and quicker access to important tools through its new menu -- favorite settings. The new Leaf GUI's outdoor theme also makes exterior shooting much easier by improving visibility in high glare and reflection situations.
The new Leaf GUI is available for all models in the Leaf Aptus-II series including Leaf's latest product, the Leaf Aptus-II 12, an 80-megapixel digital back. In addition to the new GUI, the release of Leaf Capture 11.5 includes support for lens calibration when shooting to a CF card.
Leaf was the first digital back producer to offer customers a touch screen display, which at 3.5" is currently the largest available in the market.
Leading photographers who have already tested the new GUI have said:
"Works like a charm, very easy to find everything. Love the outside theme, very cool," Frank Doorhof observed.
"I like it. I like the camera settings area especially. The GUI seems to simplify my handling even more," Robb Williamson added.
Leaf Capture 11.5 also extends the existing Leaf Capture automatic lens calibration feature from tethered mode to enable its use while shooting on the go. Lens calibration files fix effects like lens fall-off and color casts which can appear when shooting with wide-angle lenses.
Leaf Capture 11.5 is free and available now for download from the Leaf Web site, at http://www.leaf-photography.com.
