Phase One XF firmware update adds new features

XF-updatePhase One has released an updated firmware for their new XF Camera body.

Waist Level Focus Confirmation

With a newly introduced HoneyBee AF we are adding direct focus confirmation to the exposure feed back on the XF OneTouch UI. Giving full capture control with the Waist Level Finder. With a simple and easy reference for focus, available at a moments notice, you’ll be able to ensure focus without missing a beat.

Hyperfocal Point Calibration

Use Capture One PRO to calibrate and save the hyperfocal point on each of your Phase One lenses. With the Hyperfocal Tool you can easily dial in each lenses perfect “sweet spot” for hyperfocal focus. With the hyperfocal point saved for the specific lens, you can select the stored point at a moments notice to ensure perfectly sharp images with maximum hyperfocal focus achieved.

Seismographic Vibration Delay

Set your camera up to wait until the camera is absolutely still. Image blur from camera shake can be the deciding factor between a perfectly sharp or unacceptably soft image. The XF Camera Systems Seismograph Vibration delay will wait until the camera is absolutely still to capture your vision, ensuring that no camera shake will ever be introduced into the captured image.

BullsEye Level

Access this tool on the XF OneTouch UI to easily adjust the alignment of the camera system, using the XF Camera Body’s 3 axis accelerometer. The BullsEye Level tool will ensure the camera is perfectly set for special applications, such as architecture, panoramic stitching or landscape imagery.

Histogram on XF Grip display

Review of your captured data is crucial. The Histogram, being the most accurate and immediate representation of your captured data is now available just after capture or at a moments notice on the XF OneTouch UI.

Focus Step from Capture One on IQ1, IQ2 and IQ3

Precision is everything when it comes to capturing the perfect image. The XF Camera System now provides you with lens focus control directly from Capture One. Real-time results in Live View and complete control provide you with the ultimate in focus accuracy over your composition. Whether your camera is out of reach or the difference in critical focus is too small to achieve by hand, the Focus Step tool can give you the control you need.
