Apps for the Apple iPhone, especially those designed specifically for photographers, have proven incredibly creative and useful. One that has been welcomed by studio photographers is Mamiya’s Leaf Capture Remote for the new Mamiya DM system. This app transforms an Apple iPhone or iPod Touch into a remote image viewer.
This is the first application to permit real-time, on-set remote viewing of medium format images, enabling instant feedback on any shot.Now, while the photographer is shooting in a tethered mode, other people on set – the creative director, client, stylist, etc. – can watch via a standard Wi-Fi network, without hindering the movement of the photographer or crowding around one monitor. The images are hi-res and the software allows viewers to pan and zoom using their compatible Apple device.
Leaf Capture Remote application version 1.0 is free and available now for download from Apple’s iPhone App Store. It supports any Mamiya DM or DL medium format digital system.
The Mamiya DM system of DSLR kits and Digital Backs offers photographers the ultimate in big-sensor image quality at very affordable prices. With models offering 22, 28, 33, and 56 megapixels, the Mamiya DM system continues to make Mamiya the brand of choice for today’s top professional photographers.
