    Phocus newbie...

    Hi all
    Is there anyone who uses Phocus professionally? I'm thinking of buying a H4D camera and i will have to use it for tethered shooting. I have never used it but am not totally against the idea
    Could you tell me what you guys think?
    Thanks

    Phocus is great. Very stable tethered shooting. Better than tethering to Lightroom IMO.

    Here's a few things to read/watch:

    i second marc's comment.. it's very good and gets the best out of Hasselblad raw's and correct's lense distortion too,it's easy to get use to if your familiar with lightroom as the gui is similar ,I usefully output everything as 16bit tiff in Profoto RGB.

    I am used to C1 though. Is it a step back?
    also can you batch process in Phocus?
    thanks

    Here is a short video that shows batch processing Hasselblad Tech Tips - Phocus Batch Processing - YouTube

    Phocus is not as feature rich as C1P but Blads now ship with LR4 which works well in combination with Phocus,the most notable advantage of C1P is the layers function for local adjustment but you have the adjustment brush in LR.

    I tether with Phocus and do some processing but mainly use LR4 for processing. Very easy to tether with Phocus. LR4 has the advantages of the adjustment brush and easy to add custom camera profiles.
