1- Important fix in the Shot function for K-1 and K-1 Mark II
1- K3 Mark III Monochrome support: here we go
2- RICOH GRIII exposure mode selection: Now you can change the exposure mode directly from the app.
3- Multi shot improvements: More fix and optimizations on shot modes that rely in multi shot: bracketing, continuous, composite.
1- KF and upcoming camera support: PENTAX has released the KF camera based on the K-70 and another camera is on his way to be released...a camera with very few colors...
2- Movie mode support: with recent cameras like K-3 Mark III and KP now you can use the movie mode and start/stop the registration through my software.
3- Multi shot improvements: I made some fix and optimizations on shot modes that rely in multi shot: bracketing, continuous, composite.
1- KATEN support: PENTAX has released a picture style for the summer shots usable only with certain lenses and it will release many more picture styles related to the the other seasons.
2- Image download improvements: some optimizations on the download of a single picture.
1- K3 Mark III and GRIII compatibility: the much sought after compatibility is finally here! K3 Mark III, and GRIII family, are totally new cameras with a completely different software inside (this meant much work also because I don't own this camera). Specific functions are: LV autorotation, Metering mode change, Extra small sized picture autodownload, Drive modes support, etc...
2- Bi-directional communications: now you can operate from the camera and the app updates itself. Very useful on studio sessions to check the shots on a bigger screen and autodownload the pictures.
3- Composition Adjustments: with KP and K3 Mark III you can now use the Composition Adjustments, also in the Planned Shots!
4- Drive modes: with KP and K3 Mark III are available many drive modes like Bracketing and Continuous.
5- Intervalometer & Self-Timer: easy access to a simplified Intervalometer and Self-Timer function.
6- Histogram: histogram for pictures and Live View (real time).
7- Planned Shots enhancements: useful functions to clone and to massively set a delay.
8- Bugfixes and performance optimizations.
1- Shots auto download: in the preferences now you can define a folder in your PC where auto download the shots that you take with the app, also the Planned Shots!
2- LV Zoom KP fix: KP, like the K-70, has a bug with the Pentax LV zoom implementation, I made a dedicated version of this function to have a working zoom also with the KP
3- Advices on how speed up pictures download: there were some findings about how to speed up the pictures download using the WiFi connection with the camera.
1- Planned Shots: with this function you can set every shot parameter, also the AF point, and make a program of shots with an interval between each or specific date/time. Works in M / B timed / X modes.*
2- Live View enhancements: there will be a red square to indicate the focus point. If you use the LV zoom after the focus point selection you will have a zoom on the focus area.
3- Picture review enhancements: you can zoom also stored pictures.
4- LV Zoom K-70 bug: K-70 has a bug with Pentax LV zoom implementation, I made a dedicated version of this function to have a working zoom also with the K-70
5- Improved post-shot logic to speed up times
6- Improved "latest pictures taken" panels
7- In app Focus switch now reads from the in camera setting
*About 1: you have to put the camera on M or B timed or X mode, then select the exposure values, filters, WB, size, etc and then press the new "shot" button with a calendar inside. Now in the Planned Shots tab you will find a new Program. In the same way you can add shots with different parameters. If you want to edit a shot you can select it and press the edit button or double click the row in a white cell. To define a delay between the shots or a specific date you have to double click the green cells. When you set the shot parameters you can also define a specific focus area, to do this you have to enable the LiveView and click on that area of the image. Save or Edit with the new "shot" button with the calendar inside. In the Planned Shots tab you can create new Programs, move up/down shots inside the programs, export and import your Programs.... etc...
