OptimumCS-Pro 2, an advanced image sharpness calculating tool for photographers and videographers, is now available for iPhone and iPod Touch at just £4.99. It’s the only tool that utilises an optimum settings algorithm to calculate outputs and now features some great advances too. Here’s how it works: you decide what depth of field you want and the app displays the focus distance and aperture that minimise the combined effects of defocus blur and diffraction. If you’re shooting scenes where there is more than one object of interest, where these are located at different distances from the camera, and where you want maximum image sharpness, OptimumCS-Pro 2 is, literally, the only tool that does the job. The user sets the distances to the nearest and furthest objects, and OptimumCS-Pro 2 instantly displays the focus distance and aperture for the sharpest image across the desired distance range that the laws of physics will allow. Also see its sister app, TrueDoF-Pro.
New in OptimumCS-Pro 2: User-definable focal length presets, for lightning-fast focal length selection; Distance scales switchable from the main screen; An improved, easier to use, more elegant settings screen; A new, expanded ‘links’ screen; and instructions on using OptimumCS-Pro 2 with tilt-shift lenses.
