OLYMPUS OLYMPUS

Features

OLYMPUS Capture

Remote Control

You can easily control the camera from a computer, just as if you were using the camera itself.

Versatile parameter changes

Camera settings are easy to change with an interface based on Olympus's popular Super Control Panel. In addition, the camera can be controlled from either the camera or the computer at any time without having to switch live view settings since the camera is mirrorless. The software is also compatible with the Olympus wireless RC flash system.

Supports various shooting scenes

In addition to normal shooting, you can use sequential shooting, bulb, composite, and interval shooting. You can also use manual focus when the focus mode is set to S-AF + MF, or MF.

Supports various shooting styles

For shutter release control, a half-press button and a full-press button have been prepared and can be operated independent of each other. And because AEL and AFL modes are reflected in the software, you can control AE and AF using familiar settings.

Greater freedom and ease of use in Super Control Panel

It is now possible to customise the layout and order of items on Super Control Panel so only those you need for shooting are displayed. Intuitive customisation is possible while checking the Live View display in the setting screen

Live View

This displays the camera's live view in real time on a computer.

High-speed, high-resolution Live View

In live view, you can check shooting status the same way as with an EVF image showing the camera level gauge, AF Target frame, focus status, aperture preview, LV boost, etc.You can also magnify any portion of the image for better AF control and focusing.Also, the live view can be displayed on multiple monitors.

(New for Ver. 1.1)

PNG format is now supported for overlay images.

Pursuit of easy shooting
In live view you can place the grid display in any location you like as well as use the composite display for overlay images, making aligning shooting positions easy.

Post-shooting workflow support

You can automatically download images to a computer after shooting.

Image transfer

Because images are also recorded on the camera's SD card, there is no need to worry about losing image data to any computer malfunctions.

(New for Ver. 1.1)
Saving images directly to a computer has been added to image save destination. It is also possible to set the computer file transfer priority. Combining these settings makes transfer to a computer up to 4 times faster than before.

Linking and using with image management software

By linking with the image management and editing software Olympus Viewer 3 available from Olympus, recorded images can immediately be viewed and edited. Downloaded images can be automatically displayed and viewed on multiple monitors.
Software such as Phase One Capture One and Adobe Photoshop Lightroom can be launched simultaneously with Olympus Viewer 3, so you can smoothly switch to editing with software you are used to after capturing images using Olympus Capture.
With such feature, you can use Olympus camera control without changing your current workflow.
