Leaf App

A couple weeks ago we picked our "Top Ten iPhone Apps for Photographers" and now more and more apps are coming out of the woodwork. Both Leaf and Epson are the latest companies to add their software to the growing pool of photo apps for the iPhone.

The Leaf Capture Remote app for the iPhone is an extension of Leaf Capture 11 workflow software. The free app allows allows photographers using Leaf digital backs and camera systems to view, zoom and pan high resolution Leaf RAW images on an Apple iPhone and iPod Touch.

Leaf says it's the first iPhone app to allow "real-time, on-set remote viewing of medium format images, enabling instant feedback on any shot."

The app is designed to let clients quickly review shots wirelessly on an iPhone while the photographer can continue to shoot. More info in the press release below.

The Epson iPrint app, on the other hand, is designed more for consumers than pros. The app, also free, lets users print wirelessly from their iPhone on Epson network capable printers such as the Artisan 810, 710, or Workforce 610.

More info on the Epson iPrint app is available in the second press release below.


Leaf releases Leaf Capture Remote App

Workflow tool for previewing Leaf RAW images on iPhone/iPod Touch

TEL AVIV, December 8, 2009 – Leaf Imaging announced today the immediate availability of Leaf Capture Remote – an application that extends Leaf Capture 11 workflow software, enabling remote image viewing on an Apple iPhone(TM), or iPod(R) Touch. The Leaf Capture Remote application allows photographers and digital operators using Leaf digital backs and camera systems to view, zoom and pan high resolution Leaf RAW images on an Apple iPhone and iPod Touch. It is the first application to permit real-time, on-set remote viewing of medium format images, enabling instant feedback on any shot.
Now, while a photographer is shooting tethered using Leaf Capture software, a client or creative director can view the images over a standard Wi-Fi network on an Apple mobile device.
“Leaf Capture Remote lets me quickly check my files when I can't see my laptop on location,” says Dutch-based professional photographer Frank Doorhof of Studio FD, “or I can just give my visitors an iPhone to browse and check it themselves without interrupting our workflow. Simply put -- it rocks.”
Leaf Capture Remote application version 1.0 is free and available now for download from Apple’s iPhone App Store. It supports all Leaf products that connect to Leaf Capture. (To find it, search for “Leaf Capture” in the Apple iTunes App Store.)
