Tethering for the serious photographer

Connecting your Canon EOS camera to a computer opens up new possibilities. You'll benefit from working on a large screen, precise exposure control and improved focusing accuracy — a must with today's high-megapixel sensors. Besides being lightning fast at basic tasks, a handful of advanced composition and evaluation tools make Kuuvik Capture an indispensable time-saver for the discerning architecture, landscape or studio photograper.

Live view on a higher level

From focusing assistance with real-time sharpening and peaking tools. Through intuitive navigation, focus pulling and alignment grid controls. And culminating in multi-point simultaneous live view* that makes optimizing depth of field and focusing tilt-shift lenses a breeze — the state-of-the-art live view helps you achieve better results faster. All the while being gentle to the MacBook's battery.

* Multi-point live view is available on select cameras only (see below).


Kuuvik Capture also brings the tethering advantage to the cinematographer. Think about cameras placed in hard-to-reach locations, or enclosed in a crash box. It’s much easier to set up and execute your shot if you see what you are doing — with the help of the app's advanced live view tools.

* Movie recording is supported on select cameras only (see below).

Rich automation toolset

From simple mirror lock-up and release automation, through 15-shot exposure brackets to 100-shot focus brackets, the app covers everything. You can freely combine brackets with the intervalometer and mirror lock-up, while the Bracketing Monitor oversees your settings and warns you about potential problems. You'll never want to revert to the camera's built-in automation features after trying Kuuvik Capture.

Star the best, trash the rest

Culling a shoot is as easy as selecting the best images and let Kuuvik Capture remove the rest. And this even works on images shoot untethered, outside of the app. Like on a wedding or sport event. The fast image decoding and display engine allows us to skip time consuming preview generation, which is a huge boon when working on thousands of images.

A RAW shooter's best friend

Kuuvik Capture aims to assist you in creating the best and highest quality images possible. This is why we focus on working with RAW files only. The RAW histogram and clipping warnings help you avoid exposure issues, while the special Unitary WB brings RAW-like histogram capability to the untethered camera. Utilizing industry-standard XMP metadata means that your RAW converter will pick up* where Kuuvik Capture finished its job.

* Requires an XMP-aware RAW converter, such as Adobe Photoshop Lightroom.

Stupendous App - I wish that there was a keystroke to open the photo directly in photoshop rather than having to right click it… slightly inneficient. Other than that, it’s a stupendous app
