Advanced live view

What is Kuuvik Capture? It’s a feature-rich tethering application for Mac OS X. It has all the remote shooting functionality you find in other similar software, but it offers much more than simple live view. Kuuvik Capture offers some functionality that can make a difference in your workflow:

  • easy and intuitive interface
  • advanced live view
  • split view of the live view image with simultaneous evaluation of focus and depth of field
  • parametric sharpening along with focus peaking overlay – in real time and applied to the camera’s live view stream
  • unique raw-image-based histogram completed with over and underexposure warning
  • ability to program your camera’s custom white balance
  • exposure sequence automation (HDR, time-lapse)
  • and much more…

Currently, Kuuvik Capture is available at an introductory price, so you get an even better bargain when applying the coupon code (see below how to).

  • Licenses for Canon EOS 60D, 650D, 600D, 550D, 1100D: $79.99 – with coupon code: $63.99
  • Licenses for Canon EOS-1D X, 1D Mark IV, 1Ds Mark III, 5D Mark III, 5D Mark II, 6D, 7D: $99.99 – with coupon code $79.99

How to get the 20% discount. First, download the 30 day trial version of Kuuvik Capture here (scroll down to the bottom of the page). Then, you can buy the license from within the application following the Kuuvik Capture->License path. After that you click on the “Buy” button. The coupon code (canonwatch.com) needs to be entered right before checkout in the webshop. The discount will be applied against the purchase price. Happy tethering! :-)

Rumor: EF-M 11-22mm f/4-5.6 IS STM Lens For Canon EOS M May Be Around The Corner!

EF-M 11-22mm 

Digicame-info (translated) broke the news just a few minutes ago: It appears that a new lens for the Canon EOS M system is around the corner. It should be an image stabilized 11-22mm f/4-5.6 lens, the EF 11-22mm f/4-5.6 IS STM. Unfortunately there are no more specs leaked for this lens, just that the filter diameter will be 55mm. I guess the lens will be very compact.

Such a wide-angle zoom was murmured in the past, so I think the rumor is quite plausible. Moreover, Canon’s Masaya Maeda clearly stated that Canon is working on more lenses for the EOS M system.

If you live in Germany, top rated eBay seller medialand4you (99.5% positive ratings) has a hot deal: Canon EOS M with EF-M 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM lens for ridicolous Eur 339.99 (click here).

The price of the EOS M tumbled down in the past months, check it in the following shops: Amazon, B&H, Adorama, Canon USA, J&R, Digitalrev, Borrow Lenses, eBay
