Multi-point live view, focus peaking, Dual Histogram (RAW + processed), visual bracketing monitor, industrial strength reliability and swift operation are the cornerstones of this premium Canon EOS tethering app.

Tethering for the Serious Photographer

Connecting your 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 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.

* 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 provide special tools for working with RAW files. The Dual Histogram and RAW-based clipping warnings help you avoid exposure issues, while the Unitary WB brings RAW-like histogram capability to the untethered camera. Utilizing industry-standard XMP metadata means that your RAW converter could pick up where Kuuvik Capture finished its job.

You may need to upgrade the camera's firmware to the latest available version to be able to use it with Kuuvik Capture.

Built-in Wi-Fi must be disabled when connected via USB as it blocks the USB port when enabled.

Wi-Fi and/or Ethernet connection is supported on all cameras with built-in Wi-Fi and via the optional Canon WFT-E7 (5D series, 7D II), W-E1 (5DS/R) or WFT-E6/E8 (for Wi-Fi on 1D series) transmitters.


What's New

Version 3.3.2

• Wi-Fi and Ethernet camera connections now continue uninterrupted when the camera or the wireless transmitter erroneously stops advertising itself on the network.
• Fixed a crash that might happen during long exposures in Bulb mode.
• Corrected a possible hang and erratic download behavior when shooting RAW+JPG in an exposure sequence with a pre-2017 camera.

Ratings and Reviews



Bought Kuuvik on the power of reviews. I was looking for an easier way to tether my camera to my Mac. Installation was a breeze and I was able to set up my camera with the app and started taking pix! I also appreciate the upgrades as they come. Thanks for a well made product that I can use.

T/S Lens Focus


Great for focusing tilt/shift lens. Architect

Competant Capture for the Mac


I bought this program after reading about it on a photographer’s forum. Part of the appeal is that Version 2.0 was designed with the 50 megapixel Canon 5DSr in mind. This camera generates 225MB raw files. Kuuvik Capture 2 handles the files quickly, images appear a few seconds after the capture bar is hit, much faster than Lightroom for example. This is a capture program with ideal features and camera controls: So far I’ve tried live view, auto focus select point, focus peaking for manual focus, , an intervalometer, mirror lock up with variable times. Everything works as advertised. You can choose from full manual, aperture preferred or shutter preferred functions, as on the Canon cameras.

I noted only one minor issue, a tendency for the AF to hunt in a tight shot in lower light. The AF on the camera snapped into place right away. I don’t know what the reason is, but it would be a minor inconvenience for most photographers. Based on my experience, and I’ve used many capture programs in the past 10 years, I’d recommend Kuuvik 2.0 highly.
