OptimumCS-Pro: Optimum Camera Settings for Imaging Professionals

Description

OptimumCS-Pro is the unique Optimum Camera Settings tool for imaging professionals — for photographers, cinematographers and videographers. As a professional, you spend a fortune on quality optics — OptimumCS-Pro helps you use that expensive gear to its full potential.

In all imaging work where you require the sharpest possible image across a depth range, OptimumCS-Pro is far superior to any depth of field calculator. You know that stopping down decreases image blur caused by defocus, but you also know that, on the other hand, it increases blur caused by diffraction. So you don't want to stop down too far. What, then, is the optimum aperture? And what is the optimum focus distance? OptimumCS-Pro is designed to answer precisely those questions.

And it alone gets the workflow right:
• Decide what are the nearest and furthest objects in your scene that need to be sharp.
• Set their distances in OptimumCS-Pro, and set the focal length of your lens.
• The app instantly displays the focus distance and aperture that minimise the combined effects of defocus blur and diffraction, for the sharpest image across the desired depth that the laws of physics will allow (and therefore, in all cases, sharper than what is achieved via traditional practice).

It couldn't be any easier, simpler and faster!

OptimumCS-Pro displays image sharpness information, so you'll know if your shot will be sharp enough to meet your needs. Also included is data on shooting at other than optimal settings. Can’t shoot at the optimum aperture, because, for example, you need a faster shutter speed afforded by a wider aperture? You’ll know exactly what the effect of your decisions will be.

OptimumCS-Pro's instant results are perfect for creative professionals who don’t want their tools to get in the way of their work or their art.

A few words on the "pro" version:

OptimumCS-Pro retains the elegant, uncluttered look of OptimumCS, adds expanded functionality and adds options to configure functionality to better meet individual needs:
• User-definable focal length presets allow lightning-fast focal length selection.
• Numerical readouts for optimum focus distance and aperture complement the analog scales.
• The optimum aperture snaps to your choice of the nearest 1/3 stop or the nearest 1/2 stop.
• The aperture scale shows 1/3 stop or 1/2 stop markers (user selectable).
• The aperture scale can be set to display apertures to f/22 or f/64.
• Several different distance scales, emphasising near or far distances, are available, as is one for use with Hansma’s focus shift method in large format photography.
• An optional "distance snap" function makes the distance slider even easier to use.
• The facility to set wavelength is available for those working in the infrared or ultraviolet part of the spectrum.
• The wavelength selection button gives a visual indication of the spectral range in which you are working (visible, IR or UV).
• A marker can be placed on the blur spot diameter scale as a reminder of what you consider acceptable blur sizes.

What's New in Version 5.0

Completely rewritten, with a cleaner, more up-to-date look, and a more interactive feel.
The list of improvements is a long one:
• Numerical readouts for optimum focus distance and aperture have been added as a complement to the analog scales.
• The optimum aperture snaps to your choice of the nearest 1/3 stop or the nearest 1/2 stop.
• The aperture scale now shows 1/3 stop or 1/2 stop markers (user selectable).
• The aperture scale can be set to display apertures to f/22 or f/64.
• A marker can be placed on the blur spot diameter scale as a reminder of what you consider acceptable blur sizes.
• Distance units are changed directly on the main screen by tapping the m / ft button.
• An optional "distance snap" function has been added, to make the distance slider even easier to use.
• The Settings screen has been simplified (but presents more options).
• The option for displaying image sharpness in line pairs per mm (a concept more familiar to physicists than photographers) has been removed in favour of simply showing blur spot diameter (circle of confusion).
• The distance scale selection buttons now give a visual indication of their intended use.
• The wavelength selection button on the main screen gives a visual indication of the spectral range in which you are working (visible, IR or UV).
• Labels can be hidden, for a cleaner interface.
• Several info (help) buttons have been added.
And there are lots of other, smaller improvements.
Oh, and there's a new icon, and the file size is much smaller.
Enjoy!
