Version 3.1 of my Kuuvik Capture tethering app is available on the Mac App Store. Along the usual addition of new cameras (the 77D / 9000D and 800D / Rebel T7i / Kiss X9i this time), this version brings support for movie recording on the 6D and 80D, and extends multi-point live view support to the 80D.
But there’s one more thing. Well, actually two.
The Preferences window is now tabbed to make it smaller vertically. This is needed to fit it on smaller screens (such as the 12″ MacBook).
And the app has a new function, with an accompanying preference. Synchronize date/time with the Mac will set the date, the time, and the time zone (on cameras that can handle it) of the camera to match your Mac’s each time a connection to Kuuvik Capture is made. If you were fed up with Canon’s awkward time zone naming (the same city name could refer to different time zones on different cameras), this is a remedy. The synchronization process also sets the daylight saving time flag, so there’s no need to fiddle with your cameras at the beginning and the end of daylight savings periods – just connect them to Kuuvik Capture.
The complete list of new features, changes and fixes is available in the release notes.
Version 3.1 is a free update for existing Kuuvik Capture 2.x and 3.0 users. New users can purchase the app for 84.99 USD/EUR from the Mac App Store.
My book, Kuuvik Capture Inside Out, was also updated to reflect the new features.
So, while you are downloading and trying out time synchronization, it’s time for me to open that bottle of Laphroaig Select waiting on my coffee table. Slàinte!
