Hasselblad updates Phocus software

Hasselblad has released Phocus 2.9, the latest version of its free software for Mac and Windows. The major new feature is support for closed loop colour calibration. Users can create a colour calibration made using the exact lightning setup used for the shoot and apply this directly to the raw camera data.

There’s a new Colour Calibration pop-up menu with an Edit option, which can automatically create a calibration that you can then finetune. You’ll need a calibration chart like the X-Rite Color Checker, with the standard, SG and DC versions all supported.

There’s also a Scene Calibration tool, which allows you to set a white balance, based on the ambient lighting, and which you can use to fine tune an image.
