Blog / LensTutorial 1.4: Outdoor-readiness, ultra-fast lenses and Point’n shoot cameras
We’re pleased to note that new version of LensTutorial for iPhone and iPad is available on the Appstore.
In this release you can find:
- New cameras: 3400+ digital cameras known to date. We’ve reworked our camera database to include more digital cameras from ancient point and shoot ones to latest DSLRs. If you find your model missing do not hesitate to request it on our Support page.
- Account for lens field curvature correction. Field curvature is an advanced lens property that deserves special attention: lenses are generally spherical and gather light in one point, but digital camera sensor is a plane not a single point, so depth of field should be straight not spherical.
- Hi-contrast scheme with large screen fonts for outdoor use. This feature was requested by a number of LensTutorial users that found parameter numbers and other textual information to be unreadable due to small fonts and low contrast. We’ve added a special feature to fix that. Be sure to check this option in LensTutorial Settings to see if it fits your eyes better.
- Built-In lens support for Point & Shoot and SLR-like cameras. We’ve added 2400+ built-in lens specification. For each of 2400 cameras with embedded non-interchangeable lens you can choose to use original built-in lens in LensTutorial simulation. This will allow to learn limitations and capabilities of your particular setup so you can better exploit it.
- Super-fast f/0.75 aperture for Aperture Upgrade. Yes there are lenses that go beyond f/1 to a stunning f/0.75. Such ultra fast lens aperture is not very usable in general case, but some people do find it’s performance to have a special artistic charm.
