  • ‘Zoom Speed’ – high speed and variable supporti,[iii] | Ability to change zoom speed remotely
  • ‘Lock Operation Parts’ functionality to maximise efficiency of shooting applicationsi,[iv]

 

Sony today launched an updated version of its Camera Remote Software Development kit (SDK), adding compatibility with the newly announced Alpha 7 IV and key functionality to support third parties in the development of bespoke applications utilizing the industry-leading performance of Sony cameras.

For more information, visit Sony’s Alpha Universe website.

Yasuo Baba, Director, Digital Imaging, Sony Europe BV said: “The expansion of our B2B offerings is a fundamental part of Sony’s long-term vision in the imaging market and since the launch of our original Camera Remote SDK, we have worked with some incredibly exciting customers to design some fascinating imaging applications. We are fully committed to the evolution of this SDK and will continue to add functionality based upon customer feedback.”

Version 1.05 of the Camera Remote SDK, which is available to download for free from today, offers new features that are particularly important in the areas of E-commerce, speed camera systems and contents creation. A new ‘Still Image Capture Complete Notification’ supports greater efficiency in constant shooting situations and the newly added ability to ‘Preset Focus and Zoom’iii is a feature that has been requested by many customers.

A new remote ‘Contents Transfer’ mode for all content captured means that cameras can remain in situ whilst the results are reviewed which contributes to an efficient camera workflow. And the newly added feature of ‘Zoom Speed’, being able to change zoom speed remotely, paves the way for speedier capture.iii To minimize the possibility of erroneous operation, developers can now also disable hardware keys on the camera by ‘Lock Operation Parts’ itself.iv
