Viewfinder Pro

What’s new

Album and View Packages:

You no longer have to switch back and forth between Viewfinder and the Camera Roll! Starting this release View Packages and a built-in Album replace the images saved to the Camera Roll.

With the Album you can:
★ Browse just the Views you created with Viewfinder – won’t have to flip over family pics any more!
★ Send any View Package (up to 5 at the same time) via email. The mail contains information about the simulated equipment and a clickable map link in addition to the image.
★ Show the View’s location on a map – with your location so that you can easily navigate back to where the View was captured.
★ Import images saved to the Camera Roll with previous versions to keep all the work you did earlier.
★ Export Views to the Camera Roll.

You’ll be able to access the saved View Packages via iTunes file sharing – similar to accessing GPX track logs in the current version. Downloading such a package will create a folder on your computer with a .jpg and a .vimx metadata file in it.

The Album can be accessed via the Extras panel, and via a new function that you can assign to any Function Button.

Additional new features:
★ Viewfinder Handbook Extra: this on-line manual is also available at http://www.direstudio.com/viewfinder/handbook
★ Experimental iPad 2 support.
★ Simplified Chinese language.
★ Added Nikon D5100, Panasonic G3 and oversized sensor modes of Panasonic GH2.

Fixes:
★ Duplicated Sigma SD15 camera removed.
★ Minor stability and performance improvements.
