Sofortbild 1.4 Beta 2 for D610

A new Sofortbild beta is out, this time adding support for the Nikon D610, in addition to what b1 had to offer. Please sign up on HockeyApp if you have a D610 and are willing to test. One or two more testers for D4s and Df wouldn’t hurt either. Thank you!

In the meantime, Nikon released their development kit for the D5500, but unfortunately it differs quite a lot from previous SDKs, so there’s no easy or quick way to integrate it. We are looking into possible solutions, but it’ll take a while. Sorry about that.

Nikon has also announced the brand-new D7200, but that isn’t even shipping yet, so no need to ask us for support. A software development kit for third parties might still be months out. Given the changes for the D5500, we have to assume that this one will also be very hard to support.

Hi Florian, the link prompts: This recruitment has ended. Thanks for your interest!

Thanks,

Sorry about that, fixed now. Just invited you directly.

Hello Florian!

I have been waiting so long to see my D610 supported and I would love to help testing the beta’s.

I am getting the same message “This recruitment has ended”
Can I still offer my help?

Cabral

says:

Can I also try the beta version? Tried to enter but… denied > “This recruitment has ended”

Jay

says:

Any idea on an ETA for the 1.4 final release? I’m anxious to try it out with my D750.

Florian

says:

A good starting point would be to get some feedback from the beta testers that we gave access. Unfortunately we haven’t received a single message saying it does or doesn’t work.

Cheers,

I have tested the Beta2 with a D610. Unfortunately the D610 is still not detected by the Sofortbild app. I sent you a similar feedback over HockeyApp on 24 March. So I wonder why you did not receive a single feedback until now.

Florian

says:

I am sorry, didn’t see the feedback in the HockeyApp UI! Replied in the meantime…

Hi, I have tested beta 2 with a d610 and it does work for me. Although sometimes the second image is delayed wrong after taking the picture. The saved images are not affected.

More feedback to come.

Thanks,

Thomas

Hi Florian,
I did some further tests with the beta2. I found some issues with zooming the pictures. When I use the two finger gesture to zoom in the picture then the center of the view jumps to lower left corner of the picture. What I expect is that that either current center of the view stays at the same position in the picture or that the position where the mouse points to stay fixed (look at the Mac OS X Preview app for the zoom behavior).
The second issue with zoom is, that every second picture is shown with 100% zoom regardless of my desired zoom level.

Regards,
Thomas

Florian

says:

Thank you very much for the feedback, Thomas! Issue 1 is well known, but probably not easy to fix. The problem is in OS X, not our app, but we’ll try if we find a workaround. Issue 2 sounds like a bug on our side, we’ll investigate.

Great I am in now. Is there a reason why the shooting button is disabled, when I enable live view? D5300 with beta2 on 10.10.3

Florian

says:

Yes, there is. Nikon cameras won’t take a picture unless you switch off live view. Same applies when operating the camera directly, with the small difference that it disables and re-enables live view automatically when pressing the shutter. I take that as a feature request. 😉

Jay

says:

I second that as a feature request! Also, like I mentioned in my beta notes, I’d love to have the option to display JPG previews when shooting in JPG or JPG+RAW.

Norm

says:

I noted at Hockeyapp that that beta is over? I have a D5300 and I would like to see how this app performs with my camera, is it possible to still get a copy of the beta, or are you about to release it?

Florian

says:

Hi Norm,

comments need to be approved first, otherwise the site would be spammed within the hour.

Hello Florian, thanks for the access to beta 2, I tried it in my D5300 this evening and here are some initial thoughts.. I noted that if I activate Live View, I cannot take a picture until I close it?

The display does not show me which mode I am in, though the various settings do enable and disable depending on which mode you are in. Can the app show me mode selected?

Can the exposure be shown more like it is on the camera? -*****0*****+, I know its probably a nitpick, but I find that view easier to make adjustments?

Can the app adjust the focus point? If not is easier said than done?

I guess I am sort of comparing it to Nikon’s app which I’ve seen in trial mode, which of course is not inexpensive, which makes your work so great for what you do provide… Thanks for your feedback If this is not the best place for feedback, point me in the right direction….

Keen to test for the beta on my D610 and D750.

Thanks!

Hi, a bit behind the curve here, but I’d really like the chance to test this out with my D810.

Thanks

Bob

says:

So i recently just plugged not realizing my D810 doesn’t work with my current version. I’m looking forward to beta testing the new 1.4v. I’ve got a D810 and I have a photoshoot this Saturday. Any possible way I can get invited to beta test?

Hello,
I am a French user of a Nikon D5300 and Lightroom for direct shooting. But I just found the sofortbid capacity for LiveView with a model of apparail oldest picture I would have liked filled test your software for my Nikon D5300. Would it be possible to give me access to your new Beta2 Sofortbid of 1.4.

Thanks a lot.

Hi Florian,

I have a D810 and was wondering if Sofortbild would support. Unfortunately 1.4 is not released yet and would like to ask to attend as a tester?

I would love to try this with my Df, but the beta has ended and yet 1.4 is not released? Wouldn’t the beta run until you ship? Anyway, if you want someone to try the software with the Nikon Df let me know.

says:

Hi, is there any way to use my D610? As 1.3 version does not work and still cannot get 1.4…
I really would love to use it.
Thanks

Hi, we’re testing out our D810 at the Archive and I’d like to try it out with Sofortbild rather than Lightroom, might there be room for another beta-tester or perhaps a release date for the next version? Many thanks. ZS

Thomas

says:

This beta version has expired since some weeks. So, it is not longer usable. Do you have any plans to release that Sofortbild version with D610 support?

Emmanuel

says:

Hello. I have a 4-hour photo shooting on Friday with about 200 people to shoot. I planned to use Sofortbild and hopefully tried in advance to figure out that the app does not support the D610 yet. Last time I used Sofortbild I haven’t updated the camera… Is there a way I can get access to that beta program? I would much much appreciate! Thanks, Emmanuel

Emmanuel

says:

Hello! I have just changed my camera to a D610 and didn’t realise it was incompatible with sofortbild. I am running a 4-hour photo shoot on Friday with 200 people expected. Would it be possible to obtain a beta version of sofortbild for that event? Thanks in advance! Much appreciated.

Rick Simpson

says:

I’ve installed Sofortbild version 1.3 (85), and it works OK with a D300S. However, I need a version that will work with a D610. The Beta testing period appears to have ended some months ago, but no currently available version works with D610.

Is it still possible to download the 1.4 Beta 2 with D610 support, or is there a new non-beta version coming out soon?

I’m happy to test for the D610 if you still need testers.

says:

Hi there …
What is thet status on this beta, seems like the beta testing is closed and no update since december? When do you expect to release the final version?

Ron

says:

Is there any chance to get access to the beta while the new version is still in the works? I’ve got a D610 and it’d be great to be able to work with the beta, rather than having nothing at the time being.
Thanks!
