Good to hear that a new version has been made available. I'm sure the lurkers on here will enjoy it.... they did enough moaning in the past about tethering not being possible Keep up the good work.

Pity my PC is in the living room and any photos I take are either in the garden or kitchen. I suppose it would be more use with a laptop. I've got one but never use it

I don't like small screens that's why I never use the laptop

Oddly I used Pocket PC's (at least 6 of them) before they made them trendy by incorporating a phone. Mine only had GPS and ran some good apps. I don't like smart phones either..... Full sized PC only nowdays with an Eye-Fi card

Hi mates!

I released the v 1.5.0 of WiFi Commander for PENTAX, in this version you can find:
1- Planned Shots: with this function you can set every shot parameter, also the AF point, and make a program of shots with an interval between each or specific date/time. Works in M / B timed / X modes.*
2- Live View enhancements: there will be a red square to indicate the focus point. If you use the LV zoom after the focus point selection you will have a zoom on the focus area.
3- Picture review enhancements: you can zoom also stored pictures.
4- LV Zoom K-70 bug: K-70 has a bug with Pentax LV zoom implementation, I made a dedicated version of this function to have a working zoom also with the K-70
5- Improved post-shot logic to speed up times
6- Improved "latest pictures taken" panels
7- In app Focus switch now reads from the in camera setting
8- Performances improvements and bugfixes

* I'm very proud of the Planned Shots feature, let me add some words about.
You have to put the camera on M or B timed or X mode, then select the exposure values, filters, WB, size, etc and when ready press the new "shot" button with a calendar inside. Now in the Planned Shots tab you will find a new Program. In the same way you can add shots with different parameters. If you want to edit a shot you can select it and press the edit button or double click the row in a white cell. To define a delay (HH:MM:SS format) between the shots or a specific date/time you have to double click the green cells.
When you set the shot parameters you can also define a specific focus area, to do this you have to enable the LiveView and click on that area of the image. Save or Edit with the new "shot" button with the calendar inside. In the Planned Shots tab you can create new Programs, move up/down shots inside the programs, export and import your Programs.... etc...

I made an "Overview and Tutorial" video on youtube:

I hope that you enjoy my efforts. The app is still free but if it is useful for your job or passion, and you can, please make a PayPal donation from my website to support the development.
Next step will be the mac porting!!!


All the best,

Andrea
