Leaf Credo XF Compatibility: Tested & Approved
I had the opportunity to shoot the Phase One XF with the newly firmware enabled Leaf Credo 60 digital back. Shooting tethered to a MacBook pro via USB3, it was a seamless shooting experience, no different in workflow than shooting with an IQ series CCD back.
Updating via the Credo 60 from CF card took less than a minute and provided these additional benefits to Credo digital backs when paired with the Phase One XF:
•New XF camera controls: Remote focus control in Capture One: When using a Mamiya or a Schneider Auto Focus lens, the Live View Controls tool now shows a set of focus nudging buttons, providing course, fine and ultra-‐‑fine adjustment without having to reach for the camera and eliminating vibrations.
•Updating XF firmware from the digital back: When mounted on the XF, the Capture menu displays a new “XF” Menu, which enabled updating the body firmware from a CF card by pressing the Update Firmware button and following the on-‐‑screen instructions. It also enables viewing the current firmware versions for the body, lens and viewfinder.
Phase has delivered what Credo owners have been waiting for, with a firmware update that integrates Credo digital backs to the flagship XF with the same level of communication functionality as IQ1-series backs.
Capture Integration currently has XF in stock for our Leaf Mamiya users ready to upgrade.
