USER GUIDE
Welcome to Phocus
It is our hope that you will open Phocus, take a look around, and be inspired to get to work with an imaging workflow
that develops according to the way you want things to ­happen.
Uncompromising Image Quality
The Phocus RAW processor provides the ultimate in processing ­quality for Hasselblad digital images, including:
•
Digital lens corrections for color aberration, distortion and ­vignetting (DAC I, II, and III)
•
Hasselblad Natural Color Solution (HNCS) for perfect colors
•
Moiré removal directly upon raw data, preserving image detail
•
Selective adjustments using the Adjustment Layers tool
•
GPU usage for image processing on compatible computers. For faster image exports and improved viewer performance when zoomed to 100% and above.
Phocus for Mac supports standard file formats such as TIFF, JPEG, DNG and PNG while Phocus for Windows supports
TIFF and JPEG (see File Support section for full details and Hasselblad website for updates). Phocus for Mac also
supports files from more than 150 cameras, including Canon, Nikon, Leica, Sony, Fuji, Olympus, etc.
Perfect Viewing Quality
The Viewer uses all the advanced features contained in Phocus to deliver image viewing quality that matches every
detail of what you will see later in your chosen image editing program if you wish to edit further. In addition, the Phocus Viewer allows you to customize layout and composition to suit your current or desired workflow, providing a wide
range of options including full view, compare, browse, horizontal, or vertical view, and so on. You can have multiple
folders open simultaneously for side-by-side viewing, comparison, and selection.
Camera Controls
Phocus also provides special extended controls with which to operate a Hasselblad camera. These features, such
as live video for easier photo shoots and workflow, or the ability to control the focus when the camera is in a remote
position or when the digital capture unit is mounted on a view camera, bring an entirely new level of flexibility to the
way you shoot. Add to that the Phocus Mobile application for iPhone / iPod and iPads and you have the ultimate in
remote control and shared viewing.
Flexible Workflow
Phocus features easy-to-use options that allow you to customize your set-up to suit a range of different workflow situations– simple or advanced. Multiple folders can be open at the same time, while Quick Collection folders make handling your choices simple and easy. Image export to a number of file formats combined with pre-setting of options.
Customized workflow layouts can be edited, saved, exported and imported to ensure continuity of workflow across
different workstations. For added choice, Phocus Mobile sets you free from being right behind the camera while Phocus Quick offers super fast JPEGs for almost immediate sorting, handling and distribution for rush jobs.
Metadata
The basic metadata architecture in Phocus follows the IPTC Core standard with XMP. Working with Hasselblad 3F raw
files, the extended metadata architecture available provides for detailed and accurate image adjustment, cataloguing
and indexing, providing extra benefits such as:
Phocus
•
Extensive and easy overview of file information and its adjustment history.
•
All settings with regards to capture, angle, equipment, tilt/shift amount, extensions etc. are stored as metadata
directly in the image file for full interaction with Digital Lens Corrections (DAC).

USER GUIDE
Leading Edge Moiré Removal Technology
With Phocus, the moiré that can occur on even extremely high resolution Hasselblad images is effectively removed
in most cases. Moiré removal is automatically performed directly on the raw data, leaving image quality intact and
eliminating the need to carry out special masking selections or other manual procedures, saving hours of tedious
post-production work. The moiré tool works with Hasselblad raw files only.
Compatibility
Phocus runs on Macintosh and Windows platforms that use recent operating systems. All USB and FireWire based
Hasselblad camera units are supported. Please check the Phocus Read-Me notes for details, requirements and restrictions.
Computer configuration recommendations
Medium-format image file editing requires a moderate amount of processing power from a computer to ensure
smooth and rapid workflow. Please check the Read Me files for recommendations about hardware, graphics cards,
memory requirements and configurations etc., to obtain the optimum performance from Phocus.
Integration of self-calibrating Eizo displays
Calibration of these displays can be carried out directly from Phocus. This ensures that the display is set up to provide the best possible viewing results of Hasselblad images. If an eligible monitor is connected, Phocus will automatically display a dialog concerning calibration. If you choose to go ahead you will be guided to an extra Eizo tab in the
Preferences window where it is possible to set up calibration options and start the process. This preference tab will
also let you toggle whether Phocus should handle calibration or not.
It should be noted, however, that it is not currently possible to make a seamless integration with calibrations made
by Eizo’s own ColorNavigator software. Therefore once you have made a calibration using Phocus, launching ColorNavigator will switch the display back to the last calibration made by itself. When you switch back to running Phocus
you will be prompted about this change and will be offered the opportunity of restoring the calibration made by Phocus or, alternatively, disallow the handling of calibration from Phocus. As just running the ColorNavigator Agent will
cause interference it is recommended that you switch off the option in the ColorNavigator preferences dialog.
The calibration target chosen by Phocus will of course be optimized to work with Hasselblad RGB and Hasselblad L*
RGB working spaces but it should be noted that the resulting calibration will also work well even when using a somewhat smaller working space such as Adobe RGB in Photoshop. However, if you routinely view images in much smaller
working spaces such as sRGB you should make a special calibration for this purpose using the Eizo Color Navigator
software.
........................................................
Updates
Phocus, in line with any Hasselblad product, is continually reviewed. Please occasionally check on the Hasselblad
website – www.hasselblad.com – for news as well as the latest updates.

USER GUIDE
About this manual
This manual describes the workings of Phocus (Mac/Windows UK versions from version 2.7.1 or earlier and up to
version 3.5) and how to use it on Macintosh and Windows platforms. The graphical user interfaces are very similar
in appearance so the illustrations are based mainly on Macintosh screen ­captures with additional Windows captures
where necessary. Likewise, the operative procedures are almost identical across the two platforms, with the largest
difference being shortcuts. Again, these are illustrated and explained where ­necessary. Shortcuts are indicated by
red text and symbols for Macintosh users and blue text and symbols for ­Windows users. Some actions require a right
click with a two-button mouse. On Mac platforms this can also be achieved by holding the down the Ctrl key while
clicking with a one-button mouse.
The manual is purposefully aimed at experienced photographers, rather than beginners, who are committed to
exploiting the tremendous opportunities of professional level digital photography. It is assumed, therefore, that the
reader already has a reasonable amount of proficiency in working on a computer and working with image editing software. Concepts such as menu structures, file systems, file storage, tools, etc, should be familiar. It is also assumed
that certain digital photographic concepts such as color correction, sharpening, curves etc., are also familiar. In that
way, the manual acts more as an informational source to specifically support the elements and building blocks of
Phocus, rather than a step-by-step guide through image editing generalities. For non cover-to-cover readers, some
information is purposefully repeated and appears on several pages.
We encourage you to explore and discover the tremendous possibilities that Phocus offers. The philosophy of the
program does not follow a fixed workflow or methodology. It is you who decides how to exploit the most from it, using
customization and presets to create a personalized working environment. It is you who picks the tools and fine-tunes
methods to get the most out of your images.
You are recommended therefore to have the manual at hand in the early stages to ensure that you are taking advantage of what Phocus can offer. Old habits might hinder your progress towards the optimum in workflow and results,
so occasionally dip into this manual to ensure you have everything that you need at your fingertips.
Please be sure to read the 'Read Me' files that accompany a Phocus download for the latest updated information.
New in this version
The following new or improved functions has been added in Phocus version 3.5:
Defringe filter
We have now added a Defringe tool to help removing purple and green fringes in the image. See page 51. For even
more precise control, the Defringe filter is also added as an adjustment layer parameter. See page 78.
Improved contrast/brightness algorithm and new luma curve
This release introduces new improved algorithms for contrast and brightness featuring amongst other thing better
preservation if color saturation, thereby providing a more natural result. As we need to provide backward compatibility the old algorithms are still available when the exposure tool version is set to 1 or 2, the new algorithm is used
when the tool version is set to 3. At the same time we have added a luma gradation curve working on a similar principle, this curve will work no matter what exposure tool version is selected. See page 51.
Various performance enhancements
Increased GPU usage and other optimizations will result in faster exports and 100% view update - of course much
depending on the specific hardware configuration.

Phocus primarily fully supports Hasselblad 3FR and 3F files with more limited
support for other format files. The Mac platform allows file viewing and limited
editing of not only TIFF, JPEG, DNG and PNG files for example,but also more than
150 third-party digital cameras, including Canon, Nikon, Leaf, Leica, Sony, Fuji,
Olympus etc. The Windows platform supports TIFF and JPEG files.
Hasselblad raw files can also be processed with other selected software applications, namely, Adobe Camera Raw / Lightroom and Apple Aperture. Note, however,
that using Phocus is the most comprehensive method. The Phocus and Adobe
methods can produce almost identical results (in most cases) regarding RAW conversion so it is a matter of personal choice regarding which method would best suit your
preferred workflow. Alternatively you can use Apple Aperture though you should take
note that the benefits of DAC and HNCS etc, will be lost in this case. Please check
the Phocus Read-Me and our web page for updated information.
3FR: These files are a result of captures stored on CF cards generated by untethered Hasselblad equipment. They are visible as 3FR badged thumbnails and
remain as such until selected and 'imported' where they then become 3F files.
3F: These files are a result of either captures generated by tethered Hasselblad
equipment or as a result of 3FR files being processed to completion within
Phocus. 3F files do not have to be 'imported' and can be adjusted and exported
immediately. Exported 3F files include integrated metadata.
MP4: MP4 video files can be previewed in the viewer.
3FV: RAW video files (H6D-50c and H6D-100c) can be exported to Cinema DNG or
Apple ProRes.

USER GUIDE
To sum up, capture files can be stored as 3FR files (from a CF card) for later processing in Phocus or other software, or they can be stored as 3F files (as a result
of tethered shooting or 3FR files processed and converted in Phocus). In all cases if
you keep the original 3FR/3F files, you will also retain the possibility of reprocessing
them in the future in later versions of Phocus or other software to take advantage of
eventual improvements and developments.
Other (Mac only): This group comprises a list of various formats, both raw and
non-raw, proprietary and general. These files are initially read and processed via
the integral Macintosh OS X support before they are adopted by Phocus. This
means the contents of a folder containing a mix of image-format files can be
viewed in its entirety in Phocus.
As these files can contain data that is written differently to Hasselblad files, there
can therefore be a restriction on the effect that tools in Phocus could have. In
practice this means you should expect the following tools to be inactive: Highlight
recovery, Shadow fill, Clarity, Lens corrections, Noise reduction and Scene
calibration.
However, other tools can be freely used and in order to retain the adjustments, so
called sidecar files are created. These are separate files that contain the necessary data that any following application needs to reconstruct the image the way you
intended in Phocus. The files use the same name or designation that the original
raw file had but to distinguish them from the originals, the sidecar files acquire a
new suffix: .phos. These sidecar files are automatically stored in the same folder as
the original files. The important point to remember here is that when transferring any
non-Hasselblad files that have been adjusted in Phocus to another folder, to another
computer or to an external storage medium, you must remember to include the sidecar files too. Otherwise all the changes and corrections you made in Phocus will be
lost until you re-unite them. When moving or copying files inside Phocus, however,
the sidecar files are automatically copied with the raw file.
Be aware that initial previews of third party raw files might reflect the consequences
of processing according to the manufacturer's standards. This would be particularly
noticeable in regard to curve and color renditions. So, for every adjusted or exported
file, Phocus creates and stores individual preview files in the Preview Cache folder
that resides in the Phocus Application support folder.
Though not necessarily normal workflow practice, adjustments can also be made on
non-raw files if desired.
Please note:
Image files from all Hasselblad USB and FireWire based digital camera products
are supported.

Layouts can be configured to speed up workflow and facilitate certain actions. For example, you might prefer the
very simplified Light layout for fast checking and exportation and another layout complete with specific settings
for individual image adjustments.
Layouts can be changed by the options on the Toolbar.
Your own customized layouts can be saved/edited by
Toolbar > Layouts > Edit.
In the menu Phocus > Preferences, triggers can also
be assigned to trigger specific layouts, such as when
connecting a camera, for example.

Thumbnail viewing, filtering and sorting
Thumbnails can be rated using either the IAA
system or the Star system or both. IAA rating is
automatically applied to files at capture with H
camera/ CFV back firmware from before 2014 and
appears in Phocus. All IAA files can be re-rated in
Phocus if desired.
Rating is applied to selected files by pressing
numerical keys on the keyboard as follows:
STAR rating
Star rating is applied in Phocus only. When applied
and embedded at export (this is an option on the
Large IPTC list), it will also be accessible and useable in other applications such as Apple Aperture
and Adobe Lightroom.
Both rating systems can be exploited for sorting
purposes in the Thumbnail Browser using different
types of filtering.

•
Captures are stored directly in the chosen capture destination folder. You
should therefore always check beforehand that you have selected the
­correct folder (see Capture Destination section for more information).
•
All tethered captures are stored as lossless compressed 3F files in the
­capture destination folder.
•
Using the Camera tool you can accurately control the camera setup. There
are a variety of controls available under this tool, depending on the camera model. These include, apart from shutter-speed, aperture etc., even
special focusing options allowing for remote focus increments using the “-“
or “+” buttons and modifier keys to control focus and depth of field.
•
The available set of active controls in the Camera tool will differ according
to the digital camera model. H- and X-system cameras allow more control
than V-system cameras due to their greater integration and overall more
­advanced data-controlled capabilities.
•
The Mirror Up button on the Camera tool only functions with H system
cameras.

An audio and a visual aid are also available to help you make very accurate

When using a CMOS based camera, there are two checkboxes at the top of
the Viewer window:
Use capture aperture: When checked, the aperture will be what was set
before entering Live View. When unchecked the Viewer will always start with

RAW Video
The H6D-50c and H6D-100c cameras are capable of
producing RAW video in a proprietary format, 3FV.
Photo: Ove Bengtsson
USER GUIDE
RAW Video
Viewing Video
When you click on the 3FV thumbnail and move the cursor to the Viewer, you
will get a Transport Tool. This makes it possible to preview and trim start
and end points of the video file before exporting.
Export Raw Video
RAW Video in 3FV format can be exported directly from the memory card
without first importing. Just click the video thumbnail and select Export.
In addition to CinemaDNG it is also possible to export raw video as ProRes
(requires Phocus version 3.2 or later). Unlike CinemaDNG which is a raw
format - ProRes exports will actually reflect adjustments made in Phocus
and also take advantage of lens corrections and the HNCS color handling. In
other words - the image processing of each frame of a ProRes export is basically the same that you would get when exporting still images.
When exporting you will find factory output presets for both CinemaDNG and
the 6 different ProRes variants. It should be noted that the factory ProRes
presets all convert to the Hasselblad Rec.709 color space. Technically this
will ensure a perfect match when playing back in applications like QuickTime
Player or Final Cut Pro. In reality this output profile does not follow the
exact standard when it comes to the transfer curve, but for legacy reasons
it’s what is expected in these applications. If you need to generate Rec.709
output that matches the standard exactly you can create your own output
presets and select to use the Rec. ITU-R BT.709-5 profile that is part of a
default Mac OS installation.
Adjusting Video
When viewing 3FV files you will now find an Adjustment Mode check box in
the upper left corner. In order to view the effect of adjustments on raw video
you will need to enable this adjustment mode. When not in adjustment mode
you will just see the preview video that the camera has embedded in the 3FV.
This non-adjustment mode can still be useful as it will provide faster navigation and playback and specifically if you only intent to export CinemaDNG
there will be no reason to enable adjustment mode. Note that the mode can
also be switched via the command in the View menu and it’s associated
keyboard short-cut Cmd-Alt-A (Mac) Ctrl-Alt-A (PC)
You can use most tools to adjust the video. One execption is Noise Reduction
that cannot be used. Note that some adjustments will prolong the exporting
time.
Also note that adjustment settings are global for the full clip no matter which
frame was shown when the adjustment was edited.

Presets - general
Presets are essentially shortcuts to default or user
­created and stored settings. They save time and effort
as well as provide security regarding various automated tasks.

In Phocus, presets occur as an integral part of a
number of different actions. Some presets can also
be accessed from different locations. For example,
in Output Preview in Tools, you might choose TIFF
as your preferred format in the Preset menu. When
exporting, the options ­ not only displays this choice
in the Output Preset menu but also allows you to
change it again.
A change made here, to Layers PSD for instance, is
­immediately reflected back in the Output Preview
tool. In other words, a preset is an independent feature that can be accessed, changed and checked at
various locations. References to it are continually and
automatically updated.

When exporting an image, the Export window displays
a list of options, the first being destination 1 for the
file, chosen in the conventional manner.
9
The lower part of the window lists: Output Preset 2,
Name Preset 3, Job Name 4 etc. Output Preset
and Name Preset have Edit buttons.
10
Clicking on the Edit button for Output Preset will display an options panel: File format 5, PPI 6, Dimensions 7 and Output profile 8.
11
In this example, the File Format shows TIFF as the
choice, which would have been shown in the Output Preview tool. (The choices are often displayed
dimmed because the presets are locked. Clicking on
the unlock symbol 9 (or the plus symbol at bottom left
of list to create a new preset) allows access to the
menus).

Adjustment layers
Using the Adjustment Layers tool you can add a number of adjustment layers for selective adjustments. For such a layer you can control which parts of
the image are affected using a combination of these tools:
•
Brush
•
Gradient
•
Radial Gradient.
See full explanation in the Adjustment Layers chapter on page 78.

Camera
Reflects the settings from a tethered camera, according to model. An
H- or X-system model will provide more information—focus mode, exposure mode, for example—than a V-system model due to its greater digital
­capabilities and integration. See description of Live Video / Tethered
Capture for full details.
Capture Info
Lists the camera metadata recorded at the time of capture and is dependent
on camera model and equipment used. Metadata is an integral part of each
individual image file. A Hasselblad H- or X-system camera model will provide
more information than a V-system model due to its greater digital capabilities
and integration.

Capture Sequencer
Enables various kind of tethered capture automation such as: interval
capture, self timer and exposure bracketing. There are a number of factory
presets but you can set up custom sequences and save them as additional
user presets.
A sequence consists of a number of capture steps. For each step you can
define aperture and/or shutter offsets relative to the exposure settings set
when the sequence is started. Using the cycle button you can set up a number of repeats of all steps and indicate a timing interval for the repeats. It is
also possible to set up a pre-delay thereby delaying the start of the sequence
after pressing play.
Color Correction
1
For selective and global color correction. The colour picker can be used to
isolate a tone and then modify it either by using the Hue, Saturation and
Lightness sliders or by the color wheel tool.
Global changes can be made using the Saturation and Vibrancy sliders.
To make specific tonal changes:
2
1.
Select the color picker 1 . (Keep Shift pressed down for multiple samples)
2.
Place the picker on the desired tone in the image in Viewer.
A corresponding point 2 will appear on the color wheel.
3.
Hue, Saturation and Lightness can be adjusted by:
a) moving the sliders 3, or,
b) using the arrow keys on the keyboard, or,
c) clicking on the point on the wheel and dragging it to form an arrow 4,
which can be extended, shortened and rotated to alter the settings. You
can also increase or decrease the coverage of the segment by dragging
the boundary markers as well as rotating the segment within the color
circle.

Crop & Orientation
A list of constraints is available (default: None) to set the format as well as
orientation of the Crop tool. Clicking on the Mask icon will access a window
where both color and opacity of the mask can be selected.
The Straighten function has quick 90° buttons as well as a slider that allows
a finer adjustment of +20° to -20° shift in orientation.
The Straighten function is also accessible by way of the Viewer Toolbar.
Clicking on the Straighten icon will convert the arrow cursor into a cross.
Place this cross on any chosen point on the image and trace a landscape or
portrait line (real or imaginary) which you want to become a perpendicular
landscape or portrait. The image automatically aligns to the line orientation
you chose. With the Crop & Orientation tool open, you can additionally read
off the number of degrees the image has been rotated.
To make larger adjustments, press on one of the rotation arrow icons (in the
Crop & Orientation tool) to make a 90° adjustment, using the respective
icon for clockwise or anti-clockwise orientation. The 'R' icon illustrates the
current orientation and changes accordingly (click to toggle). Use the slider to
make additional fine adjustments. You can also reposition the cropped area
by the arrow keys
When using rotation or keystone correction there may be situations where it’s
useful to make a crop that extends outside the transformed image. In this
situation you will need to check the Allow crop outside checkbox as otherwise the crop will always be restricted to fit inside the image.

Curves
Curve adjustments can be made as a combined RGB setting or by selected
individual channels. Click in the list 1 to select any of the options. Choosing
Luma instead of RGB will have much less impact on color and saturation
and will basically only affect luminosity.
To adjust the curve, click and drag on the graph. Each time you click on a
new point, you will create a gravity point, which will pull the curve toward
itself. You do not need to click on the actual curve. This system makes sure
that the curve is always smooth. Ensure to check the check box on the Tool
header bar so that the preview image will update to reflect the changes.
Tip
CURVES
To move a gravity point,
either drag it with the
mouse or select it and
then use the arrow keys.
Hold down the Ctrl /  key
to move the point in larger
increments.
Click the eyedropper icon and mouse over the areas on the Viewer image
that you want to sample. The value is automatically represented on the curve.
Clicking on the sampled area will fix a point on the graph. Revert by pressing
delete or backspace. Options contain presets for consistent curve settings
within a batch.
To remove gravity points
from a curve, press the
Delete or Backspace key.

The Dust Removal tool is designed to quickly remove spots caused by dust
particles on the sensor. This tool can be used to clean up images either individually or, in combination with the Modify tool, for batch processing.
Activate the tool by clicking 3 or by pressing "D" on the keyboard. Locate and
then mark the spot(s). The position of the dust tool circle 4 can be altered by
dragging in the center of the marker circle. Radius can be altered either by
the Radius slider 5, by dragging when placing the marker or by dragging the
circle edge after positioning 6. Amount is adjusted by a slider 7 or by manually typing in a value in the text tool box.
You can also draw selections 7 by holding down Alt / Ctrl for irregular marks.
Multiple placings can be made. These can be individually selected by the
arrows 9 in the tool and then individually adjusted (press Delete to remove a
spot). You can remove dust spots from a complete batch of images by selecting your images, clicking the tool disclosure icon and selecting Modify Dust
Removal of Selected Files or by using Modify found in the Toolbar. Dust
Removal appears as an item on the Modify dialog check list.
Exposure
EV, contrast, brightness, highlight recovery, shadow fill and clarity can be set
by sliders or value fields.
Use the popup to select algorithm v1, v2 or v3. V2 includes improved recovery, shadow fill and clarity algorithms. The new improved v3 also includes
improved contrast and brightness algorithms. V3 are default for new images
and old images without recovery, shadow fill or clarity adjustments.
Very briefly, highlight recovery reclaims data from the raw file to repair burnt
out highlights, shadow fill improves the quality of shadow areas while clarity
improves the contrast of mid-tones to give them 'punch'. For clarity adjustments, a new Detail slider has been added to control how much details in the
image are affected by the clarity adjustment.
Grayscale
Temporarily converts image to a grayscale (while retaining RGB file components). Use RGB slider controls to adjust balance and effect. Files can be
exported as color component grayscale (using RGB or CMYK channels) or as
a pure grayscale. Uncheck the box in the Grayscale tool to revert back to
color if required.

Histogram
/Shift key
Graphs of combined or separate channels can be displayed (default: combined). Shadow, highlight and gamma settings can be made in the value
fields or by using the slider controls. There are two checkboxes: Output
Values and Endpoints. Check the Output Values box to view the histogram
with all user adjustments. Check the Endpoints box to show top sliders and
value fields for adjustment. (if the endpoints are not at default setting − 0
and 255 − then the values will appear in the top corners even if the box is
not checked). F-stop marks are visible when the histogram is in input mode.
The tool is resizeable (drag lower section of tool) to accommodate the extra
information.
By holding down the
/ Shift key when using the sliders you can see when
clipping occurs (in the Viewer) in the shadows and highlights. This produces
the same effect as the Shadow Warning and Highlight Warning.
Tip
To change the color and threshold point settings of these warning demarcations, hold down the Ctrl / Ctrl keys while clicking on either the shadow or
highlight slider control in the Histogram tool. A Warning Options panel
opens, allowing changes.
When using Recovery and
Shadow Fill you can use
highlight/shadow warnings as a guide.
IPTC Core
The IPTC Core tool allows you to apply presets of IPTC metadata to files
about creators, contact information, archive/library descriptions, standard
job types, etc.
Click the menu icon on the Tool header to access IPTC Views option panel
for editing/creating and choosing presets.
Edit allows the choosing of informational items that are included in the preset
lists called Small, Medium and Large (for example, you might always want
to include your name, so that would be checked in all three preset lists, but
you might only want to include location in the medium and large preset lists).
With any file, click on Small, Medium or Large to reveal the preset contents as a drop down list in the tool, thereby providing the information that

Horizontal tool: align the guides along horizontal lines in the
subject that should appear parallel
Rectangle tool: align the four corners to match a part of the image
that should be rectangular
The Vertical and Horizontal sliders can be used to manually adjust the
image. The Amount slider controls the percentage of the full theoretical
correction applied. It will default to 80% as typically this will achieve a natural
look when working with vertical corrections. In other cases it may be necessary to set it to 100% in order to achieve the full correction. Aspect changes
the aspect of the image. A negative value will scale the image vertically and a
positive value scale horizontally.

Lens Corrections
The interface automatically reflects the origins of the file selected. That is,
files from an H camera will prompt the H lens correction tool and files from a
V camera will prompt the V lens correction tool.
H- and X-system cameras offer greater digital integration than V-system cameras and so can supply more data. H files take this data into account in the
background and automatically apply it to the Lens Correction tool, whereas
data noted at the time of capture from V-cameras has to be input manually.
This latter situation also applies to CF lens (V system lenses) use with a CF
lens adapter on H cameras. In some cases, where the lens and/or aperture
is known, the settings will be preset when importing or when making a tethered capture.
Three corrections are available: Chromatic aberration, Distortion and
Vignetting.
Chromatic aberration: Corrects “Color fringing”.
Distortion: Corrects lens distortion.
Vignetting: Reduces vignetting. Check the box, then use the slider control or
type in a value.

With the Navigator & Zoom tool open, select the Zoom tool from the
Viewer toolbar and click on Viewer image over the detail you want to check.
A track frame appears on the image in the tool view 1 (with the same aspect
ratio as the Viewer window). Select the frame and move it to a new area
if required. Frame size in tool image changes according to magnification of
Viewer image.
Alternatively, hover the mouse over the lower part of the tool image to reveal
a control panel 2 with three buttons – a plus, a minus and a track button.
Selecting the track button (shortcut toggle: L) converts the arrow cursor to a
track cursor for the Viewer image while the plus and minus control enlargement for the tool image. The track cursor can be initially placed and then
fixed by mousing down. Clicking elsewhere in the Viewer afterwards will automatically disable the track cursor to reveal the regular cursor again.
A floating variation of the tool can also be chosen, again, providing access
to the three buttons if required. This produces a much larger tool window. In
addition, the lower right hand corner of the window has a drag handle to alter
the size.
Both click and drag as well as mouse scroll wheels can be used in the tool
window (tabbed or floating) for navigation in zoomed mode. Holding down the
Alt key will allow zooming in the tool window with a scroll wheel and Alt/clicking will toggle the zoomed view to 100%.

Noise Filter
Reduces noise in the image. Basic noise reduction is in place for all images,
but certain textures under certain lighting conditions can produce extra
noise.
The filtering tools are:
Color: Neutralizes the coloration of colored 'noisy' pixels, typically in areas
with very fine detail such as hair or on fine textured materials.
Luminance: For use with long exposures and high ISO rated images.
Reduces the effect of pixels showing up as 'noise' in dark areas.
Moiré: Reduces moiré effects typically originating from patterned materials
showing interference with the frequencies of the pixel structure on the sensor.
Note: a more flexible method to remove moiré is to use Adjustment Layers.
With this method you can perform selective moiré removal.
Please note that due to its nature, moiré will seldom be cured 100%.
Remove Checkerboard patterns: This option will remove the patterns
that may occur when using for instance extreme wide angle lenses and/or
dramatic tilt/shift settings.

by your profiling tool it is important to export with an output preset where the
profile is set to 'Source' - this will result in no ICC transformations being applied to the image data. In addition, please note that a custom profile will be
dependent on the working space selected when creating the profile.
Response:
Standard: Approaching what would be considered a standard film response.
Reproduction: Linear response which is gained in order to match the theoretical ISO response
Reproduction Low Gain: Linear but without the gain to match ISO. This will
utilize the full dynamic response of the sensor but at an ISO response that is
slightly lower than nominal
Negative: A reverse linear curve
Sharpness
Sharpness contains four controls: Amount, Radius, Threshold and Dark
Limit. See separate sources for in-depth explanations of sharpening tools
and methods.
Amount: Controls the strength of the sharpening effect. Depending on
­image, a value between 80 and 200 is recommended as a starting point.
Radius: The larger the radius, the more extensive the sharpening effect will
be. The setting depends on the nature of the image and resolution.
Generally, use a large radius with lower-resolution images and a smaller
radius for high-resolution output.
Threshold: Controls the point above or below which pixels are affected.
Values are from 0 through 255. Very low settings will sharpen most pixels,
and might create unwanted noise in soft texture, such as skin, for example.
Higher settings will restrict the changes to detailed areas only.
Dark limit: Sets the brightness level below which the filter has no effect.
This will prevent the filter from intensifying noise or unwanted textures.
The higher the number, the less extensive the sharpening effect will be. Depending on the image, a setting between 0 and 20 is recommended.
Click on the menu icon to access the presets: Default, Medium, High and
Portrait.

Scene Calibration
This tool helps to remove a color cast and/or uneven illumination caused by
lighting variations. It has two checkboxes: Remove cast and Equalize intensity. The slider for Equalize intensity is used for fine-tuning to the intensity
adjustment.
Remove cast: Particularly useful when tilt and shift are used, for example,
where a partial unwanted color cast can sometimes be produced.
Equalize intensity: Neutralizes any overall luminance discrepancies. Useful
in reproduction work and similar to even out slight variations in lighting for a
more uniform distribution. The slider, ranging from 0 to 110%, allows for finetuning to the intensity correction.
When using H System lenses, ensure that any Vignetting setting in the Lens
Correction tool is turned off as a combination of the two will overcorrect the
image.
Procedure:
Uncorrected
1.
Capture your main image as usual.
2.
Capture the scene calibration image using the same camera settings
(tilt, shift, lens etc.) A simple method is to use an opaque white plastic
sheet in front of the lens. Make sure the plastic sheet is thick enough to
eliminate all details from the image. Normally a 1.5 mm thick material
will be sufficient.
3.
If working untethered, import both images into Phocus.
4.
Select the white frame and using the Scene Calibration tool click the Create option. You will be prompted for a name.
5.
Now select the actual image to be corrected.
6.
From the drop down selection arrow of the scene calibration tool select
the calibration file you have just created. Ensure the tool is switched on
(small tick box in top right hand corner of tool box).
7.
Now tick the remove cast box and the Equalize intensity box if required.
8.
If the correction is too harsh drag the intensity slider to the left until the
correction is at the desired amount.
9.
If required, the same scene correction image can be applied to multiple
images using the Modify command.
Corrected
White Balance
The white balance tool includes:
Preset: A menu containing standard presets as well as other preset possibilities. Multiple selected files can also modified at the same time to ensure
consistent color within a batch.
Temp: Adjusts the color temperature according to the Kelvin scale. Slider or
value input.
Tint: Compensates for any green (slide to the left) or magenta cast (slide to
the right) or by value input.
The neutralization tool on the Viewer toolbar can also be used.

Mobile:
A special version of Phocus – Phocus Mobile – is available for the Apple
iPhone®, iPad® and iPod Touch®. It offers the option of wireless connection
enabling users to remotely browse, zoom and rate images. This allows individuals to view images on separate electronic devices rather than gathering
around a single computer.
Phocus Mobile also allows users to remotely operate and trigger a tethered
camera, providing control of exposure mode, f/stop, shutter speed, ISO,
metering mode and other important capture information, all presented on a
virtual camera display. This is additionally particularly useful when the camera is located in a difficult-to-access position.
For a detailed description of Phocus Mobile, please see "Phocus Mobile" on
page 97.
Phocus Mobile setup
Phocus Mobile is available free of charge from the Apple App store and will
automatically be installed onto your chosen device. Windows setups may additionally require changes to the Windows firewall setting; see note below.
Phocus Mobile and Windows
On the Windows platform, Phocus Mobile utilizes Apple Bonjour (version
2.0.2 or later) and so this must be installed first. Apple Bonjour is a local
service discovery application (to enable local wireless connections) that is
an integral part of the Apple computer operative system that also works
with Windows. It is automatically installed with Apple iTunes but can also be
separately downloaded from the Apple support website.
It is advisable to update your Windows system with the latest service packs
before installation. The Windows firewall will probably have to be manually
set to allow Phocus to communicate with Phocus Mobile. Typically this
would mean that a firewall prompt dialog will appear on the first launch of
Phocus Mobile where you should check Domain networks ... (1) and Private
networks ... (2) to allow connection. However, due to the variety of possible
Windows configurations, connection issues may still occur. In these instances you should verify the correct installation of Apple Bonjour in the Computer Management > Services and Applications > Services window.

USER GUIDE
Adjustments − editing management
By exploiting the possibilities that Phocus offers you can not only save a great
deal of time but improve the efficiency and security in this area of your workflow when editing images.
In Phocus, edits can be applied singly or collectively. Sets of edits are referred
to as Adjustments.
Note that an Adjustment is an internal function within Phocus only. When the
file is exported into another format it has the desired edit instructions applied
to the exported file. That is, all edits are nondestructive in Phocus and so 3F
files remain unaffected and can be recalled at a later date as identical as they
were when first processed from the raw data. So, in simple terms, you cannot
"press the wrong button" in Phocus because the original file always remains.
As you apply each edit (color balance, curves, exposure, etc.) you can progressively build up a history of the changes made. When you are satisfied with your
choice of modifications, you can save the collective changes as Adjustments.
These are added to and stored inside the raw file to become Embedded. (It is
by way of the Embedded list that you can revert back to any stage of image
development that you wish).
Note
Current only illustrates the current
state regarding
accumulated edits.
It does not necessarily imply the current state has been
saved.
Note
You must press Load
(or Return) to apply
a selected preset.
Adjustments can also be saved for future use on other files and will appear
beneath the User heading. Adjustments can also be applied simultaneously
to a whole batch of files by using the Modify tool. This means you can always
go back to something you preferred a few minutes ago or back to something
you preferred several months ago, for example. In that way, a whole folder of
captures can be simultaneously edited in exactly the same way, securely and
automatically, in accordance with your own or your clients preferences, for
example.
Adjustments can also be imported and exported. This feature is very useful
for sharing, when on location, when renting equipment etc.
As a starting point, Phocus has some Factory presets that can either be
used directly or as a basis for additional fine-tuning and saving as customized
presets.
There are a number of controls that exploit the underlying Adjustments
concept:
•
A dialog for applying adjustments during image import.
Note
•
A Modify function for applying adjustments to a batch of images.
Only saved adjustments appear on the
Embedded list.
•
Options for how current adjustments are saved (Ask Before Saving, etc.)
•
A tool for managing adjustments.
•
A Save changes button that saves current adjustments.
•
A Copy to User function that saves current adjustments as custom presets.
Therefore, it is advisable to build up your understanding of Adjustments to see
how they can work for you in your situation and improve your workflow.
See the following chart for an overview of the the idea behind Adjustments.

All embedded adjustments are stored directly within a 3F file. With other
file formats, adjustments are stored in sidecar files. If files are moved
within Phocus, then the adjustments are automatically transferred too.
However, if files are copied outside of Phocus or to another computer/
storage device then you should ensure that the appropriate sidecar files
are copied too in the case of other formats. 3F files remain unaffected
with regard to copying as they always retain their integral adjustment
history.
Current: This represents the current total set of adjustments for the
selected image. It therefore visually illustrates the effect on the current
image made by any loaded adjustment plus any changes made afterwards. Note that the Current set of adjustments might not necessarily
have been saved as an adjustment at this point. Can also generate a

Camera Configuration - H5D only
The Camera Configuration tool in Phocus offers a very thorough and secure way of creating comprehensive profiles
for the H5D. There are three windows – Controls, Exposure and General – that present virtually all parameters to enable total control at the press of a button. This means that separate and specific custom profiles created in advance
can cover a number of shooting scenarios leaving virtually nothing to chance. In addition these profiles can be easily
imported and exported. For instance, you can create a special profile to suit a specific type of shoot and keep it on
a memory stick or laptop. So, when renting an H5D for example, you only have to upload the saved profile to ensure
that all parameters have been reset without you having to go through each detail – simple and secure.
The interface has three tabs at the top, Controls, Exposure and General, that access the windows. Descriptive information appears as you mouse over the various menus and extra tool tips are additionally available as an option. To
take an example, the Controls window is illustrated here. On the left are two lists: Camera and Library. The Camera
list includes the various available configuration profiles already stored in the camera – the profile currently in use as
well as the default settings and those you have created or imported from other sources. Library contains the factory
presets stored on disk.
The Camera Configuration interface makes it easy to go through the parameters logically and systematically to
prevent you missing important settings.

the settings in current use as well as
the profiles already

USER GUIDE
Integration of self-calibrating Eizo displays
Calibration of Eizo displays like the CG318-4K, CG248-4K, CG277 and the CG247 can now be handled directly from
Phocus. This ensures that the display is setup to provide the best possible results for the viewing of Hasselblad images.
Once an eligible monitor is connected Phocus will show a dialog asking whether you want to handle calibration. If
you choose to do this you will be guided to an extra Eizo tab in the Preferences window where it’s possible to setup
calibration options and start the actual calibration. This preference tab will also let you toggle whether Phocus should
handle calibration or not.
It should be noted that it’s not currently possible for us to integrate with calibrations made by Eizo’s own ColorNavigator software. Therefore once you’ve made a calibration using Phocus launching ColorNavigator will switch the display back to the last calibration made by itself. When you switch back to running Phocus you will be prompted about
this change and will get the opportunity to restore the calibration made by Phocus or alternatively stop handling the
calibration from Phocus. In fact just running the ColorNavigator Agent will interfere so we recommend that you switch
off that option in the ColorNavigator preferences dialog.
The calibration target chosen by Phocus will of course be optimized to work with our Hasselblad RGB and Hasselblad
L* RGB working spaces but it should be noted that the resulting calibration will also work well even if using a somewhat smaller working space like Adobe RGB in Photoshop. However if you routinely view images in much smaller working spaces like sRGB you should make a special calibration for this purpose using the Eizo Color Navigator software.
Checking the “Schedule calibration every [ N ] days” option and filling out the desired calibration interval ensures that
you will be reminded about the need for display calibration.

Integrated Colour Calibration
In the Reproduction tool a new Colour Calibration popup
menu has been added. By default this will say Factory,
which corresponds to the same default colour handling
used by previous releases of Phocus. In this menu you
can select the Edit option in order to bring up the Colour
Calibrations dialog. Note that this dialog can also be
opened via the Window menu where it has the keyboard
short cut alt-cmd-C.
In order to add a new calibration make sure that a suitable image containing a colour reference chart is shown in the
viewer before opening the Colour Calibrations dialog.
Phocus
Table of Contents
www.hasselblad.com
95
USER GUIDE
If you have no existing custom calibrations the dialog will move directly on to the calibration interface. Otherwise use
the + button on the left (keyboard short cut is +). In the calibration interface you will see the selected image together
with an overlay reflecting the type of colour target selected.
1) Select target type
Out of the box we currently support ColorChecker, ColorChecker SG and ColorChecker DC targets. You can also use the +
button to add your own target references.
2) Align target location
While you can make a manual adjustment
of the overlay indicating target position,
normally you will just have to press the
Auto Locate button and your target will be
automatically located.
3) Calibrate
Press Calibrate to perform the actual
calibration. If this is successful you will get
basic ∆E statistics (CIEDE2000). Using the
Mark ∆E > slider you will get feedback in
the image showing patches that deviate by
more than the selected ∆E value.
4) Create the calibration
Once you’re happy with the calibration result the actual calibration is stored by clicking the Create button and you will return
to the base interface of the Colour Calibrations dialog showing you the list of existing
calibrations. Here you will also be able to
enter a text description of each calibration.
5) Using the calibration
To use the new custom colour calibration,
select it in the Colour calibration pop up
menu in the reproduction tool. The calibration itself will be embedded in the 3F file
along with the other adjustment settings so
there is no need to move the stored calibrations between host computers. If you view
an image containing a colour calibration
that is not already stored locally it will be
automatically copied to the computer.

USER GUIDE
Frequently Asked Questions
Q. I have downloaded Phocus but it won’t launch!
A. Check that both your computer and operating system are compatible with Phocus. You can find this information in
the Read Me file that follows each version of Phocus.
Q. Where can I get the latest version of Phocus?
A. You can download the latest version via our web page—www.hasselblad.com—under the Support > Manuals >
software-current section (Log-In required)
Q. How do I add my adjustments to a number of images?
A. Firstly, select the images you want to modify, then click the Modify icon in the Toolbar. A dialog opens allowing
you to select the desired settings that you have set in Tools. Click Modify to affirm.
Q. How do I get my exported images to open in my preferred image editing software?
A. You can choose an image editor in the Preferences menu (Toolbar > Preferences > Image Editor). Selected
images will then open automatically, when double-clicked in the Queue, in the chosen software.
Q. Why are there 3FR and 3F files? Why can’t captures be saved directly as 3F files?
A. 3FR files consist of native Hasselblad raw data that contains a huge amount of information, particularly when
compared to 35mm digital files. This is essential to produce the level of quality expected from Hasselblad
­products. It follows that a good deal of computing power is required to extract the maximum in the shortest possible time. To avoid diverting the camera’s activities to image processing, the combined advantages of ­Phocus
and a workstation are used instead. 3FR files are then processed into a complete and workable raw format that
can be saved, adjusted and exported, namely, 3F.
Q. What’s the difference between 3FR and 3F files? Should I keep them all?
A. A 3FR file is the native raw file created by Hasselblad cameras and remains in that format when stored on a CF
card. When loaded into Phocus, however, various corrections take place based on the hardware configuration
of the camera used. This processes the 3FR file into a 3F format file and creates a high quality preview (size
according to settings in Preferences). As this is an improved and specifically-tuned file, the original 3FR file can
be discarded. You may, of course, export 3F files to TIFF, PSD, JPEG etc., and just keep those but if you have the
space, retaining the 3F files could be good insurance to be able to re-process sometime in the future.
Q. Why does it take a while to see the Viewer image in Phocus? It seems much faster with other programmes.
A. In contrast to some other programmes, Phocus produces a full image in the Viewer, not a quick low-resolution
version. What you see is what you will get (if your monitor is capable of showing it). Hasselblad files are naturally
very large and demand a good deal of processing power so you will also see differences in speed on different
platforms/configurations. See the Read Me files for more information about performance.

USER GUIDE
Q. I want to save time. What are the disadvantages of exporting Hasselblad captures directly from the
browser?
A. Exporting 3FR or 3F files directly generates files that exclude the complete set of advantageous adjustments
such as white balance, lens corrections, moire, etc. However, this might be acceptable for a rushed set of
­‘contact sheets’ for a waiting client. As long as the 3FR/3F files are retained, you can always go back and export
a s­ election, this time with the full benefits that Phocus offers for optimum quality.
Q. Is there a way to access frequently used folders in an easy way in Phocus?
A. You can use the Favorites section in the File Browser. Drag selected folders to just beneath the Favorites
heading to make a collection.
Q. How do I get an overview of the keyboard shortcuts used in Phocus?
A. There is a keyboard shortcut list in this user manual. Print it out and keep it handy for quick reference or you can
tape it onto the side of your computer screen.
Q. Will 3F files generated by Phocus be backwards compatible with FlexColor?
A. No, you will not be able to open 3F files generated by Phocus in FlexColor. 3F camera files generated by FlexColor
will however be compatible with Phocus.
Q. My thumbnail image does not reflect changes made to the image in the Viewer.
A. The thumbnail image will not reflect changes until you click the Save Changes button (Toolbar > Adjustments
> Save Changes button). See Adjustment section in this user manual for further information.
Q. How do I get crops to show up on my thumbnail images?
A. Click on the icon in the upper right corner of the thumbnail browser to open the menu. Check the Show Crop box,
make the crop and choose Toolbar > Adjustments > Save Changes.
Q. I exported some 3FR files directly to TIFF but I forgot to turn off the tool settings I had for a previous
batch of files. Have those TIFF's now been adjusted according to the current Phocus settings?
A. No. Phocus uses the Standard setting for such direct export and so no individual tool settings have been applied.
