FoCal Snapshots Features

Capture Your Camera Settings with Ease

With Snapshots, you can easily capture your camera’s settings – basic settings such as ISO, aperture, shutter speed, but also far more in depth details such as custom white balance configurations, autofocus tracking priorities and image aberration correction options.

Hundreds of camera settings are automatically captured in one tap

The app automatically detects your camera’s model, ensuring that it captures all the relevant settings and interprets them in the right way for a seamless experience.

The app is free to download and lets you verify capture of Snapshots from your camera, giving you the opportunity to check camera connection adapters and general functionality with some demo.

    If I have a saved settings file from a Nikon Z6 (NCSET002.BIN) stored on my computer, can I load it into FoCal Snapshots directly from my computer, or does Snapshots require a connection to the camera?

    I am asking because I no longer have the Z6, but was hoping to use your Snapshots app to see the settings I had used on it.

    • The Nikon .BIN files are in a completely undocumented proprietary binary format, and it’s not something that’s used in FoCal. The Snapshots tool captures setting information over USB rather than using the BIN files. If you know someone with a Z6 and FoCal, you could get them to load your .BIN file into their camera and then capture a Snapshot and send it over to you, then you’ll be able to see the settings. (Note that Snapshots doesn’t capture quite as many settings as are present in the .BIN file as not all are available from the camera over USB).
