Reikan FoCal not compatible with Win 8
« on: January 13, 2013, 07:29:37 AM »
I had intentions to buy Reikan FoCal for my lens calibration, however, by reading descriptions in their website I found out that this software is not compatible with Windows 8 version. Here it is extract from Reikan's official website:

"At present FoCal is only available for computers running Windows XP (SP3) and Windows 7 operating systems.

Windows 8 is not officially supported but does work with Nikon cameras.  We will be testing with Windows 8 very shortly and assuming the manufacturer driver support is operational we hope to have a release formally approved for Windows 8 by Early 2013."


Previously i noticed in some tread (which somehow I could not find) that people were complaining that Reikan FoCal software is not working in 8 platform. It seems taht all of us will have to wait until release of new and compatible software version. I hope that this information will be useful to some of you.

I was using Focal 1.7 Pro production release with Windows 8 Pro x64  a couple of days ago. The focus peak feature was producing odd results with my 7D, which I've reported, and a did get a couple of glitches with my 5D3, which just needed me to restart whatever I was doing in order to fix. I don't think that's unique to Win 8 though, so while it may not be tested/certified it does at least run and will produce calibration results which look right to me.

I tested it on my Windows 8 as well.  Not officially tested yet with Windows 8 does not mean that it is not compatible.  Tons of software runs fine with windows 8 but is not officially supported yet.
