Tamron Lens Utility Mobile


Transcontinenta, Tamron distributor for UK and Ireland, has announced the development of Tamron Lens Utility Mobile, a dedicated application for smartphones and tablets running with Android OS that provides convenient use in the field and expands the possibilities of video and still photography. The application is the mobile version of the Tamron Lens Utility dedicated computer software that has earned praise from many Tamron lens users since its release in October 2021 and was developed in-house by Tamron.


Summary of Tamron Lens Utility Mobile

October 2021 marked the release of Tamron Lens Utility, the dedicated computer software that enables the customization of various functions of selected Tamron lenses to match the video and still photography style of the lens user. Since then, Tamron has received feedback regarding improved convenience from customers wishing to make lens function customizations when shooting in the field. As a result, they have developed Tamron Lens Utility Mobile for Android OS. Using the Tamron Connection Cable (USB type-C), an Android smart device can be connected to a lens to easily configure lens customizations without requiring a computer.

A new function that enables lens operations to be controlled from a smartphone has also been added. For example, the A-B Focus function that smoothly shifts the focus from one preselected subject to another can be set up without touching the lens. Expansion of functions in the future is possible to make users even more comfortable to try out video production.

Tamron lens firmware updates are not supported with the Mobile version. Performing firmware updates requires the Tamron Utility for the computer. This new Tamron application is designed for Android OS. Please note that iOS is not supported at this time.

Initially the following Tamron lenses will be compatible with the new Tamron Lens Utility Mobile: 28-75mm F/2.8 Di III VXD G2 (Model A063) and 35-150mm F/2-2.8 Di III VXD (Model A058).
