Group Capture

Designed for shooting tethered, Spectra’s Group Capture feature can save you countless hours of manual processing!

Please note: Because we are continually updating our library of training videos as new versions of our software are released, this video will likely show an older or newer version of StudioPlus Spectra/myStratus than you have installed. Don't worry! The video will still give you a great overview of this feature.
