Tamron released its Lens Utility app for Windows and Mac desktops back in October 2021. It’s a great tool that works like similar software from other manufacturers, letting you upload firmware, configure switches and doohickies on lenses or tweak your focus limits, preset distances and various other features. Well, not everybody wants to drag a desktop or even a laptop around with them everywhere. Now, you don’t have to.
The Lens Utility Mobile app, teased back in August, has now officially been announced. So far, naturally, it’s only available for Android devices, as the lenses that support this feature all have USB-C ports. Android smartphones let you hook up pretty much anything you want to them, whereas iOS devices don’t, even if you do have a USB-C to Lightning cable.
