And that’s not all. Version 11.1 also offers a new Resource Hub for online tutorials, tips, ideas and webinars, an improved workflow for Styles (preset image ‘looks’) and a complimentary ‘Spring’ styles pack to go with it. Import speeds have been improved and the Capture Pilot 2.0 tethered shooting app (which works on Apple iPads) now comes with additional control for Sony cameras.
Capture One Pro comes from Danish company Phase One, which specialises in high-end medium-format cameras. Capture One Pro is designed to work with a wide number of digital cameras, however, and is available separately.
It’s an all-in one image cataloguing, editing and raw processing program that’s a direct rival to Adobe Lightroom and offers a very similar set of features. Capture One Pro is more expensive than Lightroom, but offers (arguably) higher quality RAW conversions, a more powerful layers-based editing setup and professionally-orientated editing controls.
Capture One Pro 11.1 adds support for RAW files for a number of significant new cameras, including the Sony A7 Mk III, Fujifilm X-H1, Leica CL, Leica TL2, Leica V-Lux Typ 114, Leica X-U, Olympus E-M10 Mk III, Olympus E-PL9, Panasonic G9 and Panasonic GH5S. Several of these are key new cameras for professional and semi-pro cameras, so for them the update will be very welcome.
Capture One Pro also applies automatic lens corrects for images shot with lenses in its database. Capture One Pro 11.1 adds corrections for the following lenses, including a several Tamron optics: Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS II USM, Leica Elmarit M 90mm f2.8, Leica Summicron M 90mm f2, Sony E 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 OSS, Sony FE 24-105mm F4 G OSS, Tamron 16-300mm F/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD MACRO, Tamron 28-300mm F/3.5-6.3 Di VC PZD, Tamron 28-300mm F/3.5-6.3 Di VC PZD, Tamron SP 35mm F/1.8 Di VC USD, Tamron SP 70-200mm F/2.8 Di VC USD G2 andTamron SP 90mm F/2.8 Di MACRO 1:1 VC USD.
Also interesting is a new Normalization option that can be used to apply a colour reference point across a series of images to achieve a consistent look.
Capture One Pro costs 279 euros/$299 USD as a full purchase, from 119 euros/$119 USD as an upgrade from an earlier version, or is a free update for Capture One Pro 11 users.
