Big Picture

Phase One has released Capture One 4, a new generation of the company’s raw workflow software and successor to Capture One LE.

The software features a newly designed user interface which offers high fidelity color and detail reproduction. The software also allows users to view and work with up to 12 images simultaneously at full resolution, make multiple variants of a single raw image with virtually no disk and performance overhead, manage and transfer license codes, recover details in highlights and shadows with high dynamic range control, and import and export images in DNG format. Capture One 4 also features a new shortcut architecture which allows for faster image importing, adjusting, and processing.

Capture One 4 supports a range of medium-format digital backs and DSLR cameras from PhaseOne, Canon, Epson, Fuji, Konica Minolta, Leica, Nikon, Olympus, Pentax, and Sony.

Price: $129; free for existing Capture One users.
