December 19, 2007: The latest version of Phase One’s raw workflow software, Capture One, has passed from beta version to full product status and is now available for purchase.
Built on a new architecture, the successor to Phase One’s entry-level Capture One LE offers professional and enthusiast photographers a RAW workflow solution for superior image quality. A re-designed user interface offers maximum space for the images and focuses on the pictures, rather than the sliders and controls. A darker background permits easier image viewing and enhancements. As with previous generations of Capture One, a guided workflow is available to assist the photographer in the image enhancement process. Users can view and work with up to 12 images simultaneously at full resolution and create Multiple Variants of a single RAW image with virtually no disk and performance overhead. The latest version also provides facilities for managing and transferring license codes, so Capture One 4 can be used on one computer one day and on another computer the next. Other features record tools for recovering details in highlights and shadows with high dynamic range control; importing and exporting images in DNG format, for more options to share and archive and powerful new shortcut architecture for faster image import, adjustment and processing.
Existing Capture One customers can upgrade to Capture One 4 at no extra cost. Designed for Windows XP (SP2)/Vista and Mac OS X 10.4.11 and 10.5, Capture One 4 is available now via download at http://www.phaseone.com/4 for 129 USD and 99 EUR through Phase One’s e-Shop.
