Phase One has just unveiled a major update to Capture One Pro, with a raft of new features for image editing and management — most notably a new processing engine.
Capture One Pro 7’s new engine is perhaps the biggest addition to version 7. Phase One is claiming it’ll make a significant difference to your images, providing them with better color and clarity, tailor made camera profiles, boosted noise reduction, and enhanced dynamic range. It’ll also allow you to convert raw images faster than ever before.
Phase One has also overhauled the asset management side of the equation, and you can now organize your files into “catalogs”. You can work with multiple of these catalogs at the same time, switching between them without relaunching, and sharing them between users.
The tethering system has also received an upgrade, allowing for some DSLRs to provide live view through the application. Pro 7 will also feature enhanced automatic lens correction, clarity, sharpening, and other editing tools. For a closer look at all of these features, you can check out Phase One’s site.
New users will be able to get the software for $299, and uses of Capture One Pro versions 3-6 can pick up the new edition for an upgrade price of $99 — but if you picked up Capture One Pro 6 since September 26, you get it for free. Users of Capture One Express get a slight discount, and will pay $249.
