Capture One 4->5 (non pro): Worth it?
Now that C1 v. 5 has been out for a while, could anyone summarize the benefits to paying the $100 upgrade for the non-Pro version?
I have an M8, have been reasonably happy with C1 4.8.1.
I read here that the Pro version has some better image processing and noise handling for ISO 640-1250. Is this true for the standard version as well?
I have a 7 year old computer running XP, maxed out at 1 gig RAM. I will probably upgrade to a new one with Windows 7 sometime next year. Is v. 5 slower than 4--enough that I should perhaps wait until the new computer?
Every so often I think about getting the Pro version, but the only thing I've really missed in v.4 is the ability to store and recall different process recipies.
Re: Capture One 4->5 (non pro): Worth it?
Capture One and Capture One PRO have the same processing engine so the improvements in that respect applies to both versions.
If you do the same work in 4 and 5 I don't think you should see any serious speed setbacks - depending on what you could see speed improvements.
You can download a 30 day free trial of 5.
