All my professional carrer I've not used anything other than Capture One for my image editing and with every new version came a feature or jump in output quality that made the upgrade a welcome and exciting addition. I looked over what was new in version 9 but was underwhelmed as the the new features and rather than just clicking to upgrade I thought I'd trial the software and give it the benefit of some heavy use first.
I've just finished my 30 day trail and I'm totally sure there is no perceivable difference in the output quality of the files in comparison to version 8. The only nice thing I could see was the contrast slider works slightly better and the straight line mask tool is handy in 9. Version 8 supports all my current cameras so I think I'm going to sit tight on my current version.
Anyone else care to share their thoughts on version 9 and point out something I'm missing as it feels like a point update to 8 rather than the usual (got to have) full version upgrade?
