    Announcement: Phase One Releases Capture One Pro 7

    Phase One Releases Capture One Pro 7



    Phase One Releases Capture One Pro 7

    New Processing Engine
    Drives an Image Quality Revolution


    COPENHAGEN, October 25, 2012 — Phase One, the world’s leader in open-platform, high-end camera systems and solutions, today released Capture One Pro 7. Capture One Pro is the advanced digital imaging software for professional photographers who require superior image quality, maximum workflow efficiency and the flexibility to work the way they want to work.

    Capture One Pro 7 is a major release built on a new processing engine with new and advanced professional tools that dramatically boost out-of-the-box image quality, offering exquisite detail and color rendition. Powerful digital asset management functionality, derived from years of technical expertise built into the Media Pro catalog system, has been added to offer more options to select, search and organize image files. And the world’s most advanced tethering shooting solution now includes Live View support for selected DSLRs.

    “Phase One engineers have unique advantages in developing image processing software: their high-end digital hardware expertise, their enduring passion for perfection and their collaboration with some of the world’s best photographers,” said Linda K. Poulsen, Software Marketing Director, Phase One.

    “Image quality is always our prime directive,” said Niels V. Knudsen, Vice President of Innovation and Application Development, Phase One’s popular ‘Image Quality Professor.’ “We are proud to introduce what we believe is the world’s best professional imaging software, and we wish to thank photographers around the globe for inspiring us to meet their needs for high quality images with a natural look and feel.”

    A Revolution in Image Quality
    Advancements in the Capture One raw processing engine yield vastly more accurate rendition of details and colors. While medium format camera systems with Capture One Pro achieve the highest-level results, DSLR users will see stellar performance from their cameras too. A highly advanced noise reduction algorithm has been added that gives stunning performance at even high ISO levels. Precision adjustment tools offer greatly enhanced dynamic range for astonishing details in both shadows and highlights, reveal fine details and structure, reduce the effect of haze and give images a more three-dimensional look and add local contrast and saturation to images for extra punch. The new OpenCL implementation yields faster browsing and higher-speed image processing.

    Powerful Digital Asset Management
    Next to the familiar and proven sessions approach, Capture One Pro users can now organize their image files via comprehensive and flexible catalogs. Incorporating powerful digital asset management features found in Media Pro, they can work with multiple catalogs at the same time; share catalogs with other users; switch between different catalogs without relaunching; easily tag images for later search and retrieval; and browse and adjust images when the original images files are offline.

    Workflow Advances
    From capture to final output, Capture One Pro 7 has been optimized for efficiency. Capture One Pro’s support for instant tethered shooting is renowned for its ease (just plug in and shoot) with both medium format and high-end DSLR cameras. Now Live View is available for selected DSLRs aiding composition and critical focus.
    Capture One Pro 7 has a selection of default lens profiles that can be chosen to automatically correct any unwanted optical issues. Capture One Pro 7 speeds delivery of final image files to clients and colleagues in whatever format, size, or resolution they need.

    For a complete list of new and advanced features, please go to Image software

    Pricing and Availability
    Phase One Capture One Pro 7 is available now for Mac OS X and Windows online at Phase One store and from Phase One Partners. The price is 299 USD and 229 EUR. Owners of Capture One Pro 3/4/5/6 may upgrade for 99 USD and 69 EUR. Owners of Capture One Express may upgrade to Capture One Pro 7 for 249 USD and 199 EUR. For customers who have purchased Capture One Pro 6 since September 26, 2012, Phase One is offering a grace period, exempting them from the upgrade fee.

    re: Announcement: Phase One Releases Capture One Pro 7

    I've been using it for a few months now and it is a terrific upgrade! Detail gains are significant enough to add what appears like 30% to 50% more pixels to your existing camera. Moreover, noise is reduced to where you gain a good 3 stops of usable ISO to boot! Also, local adjustments now work MUCH faster than they did in 6, very easy to use now and finally to the point I have been using it a lot of the time where I used to send multiple versions of files out of 6 to blend in Photoshop. The only downside of this release is I am going to be spending a lot of time re-processing historical images!

    Seriously folks, in my humble opinion they priced it too low -- it is a HUGE upgrade over 6 IMHO. Note too there is a 60 day free trial period too, so no risk to try it -- an especially nice option for you dedicated Lightroom users!

    Re: Announcement: Phase One Releases Capture One Pro 7

    Like Jack I have been beta testing it as well and this final version is really good. Been processing all my Zion workshop images last week with it and a lot of great improvements and some new welcome features. I agree with Jack I was expecting a bigger cost on upgrade for it so get it now before they change there mind. For 99 dollars its a must have. I just shot images today at ISO 2500 and hopefully have them ready by the time you see this announcement. In short I am really impressed with this version so far and it's fast to boot.

    Re: Announcement: Phase One Releases Capture One Pro 7

    I am impressed with improvements to noise reduction, clarity, and local adjustments.
    Another new feature is that it has two modes of operation: A traditional (for Capture One) session oriented structure as well as a catalog structure which may be more to the liking of those who like to store an index of all of their images in one place.
    The metadata filters are an improvement too for sorting and grading images. There is no need to create smart folders for that purpose anymore.
    These are really welcome improvements.
    One of the best for use with the latest wide DR cameras is an improvement to the "shadows" slider. Much more usable range make it feasible to brighten the darks nicely and fit the DR of the camera to the output profile.

    I suspect the download link isn't broken, just being hammered by all the download requests. Give it a few days to settle out -- and trust me, it'll be well worth the wait!

    This is still free for use with digital backs, yes?

    Assuming so, any limitations on functionality?

    Re: Announcement: Phase One Releases Capture One Pro 7

    Jack - I'm wondering why you say there is such an increase in detail. I make very large prints, up to 20' wide. While your statement is welcome news, (haven't finished downloading C7 yet), I'm hoping this increase in detail is a positive thing for my purposes, or is it a situation where the increase in detail looks great in prints 30" and smaller but looks like artifact in larger prints?
    Thanks for your reply,

    PS: Just got official word that yes, the link is working, just being hammered, and if you stay connected you will eventually complete the download. Also, there are some added stall issues if you are using Chrome, so it is suggested you use Safari or FIrefox to download today.

    What image quality improvements will there be for the older backs like the P45?

    Thanks for your reply,

    Kevin,

    It is a real detail increase based on the new debayering algorithms in the v7 processing engine. The change is significant enough it will probably require you turn your old standard sharpening levels down for most images. You will notice a an increase across the board, but a significant increase specifically in red channel detail, which has historically been an issue for bayer sensors. If you properly process, you should get superior larger prints with it as compared to 6. This is a *really* significant update we're talking about!

    PS: Note that any previously processed C1-6 images will hold their old adjustments with the v6 engine algorithms under the base processing tab. To re-render you will need to change to the 7 processing engine under the base tab.

    The new processing engine helps ALL cameras it's been optimized for, and all older Phase backs have been so optimized. You will see a real detail gain and a significant reduction in noise, like 3 stops of ISO worth.

    Thanks, Jack. I hate to get rid of the older sensor since it handles long exposures so well.

    "Please feel free to shop in our e-store while you're waiting." Is that a new MFDB in your shopping cart?



    Eh, I'll wait to download/upgrade when the dust settles... Sounds like a great upgrade to C1Pro!

    You may be happier than you think! I suspect you'll see a detail gain equvalent to 30% more pixels over 6, and will now have a very usable ISO 800

    Jack,

    3 stops is ALOT. Have you tried this out on your IQ180, and do you know if this equally applies to Leaf backs?

    Thanks

    Best regards,
    Anders

    Re: Announcement: Phase One Releases Capture One Pro 7

    On the D800E I have a very usable ISO 2500. Problem is I can't show it since they are client images. Looking for just a 100 percent crop to show but anyway there is a very good improvement over version 6. Its a lot cleaner than I have seen since I had this cam in any program at this ISO.

    Re: Announcement: Phase One Releases Capture One Pro 7

    Okay found one as i was checking my focus on my Sigma 150. No people

    Full Image than a 3 various crops at 100 percent. My Luminance was 60 and color 70 and single pixel at 2. Im still playing with my settings as this is all new and i just have not had the time to work this as much as I want andI may run a real test later on. These really look like my 800 shots in C1 version 6. I cant directly compare now since I removed 6 over a week ago.

    Full shot

    Crop

    Re: Announcement: Phase One Releases Capture One Pro 7

    To me these are very clean at ISO 2500 and I actually shot most of the job at ISO 2500 as the light was just crap with fluorescent lighting which is UGLY.

    Is it 3 stops better well have not gone there myself but certainly i would bet REAL money on 2 stops.

    Just install C17. One stupid question, How do you do (apply to be exact) LCC on this new version? There is still no batch process? Many thanks!

    It's there I'm not on computer right now but the LCC are implemented differently in version 7 and you can apply in batch. Ill let someone that has been using this feature to explain it better. But I have seen it in action and its a nice setup. Also look for the LCC tool under tools

    Re: Announcement: Phase One Releases Capture One Pro 7

    Since I have so much time while I am waiting for the download I was wondering if any other macbook pro users no that Apple is no longer making the 17" macbook pro?
    I was surfing around the apple store and was curious as to the price of a new one and well they just are not there....Called Apple and they said they stopped making them!
    That sucks.....Hope mine keeps going for a while even though it's been really slow lately

    I may regret posting this since I haven't finished downloading it yet, but try the EU/DE link. I am getting 460kb/sec for about a twelve minute download.

    edit:

    Download went quickly at a steady 460-470 kb/sec.

    I started it up in catalog mode, how do I get back to sessions mode?

    Re: Announcement: Phase One Releases Capture One Pro 7

    I see the implementation of LCC batch processing and applying a great time saver.
    I was wondering what is the future of Media Pro now that C1 7 got catalogues and offline management?
    I have not used Media Pro due t othe bad wrap it got. Is this an attempt to merge these programs?

    Does anyone know what the file size limitation of C17 is by chance?

    I think it's safe to say it is

    Re: Announcement: Phase One Releases Capture One Pro 7

    Well downloaded and running, I have been 99% using LR4 and wanted to give this a go again. My Mac is running slow as hell and not sure whats going on but anyway here is my first edited pic from Capture One Pro 7. Not sure if it's me but the shadow recovery is not as defined as LR4 and seems to effect the whole image more but the images have a nice "POP" to them....Have to keep playing



    Brought file into photoshop and added tonal contrast and dropped opacity to 35% and then ran Nik Define....that's it

    C1 v7: Structure

    I agree with the comment about shadow detail, but the highlight recovery seems to work much like LR4, with much better limitations to just the highlight areas.
    The "structure" slider has a very nice effect on detail of small objects without giving the halos or crunchy look of over sharpening. Very impressive. Does anyone know how this works? Probably a question for Doug Peterson, or the developers if they are listening.

    Re: Announcement: Phase One Releases Capture One Pro 7

    Sharpening, structure, and clarity are all types of "sharpening via localized contrast" (like a USM)

    Sharpening works at a very small radius
    Structure works at a medium radius
    Clarity works at a high radius

    Structure and clarity spread their effect over more pixels so while they can produce halos they only do so at fairly high settings.

    The new Bayer algorithm also holds up much better to additional sharpening in general (less digital interpolation artifacts an therefore less artifacts that get sharpened).

    Re: Announcement: Phase One Releases Capture One Pro 7

    Hi,

    I downloaded the trial version, which was quick, but can't get it to launch. Each time I get this message:
    "Switching from Capture One Express to Capture One Pro requires the application to be relaunched"
    I have tried to locate the capture one express on my mac but it is nowhere to be found...
    When I try to relaunch it just quits.
    Any advice help would be really appreciated.
    Thanks

    Re: Announcement: Phase One Releases Capture One Pro 7

    Just a quick reply for now...as haven't had a chance to read over all the remarks which I want to do...but first, I used the European download site last night and had no issues...impossible to download from the US. Also I'm seeing huge improvement in my Nikon D800e files. Haven't worked with my Phase one back files yet...Big improvement in detail and the HDR controls are hugely better!! More later...Eleanor

    Very possible -- I know that all Phase and Leaf backs and certain legacy Canon and Nikon bodies were optimized for this release, but newer Nikon and Canon were still forthcoming. If you are not seeing a significant improvement, then my guess is you are not yet optimized.

    Let's hope.

    There also no DSLR Sony/minolta lenses in the lens correction box, some wideangles would be very nice ;-)

    Shadows/Highlights are much improved.

    But I think it is not fast and a memory hog.

    Close the application.

    Rename the application itself. Doesn't matter what the new name is as long as it's different. For instance "Capture One 7" or "Capture One For the Love of Pete Start Working".

    Open the application. You may get this message one more time but after relaunching (once) it should go away. It may also work right away.

    Please report back here if this works for you. If not, I suggest contacting your dealer's support department or starting a support case on Phaseone.com.

    The catalog in COne7 will not show the embedded thumbnails in RAW files from unsupported cameras like the Fuji Xpro1 which I use next to my M9's and there is no way I know to send the RAW files to a program which can process them and get the tif back into the C1 catalog.
    Media Pro does show the embedded thumbnails in the XPRO1 RAW files and sending them to any other program for processing and back as tif or whatever is fast and elegant.
    I just purchased Media PRO and find it better than when I first tried it when it came out.
