    I had all the settings right, I was using sRBG, changed to Pro Photo, still no joy.

    Re: User Report: 24/1.4 ASPH: Disappointing.

    According to the help file the colour space for the pic and histo is based on the output colour space, no way to set a colour space apart from the output box. Am I missing something?

    Ben,

    After you've done as Guy suggested above, you should go to View>Proof Profile and make sure it's set to "Current Recipe" or your default output color space. I suspect this is where your issue is.

    Darn, I was just going to say that ...

    here's a question ...

    My current version of C1 is 4.3.1 XXXXXX ... according to my history I have 2 upgrades left.

    How the heck do I upgrade? Can I upgrade to 4.8?

    I can't figure it out off their website.

    For some odd reason C1 just clicked for me and I'm off and running. Still like LR for work flow, but for these Leica M8 RAW files there is no comparison.

    Next, I'm going to try some A900 files. C1 may move that camera up a useable ISO setting compared to ACR.

    Thanks all, especially Jaap, Guy and Jack for the shove upward.

    How the heck did you end up with a 4.3?? LOL I imagine you mistyped that

    If you have a C1 3 or C1 4 license key then you can install and activate any version of Capture One 4. You don't so much "upgrade" as simply install the desired version. For best results I suggest you fully uninstall any versions you might have previously used prior to downloading and installing 4.8.

    It seems likely that there will be one or more updates to Capture One 4. The upgrade price from Capture One 4 to Capture One 5 was set last year at $99 so we already know what's in store in that regard. Until then anyone who has purchase Capture One since early 2004 can continue to use the latest version at no additional cost.

    We (Capture Integration) do these once every two months or so and they are reasonably popular. I've been surprised more people don't sign up, but feedback from past participants has been strong.

    True. Though as I mentioned it's never a bad idea to do a full uninstall of the previous versions. My best guess is that around 5% of users experience issues when they simply install over the previous version rather than fully uninstalling it.

    Guy, Jack
    I've got 4.8 - is it worth the upgrade to the pro version?
    Specifically, does the pro version have things which make the workflow easier?

    Just this guy you know

    a complete uninstall is not so easy using a Macintosh -- any suggestions to keep it clean?

    Oops! the version is 4.1.3

    Okay, got the coffee.

    Opened C1.

    Went to menu C1.

    NO "Check For Updates" in any drop down menu. Nada.

    Re: User Report: 24/1.4 ASPH: Disappointing.

    Sorry Marc, they moved the update link in the later versions! It just takes you to the link Guy posted above...

    Jono, IIRC, the big differences are multiple camera raw file support, and full featured color editor -- which is HUGELY powerful. It allows you to tweak individual colors, basically allowing you to edit a set profile or conversion on the fly. You can also add custom menus. Somewhere on the site is a full comparison chart.

    Re: User Report: 24/1.4 ASPH: Disappointing.

    Pro has everything that non-pro has as well as:

    Clarity
    Moire Reduction
    Lens Correction
    Tethering
    Color Editor
    Skin Tone Tool
    Overlay
    Process Recipes
    Sessions
    Second Monitor Support
    Menu Customization

    I would be remiss if I didn't mention that Capture Integration can sell you a C1 Pro license or upgrade over the phone (877-217-9870). No box/CD is needed since you always want to download the latest version from the website anyway.

    Every time you buy C1 Pro from a dealer rather than the online store a Head of Technical Services gets his wings.

    Doug and Jono:

    I don't know if Doug can sell you this, but the M8 Capture One License can be upgraded to the Pro version at a discount.

    Re: User Report: 24/1.4 ASPH: Disappointing.

    Right everyone - thank you.
    Doug - I'd buy it off you in a prayer . . . (I like wings too) . . unfortunately I'm over the other side of the pond!

    Jack and Guy - thanks for the information. I'm still considering whether I want to go that way (I've just processed another batch of M8 / A900 files in Aperture, and it does to a good job). (Jack - doesn't the ordinary version have multi camera RAW support - mine certainly seems to).

    Robert - thank you for that, it's actually the cause of the temptation as it's really affordable this side of the pond 199 I think.

    I'm not sure that I'd need the colour editor, or the skin tone tool, but the Clarity, Moire Reduction and Lens correction together with multi monitor support is certainly tempting.

    Just this guy you know

    Good prayer pun.

    If you have a local dealer with whom you have a relationship then buy from them! Otherwise we have no problem selling software internationally. Actually it's cakework since there's no tangible asset; you email/phone us a CC# and we email/phone you a license number. The physical boxes are useless since the manual is a PDF and the CD is always out of date by the time it is stamped. Of course the new box is pretty neat (it has one of our customer's images on the cover, so I'm a bit biased).

    And yes we can do Leica upgrades, 4 to 4 pro upgrades, or whatever you need. Though I think I only get one wing for upgrades.

    We run them every two months or so; you'd be welcome at the next one. Or you can attend GetDPI's next workshop in June where I'll be doing all the C1 instruction you can handle as well as amusing everyone with my attempts to pick up the local waitresses.

    We've looked into recording and distributing instructional material. Thus far we have not, if only because all of our instruction is so structured on small-group Q&A and answering individuals' questions.

    I still need folks for the June workshop and Doug is planning on attending. We could actually make it a C1 day in there if needed and shoot 3 days. I only have 2 people and it is on the verge of being cancelled. We need warm bodies to teach. LOL

    Wish I could attend June 17 but I will be out of the country. You guys should consider such a instructional video. That was the reason I chose Lightroom, having easy access to tutorial information really helps.

    Another vote for C1. When I first got my M8, I could not be bothered to learn C1 v3.7.7, so carried on using ACR and was getting horrible colour fringing, particularly on things like fountains etc. Someone on LC forum suggested I change to C1 and I was amazed at the disappearance of colour fringes. I have found that C1 just gets better and better although there continue to be stability problems on Macs and upgrades can screw everything up, meaning you have to do a remove all files, app support and plist files before reinstalling. However, I firmly believe it is best used solely as a RAW converter and the other bits are best left alone. I use iPhoto plus iPhoto library manager as my image library and PS CS4 for everything else and printing. I could never get along with LR and although I think Aperture is a great program, I don't think the end results on M8 files are as good as C1 + PS.

    At around the end of this year, I should be able to afford either a 24 Lux or a new Nocti but definitely not both. I can't make up my mind which to go for. I suppose the best thing is to try and arrange loaners and see which "rings my bell loudest". I suppose I could afford a 24 Lux plus CV 50/1.1 but my personal experience on CV lenses has been so poor, I am wary of trying for a 4th time -I thought it might be 3rd time lucky but no.
