    David, are Hasselblad moving away from software developments and Phocus?

    Seems an odd match to give away a piece of software that does similar things to your own. I personally can't stand LR and hate the whole upgrade cycle forced upon us by Adobe. Personally, following my brief dealings with Phocus I found it a much happier environment to work in than my previous many months of LR2 drudgery while waiting for the release of Capture One 5 Pro and support for the 1DsIII.

    More importantly, LR does not support lens cast corrections. That's a pretty critical step with many medium format work flows. And Phocus has the lens correction algorithms, so are those replicated in LR?

    Just had the email about this.

    Who on earth came up with that advert?

    Lennon and McCartney are likened to Hasselblad and Lightroom..........?

    I would much prefer to have read horse muck and rose bed (Blad being the rose).

    I don't know why but I always assumed you could only open Hassy files with Phocus, not Lightroom?

    You have been able to open Hassy files in ACR for a few years now, so that will be lightroom and PS

    at least it will be more stable. i usually do my best work at the end of a shoot, and lately phocus has been corrupting a LOT when i get the energy level up

    Ditto to testshoot's comment. A tethered shoot on Phocus can't hang at times, very annoying. Do like the lens profiles in Phocus though, they are very good and keep me using it. Maybe this Lightroom deal is in preparation for a forthcoming Hasselblad consumer camera - Photokina maybe??

    Our lens profiles are also incorporated into Lightroom

    Re: Adobe / Hasselblad Press Release

    Seems like a very good move for Hasselblad. Lightroom is getting better and better, and it has a complete end to end solution for most images now. With the lens profiles and the addition of soft-proofing in lightroom 4, I find that I am only ever in photoshop for complex masking or spotting. . Let Adobe do the heavy lifting. Now, I know it will not happen in a million years, but it would be nice if they put those Phocus software techs back on updating FlexColor for all the thousands of labs, institutions and users stuck on decade old software! Better yet, work with adobe in creating a fully functional plugin to allow the scanners to work natively with lightroom. That would be a miracle...
