    Hope, there will be still a (free) DB-version.

    Same here, localized highlights/shadows recovery, and levels & curves would be great too.

    Phase One will always provide the functionality of "Pro" for free to users of Team Phase One backs for free in a "DB" mode. This does not change from one version to the next.

    Subscription plan? If they ever convert to subscription only, I will never buy another PhaseOne product. After the crap Adobe pulled, I'm shocked anyone thought this would be a good idea.

    I've done some quick testing and I cannot see any improvements in tiling supression or any other aspects in LCC algorithm, as far as I can see the results are equivalent to C1 7.

    (Almost) all software will eventually be subscription-based. It's the future, whether you like it or not.

    Very mature software like Adobe's products will just get bloated if you add new features and sell on feature upgrades. Software still needs to be maintained, supporting new cameras, new operating systems etc and that kind of boring stuff, so you need to get money in even if you won't add much totally new features. Subscription is then an business model that can work.

    C1 probably has a few years they can sell on feature upgrades, but it is too becoming a mature product.

    Re: Capture One 8.

    As a beta tester for C1 vr 8, the improvements IMO are impressive. The ability to do a WB in local adjustment layer was a great addition. However you have to watch out as this over rides the WB on the master file. A bit different than how LR handles this. But overall improvements seem good.

    Sad to see that it appears no LCC improvements for both titling and other issues.

    Not sure if the "strategic" alliance means a non Alpa user can no longer expect to see improvements as each platform tends to be pretty unique.

    I did see the note on the subscription, which IMO is a bit different than CC. CC's upgrade cost has always been around 220.00 US, if you are non government or education discounted. So that breaks out to around 10.00 a month for CC and LR.

    C1 upgrade cost for C1 8 is the same 99.00. So not sure how they will work that forward, as starting everyone over at 299.00 a year would be a bit of a disappointment.

    I did just go through the Phase One store to upgrade one of my C1 licenses, and their process worked fine. No issues, still 99.00 per license to upgrade, and for me, this time the 99.00 is worth it.

    Re: Capture One 8.

    noticed they are offering "focus mark" in live view. I am hoping this means you could pick a couple of points in the image to zoom in on at the same time and thus assist focus when using tilt or swing?

    Re: Capture One 8.

    Ohhhh i love C1 ....it is the best professional software in the market (not perfect,an compared with the competition). It is incredible how in digital days a software makes you choose between one camera system or another .
    I will wait for testing it ,at least untill it gets "stable" , phaseone likes us to be their guinea pig

    And... there are several million of us, just in North America, who can not get cable or DSL broadband and have to rely on iffy and expensive 3G cell data or throttled and unreliable satellite for Internet access.

    Thanks, Paul. Your list is very helpful.

    "New clarity method called Natural"... and we still have Classic, Neutral and Punch... and Structure?

    All the others are still there. Never like Punch as I always felt it was OTT so this Natural option is a welcome addition.

    Phase One had very very clearly told me that there is absolutely positively not a plan to switch to subscription only.

    Subscription is an *additional* option, and is not expected to be the majority of users. It will be useful for some users including multi-user corporate and institutional clients where knowing your exact expenses into the future is preferable to having semi-randomly spaced upgrade costs.

    If you prefer to buy the software as a perpetual license you still can, and this will not change.

    Re: Capture One 8.

    Doug please answer me this. c18 pro has the same things that c1 express has for Sony cams. I need to know this as that is what I am shooting these days. I did beta test 8 but I'm sure most profiles and such where added last to the list before the master was out.

    Thanks, I noted that. I have held off on updating to 10.9 from 10.8. Are there any specific issues that people have experienced with LR, C1 Pro, Photoshop CC 2014, Epson Large Format printers, etc. in moving to 10.9?

    Re: Capture One 8.

    One thing that I just discovered, once you open your catalog in C1 8, you can't go back to C1 7. It performs a conversion the first time that you open it.

    Now I'm praying for stability.
    Cheers,

    I do think this is one of the most stable major releases to date. I am particularly impressed by stability tethered and with LV.

    I appreciate this, Doug. PhaseOne does seem to be aware of the uproar that Adobe's actions caused. One has to wonder why they assured you up front that there is no plan to go subscription-only, but didn't see the need to assure everyone else before their panties got all twisted in a knot.
    Anyways, good to hear, and thanks.

    The [Sony] versions are the same as the non [Sony] versions except that they only work with Sony cameras*.

    *It also works with Team Phase One files since there will never be any version of C1 which does not work with Team Phase One files).

    Most of my use has been on my MBP 10.9.4

    I also have it on my Win 8.1 machine, and not seen any issues, but can't say I have used it much on that platform.
