Capture One 5 vs Lightroom 2/3
May 12, 2010

I am using Capture One version 5 (the trial lety you chose at startup whether you want the Standard or the Pro version). I noticed that the controls regarding "recovery" (in LR) and High Dynamic Range (in Capture One) work very differently: Capture One seems to "pull" more from shadows and highlights than LR, without the nasty dark shado artifacts. have played with a number of shots, then decided that the controls in LR are quite coarse versus the seemingly more defined controls on Capture. Am I imagining things or is there an entirely different algorithm at work in Capture One?

And: Yes, I have used Capture NX as well, but find the software mildly on the bizzarre end. The control points seem to be a nice idea, but curves in Capture One or he selective brush tools in LR are superior I find.
Any thoughts?
