Re: Comparision Light Room - Capture one

A couple of points:

It seems evident that the settings aren't really identical (even if set the same) from the fact that fringing is corrected in the C1 version and isn't in the LR version.  This could make a big difference.

Secondly have you tried different camera profiles in LR or stayed with the Adobe Standard one?  In my experience these can produce more variation than between your two samples, and you may find one of them more to your liking.

I think the previous poster's advice to set to optimum settings in both and then compare is sound - after all what is the point of only using the defaults - these are the respective manufacturers views and Adobe may well be more conservative than C1.

When I last compared these two I found C1 superficially more appealing but on very large magnification it seemed to be inventing non-existent detail.  This made things like foliage look good but when it started sprinkling details into gaps in a wall which should have shown plain sky (and did in LR) then I was not so impressed!
