Getting Capture One to recognize Sony A7 IV ARW files

Hi,

I don't know if it's because I'm on v20 (I guess not) but C1 wouldn't import my ARW files from my brand new Sony A7 IV.

So using a tip I learned in this very forum (RX10 III/RX10 IV at the time. Can't remember who posted it but thank you sir!), I downloaded an EXIF editor (EXIT Pilot) and changed the "Model" field to "ILCE-7M3" and Capture One now recognizes the ARW file. I did some basic edits and it looks fine.

So again, thanks to the person who gave me this trick and I hope it can be useful to some others until our friends at Phase One update the software.

Please also feel free to post any problem/limitation of this method if there are any.

J.

P.S: please also feel free to post any tip on getting v22 at a bargain price, I used to pay <100€ for upgrade of the Sony version but it seems the good days are over
