I was able to download the capture one free version. Now I just need to try to learn how to use it. Thank you!!


using C1 myself (however the paid version) it's not about a "download of a free version". The difference between versions -if nothing fundamental had changed in the meantime- is in the installation process where it separates among a full featured 30-day trial version, the paid version (insertion of the licence key) and the brand specific express version with a limited set of features.

If I'm not mistaken, I think it was anounced that C1 would end the release of brand specific versions.

I ended up interpreting that as the cheaper full featured paid versions that handled only Sony or Fuji were ending and the limited feature freebie Express versions would continue.

Not sure though about the time frame, whether it applies already or when and what's about free (Express) versions. Test/trial version is likely to continue. Best to visit their homepage to find out details.

Not long after the announcement I downloaded and installed the latest freebie version.

Visiting their page today the link to Express only leads to the Fuji version of the freebie. To find the Sony version I needed to Google and got https://www.captureone.com/en/capture-one-express/sony

I deactivated my licence for Computer 1 and downloaded afresh to Computer 2 and installed and activated it OK using the free licence that I have had for some time.

The gotcha of course is maybe that I am getting historical support and newcomers after whatever date may not be able to get a free licence???

Anyway, it installed for me and somehow I have C1-21 and C1-22 installed OK, here's the C1-22 Express that I just now installed....

On this page https://support.captureone.com/hc/en-us/articles/360002465337-Capture-One-product-variants I find....

That leads to a page where I see... https://support.captureone.com/hc/en-us/articles/4416243437969 that there seems to be no mention of the Express versions for Sony and Fuji. It still works for me but maybe the freebies run out after C1-22 ?
