Jer81: "For $199, users can purchase lifetime licenses for Capture One 21 for Fujifilm, Sony or Nikon. " Why can't Canon, Olympus, Pentax and Panasonic user buy it for $199?
Will wait for DXO Photolab 5 than. Let's wait and see what they have to offer.

@Jer81 Capture One has commercial/financial arrangements with Sony and Fuji (not sure about Nikon, as that has never been discussed) to provide camera specific versions for their cameras.

If you want a lower cost/free version for Canon, Olympus, Pentax or Panasonic, then you need to ask those camera manufacturers to broker a deal with C1.

sobrien: Let's just hope that they can fix the laggy performance that was introduced with the latest dot update. Catalogue updated and old version not backed up so can't work with old version. Frustrating but a lesson learned.

@sobrien

If your catalogue wasn't backed up, I would raise this with C1 as a bug. The old catalogue should be automatically backed up to allow for roll back.

Krummj: Can you set "export to same folder as original" like you can in Lightroom? I have never been able to find that option.

@Krummj Can you set "export to same folder as original" like you can in Lightroom? I have never been able to find that option.

It's always been there as a "with image" default export location option. The wording in this update seems to have been changed to say "same folder as original"

icexe: I grew up using Bridge-ACR-PS workflow and still find it to be a lot faster than using LR. There's a bunch of features in LR that I don't ever use and the interface is slow and cumbersome because it's trying to do so many different things. and I hate the way LR handles plug-ins..

@EDWARD ARTISTE

I think you will struggle to get C1 to do exactly what you want as they are very pedantic about "best" practice and although I know people do it (like yourself), I have only ever read that deleting files directly on the card is bad practice, hence the fast raw viewer approach of tagging files, and then only moving the tagged files off the HD.

I obviously didn't explain using C1 as a browser properly as you don't need to ingest it into a browser session to look at the files. That's point of creating a "viewer" session. Create a new session from inside C1 and call something like "C1_Browser" then scroll down in the library tab until you get to the system folder tree and then use C1 as you would use Bridge. Nothing is imported into C1 doing it this way.

However, I don't think this will help you, as C1 still needs to create a sidecar file to hold the previews etc in the same folder as the raw file, and I doubt it will write to the card.

@EDWARD ARTISTE

You should be able to do what you want by using a session as a viewer/browser, and enlarge previews as you need and then drag the files onto the HD. I've always understood you shouldn't delete files on the card. Though some ingestion tools e.g. Fast Raw Viewer, allow you to tag files on the card and then only import the tagged files.

I have for pretty well all time used PhotoMechanic to import all files off the card onto the HD, its faster and more powerful than LR or C1 for this, and then cull and caption within PM, before importing into a LR/C1 catalogue. Though I now use C1 sessions.

C1 does take a bit of learning !

@EDWARD ARTISTE

You don't need to use C1 like this, you can use it as a browser without importing anything. C1 offers two types of catalogues (referenced and manual), and two types of sessions (one where selected files are imported into session folders and another where the session is used as a browser where nothing is imported)

wjan: The usual blah-blah-blah with very little factual information. Boring!
Still, they mention "customer request" many times in the text and I wonder how I could submit my request as a customer. There is no obvious way to do it. I wrote a long substantial message in one of Nikon's surveys once but never got any confirmation back.

A couple of times I have logged onto my Nikon account where you register new equipment and emailed requests/complaints which have been acknowledged by a Nikon member of staff to say they have been passed on to the appropriate person.

noirdesir: I am really curious about what process is used to decide for which lenses support gets added, given that this update adds a lens released in 1994 (Nikon AF 24 mm f/2.8 D).

Beyond the most obvious support for professional level and enthusiast level camera and lenses, It has traditionally been based on the number of user requests, which are used to prioritise support. At one time all the Phase One technical staff were keen photographers, (not sure if that is still the case) so maybe a member of staff owns this lens :-)

In reply to:

Duncan M: "Capture One emphasizes in its press release (embedded below) the new support for the Fujfilm X-T4, saying it is the first company to offer ‘official support’ for Fujifilm’s newest APS-C camera system."

No wonder they emphasize this knowing that Fujifilm took a large stake in Phase One. They basically bought it as at first CO1/phase one refused support for the GFX as it was competing to Phase One medium format offering.

Then came the BIG bag with the golden coins from Fujifilm (via Axcel investment group) and Phase One flipped its opinion. So yes the relations with Fujifilm and CO1 are deep these days.

Can you explain where the info on Fuji taking a stake in Phase One comes from. The statement from Axcel (a Danish investment company) when they bought out the British interest in Phase One, said how pleased they were that Phase One was now 100% Danish owned again,

dgumshu: Wow. Where would we be without photoshop, etc. :-)

dgumshu
Yeah, he really knew his chemicals.

Not only did Adams extensively affect his images through chemical manipulation, he also used choice of paper and extensive burning and dodging to create his images. It would be exciting to see what he could manage to do with Photoshop

Bassman2003: Thanks for the review. I am still using LR6, so some day soon I will need to make a choice between starting the subscription or leaving Adobe. CO seems decent but it is not great to hear the performance is behind LR, which is it's biggest weakness.

Bassman2003
Good to hear but why is the reviewer saying performance is an issue?

I think now that there are several posts where other people also comment on the better performance of c1 over LR, I can only say I don't know. Maybe its related to the specific hardware and how it interacts with the software.

"...but it is not great to hear the performance is behind LR, which is it's biggest weakness.

On my old 2011 Mac Mini, with latest versions of LR classic and C1, C1 is noticeably faster than LR, at most things, including preview rendering.

On article Alien Skin Exposure X4 software review (111 comments in total)
In reply to:

Victoria Marshall: This is a Godsend for me. As a black and white shooter, it pretty much copies what Lightroom did with Silver Efx Pro, -only it seems to be better integrated. I just can't get the fine B&W fine tuning that I could with Silver Efx Pro, anywhere else.

Also, a much better program for organizing, and storing your photos.

Alien skin seems to be looking to grab the disgruntled Lightroom users who are fed up with their subscription model, and the shabby treatment Adobe has given to the little guys.

Although, I don't routinely use it, I've run Silver Efex pro from Capture One and Affinity Photo, and I'm sure you will be able to run it from other programs as well. You don't need Lightroom to use Silver Efex. Your existing copy Silver Efex should work with other programs but if not you can buy the current version from DXO, which has no new features but better compatibility with some host programs.

(unknown member): Still missing basics:
- Save As.. (tiff) - So can not be integrated in workflow
- Level tool still not fixed

Now working
- Keyboard to select tool. Better
- Selection tool. Better

Hoping they get it right before PS CS6 stop working on current MacOs..

@NicoPPC . "AFAIK, you can not "turn around".. You can not from the raw convertor "Edit in ..." (in Affinity as Tiff), then do your editing, and "Save.." back in the DAM/Raw convertor."

You can round trip as PSDs, but you need to go into the AP preferences to tell AP to overwrite PSDs. Works fine with Capture One, where it round trips exactly the same way as you can round trip to PhotoShop. Unless its changed with 1.7 there is no overwrite option for Tiffs.

razorfish: Sony is still the biggest sponsor of dpreview I see. How about pointing out the abysmal lack of native APS-C glass? Interchangeable lens cameras are all about the ecosystem, and it doesn’t make sense to give a ”gold award” based on the body alone.

"Sony is still the biggest sponsor of dpreview I see."

Where is this information published? It would be interesting to see exactly how much the different companies sponsor DPReview.

goodgeorge: Just tried Fast Raw Viewer and love it even more, than Mechanic. I think it's even faster, than Mechanic and has basic RAW editing, like manipulating exposure, contrast and WB. What a tool!

@myotisone and Schweikert: Below is a copy of my exchange with Camera Bits, when I asked about adding RAW histograms .

I'm confused now, were you talking about viewing raw images or raw histograms. That main exchange with Kirk was about raw histograms. But I didn't realise it was only the Mac that offered a raw view toggle, which I have just discovered they have removed from PM6. No explanation, just that its been removed.

I have FRV set up as the main editor in PM, and just flick between the two as part of my more detailed evaluation.

refusenik: I downloaded it last night and played around with it briefly to see what it could do - for the steep price I'd expect a slicker UI. I only used it to browse my RAW files in a folder and couldn't see why I'd use Photo Mechanic rather than Fast Raw Viewer to separate the duds and keepers, especially as FRV lives up to it's name and costs a fraction of the price of PM which seems slow and clunky.

@refusenik

Yes FRV, is possibly better and certainly cheaper if that's all you want to do, but that isn't what PM is designed for, even though it offers that function.

Lucas_: I still use ImageIngesterPro for automatically renaming photo files in my cards and downloading them to internal HD directories / folders organized by dates taken ( year/ month/ day ) plus a back up copy on an external HD. My photo files add up to around 100,000 originals at this time. Unfortunately, that excellent and simple software is not supported anymore and I just can't find a similar substitute to my liking. It's already showing some "hickups" on Windows 10 latest versions. If anybody shares my concerns and knows of a simple app ( free or low-cost ) that does that job, please let me know! Thanks!

@brianric
>Downloader Pro is useless for Mac users.

But the OP is asking about Windows 10.

@ewelch
Have you tried Photo Mechanic 6? It's supposed to be 2-3 times faster than 5.

I have, it's noticeably faster for me (on my old Mac Mini), which is what most people are reporting, but some people are reporting it as slower. But PM is about "workflow" speed and some of the speed increases it seems, refer to the time it takes to complete a PM task, not just raw speed of rendering and scrolling.

In this regard, PM6 is faster than PM5 for me, and going back to the OP, they are both faster than FRV, but FRV is aimed at a different customer.

>I had asked the creators of PM some time ago to add RAW viewing to it.

PM5 has raw viewing, pressing Q toggles raw view off and on. But as far as I am aware you can't make this a default (not on PM5 anyway)
