On article Why Capture One can't replace Adobe Lightroom (66 comments in total)

Reilly Diefenbach: Capture One 11 can't replace CC or DXO photolab or even CNX-D for my D850 because it can't do fine detail as well.

I can only go by what you yourself have put up as your best work, Gary.

I use whatever software works best, Gary. The snapshots you take don't require the highest quality anyway.

fPrime: It's easier to buy a better camera to get colors/tones right at capture.

Any idea what kind of sensor the better camera should have, f?

Reilly Diefenbach: The problem I have with C1 is that I can do everything they're just getting around to for $10 a month instead of $20. But I would still have to buy Photoshop for the things DXO and C1 can't do. C1 is a good program, I'm sure, within its limitations, but the price is a bit of a killer. I'll be downloading the trial to see if they've caught up to or even surpassed Develop Process 4 for control of highlights and shadows.

I know exactly the mushy look to which you refer, Matthew, but to go over the top and claim that we're all pounding our h/s into jelly is just wrong. A light hand on the sliders is usually a good idea whatever the vendor. My experience with C1 version 10 is that the dreaded plasticity sets in a touch earlier than with LR. As to C1 ver 11, we shall see.

Let's increase the military budget immediately to counter this horrific threat!

Rick Knepper: I guess in another 10 years, we'll see the third lens in this family. or maybe they'll just start over with a new generation. If these lenses (M in general) have such high resolution, they deserve to be backed by a high resolution sensor.

Don't hold your breath :^)

Good tip, Sankos, bookmarked.

winofigments: Unless Capture One could eliminate the need for Photoshop, some of us are still faced with having to pay Adobe $10 to forget about the woefully slow Lightroom but keep Photoshop. And then add another monthly fee (or purchase) in the form of Capture One. And then there's still the issue of what program to use for cataloging, which I suppose could still be Lightroom. Not exactly efficient.

I'll be checking speed between LR and C1 among other things.

Grumpyrocker: They're having a laugh with that 10 to 11 upgrade price. No thanks Phase One, you go into the same pile I left my Adobe subscription in.

Nice LP, Grumpy!

ttran88: It’s just plain amazing to see the lack of love for Canon around here, 2017 Canon has given us the amazing 6Dm2 but yet no love from DPR...... What a shame, but hey who cares Canon is still the best selling brand so your favorite gear articles mean SWAT!!!.

Snark alert :^)

Burnt to a Crisp: Barney, there's a reason you eschewed the D850 for the M10, a manual focus camera with an archaic coupled rangefinder focusing system, a tunnel-type optical viewfinder, no video mode and not even so much as a USB socket.

It's because the D850 is yesteryear's goods, the swan's song of a bygone era when DSLRs walked the earth.

Who'd want to be associated with that?

Appropriate handle.

MrBrightSide: This is the worst possible news for Canon and Nikon: now that photographers can easily and cheaply experience for themselves how much better medium format pictures look, they'll never be happy again with the comparatively inferior photos from their small-sensor cameras. I predict lots of hair-tearing and lonely nights wondering ’why has my life suddenly lost its meaning?’

The only winners here are Pentax photographers who have the luxury of choosing either pixel shift or moving up to the relatively inexpensive 645.

Sony people? Yes, they have their little pixel shift trick too, but not the magnificent Takumars to back them up. In comparison to medium format, Sony images will look just as threadbare and sad as the ones from Nikon and Canon cameras.

Medium format digital, looking for a reason to exist.

tko: "If you ask me, it's just one more reason why smartphones will topple the mighty entry-level DSLR."

Try shooting your kid's recital and post those photos. Or a birthday party at a dimly lit Italian restaurant. Or your kid's soccer or basketball game. What is the zoom range of this cell :( ? How powerful is the flash :( ? Even my wife will tell me, "my phone is gonna be a problem, can you bring the dSLR?"

The point is, dSLR users can pick a thousand situations where the dSLR kills a cell phone. Cell phone user can only pick a few situations where their phone is more convenient, and no situations where it beats a dSLR.

So yeah, post those day light, stationary images and keep hoping.

Maybe some day phones will be decent indoors, but they are worthless now.
