Elonlukatski: I think some of the things happening with smart phones could be a powerful tool for smaller sensor cameras such as Olympus MFT and Fuji with APSC.

if Olympus IS improve to one can always shoot at ISO 100
would beat phone

Jefftan: " with my Sony a7R II full-frame camera, but that required a 4-stop reverse graduated neutral density ('Daryl Benson') filter, and a dynamic range compensation mode (DRO Lv5) :

BS
even APS-C, 1 RAW file is all u need

DRO Lv5 too extreme, always auto for me

from now I won't complain capture one high price as long as it is available
a future which can only use Adobe is scary

really don't want to lose PRIME

unless for crop, what use is so many resolution

Jefftan: real bad news
there is no replacement that equal PRIME NR

so must convert to tif first with another RAW converter to use in Neat Image?

RSColo
can u share how u use neat image?
with RAW?

why I like PRIME is because it is simple, just use default and excellent result

Jefftan: What exactly is jpeg compression ratio?
If in Lightroom I export in default quality 60 vs say 20
File size difference will be huge and may look quite the same even at 100%

Confusing

Found an interesting fact from your link
“ the dynamic range of an 8-bit JPEG file is about 11 stops”

So what use is new A7III that claim to have 15 stop of dynamic range

This is something I wonder long ago
If final output is a 8 bit jpeg, what use are those new full frame sensor
JPEG may not even record all image data of a MFT sensor

As confusing as ever
My rule is to use a compression quality in Raw program that will result in file size 1/3 of maximum quality 100

Usually quality around 70 or so

xPhoenix: I like Nikon colors. LR replicates that look, and gives us camera calibration profiles to choose from if we don't like Adobe Standard. Apparently, this is too difficult for the Phase One people. Sigh.

Color is subjective
Most will not tweak color and if one don't like C1 color , he will not use it
That is normal
But I keep emphatize color related to contrast and white balance

One problem with buying huelight profile is auto in Lightroom is tune only to Adobe default color profile

do not even work with camera standard color profile is what I find

So if use huelight can not use Lightroom auto

Capture one color is very good but color related to contrast and white balance
I will adjust these before trying to tweak color

Chriscotech: I use both Capture One and Lightroom, depending on the job. For the most control over the image and best result it is C1. If I have a rush job with lots of images it has to be Lightroom. I was hoping there would be a C1 update that improved the cutting and pasting of attributes between files, I mean basic things like select all. Currently you have to tick off the settings you want to transfer one by one. There are also no shortcut keys to like or reject images. I tag them green and red but that is clunky compared to Lightroom’s Single key shortcuts.

If I had to choose one post production app though, it would be C1 for outright IQ and that I can buy it outright knowing that it will be supported in the future

Just auto adjust
Exposure, contrast, brightness, levels (don't adjust HDR normally as effect too strong)
and result way better than Lightroom

C1 can copy adjustment to multiple files easily
Don't understand your complain

I would say if one do not have time and just auto adjust
C1 still win

Just talk about NR, C1 is effective if not at extreme high ISO
Lightroom NR is useless, better leave luminance at zero otherwise will soften image and remove detail

What I like about C1 is u can use it as simple or as complicated as u like

Right now I just load pics in
Auto adjust: exposure,contrast,brightness,levels
than export and excellent result

my A6500 compare with camera jpeg
Many times better in color, detail, noise reduction and no more underexpose pics

xPhoenix
Have u try lower the saturation slider
Color may also be due to white balance setting
C1 interpret white balance in different way compare to lightroom

Film extra shadow seem to be same color as film standard but lower contrast

Contrast change color, for example blue sky less saturated with lower contrast
So color appear to change but actually what really change is contrast
