Since my review in mid-2013, this application has become very stable. There are still times when I get a beach ball for whatever reason and it makes no sense to me. I'm using it a 2.6 GHz i7 MacBook Pro with 16 GB of RAM and OWC's fastest internal SSD.

I haven't made the leap to catalogs but sessions are catalogs of a slightly different nature. This functionality has become stable, thankfully, as I was deleting broken sessions from time to time.

I stand by this as the finest raw development software, above Silkypix and above that which Adobe makes.

It's simple enough to use the automatic features or you can adjust almost anything on your own. They also include Styles, like Silkypix Tastes, which allow a packaged group of settings to be applied in one click.

FAIL: PhaseOne needs to get away from their "gotta make enterprise folks activate each install" fiasco and stop making their software a huge PITA to deploy to enterprise users. Guys, the year 2000 is calling, they need your help breaking really nice software with really outdated antipiracy hacks. You've got a good product, now all you need to do is fire your Mac installer development team and hire 21st century engineers who have a clue.

Good software.

Friggin' aweful to deploy, lest you waste time/effort "touching" every Mac it gets deployed to.

Since version 7 has a new processing engine, it's taken time to work out the bugs (I'm not saying that it's bad as an Adobe product), and there are still issues like odd delays--and I'm talking about processing on a machine with only an SSD and 16 GB of RAM.

That said, this has to be the finest raw development software--ever. It extracts maximum image quality from each image. It's not working miracles, but they really do analyse images quite thoroughly and have ways to straighten, minimise distortion, improve colour and clarity.

I know that Adobe Lightroom and Apple Aperture are cheaper, but they are cheaper in many ways. Capture One Pro is a better tool for those whose main goal is high image quality.

PROS: Generally am able to achieve higher quality photographers in both color and B&W. Good tool set for architects. Updated selective editing tools. New catalog feature is most welcome.
CONS: Selective editing tools still not up to par, primarily in speed and masking. Slow visual response with global editing sliders when compared with Lightroom or Aperture.
VERDICT: Every year or so I look to ditch Lightroom for something more native to a mac, but every year it (LR) ultimately beats out the competition Photograph quality is 'the' most important thing but if all other important issues fall short I simply won't use it. Such is the case with CaptureOne, it's very good and getting better, but not quite good enough to make the switch (for me). You may feel different and with a 60 day trial it's definitely worth looking at. Note they just came out with their first update so current version is 7.0.1.

Normally I love C1, but is all the time very unstable. I used (or try to use it) one my MBP Retina with Leica M9 DNG - and I am not able to import the pictures.
With NEF-picture it works very great, with currently the best RAW-engine on the market.
But with the unstable 32.bit version it s absolute not reliable

For what it's worth, I also have a brand new MBP Retina and Leica M9. I had no problems importing the files via the SDXC slot. As well, I've imported around 5000+ M9 files on the HD without issue. I've viewed, edited, and exported without issue.

Second day that I discover and work with this new version of Capture one 7, and I love it...
With the ability to create catalogs, I can use this soft like Ap or Lightroom.
It is really one step above the others soft...I compared developing many different raw from my 5D3, Leica M9 and D800 with Aperture, LR 4, PhotoNinja, DXO, ACR and DPP...and always always the details are finer in C One, not to say the colors that are more like in the real life, hair, skin.
That's right that the price is high at the moment, I had it with an update for 69 euros, so it was ok.
C one has some very nice feature that the others have not and I discover more I use it.
It needs maybe a little polish in the corners...but it is ver. 7 new.
Have a try, you will sure want to redevelop your best shots with C1.
Good shots to all.

While this is an indisputably excellent program, it's now twice as expensive as Lightroom and more than three times pricier than Aperture. If you can afford it, it's no doubt a viable choice, but it's not competitive, which puts it beyond the reach of most users. I doubt it can survive on snob appeal alone.

Pretty expensive but it is on sale on the developer's site at 50% off so will give it a try.

Capture One will give you the best quality from your RAW files. Period.

I was quite shocked in fact, when I saw how much better the results were when compared to Aperture and Lightroom.

The learning curve is steeper than the others and there are no D.A.M. features to speak of, but if you invest the time to learn it, Capture One will give you a better looking image every time.

I tend to use Lightroom for quick edits and cataloging, but always end up taking any important images to Capture One for finishing.

I think this would have been a 5 out of 5 but no where did it say that live view was not supported on the DSLRs, only on the medium format cameras! Shame on them. It's a wonderful set of tools but it is hampered by over looking this and worse they don't mention it in the materials to read before buying!

What? You cannot really blame a company for not advertising what an application cannot do? That would be a really loooong list. "This app cannot clean your closet, or make fish pie for you." ;)

Are you confusing tethering with Live View? Tethering works with Leaf digital backs.

If you are a photographer that shoots raw this is the program to use over Aperture or Lightroom for raw processing mainly. Compare your shot jpg with a jpg outputted from a raw in C1P and you will never use in camera jpg again. I use C1P to process the raw files and then imported into LR for their DAM (digital asset management). I've used C1P 5 so this is my take on the older version as I jump on this deal. C1P do have a learning curve to get use to their interface compared to the more streamlined Aperture and LR.
