COPENHAGEN, June 23, 2016 — Phase One, creator of the world’s finest open-platform high-end camera systems and professional imaging software, today released Capture One Pro 9.2. Known for its outstanding tethered capture capability, high-quality raw conversion, and precision image editing tools, Capture One Pro is already considered by many to be the only image capture application for the serious professional photographer. The release of version 9.2 aims at a better culling workflow from selections and metadata sources to accelerate editing workflow to new levels.

New camera support includes:

  • Pentax K-1
  • Nikon D500
  • Canon EOS M10
  • Canon G5x
  • Canon G7x MkII
  • Canon G9x

Powerful new workflow features include:

  • Access assets quickly and precisely: Select from file list, select by variant position and create album from selection form a large group of improvements under targeted selections;
  • New rate and cull workflow using “Select Set”: Select a number of images for viewer preview, then advance through the browser by the same number. Navigating within the selection to rate and cull makes editing and comparing fast and efficient;
  • Capture One 9.2’s new color management module for Tiffs gives users more accurate preview returned from retouching/round trip applications – making Tiff handling in Capture One better than ever before;
  • Phase One XF camera users can turbocharge focus stacking workflow with a multi-image round trip to the Helicon Focus application. Shoot, organize, group, process and stack — all in a few clicks;
  • New Shortcut Engine: More functions can be shortcut than ever before! All cursors can now be shortcut, users can navigate the library collections (even when hidden) and shortcut support for the new 9.2 selection methods all help to make the workflow sing.

“Pro photographers deserve a strong ally to vanquish workflow issues and give them the most reliable, efficient workflow and performance,”

said James Johnson, Software Product manager, “Capture One Pro 9.2 is about workflow, not work!”

Once upon a time, there was a Danish company that decided to make medium format digital cameras. This company was made up of hard working engineers who wanted to make the best medium format digital camera in the world. To this end, the engineers strived for perfection in all of their endeavors. But the software available for developing the images captured by their very fine cameras did not satisfy them. So they got their software engineering friends to write a program to do the job the way they wanted. They did so and the software they created made their photographs look even more amazing.
Photographers from around the world loved the Danish camera company and their software. But the Danish cameras were very expensive, and some of the poor photographers wept that they could not take such beautiful images with their Japanese cameras. The Danish camera company felt bad for the poor photographers and decided to make their magic software compatible with their Japanese cameras. This made the poor photographers very happy as they could now make images almost as beautiful as the Danish cameras.
