Phase One is today updating the most popular alternative to Adobe Lightroom: Capture One Pro 9.3. The biggest update is in regards to precision color management–which is ALWAYS a huge issue for photographers. The system is based on the collaboration between Phase One and EIZO. This enables users to create monitor profiles for EIZO ColorEdge CG Series monitors within Capture One Pro with a single click.
In all honestly, if you’re one of those people that complains about Adobe’s cloud system still, then Capture One Pro is the absolute best alternative. It’s approach to editing is quite a bit more sensical for the advanced and professional photographer. A list of the other upgrades are after the jump.
Today at Photokina 2016, Phase One is bringing us a brand new 100MP digital camera back in the form of the IQ1. And for $32,990 you’ll be able to pixel peep to your heart’s content while whispering sweet nothings to your monitor alone in the dark with your computer.
The new sensor in the IQ11 10MP Digital back is a full frame 645 medium format sensor that ranges from ISO 50-12,800–and sports 16 bit color depth with 15 stops of dynamic range.
In addition, Phase One is adding two new Schneider Kreuznach Blue Ring lenses. The 150mm f/2.8 IF is the fastest Blue Ring telephoto lens, and the 45mm f/3.5 gives photographers a bit more to work with on the wider end.
More specs are after the jump.
