If you are one of the lucky people who have acquired a Panasonic S1 or its bigger brother, the Panasonic S1R we have some good news for you. No longer will you be bound to Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop for your editing needs. The guys and gals over at Capture One have added support for a few new cameras today, and both of those are included. Jump past the break to find out more.
We love Capture One here at The Phoblographer; in fact all of the staff use it to edit their images. One of the reasons we love it is the fantastic support that Capture One offer, along with it’s ease of use, and its ability to get the most out of RAW files. The software guru’s are usually the quickest out of the blocks when it comes to adding new cameras, and their RAW file formats to the list of those supported. A recent post over at L-Rumors confirmed the news today that the S1 and S1R are now supported along with some other cameras.
Capture One announced that they have added support for the Panasonic S1, and the Panasonic S1R. They have also added support for the Sony a6400, the Sony HX99, the Olympus E-M1X, and the Nikon COOL PIX A1000. The software update also includes a ton of support for new lenses from the likes of Fujifilm, Tokina, Leica, and Phase One.
Being able to process your RAW files without first having to convert them to .tiff is a huge deal. I know in the past this is something I have had to do and it is a pain; so to have such quick access to true RAW support for the above listed cameras is great.
If you have never used Capture One you can download a free 30 day trial copy from their official website. Not only can you get Capture One Pro, but there are also dedicated versions for both Fujfilm, and Sony users too. If you are a current Capture One user, simply update to the latest version which is 12.0.3 so that you can add support for the cameras and lenses that are listed above.
