TAILOR-MADE CAMERA PROFILES

Capture One Pro 8's tailor-made camera profiles are renowned for providing ultimate image quality for leading digital cameras. Each camera is tested and fine tuned extensively by our image quality team to create a customized profile that brings out the very best in your camera. Capture One Pro 8 can be used with more than 300 different camera models.

IMPROVED RAW PROCESSING ENGINE
The entirely new and groundbreaking image processing engine from version 7 has been further improved and supplies more details, lower noise, better color rendition by default, i.e. enhanced out of the box results. Individual profiles for individual cameras have been customized and optimized by Phase One experts. It brings a quantum leap in quality and performance and takes photography to an entirely new level to allow professional photographers around the globe to excel.
IMPROVED LIVE VIEW WORKFLOW
When using a Leaf Credo digital camera back tethered, you can now set up to 3 focus points in the live image and use the new focus meter tool to carefully set your image’s focus plane.
NOISE REDUCTION

By default color noise and luminance noise will be removed from any image no matter what ISO it has been shot at. As removing noise is always a compromise between removing noise and keeping as mush valuable information in the image as possible you will have full control of how to set this compromise to fit your preferred taste.

Luminance and color noise can be removed from images with two easy-to-use sliders. There is also a Noise Reduction Advanced slider with two further adjustments. The ‘Details’ slider gives the best compromise between details and noise. A low value gives smooth surfaces maintaining most edges. A larger value gives more details, but possible grain in higher ISO images. E.g. car paint can be made to appear smooth while preserving the edge sharpness in the rest of the image.

CLARITY

The Clarity Tool can improve hazy images by adjusting local contrast. The tool now allows negative clarity values, which helps smooth out local contrast in portrait images.

The new improved Clarity tool gives users a choice of controls: 'Punch' or 'Neutral'. In principle, using a positive value with the Neutral Clarity slider preserves color, increases contrast and reduces haze. A positive value from the Punch Clarity slider increases contrast, reduces haze and boosts color saturation, which gives an image more ‘Punch’

HIGHLIGHT AND SHADOW RECOVERY
Use the High Dynamic Range tool to recover shadow or highlight detail. This tool helps you to perfect high-contrast scenes by recovering blown out highlights and opening up dark shadows. It will enable you to bring out those details in the shadows and highlights and will now give better contrast in the details of shadows when recovered. You will find it faster to get the desired result without having to use other tools and you should need less manipulation of exposure slider in combination with the HDR sliders. By using this tool you can get maximum dynamic range from your images without always having to shoot multiple exposures.
LOCAL ADJUSTMENTS WITH NEW HEALING AND CLONE LAYERS

Use the improved local adjustments like gradient mask, fill mask and more, to fine-tune the details in targeted areas of your images. Non-destructive local adjustments let you edit selective parts of an image for unlimited creative control and results. Handle the most common retouch jobs with a few strokes and control colors, exposure, contrast, brightness, saturation, sharpening and moiré in targeted areas of your image.

The newly added Healing and Clone layers allow you to do even more of the image manipulation on the RAW images, saving the need to do them in Photoshop afterwards.

IMPROVED LCC WORKFLOW

Handling LCC profiles is easier as there is now a specific LCC tool. You can create LCC profiles for more images at once, and apply them to several images at a time. Images used for LCC profiles are now marked with an LCC tag.

The tool now delivers a more efficient workflow, making and it easier to recognize your LCC images as they are now conveniently tagged. Your entire workflow just got more efficient by removing any unnecessary steps in the process. It is almost like having the perfect assistant for professionals! The process for producing lCC images has now been simplified, especially for multiple images in a batch which require an LCC correction.

WEB-ENABLED CAPTURE PILOT
