Use it to remember what caught you in the moment, make notes to share with your retoucher, or simply jot down a reminder for yourself for later.

Capture Pilot

With Capture Pilot, you can trigger a capture remotely* and browse, rate and examine images remotely, as they are shot. Capture Pilot enables a wireless connection between a web browser or iOS device with the current Capture One Session or Catalog.

Let your clients follow the shoot and give feedback with Capture Pilot to ease up the workflow and save time selecting shots for further editing.

Use the smooth Live View functionality with the IQ2 50pm, IQ3 50pm, and IQ3 100mp based camera systems, including full zoom capabilities.

It even includes geo-tagging functionality, allowing for the tagging of images with location data, both synchronous with the shoot, or at a time offset from the actual shoot.

Capture One DB (digital back) is a software option that not all users realize is available. Capture One DB is a full working version of Capture One for digital backs only. Capture One DB’s only limitation is that it does not support DSLR files or JPEGs.

Capture One DB is:

  • Free of charge for all Phase One Back users
  • Updates from version to version are always free of charge
  • Can be installed on as many machines as needed
  • Activation code is not needed to use
  • Internet access is not needed to use

Export Path

Capture One Pro 11 has a full complement of Local Adjustments. Fine-tune details with for instance luminance noise reduction and white balance in targeted areas of your images for unlimited creative control. Work directly on the RAW file to ensure maximum quality and detail retention and save time by making all adjustments in ome application.

Duplicate Checker

The Duplicate Checker makes sure that you don’t import the same file twice in your Catalog or Session. The robust catching-mechanism ensures that importing the difference from the last import is easy and efficient.

Color Improvements

Improved handling of color makes sure layered color adjustments work to perfection. The Color Balance, Color Editor, White Balance and other tools have been re-engineered to show smoother transitions between each layer.
