Phase One has announced the first major update to their image editing software, Capture One 11. Capture One 11.1 is available now for Mac and Windows and includes a number of improvements as well as new camera and lens support.
Looking at the software's feature set and usability, there are three primary improvements. Workflow has been improved by adding a faster way to access and apply Styles and Presets to a layer on a single image or a batch. The opacity can be directly controlled as well, which should prove to be a nice feature for portrait and wedding photographers who often work on multiple images simultaneously. Similarly, there's a new Spring Styles Pack, which offers bright pastel color grading.
For users new to Capture One 11 or simply looking to improve their skills, Capture One 11.1 includes a Resource Hub. This offers quick on-screen access to free learning resources. Finally, there's a new normalization tool. This provides a reference point for exposure and white balance for batch adjustments, which allows for any color to be used instead of the old neutral gray.
There's plenty of new camera and lens support included as well. The list of added cameras is as follows: Fujifilm X-H1, Leica M262, Leica CL, Leica X-U, Leica V-Lux Typ 114, Leica TL2, Olympus E-M10 Mark III, Olympus E-PL9, Panasonic G9, Panasonic GH5S & Sony A7 Mark III. There are numerous new lenses supported in Capture One 11.1 as well: Canon 24-105mm f/4L IS II USM, Leica M 90mm f/2.8, Leica 90mm f/2, Sony E 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 OSS, Sony FE 24-105mm f/4 G OSS, Tamron SP 70-200mm f/2.8 Di VC USD G2, Tamron SP 35mm f/1.8 Di VC USD, Tamron 28-300mm f/3.5-6.3 Di VC PZD, Tamron SP 90mm f/2.8 Di Macro 1:1 VC USD and Tamron 16-300mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD Macro. Further, for Sony users, Capture Pilot 2.0 has added support for tethered Sony cameras.
Of Capture One 11.1, VP of the Software Business at Phase One, Jan Hyldebrandt-Larsen, says: "Capture One remains dedicated to the needs of ambitious photographers. These latest updates introduce an extension to camera and lens support, as well as an all-new Resource Hub.
