Capture One Pro 11.3 announced: Full Fujifilm X/GFX support & new dedicated Capture One Fujifilm


posted Tuesday, September 25, 2018 at 10:00 AM EDT


It's been a busy day for Fujifilm shooters. Fujifilm announced the new medium-format GFX 50R and a development announcement for a new 100-megapixel GFX.  The other big news is coming from Phase One as they have announced a strategic software agreement with Fujifilm, opening up the Capture One platform for full Fujifilm RAW processing. This marks a large shift in direction for Phase One, as they will now be officially supporting a non-Phase One medium-format camera system.

Specifically, Phase One and Fujifilm are collaborating to broaden and improve the Capture One support for Fujifilm cameras with Capture One 11.3, which we will discuss more later in this article. There is full RAW file support for all Fujifilm cameras, including the medium-format GF, and basic tethering support for select cameras. These “select cameras” include the GFX 50S, X-H1, X-T1, X-T2, X-T3 and X-Pro2. Tethering support will be available in Capture One Pro Fujifilm and Capture One Pro, but will be absent from Capture One Express Fujifilm. C1 Express Fujifilm will include RAW file support for all Fujifilm cameras as well as support for Fujifilm Film Simulations. Regarding Film Simulations, this support is not yet finalized, but will be available for free in an upcoming release. Additionally, Capture One 11.3 includes support for all existing Fujinon GF lenses for the GFX system.

Speaking about today’s announcement, Phase One’s Vice President of Software Business, Jan Hyldebrandt-Larsen, said, “Phase One has designed Capture One both to inspire photographers and to ensure the best workflow and user experience. We are proud to be working to share with Fujifilm shooters the opportunity to benefit from Capture One’s highly responsive processing engine, unmatched color handling, precision-editing tools, and seamless tethered support.”

For non-Fujifilm owners, Capture One 11.3 does not bring a lot of changes, but there is other new camera and lens support. Capture One 11.3 includes support for the Phase One IQ4 digital backs and Sony RX100 Mark Va and RX100 Mark VI cameras. There are also numerous bug fixes for Mac and Windows versions.
