Capture One suppresses noise much more so than Adobe does by default, but without losing any apparent detail. Colors from Adobe were generally good and matched the out-of-camera JPEGs better, but occasionally inn my testing I found that skin tones could make people look a bit ill.

When it comes to the selection of controls on offer and their ease of use, both ACR and Capture One are pretty close. Some other differences are in their distortion correction and auto adjustments.

For distortion I think Adobe has a slight edge, but for auto adjustments I definitely ended up preferring Capture One over ACR’s more punchy, consumer-friendly look. I was also impressed with Capture One’s performance. Sure, Adobe still rules the roost in this respect — and its most recent update looks to have taken another step forward — but it’s also payware software being pitted against a completely free alternative. And Capture One gets far, far closer in terms of raw speed than any other bundled software I’ve yet tried.

If cost is a primary concern for you and you don’t need to work with multiple camera brands, then I think it’s a no-brainer. Using Capture One Express Fujifilm could save you enough over the lifetime of your camera to buy a lens or accessory while still providing good speed, good image quality and a healthy selection of controls. If you want the maximum possible performance, support for multiple camera brands or the extended features offered by Lightroom or Photoshop, though, then I think an Adobe Creative Cloud subscription remains your best bet.

C1 had excellent customer survive in my experience, I think that is worth talking about in a review like this. C1 seems to make lighter images which should not matter as it will be adjusted manually anyway , but geometric lens correction seem bad in C1 – images BULGE compared to LR.

Maybe lens profiles function was not set correctly? Performance comparison was not very clearly presented; which one was more responsive?

Final render speed does not matter much compared to UI performance. I’m fed up with Adobe’s bloated offering and hogging of my PC’s resources. It took close to an hour to uninstall the Adobe crap on my pc and to be sure I was rid of it I used a registry cleaner to take care of the rest. I mostly agree with the reviewer. But before that the only let down from C1 is mostly related to lens corrections. Only missing local corrections from C1 express, but it is free and way better than Fujifilm X Raw Studio.

BTW, comparing default settings in test does not make sens – it says nothing what each program can do. Please enlighten us about the original colors you saw when the photos were taken. How do you know it isn’t the Adobe product that shifts colors? It would be nice to see Darktable covered. It is not a manufacturer-provided software but neither is Capture One Express.

I liked the attention to detail in your article, but was surprised to see no mentioning of local adjustments. I understand Capture One Express, unlike the full “Pro” version, does not support local adjustment, which is a major downside in my view. I’m also wondering whether LR managed to provide good X-trans support.

It had issues at finest detail level in the past whereas C1 was praised in that regard. There could also be a mention of all the extra features LR offers even beyond what the full Capture One “Pro” version offers.

Having said that, I find a choice between either the free “Express” version and the paid LR a bit artificial. Before choosing LR, I’d advice anyone to have a good look at the C1 “Pro” version which offers comprehensive UI configurability and some very nice features like the “Skin Tone” tool.

Elsewhere I also find Adobe rendition more natural with the exception of the giant teapot example where Capture One is more natural. My preference is not to emulate in camera jpgs but to have a more natural starting point for edits so on that score Adobe comes out top most of the time. DNG converter is free It’s the same download for the free express or pro version for Fuji, Nikon and Sony. You just have to choose during installation what you want. You can always check the correct upgrade price from your express to the unlimited fuji, Sony or Nikon version from your capture one account.

The pro version for all camera makes is the most expensive. The cheaper unlimited function versions for Nikon, fuji and Sony are the same, but just limited to this specific camera manufacturer. Note that the installer file contains all Capture One product variants. However, you will need a license key to activate any of those starting from Capture One To get the license key for activating days fully-featured Capture One trial or Capture One Express, proceed with the links below.

I prefer the C1E default look and the appearance of the highlights which as you note have more contrast. Excepting the excessive default noise reduction C1E applies. This was all screen output? Although I appreciate these are Raw conversions, I would be curious as to how the printed output would appear.

I just organize in Bridge and work in sessions. I don’t keep images that aren’t print worthy. I don’t see the problem. It is best to import and move folders using LR because the catalogue needs to know where the files are. Outside of that you can use any other developer you like and it won’t effect LR edits.

If you are going to move folders around what is the difference between using the OS or LR. Same amount of steps. I wish Capture 1’s catalog system was better. Wish dxo photolab, and all the manufacturers software had good catalogs. Could just be habit. I’ve been using LR from the beginning. It’s fast and easy for me. As is working on images. I’ve tried several different software solutions, capture one, DXO, aperture, and all the software that comes with my cameras. I’ve tried to stick with one that was easiest for me and learn it best as I could.

I still use the others sometimes to take a look at results. I almost always come back to what I know best. For basic edits, The free C1 option is worth looking into. Of course if you’re an Adobe user looking to dump your subscription, the learning curve is a bit higher, but easier than starting from scratch.

It can be limited though, but maybe pairing it with something like Affinity might be a good combo. I often saw the “free” or Express versions as very basic, for basic adjustments — exposure, highlights, shadows, etc, and sharpening and cropping but lacking some of the more advanced options like some local adjustments. So there’s a trade-off. Darktable is completely free, has no feature limitations, a plethora of tutorials on YouTube, works with downloadable LUTs for example Fuji film simulations, but also a huge number of others, as it supports multiple common file types , styles, and plugins for example for blending , and supports both advanced and beginner-friendly workflows.

You just have to set it up. You can apply customised settings at importing in C1, please note I have the paid version, not sure if this apply to the free version.

This is the reason for the decreased detail Mike notices in the higher ISO comparisons. I use Passport profiles for all my lenses and bodies If there is please let me know how. I know C1 has pre figured profiles, but they are not my camera and lens combos. I recently got the datacolor eqivalent, but do not understand how they are supposed to work yet. It creates XMP files which would seem to me to not be the same. There does appear to be some trade-offs in doing so, but not always in Adobe’s favor.

On the whole, manufacturer’s software is pretty darned good, especially for free. This isn’t “mfr” software though. It’s just an alternative to the other paid options. However, if you work with other people collaborate Adobe might be a better choice as it’s more widely used.

It’s “manufacturer offered software” and it’s free for use with specific cameras. It, along the others software tested so far, is a viable option for many people. It won’t be viable for ALL however. Here, we have worms capturing the buildings and almost every flat surface on them I feel like in my tests worms went away awith simple adjustment to sharpening. I use Phocus for conversion for prints C1 Express is free basic RAW editor. And also has some features better than paid LR.

For example you have Levels and much more usable curves! HSL is also much better, you can edit color range. Histogram is more usable also.

WB is usual better as noted in the review more natural and selectable auto adjustments. Sharpening is good and you have few algorithms for clarity. And basically you get much better starting point for Sony or Fuji! And this is almost for free. This is much better solution for hobby or low budged PRO usage.

Compared to any kind of subscription products even own C1 PRO. You can chain C1 Express to some free pixel editors like gimp also. I really love Capture One the Pro version for editing my Fuji files. But I don’t understand why they don’t give us a panorama feature like lightroom does. That’s so important! The Nikon RAW files look so oversaturated and colors are just completely off. That means I have to either try a new editing software or switch back to Lightroom.

Or did they improve that in version 21? Even after it was requested by many people since around 9 years. And last year like real joke they dropped some kind of advanced color replacement as revolutionary local HSL tool Also Adobe AI adjustments and selection tools are poorest in the industry. And this is after many topics in the news for their big advancements and achievements in the filed of image editing and AI. Also could not understand praise about LR Classic interface.

This is the most obsolete and not ergonomic interface for work with mouse in any image editing product. If you want to make precise adjustments with mouse you can go crazy chasing after this small tinny sliders. Not to mention PS interface and all over the place effects, filters and adjustments Only really good thing with Adobe is documentation to say something good Also no focus stacking.

So they have just panorama and HDR stacking which is far away from ultimate stacking features. For all else you will need PS. Video-vs-photo which software do you use for stacking or panorama? I agree with you when it comes to LR interface. The sliders are just too small, it’s so much more comfortable in Capture One Layers are also great there.

Still evaluating, do not have favorite for now. There might still be the spot removal, but local tonal corrections and local sharpening are very important too. If you need all features you can get PRO which has muuuuch better local adjustments compared to the very basic one in LR! Or you can just chain it with other pixel editor for local adjustments. Video-vs-Photo Agreed!

This software allows for good raw development and OK basic photo-management. It is not designed to stop you from buying CaptureOne, proper. It works fine as a raw developer with output exported to a bit mapped editor of your choice! Capture One Express Fujifilm”. All of them add and remove some features. And there is no free version either. Are you afraid to say Lightroom is not quite there when it comes to professional editing?

I use the full Capture One. The huge advantage for Fuji is the presence of the camera profiles. All the film simulations etc seem to be copied to Capture One. If the free version has these profiles that may be beneficial. New versions of Capture One added Pro profiles for cameras. Those seem to render skies much better. Timely article, thank you. I’m about to get a X-E4 and have LR6. I’ve tried the demo of Iridient, seems ok not great.

My question is, on Capture One express, can you save yr edits a Tiff files so I can edit in other software without losing data? Cheers if u can help. Now it is a little bit of an over exaggeration, but Capture One Express is like a demo of what you can do with Capture One. It definitely does not give you a full experience of what you can do with it and most of the useful functions have been taken out of this basic ‘free’ version.

Capture One Expres is a good way to see if it fits your way of working and to see if you like its color rendering, but don’t expect too much of it. It definitely is not a replacement for your Lightroom, nor is it actually a reference to what you can truly achieve with Capture One.

I would say both apps have their own pros and cons and don’t forget you get Photoshop for free with you Adobe subscription. That said I do like Capture One Pro better. I use the pro version and suppose the free one is similar in this regard. You can select to edit in external program and it exports the file with all edits to TIFF that is then opened by Photoshop. You can select 16 bit color, AdobeRGB color space etc. You can export in whatever format you like.

And yes this is free basic RAW editor. Thanks guys. Think i was hoping for a tiny bit more. I am trying out Capture One Express Fujifilm again. My last time was in , and I immediately deleted it because I am allergic to library and catalog stuff. Surprise, the new install opens up with OK, just found out how to get rid of it. And, by the way it is tuning hardware acceleration with an estimated time of 60 minutes Pro only, not Express.

There are plenty of useful autocorrect options for just about every tool, and these work better than my version of Lightroom. The auto levels adjustment seems particularly spot on. The Express version is obviously a bit more limited. Capture One has these too. When you use layers in Capture One Pro , you can make targeted adjustments to your photos and still use the majority of the image editing tools available, not just the ones in a given tool.

This is a huge benefit for those who like a fine level of control over photo manipulation. For mask creation you can paint them in manually, create a linear gradient mask, or a radial gradient mask similar to Luminar, actually. It also offers a feathering tool and edge refinements.

The Luma Range feature in Capture One Pro is a particularly useful way of selecting areas of an image. Everything from Levels to Color Balance tools work in layers, and you can adjust the opacity of each edit layer — something that can only be done by way of a third party plugin in Lightroom see these Lightroom Tips for more info. This latest version of Capture One Pro 12 now has luminosity masks. From there you can adjust the affected color range, hue, saturation and lightness. The 3-Way option even lets you adjust the color tint separately in the shadow, midtone and highlight areas.

Do you want to affect the blues in your photo, but not the blue-greens? Need to smooth out the skin tones? No problem. Simply choose the Skin Tone tab, select a color range, and adjust the uniformity sliders. The Express version just has the Basic tab.

However, if you want to have complete control over your color , Capture One certainly wins hands down over Lightroom and everyone else in the same niche. If you shoot in a studio, odds are you know the value of shooting tethered. Most studio photographers who shoot tethered already use Capture One.

Tethering features in Capture One Pro makes it the obvious choice for studio photographers. With it you can control just about everything via the tether, including details as particular as the flash curtain sync mode. If you were ever thinking of shooting tethered, Capture One is the editing software to try first. It also just looks better — almost on par with Photoshop which is where I usually do my more difficult spot healing.

If you send your work off to an editor or work with a team, Capture One Pro has an annotations feature that makes collaboration much easier.

Definitely helpful for collaborative editing or sending an image with notes off to a client. Capture One allows you to organize according to your photography sessions instead of of using the catalog. Many say that Capture One actually outperforms Lightroom in terms of both speed and stability. You can apply Styles to enhance curves, saturation and tonal adjustments in your images — all without changing key capture parameters like exposure and white balance.

There are several Styles available by famous photographers, helping you emulate their color grading. One of the huge benefits of using Fujifilm X-series camera are the built-in film simulations like Acros, Classic Chrome, Velvia etc. Capture One 12 now adds the ability to change the starting point of your editing to one of the film simulations, as Curves within the Base Characteristics Tool.

There are a few places where Capture One falls short. For those of us who use them regularly, this could be an issue. Into Nik or Topaz filters? No go. Use any of the fantastic portrait packages out there? Too bad. Capture One only has a few third-party plugins and no ability to do HDR or panoramas. No fun. One thing new in version 12, though, though, is export plug-in support. The history panel is a tool I use often. While Capture One lets you undo edits and easily reset adjustments more easily than Lightroom, actually , not having a history panel really cramps my style.

There are workarounds, like creating a number of clone variants, etc. One of these is that when I rename a file, it moves to somewhere else in the catalog, which can get annoying when trying to compare a series of photos. This bothers me, as it forces me to go to another program if I need one. There are also no online sharing options, which will definitely affect some folks.

The bottom line? Studio photographers might also choose to organize by sessions rather than the catalog. The Express version is obviously a bit more limited. Capture One has these too. When you use layers in Capture One Pro , you can make targeted adjustments to your photos and still use the majority of the image editing tools available, not just the ones in a given tool.

Definitely helpful for collaborative editing or sending an image with notes off to a client.

For example, in this image, I have drawn a gradient mask on the left side of the picture and adjusted the white point:. Another great tool — Color Balance which allows you to separately color tone shadows, midtones and highlights. For professional photographers, Capture One Pro Fujifilm offers a variety of tools to develop your photography business:.

Perpetual license means that you pay for a specific version of Capture One and you can use it as long as you want. All the updates within a current version are free, upgrade to the next version is paid. Subscription Capture One Pro Fujifilm license is available with three subscription plans:.

Subscription license means that you always have an access to the newest version of Capture One. At the moment, this is Capture One 12, but even when Capture One 13 will be released, you will immediately have an access to it. With the subscription, you can run Capture One Pro Fujifilm on two different computers simultaneously.

If you would cancel the subscription, you will not lose your editings and image archives; you will be just not able to run Capture One until you would renew the subscription. Subscription is a smart choice when a days trial is over, and you feel that you need more time to test Capture One in your workflow.

Perpetual Licence is much more profitable in the long-term. Starting with Capture One Pro Fujifilm Pro benefits new users with a lower price tag, but if you already own the license — paid upgrades will be more cost-effective for you.
