Expands Leica, Leaf, Mamiya support
Phase One has released a new version of Capture One, 5.2. The software handles a professional photography workflow, including the import of RAW files as well as basic editing tasks, for example color, sharpness and contrast. A Pro version adds more advanced options, such as tethered shooting, spot removal and skin tone enhancement. The v5.2 upgrade brings new profiles for several Nikon DSLRs: the D3s, D3x, D3, D2x, D700, D300, D300s and D90.
The profiles should improve the color, tone and consistency of photos processed through Capture One. Also new in the software is better tethered shooting, Live View support for Leaf and Mamiya systems, and the first compatibility with the Leica X1. The update is free to current owners of Capture One 5; the standard edition of the software is $129, while Pro is $399. Upgrade discounts are available. Macs must be running Mac OS X 10.5.8 or better.
