Capture One 21 (14.0.0) is a feature release containing new functionality, new camera and lens support, and important bug fixes.
New Features in Capture One 21
Capture One 21 introduces a new type of camera profile (for select cameras including the Phase One IQ3 100 and IQ4 150 digital backs), ProStandard, that renders colors more naturally. Formerly, this kind of color control was only available in our Enterprise product for high-end studio users.
These profiles have multiple purposes:
- Improved preservation of color across contrast gradients, resulting in more natural colors from shadows to highlights
- Smoother transitions between colors of different hues
- Better retention of colors when applying image adjustments
- More standardized colors across different camera models
The new profiles are particularly suitable for portrait photography and product photography of products with saturated or otherwise challenging colors, such as orange and neon colors.
- HEIF support
- Leica tethering
- Improved Importer
- Easy brush adjusting
- Improved performance
- Enhanced tooltips
- Easy access to tutorials
Capture One 21 (14.0.0) also contains user experience changes, general bug fixes, and under-the-hood tweaks.
