Phase One has released the latest version of its Capture One Software, version 4.7.
The new 4.7 version introduces a new enhanced image package file format to supposedly "make it easier to share adjusted Phase One digital back-generated RAW files". It also permits adjustment of both JPEG and TIFF files. And it adds tethered shooting support for Canon 5D Mark II and Nikon D3X.
The Enhanced Image Package (.eip file extension) now permits packaging of a Phase One RAW image file together with the adjustment settings applied to the RAW file, with no changes to the original RAW file or re-arrangement of settings.
In addition to the new Enhanced Image Package, Phase One has now added JPEG and TIFF support. All of the existing technology in Capture One 4 is activated for both JPEG and TIFF files with the exception of the Lens correction tools. Now, scans, or older archived files that are in TIFF or JPEG format can be added to existing work and adjusted using Phase One’s patented algorithms.
Finally tethered capture support (PRO and DB versions) has been added for Canon 5D Mark II and Nikon D3X owners.
Capture One 4.7 is available now and comes in three versions: 4.7, 4.7 PRO and 4.7 DB. Capture One 4.7 is a free service release to existing Capture One 4.x owners. Capture One 3.x customers can upgrade to a similar version of Capture One 4.6 at no extra cost.
