Editors' Review


Capture One Pro for Mac is a professional photo editing suite that places a high value on functionality for the real-world photographer in the field.


High speed: On consumer-level computers, high-end photo editing software can be very resource intensive. Operations sometimes take a great deal of time, and the rest of the computer can slow down noticeably. Capture One Pro seemed to be snappy and responsive, without draining resources excessively at all.

Good camera support: Capture One Pro is designed to function out of the box with a wide range of professional-level cameras. The software supports more than 300 models by Sony, Canon, Nikon, Leica, Panasonic, and more.

Asset management: The program allows you to manage your files as well as edit them. The ability to organize, sort, and compare your various files makes this a very powerful tool for a professional photographer dealing with large numbers of files.

Image quality: This app imports in RAW format. The image quality seems to be exceptionally high, with excellent color and texture present in all the photos that we imported.


Lack of social features: The reality of the digital photo industry now is that a huge majority of photos end up online. So the lack of easy exporting features to online photo sites is a missed opportunity.

Bottom Line

Capture One Pro is a very professional, powerful photo editing application. It seems to be designed as a complete solution for a digital photographer and works exceptionally well.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Capture One Pro for Mac

"Capture One is the leading professional Raw Converter."

May 09, 2011  |  By Martin Turner--2008

 |  Version: Capture One 6.2


Capture One is faster and more interactive than Lightroom, offers more controls than dXo, and provides a smoother workflow from start to finish than Photoshop for digital photography (as opposed to retouching and manipulation) applications.


The only con is that the cataloguing is not done by Capture One, thought it integrates very well with Microsoft Expressions, which is directly supported.


Offering dramatically more functionality than dXo or Lightroom, and many many times faster than either, Capture One is currently the preferred choice of many photographic professionals for Raw development and editing. Everything is configured to make a professional workflow smoother and more transparent, and the overall responsiveness is so good that it almost feels like handling large prints. Most of the controls go a step beyond anything available in competing products, and the the curves and colour controls are better than Photoshop's native (though there are some plugins which are better still). Capture One is mainly aimed at the Medium Format market, though version 6.0 introduced native support for Nikon and Canon. It's hard to set out in just a few words the full range of advantages that Capture One offers. However, the extent of the controls means that this is harder to learn than Lightroom for those who don't intend to work with it every day. The much greater functionality is reflected in the price.
