Delivers Superior Image Quality; Adapts to Pro Work Styles
COPENHAGEN, DENMANRK--(Marketwire - October 15, 2008) - Phase One A/S today announced the
immediate availability of Capture One 4 PRO, the RAW workflow software for
photographers focused on transforming RAW files into the highest quality
Capture One 4 PRO has been designed to enhance the image quality of
professional digital captures. It is built on a darkroom paradigm to
enhance images and minimize the need for post-production. The workflow is
responsive and flexible, adapting to a photographer's needs.
"Phase One supports pro photographers who prefer straightforward,
responsive, effective options to meet uncompromising standards of quality,"
said British fashion photographer Drew Gardner. "So you find in Capture One
4 PRO an experience more consistent with what photography is all about.
Using Capture One 4 PRO is more like stepping into a darkroom than entering
a post-production computer class."

Capture One 4 PRO is designed to satisfy a photographer's specific work
preference and situation. It offers freedom to create custom tool tabs with
existing personal toolsets, and to work with multi monitor setups.
World leading tethered shooting is delivered by connecting a Phase One
digital back or a supported DSLR camera to the computer and capturing
images directly into Capture One 4 PRO.
The Styles feature has been redesigned to give photographers broader
choices in exploring and creating unique looks that can be controlled and
reproduced to create an exclusive signature.
An enhanced Color Editor feature permits fine-tuning of image colors with
precise adjustment tools. Color adjustments can be saved as presets or as
customized ICC profiles for consistent reproduction across multiple images.
A new Skin Tone tool lets photographers easily set and reproduce skin tones
shot under various light conditions, even without using a gray card.
New Lens Correction tools improve image quality by compensating for
undesired lens characteristics. These tools minimize chromatic aberration,
purple fringing, distortion, sharpness falloff and light falloff. They
permit creative effects such as image framing with a new vignetting tool.
"Phase One pioneered RAW workflow software," said Jan Christiansen,
marketing director at Phase One. "Now, Capture One 4 PRO takes these
innovations to the highest level, with a clean, intuitive interface to give
photographers a creative edge with superior image quality."
Capture One 4 PRO supports Phase One and Mamiya medium format cameras and
RAW files from a wide range of cameras including: Canon, Epson, Fuji,
Konica Minolta, Leica, Nikon, Olympus, Pentax, and Sony. Please see
