Camera Settings tool
The new Camera Settings tool enables you to configure many of the settings of not only the new Phase One XF but other models from Canon, Nikon, Sony and more. So, as opposed to digging through the menus of your camera, simply search for the term in the Camera Settings tool and adjust from there.
New compositional grids have been added too, for example the Fibonacci Spiral and the Golden Ratio. This allows the options available in the IQ systems to be used in Capture One and adds more ways to achieve a desirable composition.
Advanced File Naming
Capture One will help you ensure consistent file naming from shoot to shoot. The improved naming tool enables you to create customized, token-based naming systems with ease. Choose your own combination of text and tokens to create your own bespoke naming system and apply it an individual photograph or a group of images. Use the new filename search & replace to correct mistakes in the names of several files.
Dynamic Locations are an extension of the already powerful file handling available in Capture One Pro. The location of imported and exported files can be dynamically modified, simply by using a set of Tokens. Dynamic Locations will fully streamline the import and output process on busy shoots with demanding deadlines.
Edit Photos in External Applications
Perform additional editing, retouching or photo manipulation in external applications with just a few clicks. When you are done the edited images will be saved right back into your session or catalog for future safekeeping. Future edits on those images will also be reflected and updates in the session or catalog.
Smart Cursor Tools
Work faster and smarter with the new easy access cursor tools. Just right-click in an image get access to the settings for your chosen cursor tool, right under your cursor.

High Dynamic Range (HDR)
With Capture One Pro 8, you can bring out even more detail in highlights and shadows – even in over- or underexposed images. The improved HDR tool helps you perfect high-contrast scenes by recovering blown-out highlights and opening up dark shadows, all from one single capture.
Capture One Pro 8 introduces a new and unique Film Grain tool that lets you add grain directly to your images to mimic film stock, hide noise or simply for creative effect. The advanced Film Grain algorithms are based on a physical model for how light interacts with silver halide to create authentic grain that is fully scalable and natural to the eye.
