Capture One Pro 8.3
The Professional Choice in Imaging Software

Capture One Pro 8.3 continues to evolve as the best partner for your camera system. The new Phase One XF camera inspired us to expand the communication between Capture One and the tethered camera. Therefore 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. 

Finally tethered transfer speed gets a boost again with the new Phase One IQ3 Digital Back.
