I'm sure a future revision to C1 Pro and Express will add support for the D800 and D4, but no schedule has been announced. I'm guessing that older products like C1 ver 4 & 5 will not get support for the new bodies.
This is a message from a total newbie as far as different raw converters go, so, sorry if I am missing out something. But the reason I checked into this string was that I saw in a d800 review on dpreview.com a raw file of the d800 processed by capture one 6 which showed noticeably more detail than the same file processed by other converters. So it should accept files from the d800, shouldn't it?
What I actually meant to ask the forum participants was what they think are the factors which help out more detail by capture one? Any ideas here?
Capture One certainly works (and is a very good raw converter), but it would be a mistake to assume that it gives you more detail than other raw converters. With any of them, you can override the default settings and many allow you to create a new default. For example, in Lightroom, ACR, Capture One, DxO, NX2, etc., you can have a starting point for sharpening that's higher than the normal default and have it applied to all of your images automatically. You can make any one of these just as sharp or sharper than how Capture One appeared in that review. Ditto with many other adjustments such as contrast, saturation, etc.
I would concur with Mr. Walker on this point. Although Capture One Pro is just about the only RAW converter I use any more, I would not have selected it purely on the basis of the sharpness of its output files relative to the other options (LR, ACR, Aperture, DxO, NX2).
