Phase One Media Pro 1 Review

Phase One’s Media Pro 1 marks a new chapter in the life of this leading professional digital asset management software.

Review Capture Pilot v1.2 With Camera Control

Mike Hagen (Mike_Hagen)

A few months ago I tested Capture Pilot v1.0 for the iPad and fell in love with the product.

Even using Capture Pilot strictly as a viewer, it was a fantastic companion for the studio. Over these last few months, Phase One has been diligently at work creating new updates for their software and recently released Capture Pilot v1.2. Read more...

Lightroom for grownups? Phase One's Capture One Pro software offers the ultimate workflow for Phase One and Leaf cameras, and much of this functionality — but not all — is available for Nikon shooters.
