Phase One Media Pro 1 Review

Mike Hagen (Mike_Hagen)

Phase One’s Media Pro 1 marks a new chapter in the life of this leading professional digital asset management software. I’ve been using a version of this product since it was created by iView Multimedia quite a few years ago.

Review Capture Pilot v1.2 With Camera Control

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