Capture One 12 – Released

CI-TECH_CaptureOne12_released

New interface  Capture One 12 introduces a new and decluttered “super flat” UI, designed primarily to make Capture One easier to use over long editing sessions. Revised iconography helps to explain basic functionality for new users. The Menu system and equivalent application functions are now also more closely aligned to help aid discovery.  (meh.  I’ve always liked the way Capture One looked.  Maybe in version 12.2 we’ll get ‘classic’ mode) … Read More →

IQ4-150: The BEST digital back EVER for Technical Camera use

IQ4-150: The BEST digital back EVER for Technical Camera use

Bold blog title, I know, but let me break this down, because it is that exciting. The IQ4-150 by model number alone alludes to a new pinnacle of image gathering potential, with it’s 151 megapixel sensor gathering 16-bits of color across 14.5 stops of dynamic range, but there is far more story to be told about this industry leading medium format digital back when it comes to technical camera use. … Read More →

ALPA SILEX MK II – The Technical Camera Powerhouse

ALPA_Silex_Featured

As covered previously in Copal Shutter Care & Alternatives, we are at a turning point for the use of the Schneider & Rodenstock optics used on technical cameras, with their purely mechanical Copal-0 shutters working like little gear & spring timepieces that are now (and have been) out of production and are in dwindling supply for new installations and repairs, forcing us to contemplate what’s next in technical camera shooting.

Capture One 11.3 – Full Fujifilm GFX 50S Support

C1-FujiLensSupport

Capture One 11.3 launched last week with the new ability to tether to and process Fuji RAF format raw files from the medium format GFX 50S. Until now, files from cameras like the X-Pro2, X-T2, and X100 series camera could be processed, but since the debut of the GFX 50S earlier this year, Capture One support has been conspicuously absent. There was, of course, the option to avoid 3rd party apps … Read More →

The purely electronic shutter in Phase One’s IQ3-100 digital backs allow for imaging without the use of any mechanical shutter.  As explained previously, the use of the electronic shutter comes with some caveats of procedure and use, but also there are several methods of firing the electronic shutter when the IQ3-100 is connected to a manual, technical or view camera.

Dark Frame Be Gone!

TechTip-XFTimeLapseTool

In order to maximize image quality and minimize noise on all Phase One digital captures, an additional dark frame of the same shutter speed duration is captured immediately after the image has been captured to record the noise print from that time of shooting and the math from that temporary image will later be subtracted from the original exposure when you view the image in Capture One.  When the dark frame subtraction (DFS) … Read More →
