Recommendations and limitations

All users

  • When you have disconnected a camera do not reconnect a camera until the Camera tool status changes to “No Camera Attached”.
  • DNG support is for raw DNG only is not optimized for specific cameras. Other camera users

Other Camera Users

  • Connecting some Canon cameras to the computer after launching Capture One might result in tethered capture being unavailable. If you experience this, connect the camera to the computer prior to launching Capture One.
  • This functionality is not supported for Fujifilm RAW files: processing/exporting to DNG, auto mask, healing with Repair Layers and LCC.
  • This functionality is not supported for sRAW/mRAW files: LCC analysis and healing with Repair Layers.
  • Canon Live View: The image is not rotated according to camera orientation, as Canon does not report the orientation during Live View.
  • Olympus OM-D E-M5 II “High Resolution” mode is not supported.

Digital Back users

  • Battery charging on IQ systems can cause issues with stability over Thunderbolt adapters or in low power devices such as Laptops. Switch charging off if you suffer repeated disconnections.
  • For tethered shooting with Phase One digital backs make sure that your system can either supply at least 10W power via Firewire (more than most laptops can supply) or make sure to activate the “Force Battery” setting on the back. Use the 4.5m Phase One Firewire cable.
  • For tethered shooting with Leaf and Mamiya DM digital backs make sure that your system can supply at least 12W power via Firewire (more than most laptops can supply). Use a Leaf or Mamiya Firewire cable.
  • Unless otherwise specified for your Phase One camera system, do not open the shutter on the camera prior to opening the Live View window. Doing so will generate errors on the digital back after closing the Live View window. The recommended procedure for using Live View is to first open the Live View window, then open the shutter on the camera, use Live View as desired, when done, close the shutter on the camera, and close the Live View window.
  • For Leaf Backs and Mamiya DM systems, the camera body must be selected in preferences before connecting the back.
  • For Leaf Backs and Mamiya DM systems, in the case of a communication error during firmware upload, please wait 10 minutes before disconnecting the FireWire cable.
  • Leaf Aptus II 8 only works with black and white Live View.
  • Focus controls for iXR and iXA cameras are only supported by IQ and Credo backs.
