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 →
