Press Release

Phase One Releases Capture One 5.1   
Powerful New Image Editing Tools and a Value-Packed Basic Version

COPENHAGEN, February 22, 2010— Phase One today released Capture One 5.1, the powerful raw conversion, workflow and image editing application. The basic version now features both a simplified workspace and ‘pro’ image-editing options; Capture One 5.1 PRO comes with new tools for advanced noise reduction and image editing efficiency.   

Free to existing Capture One 5.x/5.x PRO owners, this value-packed service release extends raw image support to Nikon D3s, Canon 1D Mark IV, Sony A500, Sony A550 and a wide range of Leaf digital backs – this, in addition to its support for more than 170 different raw file formats (and growing).

“Capture One is built on the industry’s best raw conversion engine,” said Carsten H. Olsen, Phase One product manager for Capture One,” and our goal is to deliver the best quality image results with the most responsive application performance on the planet.”

Capture One 5.1 basic version delivers more value, with:
--Added “pro” features such as a basic color editor for selective color adjustment, possibility to add keywords and image information, as well as the clarity tool which is ideal for optimizing portrait images;
--Easier start-up for new users;
--A new simplified workspace with just the tools needed to create ready-to-use images with a few clicks.

According to photographer Jens Honoré, “With more pro cameras producing high-quality raw files, the choice of raw converter is key to image quality.”

Capture One 5.1 PRO adds the following powerful image-editing tools:
--One-click spot removal: the fastest and most efficient way to remove imperfections in images;
--Advanced Noise reduction: to enhance the quality of high ISO images;  
--Negative Clarity: to smooth the surface on portrait images;
--Inverted Color Editor Selection: to create a nearly monochromatic image and emphasize one or more colors;
--Improved metadata functionality;
--Handle large volume shoots even faster with new and enhanced workflow accelerators.
