Capture One 20.1 gets a Branding Makeover!

18 May 2020

You'd be forgiven for thinking that the latest Capture One 20.1 was a major release, as it has been released with more pomp and ceremony than was afforded to Capture One 20.

Let's start with the elephant in the room, the New Capture One makeover has given the brand it's own unique identity. The old Capture One design was in keeping with the look and feel of the parent company Phase One. But this was the problem, whenever people mentioned Capture One, they immediately thought of expensive medium format cameras. 

But over the past couple of years, Phase One have made new alliances with other camera manufacturers, releasing camera brand specific version at reduced prices. The first version was for Sony users, followed soon after by a version for Fujifilm owners, and today they announced as part of the big release a version specifically for Nikon users.
It must be only a matter of time before a Canon version makes an appearance and then Capture One will have the Big 4. So now the name Capture One Pro is as synonymous with photo editing as Adobe Lightroom.

Whatever you think of the new branding it is a bold move and at this time, gives Capture One something to shout about.
