Phase One has released Capture One Pro 9 with more powerful new features that continue to push Lightroom.
As you can see in the video above, the new contrast algorithm allows you to adjust contrast and brightness without affecting the color of your image. You also have the ability to create masks for local adjustments in a variety of ways, including color selections. The asset management tools also get a big update with new keywording options.[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-TK63TpZSa4&w=700&rel=0]
Capture One Pro 9 retails for $299 and is available direct from the Phase One store. If you’re upgrading from Capture One Pro 7 or 8, the cost is $99. There is also a subscription option at $15/mo. You can learn more here on Phase One’s website.
All those features, and it’s FASTER than Lightroom, too!

Switched to COP7 from Lightroom two years ago, and it’s the best decision i ever made. It’s way faster, precise, perfect in reading Nikons NEF (which was the reason i jumped ship in the first place), and produces much more natural looking skin tones and mid tones than LR. I would recommend it to everyone!
