Phase One has released Capture One 4.1 for Mac and Windows, an update to its RAW conversion and image editing application for digital SLRs and medium format digital cameras and backs. The new version adds the ability to process RAW files shot with the Canon EOS Rebel XSi/450D, Nikon D60, Mamiya ZD and ZD back as well as several Pentax and Sony models. It also introduces a watch folder feature and new lens correction and tethering functionality.

Excerpts from the release notes further describe the changes:

Capture One 4.1 includes a number of new features, some of which will be introduced below:

  • Tethered shooting (excluding Live Preview) is now available for Phase One digital backs. For specific features and operation please refer to the User Guide.
  • The Hot Folder feature allows users to capture images with 3rd party applications and have supported RAW files appear automatically in Capture One

Solved issues
Below you will find a list of issues which have been solved with this release of Capture One 4.1.

General:
- The sort order criteria set was not applied when relaunching
- Removing rating from a rated image gave a zero rating, rather than clearing the rating
- Exif data was missing on some file types.
- High ISO images from Fuji S5 Pro showed inconsistent exposures compared to camera previews
- It was not possible to activate the software without entering a first and last name in the user's profile
- Capture One failed to save file settings for RAW files which had exif or IPTC information edited by 3rd party applications
- Tool tips have been added for fields with long information strings

Mac:
- License manager: A misleading message was shown when trying to activate “one-key- one-profile” type license codes with a wrong user profile

Windows:
- Importer: In certain conditions the Importer only appeared once.
– Toggling the Browser between list- and grid-mode when loading a collection caused the application to crash

Capture One 4.1 is a free update for licensed users of 4.x. A trial version is available.
