    The NEW Capture One 21 was just released. There are a lot of new features but the major new feature that almost justifies the price of admission is the Dehaze Tool. There are a number of other features that I cover in my article with accompanying video.

    From viewing comments here (on the other C1-21 thread) and on other sites, the ProStandard profiles are under-appreciated.  The fact that they are rolling these out for various cameras slowly indicates to me that a lot more work goes into creating these profiles – more than just clicking a button on X-Rite or Lumariver software.  It appears C1 is doing us a significant service here.

    Still no history palette, though. Boo.

    John,  First, all the profiles previous to the ProStandard ones were very good.  The Pro – profiles are bringing certain colors in line from where they were.  Like I tried to illustrate in my video blue is one of the colors you can see this most.  Red and blue in some instances on almost all cameras and especially the Sony sensors didn’t have full separation in the curves.  Therefore sometimes the blue in skies for example tended to feel a bit purple.  Thse differences have been corrected with the Pro profiles.  This also goes for other colors and the subtlies might not be notices.  But there is a difference. 

    The big feature Dehaze is amazing.  Even more so than in LR.  I’m sure that C1 will add continual improvements over the next year.  I know they have a big team and they are working on a lot of things, hopefully some will be big surprises.

    They have a new ProStandard profile for the camera I am using, Sony A7RM4.

    Using the lab readouts to do a comparison I am also finding a reduction in magenta  ( but not for images with magenta ) and a slight increase in yellow.

    I wonder with the introduction of speed edits this is a way of trialling for Kevin’s   ” big surprise ”   a tablet version of C1  ?

    Negative dehaze is good for enhancing fog / mist or for steam from steam trains especially as it can be used on a layer and brushed in.

    One has to rember that v20 had some excellent new features in 20.1 so maybe 21.1 sometime in mid-year will also have something ?

    We shall see! Improvements to DAM, adding history, being able to view/combine images in subfolders and all those other background things aren’t very glamorous but they are vital to working with a well-rounded program. When Lr debuted in 2007, it was the first software of its kind to be database-centric and that’s still vital. As I tell beginner photographers, it doesn’t matter if you have 500 images of 50K images. How easy is it for you to find the one image you’re looking for?

    I looked it up in Wikipedia – Apple Aperture was released in 2005, but Lr didn’t come out until 2007 (as you say).
