Is The Foveon Sensor Still Relevant?

There is a group of photographers who remain dedicated to using cameras with a Foveon sensor.  In this time of evolving full-frame cameras with new features that increase the automation of “capturing an image” perhaps it is useful to very briefly review...

    Image appearance in Capture One not matching appearance in PS
    on: January 17, 2020 at 6:53 pm

    Thanks Mike.

    I was aware of the differences between Edit With and Open With.

    The interesting fact is that in the process recipes, as you know, there is only the option to Open With….and if one has the other parameters set as one desires, the file will open in PS and not in either LR or ACR.

    After corresponding with Kevin my sense is that there is, despite the excellent tutorials available, continuing confusion concerning both the best way to import files into sessions ( more specifically, the best way to organize the folders ) and the delineation of process recipes.  Perhaps when time allows, a presentation on PXL will be forthcoming.

    Kevin was generous enough to review my work flow in depth including the correct way to place imported images into the appropriate sessions folders.  I reviewed all of the options in the process recipe and reset those that were possibly askew.

     

    Bottom line:  Problem solved!  Images in PS match those in Capture One perfectly.  No problem with the software, but problems with the operator!

     

    Thanks Kevin.

    John:  Thanks for responding.  As Kevin noted, I believe I figured “it out”.  However, I am still interested in why Capture One provides the “Edit with” option. When would on consider using that method of moving an image to another editor?

    If one reads information about process recipes and watches the C1 tutorial on the subject, it is immediately apparent how powerful “process recipes” is and how many ways this part of the program can be used.

    On another subject:  Kevin has certainly provided a platform that allows many of us to access information driven by experience and informed by necessity!  Thanks Kevin!

    I went back and very carefully reviewed my work flow Kevin.  I then consulted the Capture One 20 Tutorials.

    I created a process recipe with the criteria desired, and when I exported to PS the on screen appearances matched perfectly!  So, what was the problem previously?

    As you of course know, there are at least two ways to export to Photoshop.

    In previous instances I had bypassed the process recipes and simply used Image>Edit With>Adobe Photoshop>etc, etc. NO match.

    Once the process recipe was correctly created, the Image>Edit With>Adobe Photoshop worked perfectly…perfect match.

    I wonder if somehow the two image exporting methods are linked Kevin and that one should set the parameters via the output tab before using the Image>Edit With> etc. method.

    Incidentally, is there a reason that the px/in defaults to 300?

    Thanks for helping Kevin.  Perhaps Drew will have an explanation.

    Since installing Capture One 20 I have noticed a disturbing mismatch between the images as they appear in Capture One and as they appear in Photoshop.  I have checked the default editing choices in PS and they appear to be correct.  I have experimented a bit, and regardless of what profile I use to edit the profile in Capture One, when the file is exported to PS using the same ICC profile and opened in PS using the same ICC profile the image as such appears in Capture One is a bit darker and more saturated than the identical image as opened in PS after transfer.  Needless to say the mismatch is disturbing.

    Has anyone else noted the same phenomenon?  Any suggestions as to how to rectify the situation.  I mailed Capture One Support about a week ago and thus far they have not felt the need to respond…very disappointing.

    I much appreciate the help.  Perhaps there is a way to reach Drew or someone else at Phase One directly.
