If someone says that brand X is better than Brand Y for fashion for instance, we would like to hear his/ her opinion about capture speed, skin tone rendition, high iso performance and his/ her chosen workflow in the brand's own software and/ or 3rd party apps.
If we're talking about another environment, such as architecture, then we'd like to hear about sharpness (not sharpening), DR and dealing with artefacts such as colour casts and vignetting and how these corrections are implemented into the workflow i.e can the files after corrections be processed in the back's own software etc. Which is what you have done but that was quite a while ago and things have moved a bit since then.
that lc11 is out and people seems to be content with it has nothing to do with the advantages i am claiming in favour of the emotion backs and its faster ( and i.m.o. better ) workflow.
i know where is the actual "state of the art" of the aptus75 backs, your gain adjuster and lc11.
btw,- aside tethered shooting - i cannot see much sense that every maker tries to invent the wheel again in spending lots of money to write its own software.
i would understand that, if the file quality would be higher than in third party sw,- but this seems not to be the case as far i can see,- although of course everybody is free to like one sw more than another and lc11 seems to be successfull and most people who use it, like it.
i am not comparing lc11 and capture shop because both are not interesting me.
i dont like the camera-makers software , neither from sinar, nor from leaf, nor from hasselblad/ imacon. i am tempted to make an exception here for phase, mainly because it is an "open" software and supports many 35mm cameras as well as the phase backs.
i compare sinar + leaf here in terms of workspeed, workflow, quality and issues ( CF ),- if white references have to be taken and applied to various files, as it should be done with architecture systems, as long shift lenses are used.
i cannot see how this changed with lc11 in a way that you could reach in practical environments even the half of the speed you can get with the sinar/brumbaer workflow.
again: i am not talking abut lc11or cs. i am comparing ALL software workflows which are available for these two backs,- in case of sinar i speak about brumbaer tools not about captureshop.
did you try it out with - lets say 20 files with different white files? do it and measure the time instead of claiming that "others" dont know what about they write.
