can you explain what this means Doug?
I have C1 on my main workstation, and high end (big) laptop, but also am thinking of putting it on a Netbook for checking stitch, focus, etc on light locations. Afaik, I had to put in a licence code for this 3rd installation, but... do you mean to say I can download a trial copy of C1 4.x and not register it if I work tethered, or what?
As mentioned above you just select "Run in Digital Back Only Mode" when the program asks you to register/activate. You can see dSLR files, but you can only tether to, and make changes to raw files from, Phase One digital backs.
Doug, your right, I should have mentioned the DB only is free, though small computer . . . large computer few photographers are going to go out and shoot without some backup and usually the medium format backup is a Canon.
At that stage if you ever do need to tether or just view our canon/nikon files in v4, to the netbook, or any other new computer, a new license or activation is required.
Since I have multiple computers, early on I tried just loading the DB version (this was in version 3 days) and it just gets too confusing so I bought an extra license.
True enough. Though if the point is just to download/check images in the field and not really "work them up" then you can use Canon/Nikon's native software (free for their users).
I agree that things were pretty confusing in this regard for Capture One "DB". Now there are no licenses/codes/activation/registration, you just say "Run in Digital Back Only mode" when it asks you to activate.
