I actually like pretty much Phocus.
The possibility to launch it from the beginning full or simplify for example shows that Hasselblad is listening to the photographers.
The only real criticsm I have about Phocus is it's Mac dependence, because the windows version does not have the third-party files available.
I know, I know... 90% (or more) photography is Mac, but it's changing a bit since windows 7. edit: and I've noticed that it's specially changing faster with the laptops.
David, if you see that post, is Hasselblad planning to implement the third party files on the window's version Phocus in the future?
But it's a nice peice of program. Younger than C1 but yet very good.
Honestly, I don't see huge differences with Capture One. They are just about the same. If you know well one or the other, it will take you very little to switch.
If you see that the gap is huge with capture, please I'd really like to know where and why? I run both now and like them both. Maybe exactly like comparing both cameras from the 2 brands. In the end, 10 buttons that do exactly the same thing for one century and nothing more than subtles differences. As we have to end in PS most of the time, those develloppers don't have, and hope they won't, to be the big artillery.
I prefer a very good and simple devellopper than a bad complex and integrated software that will try to by-pass the PS step (lightroom? he he...Michael won't read this one
) but in the end you probably end in Ps, so...
If you can make it with Phocus, you will make it with C1 and vice-versa.
Phocus is perfectly suitable for pros. IMO.
