It's just software. Fuji, Hasselblad, Adobe or some other payer will catch up, it's just a matter of time.

I can't predict the future, but the phrase "It's just software" belies the cost and difficulty of creating, maintaining, and improving software. It also underplays how specific and niche the target market is for Capture One vs broader prosumer-majority software like LightRoom. The target market strongly influences the features, resource allocation, and prioritization decisions of your software team.

Just look at Apple; they have fantastic developers and practically unlimited resources, and as they pivoted to a more consumer-oriented rather than professional-oriented company their Aperture software languished and then was discontinued altogether.

Phase One is laser-focused on performance-oriented high-end users and consider tethering a core function rather than a feature.

Can someone else compete with them in this area? Absolutely. The future is an unknown country and many things that come to be were hard to see in advance, and Phase One does not have exclusive access to talented programmers or money to invest. But as of now, no one is bothering to try, and it would be a steep uphill if they did.

A number of years ago I had a great camera bag that would hold a FF camera with lens plus one additional lens, plus a bit of space for batteries, filters, etc. It strapped to your chest with one strap over a shoulder and another around your torso. I recall it being made by Cotton Carrier but there's nothing like it on their web site. Does anyone know what I am talking about?

Wow, Doug, for the amount of Shilling you do for Phase One in completely unrelated posts, you would make a great Phase One salesman.

Give me a break.

I know Phase One. I don’t know Hasselblad. I know such a mechanism does exist for Phase One and assume-but-do-not-know it exists for Hasselblad as well.

I could have said “report this to Hasselblad so they can note it’s stolen in their system” but if it turns out there is not such a procedure at Hasselblad then that advice would be confusing and misleading. If Hassy reps frequented this forum with regularity then I would leave it to them (if you have a friend at Hassy I encourage you to have them participate on a more ongoing basis), but having seen no post to this point made on the thread I thought it was practical and actionable advice, and I thought the context behind why I was suggesting it was helpful.

If someone (the OP, someone from Hassy, another user who has done so) confirms that Hassy has such a registry and explains their preferred procedure (talk to a specific department? talk to your dealer? email a specific address? go to a specific URL?), then in the future I will gladly note that procedure without mentioning any other camera companies, because then it wouldn't provide any context.

My concern is for the guy who lost his camera.

Just returned from the David Goldblatt Peter Magubane exhition in Johannesburg. Really he was a formidable photographer. I found the work of both photographers to be very powerful.

Couldn’t help comparing the experience to my visit to the Johannesburg Art Gallery last week to look at the work of Wolfgang Tillmans. I really struggled to understand and come to terms with that work.

I'm very sorry to hear this.

Make sure to report your lost equipment through your Hasselblad dealer.

When any of our clients have had Phase One gear stolen we've registered it in the service system as stolen, so if anyone ever calls or emails about that equipment (for service, support, to ask about warranty) it shows the tech that it is stolen. I assume Hasselblad has a similar capability.

Well the iconic location again and this time in late October 2017. Very different from May not only the crop but especially the light is so different at that time of year. Even then there is a fight for the tripod holes ;) :)

Realy interesting!
With my Nikon (D850 now but before D810) I used almost in the 90% of cases the Camera Standard profile, probably because due to the better shadow recover capability (compared to my previous Canon gear) I use to shoot more underexposed in order not to have highlights issues, and the Camera Standard profile performs really great in colors and contrast.
Honestly, I miss my old Canon sensor in terms of colors, and I'd love to test it again with the Adobe Color profile.
Never used the Landscape profile (neither Adobe nor Camera) as I think it's a bit too much in saturation and contrast

The D850 is pretty similar in color to the Canon 5DSR. The camera standard profile for the Nikon is not the same as the Canon. They are emulations of the camera vendor profile. You should try the adobe landscape as it it really different from the camera vendor landscape profiles as I said. Saturation and contrast is influenced by the black and white point so if you adjust to one profile and change then you may need to adjust the black and white point. Most of my landscapes are now tnow with the Adobe landscape profile and adjusted for that.
