« on: September 29, 2018, 09:46:11 AM »

Does someone know when C1 Pro will support the Z7?

Thanks.

Cheers,
Bernard

Since I have received my Z7 I am anxious to process RAWs.  I have made an inquiry on RAW support to my contacts at Phase One and will let you know what I hear.

Exactly my question - Capture NX-D is really awful. I can't remember it (or its predecessor) being that bad?

Probably that they do not give details or release dates of forthcoming products.

Maybe for you, though  under an NDA,  but not for the general public, as such.

Of course, Phase One could change their policy as they did with supporting a medium format camera with the Fujifilm camera.

I think that there will be some healthy cashflow from the Fuji deal!

I don't think they would be reluctant to release information about plans for a routine update to support a new camera. In fact one of the things that started the rot with Aperture, for me, was the slow pace of camera support updates, so there is a price to pay for users losing confidence in software support.

Anyway, this is a bit apocalyptic - it's only been out for a day :-)

Well - turns out I was wrong and after I queried PhaseOne they replied that they don't comment on development plans. That's their prerogative of course. Likewise the customer's prerogative to not buy software once they lose confidence in its future.

They are usually pretty quick (weeks) in supporting cameras they see as main stream professional/semi-professional cameras.  But equally, they are consistent in sticking with the no comment approach on when support will be available. Over the years I have used C1 I have seen them explain a couple of times about how long it takes them both in the lab and from field testing to develop support for a new camera (apparently 700 to 800 images are taken across a range of different subjects, and with several people involved) and that they won't start the process until they get a production camera in their hands.

Phase one you can trust will release a version for the Canon and Nikon and usually they do it after they have received a camera in hand.  You can always request to be put on their beta program to get an early release.

No but a new year is approaching and that's a convenient time to  start a new catalogue with a new software.

I expect the Z7 support will arrive around 30 November / 1 December. Why?
- Rel. 10 was released at 1 December 2016.
- Rel. 11 was released at 30 November 2017.

So it seems C1 has a pretty predictable release moment. With this I don’t expect any changes anymore on rel. 11 as C1 is internally fully focused in bringing out rel. 12. One even might expect rel. 12 pre-releases are already out there in the field…

Regards,
Jaap.

If that is the case I sure hope that they will have implemented a software fix for the rare banding cases by then. ;)

In my experience, Phase One doesn't wait months to add camera support until a new upgrade is released. Camera support is part of the regular update path, and the delay is more likely caused by late availability of a camera to profile and them now having to allocate resources for the new version.

We'll see what transpires.

You could find out if there is a new beta and what it supports by joining the beta programme.

Supposing that PhaseOne are mostly concentrating on an upcoming (December??) version upgrade (as per previous years' schedule), I am wondering if it is realistic to expect Z7 support before v12 is out?

Happy to be proved wrong - the Lightroom UI is driving me bonkers!

Come on PhaseOne, get a move on. As good as the Z7 JPG's are I still want the NEF capability please.

Indeed, it's taking quite a while, but also make sure that Phase One can prioritize their activities by filing an official feature request:
FOR FEATURE REQUESTS AND BUG REPORTS, FILE A SUPPORT CASE AT https://www.phaseone.com/SupportMain.aspx

Hope they get it done soon.
