Premium photo editing software Capture One 21 Pro now enables tethered shooting with the Leica S3 and the Leica SL2
Leica Camera AG has entered into a cooperation with Capture One. As a result, the Danish image processing specialist’s new software, Capture One 21 Pro, now supports the Leica S3 and the Leica SL2. This allows photographers to tether their camera to a computer by cable. The advantage of shooting tethered is that images can be imported straight into the software and the camera can be operated via the computer – giving owners of the Leica S3 or SL2 access to the high-performance editing workflow of Capture One 21 Pro.
The collaboration between Leica Camera AG and Capture One has resulted in profiles that are precisely calibrated to each camera. This ensures optimal image quality, enabling Capture One Pro 21 to utilise the respective Leica camera’s full potential. The software offers advantages such as a powerful Colour Editor tool, as well as a straightforward user interface that can easily be adapted to the photographer’s requirements. The new version of Capture One 21 Pro includes improved import options, simple Brush tool settings, as well as the new Pro Standard colour profiles, which prevent colour shifts when making changes to the contrast.
On December 10th, Capture One will release an update to support the Leica S (Typ 007) and SL (Typ 601). Live View support for Leica cameras will be added in 2021. Leica S (Typ 007) will have preliminary Generic DNG profile support - full Capture One native support will be added in 2021.
