Phase One sent out thir latest BETA release of Capture One Pro V.5.x.x to BETA testers this morning.
More so than any other time in the last 6 years that I've been using Capture One Pro, Phase One appears to be putting more effort in to the development of Capture One Pro then ever before.
The most obvious reason being their assimilation of Leaf digital nearly a year ago. With the pace of development I would not be surprised to see a version of Capture One Pro V.5.x.x that is able to handle all aspects
of the Leaf Aptus backs by spring time or late summer at the latest.
Also expect to see greater connectivity for all cameras systems,including those not officialy realesed yet. Greater parity for Mac and PC users.
