The Best and Worst Thing about Capture 10

A month into using Capture 9, just upgraded to 10, and committed to not going back to Lightroom, here’s what I dig the most…it’s the flow.

Then the color control.

Sigma: The wait is over. Shop e-mount primes.

I just spin that dial thing right round, looking for the right mood.

Top 5 Worst Things

  1. Healing—watched the video, still have no “muscle memory” on how it works, getting better at it.
  2. Dehazing— sure do find the dehazing tool in Lightroom effective, Capture 10 doesn’t offer it.
  3. Camera profiles- the provided cameras profiles are generic and not specific like Lightroom
  4. Sometimes slow…10 seems to address the hangs on 9 on import of a large amount of files
  5. ….

I haven’t found a 5th thing yet…. Lightroom uses in camera profiles while Capture One has you make profiles; no doubt, making your own profiles is better in the long run, but again my switch to Capture One is all about saving time in post and having a much better workflow.

My daily shooter is Sony a9 with a vertical grip and various Sigma lenses attached like the 14mm 1.4 Art. Find more gear recommendations in our shop.
