Mastin Labs announces Support for Capture One with new Style Pack

Mastin Labs, which is a popular creator of Lightroom Presets has announced a new style pack for Capture One bringing their Kodak film emulation presets to Phase One’s software. Here’s what the press release says:


For the first time, Capture One users will be able to enjoy the richness, character, and timelessness of real film photography that Mastin Labs delivers through its beautifully faithful film styles. “I’m so happy to collaborate with Capture One, and excited to bring everything loved about Mastin Labs to this uniquely powerful platform,” said Kirk Mastin. The collaboration will marry the power and precision of Capture One with the timeless quality and simplicity of Mastin’s film packs, and launches with Mastin’s most popular and versatile film pack ever, the Kodak Everyday Original styles pack.

Mastin Labs Kodak Everyday Styles Pack is ideal for weddings, landscapes, road trips off the beaten path, authentic moments with your friends, and anywhere life takes you on your everyday journey.

The Kodak Everyday Original style pack features three iconic films:

Kodak Tri-X 400

Prized by photojournalists for its versatility and sophistication, Tri-X 400 is a B&W film that has captured some of the most important moments in history.

These styles provide photographers, professional and enthusiast alike, with the genuine looks of all three seminal film stocks, and with their release Mastin Labs film looks become the only high-end film emulations to span all three major platforms.

Unique to the Capture One platform, Mastin Styles Packs come with an optional custom workspace, to make for a uniquely dedicated and fluid workflow.


Mastin Labs Kodak Everyday Styles Pack for Capture One is available now in the Mastin Labs e-store for $99

They sent me a copy to test and I’ll have a full review soon. My initial reactions are that they are pretty accurate, but they seem expensive given what’s in the pack. Then again, maybe I’m just way too cheap with my styles! Either way, I hope this is the start of more creative options being available for Capture One. I know the Lightroom versions of these are talked about a lot by people and are highly regarded, and these seem pretty accurate, at least in my initial testing.

I’ll have more on these soon, with some proper testing and a demo video. For now, if you’re a Capture One user, check them out on their website.
