Capture One 9.1 released

Capture One 9.1 released

Phase one has just release Capture One 9.1. The new release includes a number of new features as well as support for some new cameras. Notably absent though is support for the Fuji XPro2.

A word of warning. I've installed the update and I've had serious stability issues immediately after upgrading, so proceed with caution. I'm still trying to come up with a solution. It crashes every time I try to change to the library tab. If could be something in my library, because I can open with a blank library fine, but be careful if you're upgrading. I've contacted technical support to see if they have a solution.

According to the release notes here's what's new:


  • Under the hood Library refactor (Mac)
  • Canon PTP tethering engine
  • Refactored Next Capture Adjustments for Orientation
