Capture One Unveils the New Version of Its Photo Editing Software

Capture One has announced Capture One 22, which the company claims brings improved performance, support for the latest cameras, panoramic photo stitching, and HDR merging. The latest major release adds new photo editing features, including Capture One’s first AI tool, improved camera and lens support, and wireless camera tethering.

“I’m thrilled to announce the launch of Capture One 22. Capture One 22 is the culmination of months of technological innovation. Guided by our deep understanding of photography workflows, Capture One 22 boasts even more powerful editing tools, from Panorama Stitching to HDR Merging to Wireless Tethering to our first AI feature, Auto Rotate—all equipped to serve the needs of photographers worldwide,” said Rafael Orta, Capture One’s CEO.

The update introduces some highly requested features, such as Panorama Stitching and HDR Merging. For these features, users can only use RAW files and the output image cannot exceed 715 megapixels. However, the built-in scaling option in Panorama Stitching will help achieve this and the actual limit of files is largely dependent on hardware. By adding Panorama Stitching and HDR Merging to Capture One 22, the team has further reduced the need for users to open other applications, such as Adobe Photoshop, or some other dedicated stitching or merging software solution.

Capture One 22 has also added Wireless Tethering for selected Canon cameras, such as Canon R5 and R3, and Auto Rotate which is the company’s first AI feature. Canon R3 is also one of the newly added cameras supported in the software, alongside Sony Alpha 7 IV, the Nikon Z9, and several Canon lenses. The new cameras also come with an added ProStandard color profile. For any older unsupported camera profiles, the company notes that if there are enough requests for a given camera, it will consider adding it.

For Windows users, Capture One 22 promises improved Catalog performance. It is now faster to browse, filter, and search albums and folders.

Capture One Live is a new service, which is still in beta testing, that will allow photographers to instantly share photos in real-time or share previously captured photos with others for viewing and rating on a web browser. The service should make for easier, simpler collaboration.

Existing Capture One users can download the new version at no extra cost, while license upgrades start at $199 and new users can purchase the software for $299. Subscriptions start at $24/month. Capture One 22 is also available in brand-specific versions for Nikon, Sony, and Fujifilm. These are $199 for perpetual licenses, $149 to upgrade, and plans start at $19/month.
