Why I love Capture One
"I use Capture One to process my RAW files. It not only serves as a necessary base before retouching, but it is also the industry standard. The flexibility the program allows gives me the utmost control in pushing and pulling colors in ways I just can't attain in any other program. It's not just the advanced tools included within the program, but the way the colors are rendered without doing anything else makes it the go-to processing program for ensuring you are getting the most out of your images. It makes the RAW files I work with sing! And this is not to mention the unrivaled speed the program has. I could truly go on forever."
