Updated: Capture One adds RAW support for Fujifilm GFX 50S

Phase One A/S, the developers of Capture One RAW software, have today announced Capture One Express for Fujifilm. This pared-down Express version of Capture One provides support of RAW files from an extensive range of Fujifilm T- and GFX-series cameras, including the medium format Fujifilm GFX 50S and the recently announced GFX 50R. A similar version exists for Capture One Express for Sony, which supports RAW files from Sony cameras.

The company has also announced an upgrade to the fully-featured version of Capture One Pro to version 11.3, which besides adding support for the new Phase One IQ4 150 digital back also includes the same expanded support for Fujifilm RAW files, and adds support for tethering with the Fujifilm GFX 50S. At this time only basic tethered support is offered for the GFX-50S, though full support is promised in a future Capture One Pro release.

Capture One Pro version 11.3 also adds support for the recently announced Phase One IQ4 Styles. With the introduction of the IQ4 digital back, Phase One not only added support for out-of-camera JPEGs but also Capture One Styles. When these tagged RAW files are imported into Capture One Pro, the resulting images can be displayed with the Style applied automatically. Like any other RAW files these images can be edited further or the adjustment settings removed.

Existing users of Capture One Pro 11 can upgrade free-of-charge through the application as usual.

New users to Capture One tempted by the extended support for the Fujifilm GFX cameras can download the new Capture One Express for Fujifilm version free-of-charge from Phase One’s Capture One site. You’ll have to download the full version as a 30-day trial, and then select the Express for Fujifilm from the opening dialog.

 

Readers of this site purchasing a perpetual license for Capture One Pro or an upgrade from a full version (e.g. version 9 or 10), will receive a 10% discount when entering the promo code AMBCARTER at checkout from the Phase One Online store. From today, when purchasing prepaid subscriptions will receive a 5% discount (on the first year). Sales from these links may benefit this site.

 

Press release:

COPENHAGEN, Sep. 25, 2018 – Phase One A/S, the world’s leading manufacturer of full frame medium format digital photography systems and imaging solutions today announced a strategic software agreement with Fujifilm.

Under terms of this agreement, Phase One and Fujifilm are collaborating to broaden and deepen Capture One software support of more Fujifilm cameras. With the release of Capture One 11.3 (see today’s announcement) Capture One has significantly expanded its Fujifilm camera support, with full Fujifilm RAW file and basic tethered support for select cameras. Future development will integrate Fujifilm Film Simulations with Capture One and provide enhanced tethered support for select professional Fujifilm cameras.

Capture One is today considered the professionals’ choice in image editing software. With native support for more than 500 camera models, it offers fast and powerful RAW conversion, image editing and asset management. Fujifilm has a distinguished history of engineering innovative color reproduction in its range of cameras. Thus, the collaboration between Fujifilm and Phase One is a natural development – based upon shared values such as the commitment to color fidelity to achieve the highest image quality.

“Phase One has designed Capture One both to inspire photographers and to ensure the best workflow and user experience,” said Jan Hyldebrandt-Larsen, VP Software Business at Phase One. “We are proud to be working to share with Fujifilm shooters the opportunity to benefit from Capture One’s highly responsive processing engine, unmatched color handling, precision-editing tools, and seamless tethered support.”

Fujifilm Film Simulations

“Film Simulations” – one of the key features of the newest X/GFX camera – represent the color and tonality of various photographic films in a digital capture. Currently the camera has 16 modes available that suit various scenes and subjects. For example, “Provia”, ”Velvia” and ”Astia” reproduce iconic Fujifilm color reversal films; “Classic Chrome” conveys the iconic look and feel of Photographic Magazines from the 1950’s; “PRO Neg.Std” and ”PRO Neg.Hi” reproduce Professional Negative Film used in Portrait Studios; and Black and White “ACROS” reproduces smooth tonality, with a higher D-Max and rich texture.
