Capture One has announced Capture One 22 (15.3.0). The new update is available now and includes many new features and improved performance.
In March, Capture One shared its roadmap for 2022, and promised improvements to its software’s efficiency, flexibility and mobility. Some of these promises are fulfilled in version 15.3.0.
‘In March, for the first time, we as a company shared our vision for Capture One as a multi- platform ecosystem for creatives, and laid out our roadmap for getting there; it was a product of listening to our users and being ambitious for them and the community,’ said Rafael Orta, CEO, Capture One. ‘It began with Capture One Live, and now we are moving into Capture One for iPad, with this release being a critical step into the future we are building. It’s always rewarding to see the marks of progress, but I’d be remiss not to mention it’s also an exciting time.’

With wireless tethering on Sony, Capture One 22 (15.3.0) supports wireless tethering and delivers ‘identical’ functionality to USB tethering. Supported cameras include the Sony a7R IV, a1, a7 IV, a7S III, a7C, FX3, ZV-E10 and a9 II.
When tethered with Canon cameras, you can control where to save your images. You can save to card, computer or both.
The new Magic Eraser offers similar functionality as the Magic Brush. You can use it to remove parts of masks on similar areas, including sky and skin. The Magic Eraser is available from the Layers Tool and Cursor Tools. You can link the Magic Eraser to the Magic Brush if needed.
The redesigned Tool Panel is ‘easier and more predictable,’ including bigger icons, labels (which can be turned off), rearranged tools, and customization options.
Cloud Transfer allows you to import into Capture One Pro images that are on the cloud on the iPad app, which is not yet available. The iPad app will be available on June 28.
There’s also new camera and lens support, including support for the Canon M50 II and the Canon R5C. New Canon RF lenses are supported now, including the RF 24-120mm F4-6.3 IS USM, RF 100-500mm F4.5-7.1 L IS USM, RF 800mm F5.6 L IS USM and Canon RF 1200mm F8 L IS USM.
Capture One 22 is available as a perpetual license for $299 or as part of a subscription plan starting at $20 per month. For additional information, visit Capture One.
