Capture One ( Also known as Capture One Pro or C1Pro by users) is a professional raw converter and image editing software developed by Phase One. It is designed for professional photographers who need to process large volumes of high quality images in a fast and efficient workflow. Capture One makes it possible to perform adjustments on a vast number of native camera RAW file formats as well as TIFF and JPEG image files. Capture One is one of the pioneer software programs used for tethered shooting which is very useful especially for studio photographers.[1] Users include fashion, portrait and wedding photographers; product, landscape and architectural photographers; fine art, food and art reproduction photographers as well as amateur photographers who want to achieve the same image quality as the professional photographers.

For owners of Digital camera backs from Phase One, Mamiya and Leaf the software is free and called Capture One 7 DB. The previous Version is still available with reduced functionality, labeled Capture One 6 Express. Capture One 7 is localized for Chinese (simplified), Czech, English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Spanish and Swedish. Features include:[2] Local adjustments, Keystone correction, Black and White conversion, Ability to print directly from Capture One, Profoto Studio plug-in, Profoto capture and lighting integration, and extension to iPad and iPod with Capture Pilot.[3][4] Among other key features are noise reduction, color correction, spot removal, HDR tools, lens tools and sharpening tools.
