Capture One is a photography software suite. It includes custom support for RAW files from over 650 cameras and tethering support (remote camera control via USB, network cable or Wifi) for over 200 cameras.[1] Originally produced by camera maker Phase One, the software department was split off into its own company, called Capture One A/S, in 2019. Both companies are majority-owned by the private equity firm Axcel.

In 2022, Capture One released its iPad app with key tools to edit on the go and Capture One Live,[2] a cloud-based collaboration platform for getting feedback in real-time. In 2023, Capture One was also released for iPhone, compatible with iOS 15 and newer[3]
