Capture One Pro by Phase One is my image editor of choice, I really wouldn't feel comfortable sending you guys anywhere else. With a user interface that is completely customisable, housing the most extensive and intuitive set of image adjustment tools available on the RAW developer market, this program moulds to YOUR vision, not the other way around..
When it comes to the brands my business represents I have a rule; I will only promote it if I use it, and my experience with Phase One products so far has been nothing short of revolutionary in the way I approach production. Capture One Pro is designed to house the worlds best photography, produced by the worlds best photographers; you just don't spend countless hours and dollars creating premium imagery only to throw it into a sub-par editor.
Capture One files look better from the get-go, it's as simple as that.
I feel like the biggest benefit in joining the Phase One community so far has been the people; these guys care. With a library of knowledge published through the consistently updated webinars and blog articles, the transition to Capture One Pro was pretty much seamless and absolutely beneficial for my image quality.
To see for yourself head on over to the home of Capture One Pro 12 and download the free trial - it lasts 30 days FYI, which is a serious trial period.
