Capture One 22 has now been officially unveiled, bringing some major new tools and improvements to the photo editing software, including new features HDR Merging, Panorama Stitching, Auto Rotate, and Wireless Tethering.
You can now easily merge multiple photos captured at different exposures into a single HDR image with extended dynamic range or combine multiple images into a single panorama. You can also use Panorama Stitching to create images with a wide field of view and shallow depth of field.
Auto Rotate is a new AI-powered feature that uses machine learning to evaluate a selected image and level it. Significantly, a batch of images with a wonky horizon can be straightened automatically, so you don’t have manually correct each one. Meanwhile, the wireless tethering option—which currently only works with Canon cameras—gives users access to the full suite of tethering features. At launch, full support is limited to the Canon EOS R5, R3, 1DX II and 1DX III, but support for additional models and brands is promised in the coming months.
The Sony a7 IV, Nikon Z9 and Canon EOS R3 are all now supported in Capture One 22, and support for four new Canon lenses. In addition, Windows users can now browse, filter and search albums and folders more quickly, and a new service called Capture One Live (still in beta testing) allows shooters to share images, in real time or already captured, for viewing and rating through a Web browser.
Capture One 22 is available now for Windows and macOS, and is apparently optimized for Apple M1, M1 Pro and M1 Max chips. The software can be purchased as a perpetual license ($299 for new users) or as part of a subscription (starting at $24/month). There are also cheaper brand-specific versions of the software available: $199 for a perpetual license and subscription plans starting at $19/month.
