I'm not sure what you're saying. Does C1 permit wireless shooting without an eye-fi card or a wireless grip?
I'm not being antagonistic, I liked C1 when I was using a Phase One back shooting tethered. It worked fine and I agree the processing is fast and great.
When my friend got his new Macbook Pro it came with Lion which for now doesn't support EOS Utilities Camera Manager. I tried to talk him into C1 but he chose some other program as a stop gap until he gets EOS Utilities working.
I have never shot wireless tethered with C1, though I have never felt the need to do so. When using a phase back or another MF digital back a long firewire has always worked great for me... with the DSLR, a long usb with repeater has always worked great for me too.
The times that I have tested and played with the EOS utilities, only caused migraines, slamming of fists, and utter streams of words I never knew were in my vocabulary.
The speed, quality, amazing results after processing, and ease of use have always kept me coming back to C1...
The other great sexy feature is how it works with iOS devices. I used to HAAAATE it when an art director or client would reach over my shoulder, grab MY mouse, and then click away on something and screw up the whole capture process.... Now they get their own iOS device to play with and they can still offer great input and make selects.
I feel that I've spent enough time with most other offerings out there to have a very educated response to the software available today... and I have yet to see anything that can compare or best C1. With that said, every piece of software is only a tool. How someone uses that tool is also a big factor!
I can also say that for roughly 95% of people that I've shown C1 to, I have converted them from the dark side, aka LR...
