I shoot raw plus sjpeg, raw files stay on my cf card, and the smallest jpegs get sent to the iPad, these take on average, in my studio, around 2 seconds. On location using my iPhone 4s as a mobile hotspot they take around 3-4 seconds which is fine for me

Thanks, I'll pass this on to my friend.

we should all buy 5d3s and use a eye-fi SD card :)

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...

just my .02c

I'm surprised how little attention Capture 1 Pro gets around here...

Shooting tethered is soooos imple with C1, and when shooting in a situation where there are multiple people on set, utilizing ipod, iphone, ipad is PRICELESS!!!

You can create folders that are effected only by those using the iOS devices so they can make picks and selects without altering your workflow while shooting.

It is simply excellent.

BY NO MEANS AM I SPONSORED BY PHASE ONE.

I only recommend it as I've used the other options out there, lightroom, hasselblad phocus, leaf capture, etc etc etc etc etc....

every single time I have come back to Capture 1 Pro, not just becuase of the ease of use, but image quality as well!

I dare you to put images side by side processed through LR and C1 and tell me that the LR looks better. True, you'd have to pixel peep to really see alot of the main differences, but when it matters, IT MATTERS!

just my .02c

I played with Capture One Pro .. it's faster than LR3... but LR3 is cheap... and all my clients are fine with it.

BUT... if I do upgrade... I would go to Capture One Pro.

I messed around in C1P during a shoot, but it was alot more complex and overwhelming to learn then LR3 :(

LR3 is too slow tethering anyways. I use Capture One and Capture Pilot for the iPad. The speed is really good.

+1 for this very quick and easy to set up also capture pilot lets you set limitations on what can be done so you can set it so all you can do is view which is great for client use.

If you do a lot of tethered shooting I highly recommend the tether tools jerk stopper http://www.shop.tether​tools.com …-Camera-Support-JS020.htm (external link) not only does it reduce stress on your cameras port but also stops unwanted disconnects. Oh and I am in no way associated with Tether Tools just like the product. Also has anyone tried the USB to Ethernet adaptor http://www.shop.tether​tools.com …-Cat6-Extender-CATEXT.htm (external link) I currently use an active usb extension cable this looks like it would work better.
