Phase One A/S
has released Capture One DSLR for Canon EOS 1D and 1Ds cameras. The Mac OS X-native software enables users of those Canon models to perform Raw file conversion.

The software enables photographers to adjust grey balance, levels and curves, contrast, crop, sizing and unsharp masking, all using image processing algorithms that Phase one claims are better than those achieved otherwise.
Phase One CEO Henrik Håkonsson said that he expects pro photographers to use Raw files more than they now rely on JPEG format, which he hopes will spur the demand for Raw file conversion software like Capture One. The company has changed its license policy to help photographers in multi-platform environments, as well.
“There is full flexibility between Windows or Mac and no restrictions on how many machines or how many times the user wants to install the software if preferred in a combined Windows and Mac environment,” said Håkonsson.
Phase One is offering this new release of Capture One for OS X as a pre-release version and a 30-day free trial download. Final release is scheduled for March 31, 2003.
In related news, Phase One also announced a version of Capture One DSLR for Nikon D1X/D100 cameras, specifically for Windows. The company said that a Mac version is scheduled for June 1, 2003.
