The web browser function offers an additional means of viewing and rating images for photographers or clients. This function allows anyone to get access to Capture One Pro's Capture Pilot tool as long as they have a computer or a smart device with a web browser and an internet connection. This avoids the 'monitor huddle' that is common with studio shoots. You can also use it to view shooting sessions via the internet from remote locations.
Web viewing mode: Capture Pilot classic
Capture Pilot Classic is, in essence, a contact sheet of thumbnail images. Newly captured images will appear as soon as they are shot when shooting tethered. Thumbnail size can be adjusted by pressing the S, M, and L letters in the top-left corner of the screen.
