Lens profiles support in Capture One

    The few lens profiles available for the Nikon Z appears disappointing, given it's popularity especially with the newer Z 6/7 II models which are persuading hordes of existing DSLR shooters and photographers from other manufacturers (like myself) to upgrade/move to the Nikon Z ecosystem.

    The following super popular prime lenses which are used by both pro & amateur photographers are of particular interest as they cover three key interest groups Landscape, Astrophotography & Portrait:

    NIKKOR Z 20mm f/1.8 S
    NIKKOR Z 85mm f/1.8 S

    And I imaging many pros would also be interested to see the following lenses:

    NIKKOR Z 14-24mm f/2.8 S
    NIKKOR Z 50mm f/1.2 S
    NIKKOR Z 70-200mm f/2.8 S


    Now correct my lack of knowledge here, but is the reason all these lenses have not yet been profiled by the Capture One team and are unlisted due to Nikon embedding their lens profiles as part of their raw source files or is it a case that you are still working on them?

    Perhaps some clarity about the use of lens profiles for people that shoot straight out of camera JPG would also be useful.

    Also is there an explanation/reason as to why all the Nikon Z cameras have the following footnote added to them? *Appears as Manufacturer Profile

    Hi Michael, 

    Thank you for your comment.

    I have forwarded your request to support this lens profile to the dedicated thread - https://support.captureone.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/360012937417-Lens-profiles-support-please-submit-all-the-requests-suggestions-regarding-lens-profiles-here-?page=11#community_comment_360003937458

    Hopefully, your feedback contributes towards a future version of Capture One.

    Meanwhile, please feel free to check this article on how to work with unlisted lens profiles.

    As for your question, *Appears as Manufacturer Profile footnote means that inside Capture One it will show 'Manufacturer Profile' instead of the name of the lens and when 'Manufacturer Profile' shows, it simply means that there is a profile, but Capture One didn't custom create it.

    Hi Lily, any news about the Fuji 16-80mm f4? I use only C1 now to handle all my files and it's a pain to not have a profile for this awesome lens! Also the Tamron SP 15-30 f2.8 is only listed in Canon EF mount, but is missing for Nikon F mount, any chance it will be added in a future update? thanks for your work and kind regards.

    I see the Leica Summarit-M 50mm f/2.4 supported but not the f/2.5. Is there material difference in needing a profile for the Leica Summarit-M 50mm f/2.5 to be added?

    Hi,

    I assume that Capture One is a professional software. You charge no that small amount of money for it so I think you should provide professional support for stuff that photographers use.

    These lenses are on the market for quite a long time and still are not officially supported by C1
    - RF 24-70/2.8
    - RF 70-200/2.8
    - RF 50/1.8
    - RF 35/1.8
    - RF 400/2.8
    - RF 600/4

    basically all new RF lenses

    As well as well known Sigma 60-600.


    Basically Canon lenses are getting more popular day by day and lack of support is not very... pro from your side.

    If you don't have enough manpower to do these profiles maybe you should consider hiring new employees ?:)

    Can you tell me if these lenses are on your roadmap and if they are - when they will be officially supported by Capture One. And please don't write me back - that you will talk with some product owners... Give me (us) clear answer.

    Micha, I support you 100%.

    It cannot really be that Capture One does not support professional lenses that have been on the market for more than 2 years.

    In addition to your list, I am missing

    RF 85mm 1.2
    RF 100mm macro 2.8
    RF 100-500

    As long as it does not provide a roadmap for the support of Canon RF lenses (of my 6 RF lenses only the RF 15-35 2.8 (poorly distorted) is supported), my roadmap with Capture One will finally end with version 21.

    Hi Michal,

    as mentioned before here, this is a massive lack of respect to the customers using professional, up to date gear from Canon.

    As nothing changed for the last year and a lot of those items are shipped by Canon (same with Sigma Art), I think Phase One has no interest in supporting them in a serious way.

    Terefore I switched my software and do CO as a backup and for my other cameras. Because it´s better than other apps.

    That´s a good workaround for me, not so good for CO - but I was tired to read release notes just for knowing everything is supported but my lenses.

    Christian,

    you must know, Phase One und Capture One are in the meantime two different companies!

    I am seriously considering to go back to lightroom just because of lack of lens correction profiles, your software is AWESOME and I love it, but out of all the lenses I own many of them don't have a correction profile, witch in a fast workflow is a big issue! Tamron SP 15-30 f2.8 nikon f mount still missing and is a very popular lens also is supported in ef mount weirdly enough, Sigma 24-70 f2.8 E mount still missing and again very popular lens Fuji 16-80 f4 super popular lens still missing and on and on this way. You guys better get some profiles out there in order to keep people from going away! They are kind of key for professionals in my humble opinion

    @Hans-Joachim Guhr: huh, didn't realise, sorry. But the problem remains the same. I'm annoyed seeing dropped by CO and even more annoyed using LR for my Canon R6. It's slower, not as versatile as CO and the files look worse. But it's the way to go.

    If my other equipment changes, the software will change, too.

    I think CO should have done the basics and then introduce fancy features, not the other way - like they do now. The last ones who have gone down that path were the Aperture-Guys from Apple.

    @christian schmid i am trying DXO photo lab now - 31 days trial period should tell me if it is worth switching. 
    maybe its worth to start YT campaign for better support - maybe C1 will listen.

    Despite its many strengths, Capture One is not software a Canon RF user can rely on. I've invested a ton of time learning Capture One. But it's time to move on.

    Canon is the largest camera manufacturer in the world. Their RF cameras and lenses are the future of the company.
    Yet, 3 years after the RF systems was introduced, here is the list of lenses that Capture One supports:

    Capture One RF Support
    ======================
    RF 50mm f/1.2L USM
    RF 35mm f/1.8 MACRO
    RF 24-105mm f/4 IS USM
    RF 28-70mm f/2 L USM
    RF 15-35mm F2.8L IS USM

    Here's the list that Adobe supports:
    ====================================
    Canon RF 24-240mm F4-6.3 IS USM
    Canon RF 28-70mm F2 L USM
    Canon RF 35mm F1.8 MACRO IS STM
    Canon RF 50mm F1.2 L USM
    Canon RF 85mm F1.2 L USM
    Canon RF 15-35mm f/2.8 L IS USM
    Canon RF 24-70mm f/2.8 L IS USM
    Canon RF 24-105mm F4L IS USM
    Canon RF 24-105mm F4-7.1 IS STM
    Canon RF 70-200mm F2.8 L IS USM
    Canon RF 85mm F1.2 L USM DS
    Canon RF 85mm F2 MACRO IS STM
    Canon RF 100-500mm F4.5-7.1 L IS USM
    Canon RF 100-500mm F4.5-7.1 L IS USM + EXTENDER RF1.4x
    Canon RF 100-500mm F4.5-7.1 L IS USM + EXTENDER RF2x
    Canon RF 400mm F2.8L IS USM
    Canon RF 600mm F4L IS USM
    Canon RF 600mm F11 IS STM
    Canon RF 600mm F11 IS STM + EXTENDER RF1.4x
    Canon RF 600mm F11 IS STM + EXTENDER RF2x
    Canon RF 800mm F11 IS STM
    Canon RF 800mm F11 IS STM + EXTENDER RF1.4x
    Canon RF 800mm F11 IS STM + EXTENDER RF2x

    Many modern lenses require substantial digital correction of RAW files as there is significant and obvious distortion in the unprocessed RAW file. The Camera does this processing internally when you save JPEG Files. Most Raw Converters provide lens profiles that automatically do the same processing for Raw files. Capture One does this only for a few RF lenses.

    Some of these lenses have been out for years. The RF 24-240, which has significant distortion requiring a lens profile was released in 2019. Similar issues with the 15-35 f/2.8L. Canon just released 14-35 f/4 L ISM which will have the same issues.

    Constant requests from users get no response from Capture One. You have no idea when or if they will ever produce a profile for the lens you asked about. That's horrible customer service when you are a professional whose income depends on the ability to produce quality output. It shows a total disregard for the needs of their user base.

    Capture One is supposedly a top-notch Raw Converter. For me it is not. Who cares about Capture One's great features if you can't process the Raw photos out of your camera for the majority of your lenses. I'm forced to shoot jpeg or use other RAW conversion software. Yet I have no idea if Capture one will ever support the RF lens lineup. Lots of unfulfilled promises. Why???

    Allan,
    you are absolutely right.

    Capture One doesn't actually do its homework. Perhaps the software developers no longer understand their own program code either.

    Or, Capture One's company philosophy is to only support those photographers who (for whatever reason) do not buy new technical equipment more often.

    After more than two years there is neither a support for professional lenses (Canon RF) nor a statement at all about the timeframe of the support. This either speaks of unprofessional support or of deliberate customer deception.

    Version 21 is the last version I bought. Under these conditions, I can only say goodbye to Capture One.

    Capture One is a micro company compared to Adobe. They simply don't have resources to provide same level of software support for lenses and even cameras. Apparently they made a choice not to spend too much in that area.
