Can I use Capture One Express (for Sony) and Capture One Express for Fujifilm together?
If you have Sony and Fujifilm cameras and want to use Capture One Express for each of those, you need to consider the following:
1. To use Capture One Express for Fujifilm and Capture One Express (for Sony) product variants on the same computer, you will have to get a separate license for each of those.
2. When there is a need to switch from Capture One Express Fujifilm to Capture One Express (for Sony), you will have to deactivate the license first by navigating to Capture One -> License on Mac or Help -> License on Windows. Then, use the license key to activate another product variant. Apparently, this kind of workflow could be a bit exhausting.
3. To use several cameras from different manufacturers, consider acquiring Capture One Pro which supports camera models from major camera brands.
Look at the set of features comparing the Express and full version of the software.
And what about Capture One Catalog? Since the Express version does not support multiple catalogs, is there a way I can have my Sony photos separated from my old Nikon photos?
Thank you for the comment.
As Express allows using a single Catalog only, you can keep your existing Catalog.
To separate Sony photos, just create a Smart Album by pressing "+" in the User Collection part of the Library with the criterion "Camera Make" "contains" SONY.
That way, the images from your Sony camera(s) will be gathered in this Smart Album.

It is shame that one cannot have two Express versions for different cameras without all that fooling around to switch licenses.
Please make it easier to use both versions on the same computer by providing advice/supplying directions for two separate installations--like into different named directories or some other method.
I totally agree with @J Edwards.
The website should allow multiple licenses keys to be entered. When the app launches (since it already contains all product variants), it should provide popup that asks user which license to use. This shouldn't be hard to do. Actually I just looked online and there are now to license keys.
If you have to deactivate, then activate again later, why do the number of activations now say 0 for both my "free" licenses?
Oh boy, that's poor... Please fix it! - see @ J Edwards
