    Here’s what Rafael Orta, the CEO of Capture one had to say:

    We have noticed the requests for supporting Hasselblad cameras from our community, and we have responded to them, unfortunately not the answer y’all likely want to hear.

    Providing support for a camera, especially a wonderfully high-end device like the X2D 100C, is not as simple as enabling or disabling via metadata.

    Instead, we work very closely with manufacturers to carefully calibrate colors and lenses, to make sure their files consistently and predictably look beautiful in Capture One, across many different lighting conditions and photography scenarios.

    As you say, the relationship between Phase One and Hasselblad was notoriously antagonistic, and as I’m sure you’ll know from life experience, it takes a second to blow up a bridge and a very long time to rebuild it

    So, I’m not going to say never, but I can’t commit to a timeline either, so for now we’ve taken the stance of openly saying that it’s “Not currently planned”, and we will of course update that information if and when circumstances allow.

    Thanks again for your note and wishing you all the best.

    Would greatly appreciate if C1 would support Hassleblad X2D camera.

    I would like to see this as well.  I get they are competitors but... not really.  Not for this.  The lack of Hasselblad support doesn't mean I'm buying a Phase One camera.  It means I'm going to use Adobe instead.

    I am in a similar situation! 
    I would rather use C1 then Lr but without the Hasselblad X series support i can’t switch!

    I would really appreciate if you could clarify your current position toward the Hasselblad system.

    Thanks and cheers

    I've been a long time user of CaptureOne with all of my nikons from d800, d810, d850 and have now moved on to the Hasselblad X System. I would be truly grateful and would happily purchase another license if you so choose to support the Hasselblad x1d, x1d mk2, and the x2d! Please let's make this happen!!! Much love from Paris.

    They only support mainstream cameras, you know, like the Leica M11 Monochrom, which got support about 3 days after it was released. Both owners were delighted!

    Please support Hasselblad 3FR and FFF files.

    This would substantially facilitate and speed my workflow.

    Thank you.

    I left capture one since they do not support. x2d

    Please give support for the Hasselblad X2D! You would get a whole new bunch of clients!

    One more vote. Although I like Phocus, it would be interesting to see how C1 renders the X2D and X1DII files. Also it would streamline my workflow because I have to use C1 for my Canon, but Phocus for my Hasselblad. This way I could use one software when I use both cameras on a job.

    I can only support my colleges here. Please add the Hasselblad files. I loved working with C1 but you forced me to work with Adobe instead. The day you support the X-System I will be back. Until then, good bye…

    Need X2D support asap. Love Capture One!

    Great job. We really need to stick together to really try to push this through to both companies. And to why anyone would want to choose the X2D over say a GFX 100 ii. Well it really depend on what matters to you. In all honesty GFX systems has a lot going for it. Huge lens line up, mush faster AF (not to mention eye AF) and of course C1 support. However the one thing that GFX doesn’t do for me happens to also be the dealbreaker for me. It is the colours. I personally like to have natural colours as a starting point when i do my editing. And most of the time i leave it as such. And if i ever do feel like tweaking to change the vibe i can. But with the GFX 100s i had previously, as much as i tried to edit the files i was never able to achieve that rendering. I don’t like spending too much time doing edits to make the colours right. With the hasselblad colours are very much spot on and pleasing. The very reason i sold my GFX to get the hasselblad. But if the colours from the GFX works for you then i would say the GFX is by far the better system. Next is the ergonomics of the camera. The X2D is to me a better camera in terms of ergonomics for me. But i must say the GFX 100 ii. Has improved so much. Lastly it is the user interface. GFX is just too bloated for my liking. The hasselblad is so clean and simple.

    Supporting the Hasselblad cameras would be a huge win not only for so many Capture One users but also for the X1D&X2D shooters which would could get finally access to the best software in the market.

    Please listen!!

    I'm transitioning away from C1 as well do to the lack of support for X2D, but to be fair it's not all up to C1. Hasselblad have to be open to the integration as well. I just hope both companies can see the possible upsides.

    Another vote. Please consider adding Hasselblad X series cameras.

    Please support the x2d & x1d ii! So much more client could be on the C1 horizon!

    I would also love to see this, I do have a work around to shoot Hasselblad Tethered if anyone would like to hear it I'd be happy to share?

    Please make Capture one compatible with Hasselblad files. My workflow will be improved!

    I worked for years (since version 8) with Capture One but, as I switched from Leica to Hasselblad, I've had to quit and switch from Capture One to Lightroom.

    If Capture One accepted to open a Hasselblad files support, I would be DELIGHTED to switch back to C1, that I loved for long.

    Please !!

    I received a survey from Hasselblad a few weeks ago.  One of the questions was about Capture One support, so it seems that there is some awareness on their side.  Keep pressing both companies!

    Capture One supports all Fujifilm GFX cameras, the Leica S series and even the Pentax 645Z
    I simply don’t get why they keep ignoring and ostracizing the Hasselblad cameras.
    As a faithful capture one user, I find this story to be discouraging and frankly disappointing.
    I thought this software is meant to help pro photographers, offering the state of the art support to the best cameras in the market,!

    Question: is there anything we can do to push C1 to support the Hassy files???
