Which device are you using?
iPad Pro 12.9" M2 & iPhone 13
What problem do you see this solving?
The iPad & iPhone version of Capture One is marketed as professional location tools, but yet they lack one of the most essential and basic function; RGB color readouts. When shooting tethered to Capture One, all photographer I know shoot reference cards with black/middle grey/white targets. And not being able to read how high you whites go, or how low your blacks go makes the workflow harder than it needs to be. And even when not measuring the patches on a target, you need to keep an eye on other parts of the image. For instance, when shooting portraits/people, I always keep my red channel below 240 on the brightest parts of the skin. But you can't measure that on the mobile versions, and I find it very strange not to include such a basic and essential feature in a professional piece of software.
When was the last time you were affected by this lack of functionality, or specific tool?
I'm affected by the lack of this every single day I shoot tethered. I used to have Capture One on a laptop for tethered location work before switching to the iPad Pro 12.9", and I used the color readouts on every single shoot.
Are you using any workarounds or other solutions to achieve your goals?
I can't find any way to achieve this. The histogram is too small, and not precise enough, and RGB readouts doesn't exist....
Are you happy to be contacted further about this suggestion or request?
