    Can you post some screen grabs of:

    CS colour settings
    Capture one prefs settings for rendering intent
    Actual images of preview in 3.9 and final file in CS

    I have always had the same problem, CS3 files are darker than the C1 previews, would be interested in the results and possible solution, I think it has been mentioned on here before.

    I have a similar problem with files looking LIGHTER in cs3 than in Capture (looks like a CMYK conversion). The issue I have determined so far is as system problem with Adobe vs Coloreyes profiles but why I dont know.

    I use a MacBook w/ external monitor and iMac (OSX 10.4, with CS3, C1Pro (3.7.9) and LightRoom1 and recently installed ColorMunki. Have been trying to process files (hi-res tiffs, Adobe 1998, 300ppi) but when i open the same file in C1Pro, LR1 or ACR, the files brightness and contrast varies greatly from program to program C1 has the best look but i don't know which one to trust.

    Also, in any of the programs, when the thumbs and previewss first open they look great then suddenly convert to a terrible very contrasty look. Anyone have any ideas for how to get initial previews to look like the previews? Anyone know why each program renders the colour so differently?

    I suspect the problem is related to this: http://www.phaseone.com/HOME/Content/Su ... 20-%20Main

    Basically if the camera is set to ISO 50, it is actually capturing at ISO 100 and telling software to underexpose 1 stop. Because capture One sticks the actual values of the raw file, it may look brighter than in Photoshop or canon software.

    I'm using Nikon D3 so the suggestion about Canon ISO 50 does not apply to my work flow. Do you have another suggestion?

    Same apply to ISO 100 on Nikon which has a base ISO of ISO 200.

    Hi Jon and Ulf,

    The images suddenly have much more contrast and super saturation not really darker so does your explanation above still hold up. Also, i recently played with settings in bridge and was able to get the Bridge thumbs to remain as shot although the previews in bridge still change to high contrast & high saturation but to a much lesser degree than before. i achieved better results in bridge by resetting the default processing to factory settings and turning off all auto processing in bridge.

    phase is definitely giving me better results but it does not really support tethered shooting and i need tethered.

    Of course you are aware of the CO4 route for tethering your D3.

    Very briefly, the main pros of upgrading to CO4 are better image quality, faster processing and smaller preview files. The cons are that you need Leopard/Intel Mac (Snow Leopard will be released in about 2 month), learn new tricks (different interface), might miss some features (CO4 Pro though fairly stable is still maturing feature wise).
    Main reason to upgrade however is that CO3 is end-of-life; no developments will be done towards the program. This means no new cameras will be supported, and no Snow Leopard support (it might work or not) in case you buy a new Mac in September or later.

    You can upgrade for free if you have a CO3 license, and try it out without giving up CO3 (installs next to it; even runs parallel).
