Sony Xperia PRO-I Product Launch

Sony Xperia PRO-I: A Camera For Mobile Creators?

Wait, this is a phone… with a 1″ sensor. Not a camera. Sony has been on a roll recently. Hot on the heels of the release of their latest ‘entry-level’ full-frame camera the Sony A7IV, they’ve made news again with a PRO phone which features a 1-inch sensor that they have appropriated from their camera lineup: the aptly named Xperia PRO-I. This phone (camera?) sits alongside the $2,500 Sony Xperia Pro which was released in February 2021.

Capture One New Release Brings Exporter Tools Back

Capture One Brings Back Export Tab in v14.4

In version 14.2 of Capture One 21, the company removed the tried and tested method of exporting images in favor of an easier-to-use export-window-styled workflow.

The move had a mixed response, with some professional and enterprise-level users claiming that it broke their workflow. Others – most notably beginners – welcomed the more user-friendly ‘export’ button in the toolbar and subsequent windowed dialog workflow.

Capture One announces HDR and Panorama Feature Development

Capture One Announces HDR and Panorama Features

Capture One just announced that they are working on the ability to merge multiple images into HDRs and to stitch images into Panoramas. This is especially important for the company since new users tend to compare Capture One Pro directly to Adobe Lightroom Classic…

Now, with the announcement that these features are ‘in development’, Capture One seeks to even the playing field in this respect. The company has been on a roll. Earlier this year, they announced a new “Export” interface that caused a little flutter among long-time users, and the Magic Selection Brush, among other improvements.

1000+ RSS Feed Subscribers for Over a Week!

We hit 1,000 subscribers a couple of times last month. But RSS feed subscription numbers are not absolute. They fluctuate often, sometimes going down, sometimes going up, based on daily feed views (not actual subscriptions); so I preferred to err on the side of caution before making this announcement!

I decided to use the benchmark of 1,000 subscribers over a period of one week, and we just managed to achieve that with your help (8 days now, actually)!
