- Capture One Pro 6 has been built to support an upcoming iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch application called Capture Pilot(TM) that will allow you to wirelessly view, zoom in on, and pan high resolution RAW, JPEG and TIFF images from leading DSLR and medium format camera systems.
Also available in Capture One Express 6:
- Extended Camera Support. Support for most popular DSLRs and digital backs
- Integrated Movie Import. Import, browse and play video, including HD video, from DSLR cameras
