I've been a Lightroom user since the beginning of my career and honestly, I love it. It fits seamlessly into my workflow, and I couldn't imagine using any other raw processor. That is of course until I downloaded a trial of Capture One 11. I've heard people talk about Capture One, but I never thought much of it. After all, what's wrong with Lightroom?
Well, my main issue with Lightroom is how slow tethering is. It takes ages for the image to show up on my monitor and quite frankly, that doesn't look great when a client spends half their session waiting for images to transfer. The way I look at it, if Capture One can out perform Lightroom in the realm of tethering, it's worth a look.
Rather than just taking other people's word for it, I decided to perform a simple comparison between Lightroom and Capture One to see which one is faster when tethering. Check out the video above to see the results. Keep in mind that your results may vary based on your camera, tether cable, and countless other variables. Don't take my word for it though, check it out for yourself. Download the fully functional 30-day trial of Capture One 11 and maybe you'll make the switch like me.
