Very Limited

I do not normally write reviews however I felt compelled to regarding Capture One for iPad as its release version is very limited in its capabilities and I did not find that to be as clear as I think it should have been in the product description. This app does not let you take your existing work on the road, this simply allows you to begin very basic culling and editing of images shot away from your computer. Not only was I disappointed that I could not simply take my iPad on the road and continue working on images that I shot back in the Studio, but the transfer speed of pushing images to the cloud from the iPad is painfully slow. I will note that the user interface is incredibly simple and highly effective and that they seem to be poised to continually add valuable features, but the release version of this app is very limited.

Developer Response ,

Thanks for sharing your thoughts on the first experience with Capture One for iPad. You are right: we've decided to launch with a limited set of features and progressively add new ones. For instance, cloud transferring and synchronization, which you mentioned, will be improved already in our next update.

Swing and a miss

Disappointment doesn’t describe how bad this is for me. I am a long time C1 user and love the desktop version. The app UI is good but the features are severely lacking. Things like lack of film simulations for Fuji is certainly understandable and forgivable. EIP? Ok fine, make that a catalog or session package that acts like a catalog or session and can be imported on the desktop. Which included jpegs! For many our jpegs are as good or better than our RAW. I can’t even rate a jpeg, export it to a convoluted drill down to network storage. Only for cloud? I thought the whole idea was to be able to cull photos and rate them on the go? Again only for cloud? Which is a pain and adds unnecessary steps for some. Why can’t I export the same image to my own storage with ratings or better yet as sessions or catalogs?

What about using your iPad to rate, cull and do minor edits with existing catalogs? Nope, can’t open a catalog. This lack of integration to the desktop version renders this app completely useless. You had years to figure out flexibility on work flow. Do your software engineers only own iPad and Macs? What about layers? Other apps can do it. Bottom line this beta version is way too early for release, much less for $5.00 a month. I sincerely hope you can address the workflow issues, EIP to include jpeg or just move to catalogs or session, support networked catalogs that aren’t in the cloud, and add layers for basic masking.

Great first version

I’m a capture one user on Mac. Even though the iPad app is a stripped down version I really like the simplicity and controls are easy to use without being overwhelming. It would be important to maintain this simplicity when adding features in the future. I tried editing Fuji RAW files on my iPad Pro 3rd Gen 2018 and it wasn’t super responsive. But it wast too bad either and I suspect Bayer RAW files will fare better. I would be good to add a spinner in the top bar maybe to indicate when the app is processing, otherwise currently there is no indication that something is happening when the adjustment dial is rotated and the change in the image only reflects after a moment, so there’s really no 1:1 feedback. So adding a processing spinner or something would greatly improve the experience. Also can’t wait for the default Fuji film simulations added to the presets.
