Use your iOS device to remotely view, zoom, rate, and tag high-resolution images during a photography shoot.
Plus, combine Capture Pilot with the additional “Camera Control” in-app purchase to transform your iOS device into a virtual camera display, so you can remotely fire your camera and control essential capture parameters from your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch.
For use with photo editing software Capture One Pro, Capture Pilot is the perfect tool for teams and multi-user shoots, while clients can use it to review shots in real-time and better communicate with photographers.
“Whether it is clients, make-up artists, wardrobe stylists or photographers, or anyone who needs to keep an eye on the shoot, Capture Pilot allows them to see every detail of what is being shot. Most importantly, it successfully engages the entire team in the photographic process."
- Daryn Labier, Blast Digital Studio
“In all, I’m extremely impressed with Phase One’s iOS application Capture Pilot. It enhances the creative process in ways that you won’t be able to predict.”
- Mike Hagen, Nikonians

To check for supported cameras and tethering support visit: https://www.captureone.com/features/supported-cameras
Capture One Pro 11.1 with supported camera tethered connection is required when pairing the camera control app with a Sony camera.
Capture Pilot can connect directly over Wi-Fi to a Phase One IQ2 or IQ3 Digital back.
Focus controls is currently only supported when used directly with a Wi-Fi capable IQ Digital Back running Feature Update 4.
Capture Pilot can also connect over Wi-Fi to Capture One Pro (versions 12, 11, 10, 9, 8, 7 and 6) for browsing Capture One collections, or for control of supported cameras tethered to Capture One.
Capture Pilot can use the GPS unit in your device to access and record location data. Synchronization of the recorded location data with images can happen either simultaneously when Capture Pilot is connected to a Phase One IQ2 or IQ3 digital back, or when the Capture Pilot connection is re-established later. Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life, therefore a “Turn Geo tagging Off” timer option is available in the Capture Pilot preferences.
You can download a trial version of Capture One Pro from www.captureone.com/download
For Capture One Studio users, this update to Capture Pilot adds support for toggling display of the Overlay, Grid and Guides as they are configured in Capture One.
Ratings and Reviews
Great when it works, but extremely unreliable.
When capture pilot works, it’s a brilliant technology to have on set with clients so they can view incoming images, make selects, and the photo team can work uninterrupted. However, it’s more often than not that my digital tech is spending upwards of 30 minutes each day setting it up, troubleshooting dropped connections, restarting the pilot server, etc. For studio days, it’s almost easier to have a second monitor connected to our computer and hard wired to the client area. I wish Phase One would devote some resources into Capture One and Pilot so that they work seamlessly instead of useless things such as film-emulation presets.
Very basic, but it works as a gateway to AppleTV
This app is extremely basic, it only has the ability to rate photos and strangely enough, set the white balance point, the sole editing tool on hand.
I use it as a way to play back my photos on AppleTV and a projector and for that it works very well.
The app allows you to zoom around the photo in full res, loading more of the original RAW file as required to fill in detail, which is something that is not possible via Photos or Aperture.
It would be great if we could access all your editing tools in Capture One remotely and perform edits as you review photos, maybe some day.
As it stands this app feels like a side-hobby project and slightly like abandonware, but perhaps Capture One will take it seriously and make it a differentiator for their product over Lightroom, but i do feel that it is better than their current 2.2 star rating.
Completely Useless App
What is the point of having this app for the iPad when it requires a computer running Capture One?
Please give us an app that at least allows you to control your camera from your iPad while previewing the image on the iPad screen.
This should be able to work in the field without WiFi, just Bluetooth.
Manfrotto had something like this for a while but it seems that they have stopped supporting it.
By the way, I purchased a license for Capture One Pro v11 and have found it to be of little use. Considering that Capture One did not honor their promise of free upgrades for a year as one month after purchase and installation they went to v12 and I would have to pay another $300 to get the upgrade. Needless to say I will not be renewing my license when my current license expires.
If you must have a pro image editing package, go with Adobe Lightroom/Photoshop.
Myself, I refuse to be held hostage to a perpetual subscription model.
I now use GIMP in place of photoshop and it’s completely free.
