Capture One Pro 5.2 with improved quality for Nikon cameras

Capture One PRO 5.2 just came out and is available for download as trial for new users or update for owners of previous version.

The press-release says that:
“Capture One’s tailor-made Nikon camera profiles are renowned for providing ultimate image quality for Nikon’s top DSLR cameras.  The new release improves colors, tone response and consistency for the following Nikon cameras: D3s, D3x, D3, D2x, D700, D300, D300s, and D90.”

I’ve made a quick comparison of the new and the old profiles and here is the result:

ATTENTION: The image is tagged with AbobeRGB profile, so to view the correct colors, it’s better to download the image and open it in Photoshop. Some browsers, including IE do not have color management and will not display correctly photos with profile other than sRGB!

The photo is taken with Nikon D3x camera and PC Nikkor 85/2.8D lens. There are no any other corrections in Capture One than only changing the color profile and the curve preset.

There is also a new “Portrait” curve added for better colors and halftone transitions on human skin.
