After upgrading to the Canon EOS R5 I ran into problems in Lightroom Classic so I decided to try Capture One. So far I am loving the results. This video will compare and contrast the two programs from my perspective as a commercial studio photographer.
People ask me about tethering all of the time. In Lightroom it was a struggle, even with Tether Tools cables, but when I started using Capture One, I wasn’t thrilled that the images were only written to my computer’s hard drive. So I set up this workaround so that photos would write to both my Canon camera and computer, creating an instant backup of my data and allowing me to review images in the EVF and on the LCD.
I tested Hasselblad’s 50MP mirorrless camera in the studio and put it though its paces next to the 45 megapixel Canon EOS R5 while shooting portraits and flowers.
People always want to ask what power my lights were set at when I took the picture and I also see that people like me reporting this information on their BTS diagrams. Here is why!
After using the R5 for a full month as a professional commercial studio and portrait photographer, who shoots some video, I have decided to fully switch from the 5D Mark IV. It took me a while to test everything from auto focus, to tethering to video (including overheating) and how to get the best color out of the new RAW files. This video also covers post production in DPP (Digital Photo Professional), Lightroom and Capture One 20. Please see a full summary of the time line below.
