As a long time Lightroom user, I was thinking about it too. I didn't find anything convincing enough to switch from Lightroom: https://photographylife.com/lightroom-vs-capture-oneFeels Good Man wrote: ↑ How does this compare to Lightroom? Debating if I should use my credits towards Lightroom or pay for Google One since photo storage is running out
Edit - Trying the trial now on a M1 Macbook Pro and geeze this app is slow. I guess it's not fully optimized for the M1 chip yet.

There's the entire getting away from the subscription model Adobe has going on so doing the one time payment for Capture One might be good in the long run. Too bad the app is only available on computers as it would have been great on tablets too. It's pretty good from what I tried so far but with some complaints.zaporozhets wrote: ↑

About Google One. There is one simple trick that Google hates people thinking about: use multiple free accounts and maintain a database of them in... google Sheets. Then create multiple profiles in Chrome for ez of switching. This gets you unlimited free storage as opposed to paid 100Gb limited storage. This is the RFD way
You can buy it outright but it's a bit pricey.

In what ways was it slow for you? Mine was when trying to see any adjustments, it would take a second or two to see the change. Hoping it'll be fixed with the upcoming update for the M1.snoopsterj wrote: ↑ Coming from an M1 user who used the free trial on my Intel Mac, I can say I wanted to like CaptureOne but it definitely was slow - can’t say for sure but I don’t think it’s an M1 issue...
I’ve been looking for a non-sub solution for ages and still haven’t found it. Luminar 3 is a decent solution that’s closest to Lightroom but it lagged like crazy between raw files for me (seems it’s a documented issue). Can’t beat free though
I was heavily invested into Adobe until I got sick of paying every month and moved 100% to Affinity. Downside is, Affinity Photo’s workflow is more akin to Photoshop rather than Lightroom’s quick edits and it doesn’t have cataloguing.
I hate to say it, but Lightroom still seems to be king. If anyone can confirm that CaptureOne has fixed the speed issues, I’d love to give it another go! Just a warning that they come out with a new non-sub version every year.

First off, monthly subscriptions are a killer for me and that's where Adobe first lost me. I also found their cataloging to be a PITA as I simply want to throw my card in or go to a folder as one normally does. Next up was their noise reduction which is the poorest of all choices. I ended up originally working Adobe with Topaz DeNoise AI as that is questionably the best in the business...
I then moved to DXO PL4 Elite as it is not a monthly subscription, goes directly to the folder without slowing my system through cataloging, and it incorporates their latest noise reduction through 'Deep Prime' which is identical to their most recent release of DXO Pure RAW. Pure RAW and Deep Prime are the same thing. So... I own DXO PL4 Elite, find it to be much more configurable and user friendly in every way, and at least I cannot differentiate between the noise reducing and fine tuning capabilities of Topaz DeNoise vs PL4 Deep Prime. Admittedly, I still jump to DeNoise at times as it also incorporates Clear AI and low light editing.
I tried Capture One for some time and then deleted it as I couldn't match what I already have... The sole downfall here of course is that DXO isn't 50% off, however it doesnt have to be when you consider the massive price even after discount for Capture One.
Easy hand held shot from last night fooling around... Canon R5 (I bought new from Gelo on RFD actually as there was such a backlog last July) with 100-500L Canon lens. 1/80 sec. f/7.1 500mm @ 400ISO

Not true whatsoever... Regular updates to improve DXO PL4 Elite...all free.Davhur wrote: ↑ After trying many many programs. I have come to realize, that if it's not a monthly based subscription (Adobe create cloud), they will get you with the yearly based subscription. Capture one, DXO, On1 all have pretty frequent update releases that will suck most users into purchasing for 69-300$. You will pay either monthly or annually if you wanna stay current - unless you go GIMP. I always end up back at lightroom as I find it runs the best (M1 Macbook) for me.

At which time I STILL OWN my copy of DXO PL4 Elite and it is my choice to move up or not.

How did you get PL4 for free?
