Capture One price increase coming next week


Capture One will increase their prices next week (on January 11, 2021):

“At Capture One, we’re dedicated to shaping the future of photography. After reviewing our products and plans for future innovation, we’ll soon be updating the price of select products. For example, we’ll be updating the price of Capture One for Fujifilm, Capture One (for Sony) and Capture One for Nikon to bring them in line with Capture One Pro. This is to better reflect that these products equally offer the same set of professional tools and features. We’ll also increase activations to 2 per license for these products. The price updates take effect on January 11, 2021. Existing subscription plans will not be affected by these changes. New customers – and customers seeking to upgrade their license – can still purchase their preferred product or upgrade at the 2020 price before January 11.”


Capture One recently released version 14.0.1 that was specifically created to support the Capture One 21 collaboration with Leica Camera and supports the new Leica SL2-S mirrorless camera (see this dedicated page).

Here are the new Capture One prices (for reference, the current prices can found here – you can still make a purchase and lock in the old prices):
