Phase One and Profoto today announced that their collaboration has produced a new integration between Profoto’s studio lights and Phase One’s Capture One software. Now photographers can link their Profoto studio light to the aperture or ISO settings of their DSLR or medium-format camera system. While shooting tethered in Capture One Pro, any changes to the aperture on the camera will cause the light intensity of the studio light to automatically compensate an equivalent f-stop. For example, if the photographer switches from f/8 to f/5.6, the light will drop one f-stop, so that the image is not overexposed.
The solution lets photographers define which groups of lights should be included in the linking, making it a flexible work tool.
“Capture One Pro was designed to satisfy the needs of professional photographers,” said Henrik O. Håkonsson, CEO & President, Phase One. “Our collaboration with Profoto and the success of our capture and lighting integrations offer unprecedented lighting control during capture. This solution is especially great for portrait photographers who want to vary their depth of field; they can just turn the aperture dial and the light intensity will follow to ensure the right exposure.”
