    Don't know if anyone else is swithering, but I just downloaded and have been playing with Capture One express. I was on the point of shelling out for Oloneo, with my 'tester' discount (read 'freebie user who got hooked'!) I know it's personal preference (and budget) that will decide, but does anyone out there have any thoughts on which is better?

    Which one is better for what ? I use Capture One to process RAW files and Oloneo for HDR. Didn't know Oloneo had RAW processing in it.

    I just tried out the RAW processor in Oloneo.
    Hmm. I like the equalizer controls......
    The tool I use most in C1 is the rotate tool - almost every photo I take is off by the same amount (I think my brain is off by about 3 degrees) and it's so quick in C1.

    Agree with Big Bri, The 2 softwares are completely different, Tried Oloneo but found the interface a nightmare as far as HDR goes, Nik's HDR Efex Pro is much more versatile and user friendly.

    Capture One 6 Express is a darned good RAW processing program, Good sensible interface & workflow, We use it a lot, My other half uses it exclusively.....Grin

    Maybe the newer version of Oloneo has more control, But its still a HDR sofware rather than a straight processing tool...!!!

    Olono does do RAW I think - though C1 is my favoured tool for that.

    I've tried Oloneo HDR which is pretty cool, but does give that "it's definitely a HDR" look - whereas with careful use of Photomatix, you can get results which look "real" (we had a 1 shot or hdr group that proved this).

    I saw Nik HDR EFEX at focus and even on a mac, it was painfully slow.... so slow, so incredibly slow, slower than a slug crawling slowly in a slow race.... but looked quite powerful. who knows, with the right 8 processor machine and 16GIG ram, it may work a treat.

    Thing is - does it do batch processing ? I guess you can record an action ?

    Photomatix and batch processing is still lovely

    Oloneo does have Raw conversion. So I've been using it for that and HDR. I find that Oloneo's HDR tools, used gently, are at least as effective as C1, and a lot faster, but I'm aware that my experience of C1 is limited to 2 evenings so far, as opposed to almost a year with Oloneo. And C1 does have slide show and stuff, but I don't use them, so not an issue for me. So I s'pose that pretty much answers my own question really...unless I'm missing something in C1?

    capture one is used around the world by many professionals as their first choice RAW editor program - I've not met one that uses Oloneo

    now that's maybe because Oloneo is new?

    I dunno - but I'd certainly not write C1 off.

    Cool. Not just me then. I assume it's not due to me.... swaying... as that would mean half the photos were tilting the other way.

    Thanks everyone. I didn't mean that I'm writing off C1, far from it, I agree they are different, and C1 does have a smooth workflow layout, I was trying to decide if I want to pay out for Oloneo too, and I think I do.
    Thanks for the comments, they helped... Smile

    Ade - Seems the free version expires in about 2 weeks, don't know what it does if you don't pay up, but if you were registered for their e-mails you get it at 25% off....about the 100.00 mark...but only if you pay before the end of the month Sad
