Yeah, that’s right, if you were unfortunate enough to buy Capture One for Sony in the last month or two, you’re stuck with an upgrade headed your way along with a price to boot. Not only have the prices jumped substantially, but the upgrade cost is substantially higher than a normal purchase.
As a recent switcher to Capture One, I have to say I love the software, but honestly, what the hell were you guys thinking on the price? You would have a lot more luck if you came in with something close to Adobe’s pricing model on the subscription.
I’m busy writing a comparison between Capture One and Lightroom, but for now, I won’t be recommending Capture One until they sort out their rediculous pricing. I also won’t be upgrading.
If you’re tied to an upgrade, have a look around, there are some 10% off deals going. if you aren’t, wait on bigger discounts, a boxing day sale or something that brings Capture One back to the realms of normality.
