  • Graham Smith says:

    Kevin, Capture One is making useful changes in their cataloguing tools with each release, but it creates large catalogues, which are slow to create and use. It seems that people who are using it need to split their photographs across multiple catalogues. e.g. a catalogue for each year. But you…

    Although a slightly different solution, as its not providing the backup tools of Myllio, Phase One's media Pro would appear faster than Mylio at scrolling through thumbnails.

    The gloves come off in the world of Micro Four Thirds as Olympus announces E-M1ll at Photokina. One of my predications for the world of mirrorless was that at some point, mirrorless cameras were going to outpace traditional DSLR’s in speed of AF, frames per second, and just about everything…
