I've just gone back to trying the latest version of Capture One and found it to be very impressive for actually processing RAW files - possibly better results than Lightroom.
However, a snag I've come across, which I thought might be worth broadcasting, is that if, like me, you write IPTC keywords on your RAW file as you import them from the card (I use Downloader Pro), they are scrubbed off by C1.
Apparently this is a known problem, which they acknowledged in March, and promised to fix in a future release. Still waiting....

Just as an aside does anyone know if there have been any independent instruction books written for capture one?

Hi Stephen, this seems to be a problem with all stand alone raw converter and not just C4, Silkypix is the same with a promise that the next version will work with xmp sidecar files, in fact the only other program I know that does not lose keywording added to raw files is ACDSee pro 2.5 which reads keywording added in Adobe or vice versa, the problem is although a great DAM program its a lousy raw processor, but then I did not buy it for that.:)

Lightroom seems OK for this.

Indeed it is, has is CS3/ Bridge and Elements organizer I think all of Adobe products support embeded key wording. :)

The unfortunate thing is, just now I think C1 has the edge (just) on raw processing.
