Known issues
Below you will find a list of known issues for Capture One 5.2.1 at the time of shipping.
General:
• Live View for P 65+ and P 40+ requires a Digital Back firmware update, which enables Live
View support.
• Using a large preview image size will affect performance.
• ICC version 4 profiles and some ICC version 2 profiles are not supported for Mac OS Leopard,
Windows 7 and Windows Vista.
• Setting the white balance on a connected camera from the Camera tool is supported for Phase
One Digital Backs and selected Mamiya Digital Backs. It is not available for Canon and Nikon
DSLR cameras.
• Sessions are not cross platform compatible.
• For Canon 1D Mark II, 1Ds Mark II, 1D Mark II N: These cameras only support remote capture
via the FireWire port. Clear any messages on the LCD panel of the camera before connecting
the camera, otherwise capturing will be disabled.
• For Canon 5D Mark II, 5D, 20D, 500D/Rebel T1i, 450D/Rebel XSi, 400D/Rebel XTi, and
350D/Rebel XT: Set the camera’s communication setting to PC connection or Normal to
enable remote capture. Do not use the Print/PTP or PTP setting.
• Browsing folders containing unsupported image files may affect application performance
• Image previews created with a version prior to Capture 4.7 will be updated with Capture One
5.2.1. The first time you access folders with existing Capture One previews the application
performance can be slow.
• Presets made with Capture One 5.2.1 may not be compatible with older versions of Capture
One.
• Do not open the shutter on the camera prior to opening the Live View window. Doing so will
generate errors on the digital back after closing the Live View window. The recommended
procedure for using Live View is to first open the Live View window, then open the shutter on
the camera, use Live View as desired, when done close the shutter on the camera, and close
the Live View window.
• For Leaf backs and Mamiya DM systems, the camera body must be selected in preferences
before connecting the back.
• When using a Leaf back and Mamiya DM systems in a tethered setup, please make sure to
use a FireWire interface that can supply at least 12W of power and a Leaf FireWire cable.
• When attaching a Leaf back and Mamiya DM systems to a computer with Capture One
running, firmware update may start automatically. Do not interfere with this process that may
take a few minutes.
• For Leaf backs and Mamiya DM systems, Capture One only supports shooting tethered to
compressed files.
• For Leaf backs and Mamiya DM systems, in the case of a communication error during firmware
upload, please wait 10 minutes before disconnecting the FireWire cable.
• Leaf Aptus II 8 only works with black and white live view.

Mac:
•
•
•
•
•
Shooting tethered with some Canon cameras on Mac OS 10.6.4 may for some hardware
configurations, sporadically hang the application during image transfer for up to about 2
minutes. No such issues have been observed on Mac OS 10.5.8.
When you have disconnected a camera do not reconnect a camera until the Camera tool
status changes to "No Camera Attached".
Certain version (e.g. 2.4) of the Logitech Control Center may conflict with the tethered capture
functionality of Capture One. We strongly recommend upgrading to the latest version of the
Logitech Control Center.
It is only possible to show the Capture One toolbar in “Icon Only” mode.
Using e.g. a US laptop keyboard it might be preferable to change some of the standard
keyboard shortcuts.
Windows:
• Tethered shooting (and Live View) with Leaf backs and Mamiya DM systems is not currently
supported on 64bit versions of Windows.
• Library tool cannot be closed or moved from the default tab.
• Windows drivers are required for some older models of Canon DSLR cameras to be able to
shoot tethered. These drivers are available from Canon’s web site.
• Connecting some Canon cameras to the computer after launching Capture One might result in
tethered capture being unavailable. If you experience this, connect the camera to the computer
prior to launching Capture One.
• Windows 7 may switch off FireWire power when the FireWire has been inactive for more than
2 minutes. Please refer to hotfix http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2173749 for a solution to this
issue.
