Feature Update #2 for XF Camera and Capture One 9.1 Released

Feature Update #2




With the release of Feature Update #2, Phase One proves its dedication to the XF system. What’s important to note is that these updates aren’t just bug fixes or corrections. As promised, these are brand new tools for photographers to use and make shooting more convenient. This new feature update underlines the uniqueness of a software driven camera system.



With added focus control, the XF Camera System can now systematically capture a sequence of images while precisely adjusting focus for each frame. You set the parameters and the XF Camera System does the rest. Perfect in the studio or in the field, the Focus Stack Tool results in image sequences perfect for integration into post processing solutions like Helicon Focus… now FREE for 1 year to any XF Camera System owner.



An excellent creative tool, the XF Camera System now provides a Time-lapse sequence tool, also known as an Intervalometer, to capture automated image sequences. Use it for compiling images after the shoot or to ensure the nuance of fading light is never missed. The precision control of the Time-lapse tool allows you to set the time between each capture, the total number of captures, as well as the delay at start. The tool respects all existing camera modes and options, ensuring meticulous accuracy and dependable captures.


The HDR tool of the XF Camera System is similar to the bracketing feature but integrates proprietary tags so images can easily be identified, selected and edited in Capture One. The HDR Tool provides added workflow options to minimize post-processing complications and allow for easier integration with third-party applications.



With the introduction of the XF Camera System came the introduction of our proprietary autofocus platform. Our HAP-1 system ensures that we can grow, customize and accelerate autofocus to meet the needs of the world’s most demanding photographers. Improvements have been made to increase accuracy in low light conditions, ensure focus of various low contrast materials in even light, and improved precision when using the XF Camera System handheld with behavior changes initiated from the systems several accelerometers.

A fresh new look for the Ultimate Camera System. The XF Camera System and all Phase One products embrace an elegance and simplicity in design, both in their physical form and in their User Interface. The XF Camera System introduced a cohesive and intuitive user interface, the OneTouch UI. We are pleased to announce further integration and a new look with Feature Update #2. New intuitive tool access and a clean look take the OneTouch UI a step closer to perfection.

Self Timer Delay

In true Phase One fashion, your feedback is essential to our success. In all our time touring the new XF Camera System we’ve heard quite a few suggestions for an old standard, the Self Timer drive mode. We’re happy to add back this capture delay, providing a quick and easy, fully customizable timer option to the XF Camera System. Set any delay from half a second to a full minute and the XF Camera System will take it from there.

General Feature Improvements

Dedicated to provide the best medium format camera system available we’ve taken the opportunity Feature Update #2 has provided us to include a bit of polish for existing features and ensure the absolute best in system integration. We’ve introduced a more dynamic workflow to the already powerful Hyperfocal Distance tool, the ability to add/remove tools from the Top Touch Screen menu as well as ensured internal performance tracking is recorded within the Camera System. All available performance statistics are now fully integrated to ensure your XF Camera System can diagnose it’s own performance and in the future provide feedback should anything be less than perfect.
