I was about to order Capture One 4.6 and Microsoft Expressions Media 2 from Phase One.
But then it wasn't clear if you only get a download, or also the discs. There are no indications about it, and Phase One seems to be slow with answering emails, as I still have no reply to an e-mail to the sales department.
I'd like to know if you have bought Capture One from the Phase One website and if you had the option to receive a disc.
I believe you must download the program. A disk would be useless anyways, as PhaseOne is upgrading somewhat frequently--a program still in development. BTW, make sure you download 4.6. Also, once you buy the program, you will be able to join the PhaseOne forum. There you can ask questions, read about issues, and get answers. I check the site every day.
