I am an EM2 user and hope that phase one keeps the cataloging software separate. I do not like software like LIghtroom etc... I just want to have a simple and powerful catalog program.
I'm on the same boat.
I hope Capture One will not do a remake of Lightroom and will keep separe products.
I find the lightroom (to my personal taste) confusing whith all this integration philosophy.
In fact, the fastest and most efficient workflow I've been able to acheive so far is combining C1 or ACR with bridge.
The web gallery integrated in LR are ok but of course it does not fit professional standart.
I'd like to see some really reduced but powerfull features, an integrated backup system, being able to write scripts etc...
C1 is a professional tool and IMO it has to keep its nature.
If they go Lightroom-style they will enter the consumer market with all these fancy gadgets like the web gallery. No thanks.
Let's see what they will do, but I trust Phase to stay on track.
