Jason explains how to avoid vignetting on ultra-wide lenses, and offers buying advice on editing software, telephoto zooms and more
Jason says… The favoured option for many photographers is to subscribe to the Adobe CC Photography Plan, at £8.57/$9.99 per month. This includes the latest editions of Photoshop and Lightroom, with perpetual updates. It’s not the only option, however, and Nikon’s own Capture NX-D is a capable RAW editor that’s free (see previous page).
It’s interesting that you’ve tried Capture One Pro 9 from Danish company Phase One. Capture One is arguably the best RAW editing software in the world, and was a clear winner in our group test a couple of months ago (Issue 66, page 110). The only real drawback is that it’s quite pricey, at around £250/$300.
For making the most of RAW files, the high-end tools and performance of Capture One Pro 9 are second to none
