I've been using both Capture One (C1) and Adobe Lightroom (LR) for many years now. I like them both and will continue to use both, but I greatly prefer the default results from C1 over LR when it comes to processing files from the Sony A7RII. On the other hand, I prefer some aspects of LR. Luminance aliasing seems to be less of an issue in LR, and LR still leads the pack in terms of highlight detail retrieval in my experience. LR is also runs seems to run more smoothly on less beastly workstations and is designed to work with some of my favorite plugins from Alien Skin and Nik. Because of all of this, I've set out to find settings to make my LR results more C1-like when it comes to defaults on import of A7RII raw (ARW) files. What I've come up with here seems to work pretty well. It mainly boils down to more noise reduction and sharpening plus a few other small tweaks. Step 1: Go to the Develop pane while editing a raw file from your camera, and make the settings changes shown in the red boxes shown below. Step 2: Choose Develop > Set Default Settings as shown below. Step 3: Choose "Update to Current Settings" as shown below. Once you have done that, all raw files you import in LR will by default use these "C1 emulation" settings. To undo these changes and restore Adobe defaults, repeat Step 2 and then choose "Restore Adobe Default Settings. If you use LR for A7RII files, give it a try and let me know what you think. If you use another Sony camera besides the A7RII, I'd be interested to see what you think of it with your camera as well!
