Lightroom vs Capture One performance

Please, you have to wake up now and do something for Lightroom programs when Capture One begins to take over now.

Lightroom has very slow performance and old code.

Capture One is very fast when compared to Lightroom. Many change to Capture One now because Lightroom = very slow performance.

I hope you Adobe does something about it. Let me know.

Thanks!

Agreed, my subscription expires in four weeks and I won't renew until it's worth it.

It's not just performance though, it's IQ as well. For my camera, Fuji X-T2, and the type of photography I do, image quality is just way better in Capture One. I've been a Lightroom user from the start, and I never thought I would move away from it, but here I am.

yes Adobe need be wake up!

I keep Adobe photography because Photoshop worth money. Only Lightroom lost for my part.

I think many discover Capture very fast and nice color directly compare with Lightroom more netrual color tone.

Lightroom need be updated to better vs Capture One! In Sweden magazine recommend Capture One over Lightroom now.

Wondering if #adobe really knows what competition is doing. For example, #adobe, please buy/or/ and test Capture Pro; use the same RAW file from a Nikon D750 and pull the Highlight to -100 in both programs and tell me why Lightroom is that bad. Not to mention Capture reads the raw files over all better and to make them look the same in Lightroom i actually need to make slider changes. Really #adobe???? Thats all you can do? Not to mention the very wrong Keyboard Shortcuts, which aren't the same like in Photoshop and no possibility to opt for the "standard" or "photoshop like" shortcuts option. Well, guess what no matter why you want that difference between the programs, we, the users, don't want it and for sure don't like it!

Someone tell you #adobe takes feedback from actual photographers; from people who really uses Lightroom.

I totally agree about LR being slow and needing a drastic upgrade in order to stay competitive compared to competition. Starting with perf, mobile integration, ...

But I don't think you can compare two sliders in two different softwares. What are the scales? What are considered highlights? You don't have the same curve in both images. Long story short: Yes, Adobe needs to update LR, but I don't think it's wise to "simply" compare two sliders having the same "name" :-)

Cheers!
