Does anyone know when Capture one will support the new Nikon Z7?

Like always when a new camera gets out: in a future release after Phase One is having a Z7 and Z6 for their development ready. Phase One will not tell you when this will be the case.

I understand that, but am eagerly awaiting this. My Trichro is undergoing a repair [cracked screen], won't have an IQ4 for a while, leaving me with my D850, Z7, and an interesting Lumix G9 to do some comparisons. Not being able to include the Z7 RAW file in C1 is a bit frustrating. Not horribly so; just eagerly so.

I understand adobe DNG converter now supports (converts) Z7 raw files...

As such could one convert to DNG and then open and process in Capture 1?

Thanks

Come on Guys. Bought myself a great Nikon Z7 extra camera next to my 850 and 800e.
Without Capture one it feels like a worthless camera in my camera bag.
Can’t remember it took you so long with previous camera’s to build a new camera profile.
Thank you in advance but please hurry up.

Yes, you can, but the results aren't great - a bit flat with muted colours. You can apply the Nikon D850 profile, but it needs more work afterwards with the colour editor.

True, but that policy might be self-defeating if an impatient user spots that YouKnowWhat supports the new camera and decides to give it a go ...

Yes, I tried that, but not very satisfying.

Just watched Matt Granger's Field Tested review of the Z7. You may know he is a big CaptureOne supporter. All the processing of Z7 images in the review was done in C1. File types in the video were DNG, so I assume he used the Adobe DNG converter to get them into C1.

Another option, as we wait for C1 support: use Nikon's Capture NX-D to open the folder with Z7 NEFs, select one image and set the picture control to Neutral, then do a File - Batch export with 'use current adjustments' to create 16 bit TIFFs and import those into C1. Just be prepared to use a *lot* of disk space, the TIFFs are about 273MB each...

Yeah - that's a lot of disk space, and when C1 supports the NEF you'll probably delete them. A more practical option is just to use Lightroom. Sure, it sucks, but you can sort and rate your pictures, delete bad ones, do a bit of editing etc without chewing up whole disk farms,
