With the introduction of Capture One 11.3 today, two new running modes are added for a specific camera brand: Fujifilm.

Capture One Express Fujifilm (free) and Capture One Pro Fujifilm (paid, subscription) are now available.

Similar to the Sony modes the Express mode has a limited feature set but with the same well-known image quality. The Pro mode adds many features like layers and tethered support.

Interesting news is the support of the Fujifilm GFX 50S.

Creating and Using Lens Profiles
Capture One Pro has hundreds of lens for files for most popular lenses. Canon, Nikon, Phase One, Fuji, Mamiya, Sony , Zeiss, Tamron, Rodenstock, Hasselblad, and many more. Adobe also has many lenses covered. If your lens is not covered or you think you can do better you can create your own. 
In my work I use the CaptureOne Complete Universal Calibration kit. The kit contains two plastic opaque plates that you use to create your image that is used by Capture One to create the custom profile. 
You set your cameras exposure and then open up two stops using the shutter speed. Then take the photo with the plate over the lens. Import this image into Capture One Pro and use the LCC tool to create a custom profile. After creation process the image is tagged with LCC. Then you select the profile and images you want it profiled with and select apply.
If you include a plate in your image you can use it to adjust the white balance. 
Using Lens Profiles by John Paul Caponigro is a good read if you are using Adobe products.
You can find the LCC Profile Kit at
You can also purchase the kit at
