    I'm one of those who still use Capture One version 8 and the news that they are to withdraw support has really irritated me to some extent. Not all of us can afford to keep on upgrading every time a new version comes out. I can understand that this happens with all software and we have to be prepared for it I suppose. However, this move has made me think twice because I may just switch to Light Room instead. I will continue to run 8 but if it starts playing up I will definitely move to Light Room. Grrrrr! :eek:

    The upgrade price is less than switching to LR. Why not upgrade?

    You may want to look into LR annual subscription cost as apposed to occasional upgrade of C1. Besides your workflow is already established C1.

    The UK upgrade price is £79.95 however, when upgrading myself I have managed to find some discount offers on the internet that reduced that by 10-15%. I think you will find many useful improvements for RAF files over V8 particularly, edge aware masking and focus check that actually works.

    I've been using C1P since version 8. Version 10 is so much better, especially with DAM, stability and Fuji RAW processing. Very happy.

    Upgrading should be a no brainer for everyone using version 8.

    Same thing happens with all software. If you like the software otherwise don’t cut off your nose to spite your face. Your time is worth something - is the price difference enough to warrant investing hundreds of hours learning a new system?

    Sorry but it needs to happens. If you are still using v8.x then you have had your moneys worth.
    You shouldnt need support at this stage.

    Okay guys, thanks for all the good advice. I will probably do the upgrade next month if it is still available. I'm glad I aired my discontent here. You are a great bunch of guys and gals.

    Keith you will find a heap of new features in v10.2 and you will really enjoy it when you install. Catalogs work now, as well as Sessions, which I still prefer.
