      Clairty in Capture One is more aimed at still life and architecture, it adds sharpness and contrast at the same time. Even though there’s settings that turn down details & textures, it still doesnt create the large format halo effect and makes skin look gross in my opinion, the ACR clarity is closer to Hasselblad clarity.

    Is there any advantage in taking a non hasselblad file into phocus to do a B&W conversion?
    I know you cannot use the clarity slider or the shadows but you can still access the green channel and curves or is it best just to ACR as here?

      I use both, sometimes I find I don’t need to play around with shadows and highlights but I prefer the way I can get the curves and B&W in Phocus. And sometimes I even process the image twice, once in Phocus and once in ACR and make them different layers so I can paint the different aspects of each into the photo
