I had a good meeting today with the Phase One team in Copenhagen.
I'm optimistic about the development of the product, although we probably won't see new software being released very soon.

Has Phase One acquired Expression Media only or also Yan and EM team?

It's the product and code that they've acquired. We don't know what's happening to Yan and others (and I'll not speculate on their personal affairs).

I hope they will also take care of a third group of users:

Those who use EM, but use a different RAW software. While Capture 1 is great, I like DPP's conversions better.

Robert,
While I don't know what they wiil end up doing, I can say that at the top level of the company, they understand the issue, including the implications that it would have on their user base, if they were to drop such support. I believe they also realize that their position in the market as a trusted partner for professional photographers and others in our ecosystem would be damaged by the removal of functionality that enables cross-application workflow.

Peter,

I'd see such a move as a smart move by Phase One.

While I'm currently using DPP only, I always scan other options - and so do many other professionals.

There's never a final word on one's choice of software.

If they leave DPP support in, they keep me in contact with Capture One. (I just sent in the request for the free update for Capture One 5, and I'm definitely going to give it another look.)

And you know what I say about DAM being a life of serial monogamy.....

PhaseOne would be crazy to limit the type of files that can be catalogued. I think it's a possibility - in the exchanges I've had with them, they seemed to think that if you couldn't see a thumbnail/preview of a file then it was pointless getting it in iView. I had to point out that even if you could only see a system icon, you could still manage and find the file. But it's always harder to take features away, and I know others have received feedback indicating they would continue to serve iView's existing market. Whether that same loyal user base is still there, who knows?
