Capture One Capture Pilot Tool
The other day when on LSdigi.com's site I noticed that he was commenting that a user/creative could view and rate a previous Capture folder. That got me the thinking about the Capture One Pilot Tool and how to set it up.
The default folder is the current capture folder. So if Capture Folder is selected the web server and Capture Pilot images displayed will follow the current Capture Folder. Great if you have server capture folders and switch between them.
The thing that I never thought of is shooting to one folder and displaying another. Point in case is having someone like a creative review and rate one folder while you shoot into another. 
With Capture One Pro you can display any folder that is in your Session Folders, Session Favorites and Session Albums.

In my effort to practice social distancing I have acquired an Area 51 Tether Co 31' USB-C Tether cable. This cable will allow the computer to be a safe distance from the camera.
Extra-long length to go further distances without needing to use additional multiple cables or extensions.
Performs seamlessly without the need for any additional power supply when using a late 2016 Mac or newer computer model with USB-C.

I have setup and tested the new Barcode Tool of Capture One Enterprise 20.
Capture One Enterprise has aBarcode Tool where you define and setup your barcode reader. The reader can be BlueTooth, USB attached or WiFi. A barcode reader is seen to the OS as a keyboard. 
Once setup you can use the barcode token to enter the input from the reader into the file name. So The process is to scan the barcode and then shoot the image(s) and when you are ready to switch subjects you shoot another barcode and then the subject and so on.
In this first example I am shooting a product and have scanned the barcode result has ended up in the Barcode tool and in the File naming. In this case the barcode for the Whisky is 009016017668.
In this example I setup a list of headshot client names. As just like the first example I scan the person's name and then shoot the images.  Setting up the clients people's names ahead of time will increase your accuracy and speed up your production. This also saves from having other lists or including name boards in the shoot.
The font for producing the barcode text is Archon Code 39 Barcode. 
Let me create a specialized workflow for your next shoot.

Phase One announces Phase One Lab
Phase One Lab, DualExposure+, and the Death of Digital Noise
I am really excited about this new feature and the direction that Phase One is taking.
What is Phase One Lab?
Phase One Lab is a new setting available on the IQ4 150MP digital back (as of now, Lab mode is available on all IQ4 backs, but the current tools are exclusive to the 150MP sensor).
Activating Lab mode unlocks new creative tools before they are officially released in finalized firmware. We expect most of these features to be computational imaging based — improving image quality via digital processing, rather than upgrading hardware. With over 10 times the power of any previous digital back, the IQ4’s on-board computer is primed to generate composite images from multiple exposures. 
Frame Averaging, released in one of the earliest IQ4 firmware updates, was the first example of this, and the first Lab feature, DualExposure+, works in a similar way.
What is DualExposure+?
DualExposure+ is a feature that can dramatically increase dynamic range, reduce noise, and improve shadow detail in images by blending data from two overlapping electronic shutter captures. In short, the feature takes two captures around 3 stops apart, and uses the brighter capture to fill in shadow detail in the darker image when processed in Capture One.
DualExposure+ relies on the electronic shutter, so a tripod is still critical, and rapid movements across large parts of the frame can cause rolling shutter effects, but subtle movements like water, leaves, and crowds render just fine (as you’ll see later). When the tool is activated, the first exposure is set by the user, while a second exposure, 3 stops brighter, is automatically captured before the first exposure ends. This results in two raw files, essentially exposed simultaneously.

I offer many different combinations of on site capture equipment. Tethering is always the best way to go. I this shoot Rick & I started with MacBook Pro on a rolling stand to get the basic shot setup. After that we started using the Inovativ cart with a 27" Eizo monitor to give us and other creatives a larger view and will allow us to fine tune the images right out of the camera.
MacBook Pro 16", 27" Eizo monitor, external backup disk and UPS. The ultimate studio setup.
Capture Pilot on a 12.9" iPad Pro for client viewing.
MacBook Pro 16" on a rolling stand powered by TetherTools Onsite Power battery solution. Excellent for studio and on location shoots.

Managing Clipping in RAW files
The best tool for examining actual clipping, not clipping due to some rendering of the raw, is RawDigger. Actual clipping is something you want to avoid through actual exposure (assuming you are clipping data you don't wish to clip, again through actual exposure which is solely an attribute of aperture and shutter).

Phase One has a new firmware update for the IQ4. 
Automated Frame Averaging effectively enables the capture of long exposure images without the need for filters. This new type of sequencing tool automatically captures and combines a series of images into a single RAW file, which reduces noise, extends dynamic range, and protects highlights.
Shoot with your own Custom IQ Styles
Create your own Capture One Styles and upload them directly to the IQ4 to embed in captured images. Shoot with your own unique style applied for immediate visual feedback and confirmation of creative direction, or to gain early client buy-in.
Refined storage and workflow flexibility
Truly customize your capture workflow and image storage. Gain more image storage flexibility with SD as your primary storage, SD as XQD overflow storage, and direct to Capture One image transfer. For an even more refined workflow, the Exposure Zone Tool is made available in the IQ4.
June 24, 2019
There will be a firmware release for your IQ4150 on July 1st which will give the following 3 features. 
Automatic Frame Averaging
Personal styles
Generate a style in C1, add it to one of three custom slots on the back
Allows styles that include:
Exposure, Contrast, Brightness. Saturation
Levels, Curves, Color Editor, Color Balance
Clarity, Highlight/Shadow
SD can now be used for the primary storage of raw files; most of the time you'd still want to use XQD because it's faster
SD can now be used as "rollover storage" in the case XQD fills up
When shooting tethered, if you disconnect (on purpose or accidentally) and then later reconnect, the images shot to card in between will be automatically transferred.

Digital Transitions and Phase One announce Capture One Studio
Capture One has been the industry-standard tethering and raw processing software for more than a decade. And while Capture One gained that position through its unmatched quality and rich feature set, Phase One recognized that multi-user corporate studios that run numerous simultaneous shoots with multiple photographers needed additional features and tools specific to that unique workflow. The launch of Capture One Studio directly addresses those needs.
Capture One Studio Exclusive Features Include:
X-Rite Color Camera Profile Creation: Create ICC profiles for your cameras directly inside of Capture One</li>
Multi-angle workflow solution: Easily handle packshots from multiple cameras, including view naming
Integrated Barcode scanner: Basic and Advanced mode for naming assets as they are captured
Workspace and Tool Locks: Prevents the user from changing layout or settings, allowing the studio manager to set up all the stations and then lock them.
Secure Copy / Backup: Backs up captures (from tethered camera) to a destination chosen by the user. During high-value shoots every tethered capture can be automatically backed up to another location.
Hot folder Actions: Software automatically picks up images incoming from tethered connection and process them to a destination chosen by the user
