i switched to capture 1 from lightroom/ps because i didn’t want to pay a subscription anymore. but what happened to me at least, i would be forced to update capture 1 every year because they totally abandon previous versions and i tend to buy new cameras and the older versions don’t support the new cameras. either way im paying monthly or yearly. adobe seems to be the quickest to support new cameras. dxo is good too, i have purchased many versions but you basically have to update each year again if you have anything new. and dxo is very slow to add new camera support.
