KODAK PROFESSIONAL DCS Capture Studio is a MACINTOSH only application for managing and manipulating DCR files and optionally controlling digital camera backs tethered to a computer.

  • Open multiple images in windows with variable view scaling
  • Set and adjust cropping, balance, lighting, exposure compensation, look, sharpening, and noise reduction
  • Export images in standard TIFF or JPEG format
  • Add Job Tracker (IPTC) information to images
  • Set and adjust image tone, color balance and color saturation
  • Create a custom ICC profile for a DCS digital camera back
