  1. This program kicks Lightrooms butt when it comes to tethering. It is really fast to display photos where LR is slow. That said, it DOES NOT work with DNG files nor color profiles if you use an X-rite Passport. THAT SAID (pt2) it was designed to work with the big-ass files that come off the PhaseONE which is night and day compared to DSLRs. I use it with my DSLR when I need to see photos quickly. I really need to dive into its editing features which I haven’t had time to do yet.
