Adobe has released a pair of updates, one is Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 1.2, the other Camera Raw 4.2.
Both updates are available now. They provide raw file support for 14 additional camera models and camera backs within Lightroom and Camera Raw, including the popular Canon EOS 40D.
This camera raw functionality provides simple access to the raw image formats produced by many digital cameras.
Lightroom and the Camera Raw plug-in also support the same functionality for TIFF and JPEG files. Professional photographers can now quickly and easily import and manipulate raw data from the latest DSLR cameras.
Lightroom 1.2 and the new Camera Raw 4.2 plug-in support 14 additional digital cameras including the Canon EOS 40D; Fuji FinePix IS-1; Leaf Aptus 17, 54s and 75s; Olympus EVOLT E-510; Panasonic DMC-FZ18; Pentax K100D Super; Phase One P 20+, P 21+, P 25+, P 30+ and P 45+; and Sony A700.
Both updates also include improved noise reduction for Bayer patterned sensors, providing better image detail at default noise reduction values.
The updates are available from Adobe's website.
