Adobe has announced the final releases for Camera RAW 5.5 for Photoshop CS4, and Lightroom 2.5 for Lightroom 2.
Some improvements have been made and the following camera models are now supported in the current version/s:
- Nikon D300s
- Nikon D3000
- Olympus E-P1
- Panasonic DMC-FZ35
- Panasonic DMC-GF1
(**Note that in Europe and Japan this model is marketed as the DMC-FZ38. Unfortunately, due to a metadata difference between these cameras, files from the DMC-FZ38 will *not* be supported until the next Camera Raw and Lightroom updates.)
For those who haven’t been keeping up, Adobe truncated the name of Adobe Camera RAW to merely Camera RAW. As might be said in some asian countries, “Same, same.”
* Camera Raw 5.5 and Lightroom 2.5 include a correction to the demosaic algorithms for Bayer sensor cameras with unequal green response. Olympus, Panasonic and Sony are among the more popular camera manufacturers affected by this change. But the demosaic correction provides only a subtle visual improvement to the processing of those raw files.
* Lightroom 2.5 corrects for the following problem in Lightroom 2.4. Lightroom 2.4 on Windows continued to display the import dialog when a memory card was detected regardless of the preference setting “Show import dialog when a memory card is detected.”
