Adobe Camera Release 8.5 update adds support for five new cameras, including the Olympus OM-D E-M10 shown here.

Adobe has announced Camera Raw 8.5 Release Candidates, which includes support for five new digital cameras and several different lenses. This latest plug-in adds support for the Panasonic Lumix GH4, Olympus OM-D E-M10, Canon Powershot G1 X Mark II, Fujifilm FinePix S1, and Nikon’s 1 V3 and 1 J4.

Owners of these cameras will be able to edit their Raw image files natively in Photoshop CS6 and Photoshop Creative Cloud, though the Camera Raw 8.5 update is still an early release candidate. Creative Cloud will get some extras. They’ll be able to apply graduated neutral density and radial filter masks with brushes, add mask visualizations to those filters, and see a new per-panel preview default toggle. This update does not include Lightroom, and it’s not officially supported on Mac OS 10.6.x (Snow Leopard), Windows XP, and Windows Vista.

Additionally, there are bug fixes, and the following lens profiles have been added to the Camera Raw 8.5 RC:

Adobe updates Lightroom and Camera Raw for iOS and desktops
adobe updates camera raw lightroom mobile ios technology preview

Today, Adobe has released a trio of updates to its photography software across all platforms. Lightroom, Lightroom Mobile, and Adobe Camera Raw have all received updates that bring along new features, updated tools, and overall better performance.
Lightroom CC 2015.8
Starting with the desktop version of Lightroom, Adobe has included a new "Reference View" within the develop module that lets you compare two different images in order to create a consistent aesthetic across the two photos. You can set each photo individually by dragging and dropping them into the Reference View panel.

Lightroom also receives a minor update in the form of better fit and fill modes. Now, you can zoom to fit and zoom to fill within Lightroom, which should make sizing photos for editing a bit easier.

Trio of Adobe updates makes RAW edits universally accessible across mobile devices
adobe lightroom android 22 raw support lightroommobile

Lightroom’s Android version now boasts the same RAW file compatibility as the desktop version. Adobe on Wednesday announced a series of mobile and web updates, including a major Lightroom update, as well as the addition of collages to the iOS version of Photoshop Express.

Lightroom Android 2.2 now supports camera RAW files — and not just the DNGs shot with the app’s camera. While the camera mode in Android’s Lightroom app gained DNG capability in 2015, the app wasn’t capable of opening files from dedicated cameras — a feature that the iOS version gained over the summer. With the update, the list of compatible cameras is the now same long list that the full desktop version supports.

Adobe says Canon Dual Pixel RAW support coming to Lightroom, eventually
canon eos 5d mark iv hr markiv feat

While Adobe is usually quick to add compatibility to the latest camera releases, Canon’s new Dual Pixel RAW technology, which allows minor optical error fixes to be made in post, had many photographers wondering if Photoshop Lightroom would ever support that feature.  In a statement to CNET, Adobe confirmed that the feature would be making its way into an update -- eventually.

The Canon EOS 5D Mark IV is piquing the interest of many photographers for several reasons, but one key feature is the Dual Pixel RAW file format. While the feature nearly doubles the file’s footprint to 72 megabytes, the new format allows photographers to make very small focus adjustments in post (so small that Canon didn’t actually describe it as a focus adjustment).
