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:

Help NASA in its quest to learn more about our sun
Scientists have used the ESA/NASA Solar Orbiter’s Extreme Ultraviolet Imager (EUI) in a new mode of operation to record part of the Sun’s atmosphere that has been almost impossible to image until now. By covering the Sun’s bright disc with an ‘occulter’ inside the instrument, EUI can detect the million-times fainter ultraviolet light coming from the surrounding corona.
