Our friend Uwe Steinmueller at the Digital Outback Photo website has posted a review of Adobe's Camera Raw 2.0, Adobe's plugin for converting raw files from a variety of digital camera manufacturers.
The original Adobe Camera Raw was a plugin for Photoshop 7 that cost $99. Adobe Camera Raw 2.0 is bundled with the new Adobe Photoshop CS, and currently supports a whopping 34 digital cameras from 6 manufacturers (the full list can be seen here. Uwe concludes:
"Camera Raw has come a long way to become one of the dominating raw converters in the market. That it comes free with CS makes it hard to compete for other solutions as many serious photographers will upgrade to CS anyway.
