(Wednesday, September 28, 2005 - 11:24 EDT)
Alongside its announcements of updated versions of Photoshop Elements and Premiere Elements yesterday, Adobe released another updated piece of software that didn't get a press release.
Adobe Camera Raw 3.2 adds raw file support for 13 cameras from six companies, two of them using Adobe's own DNG format. With this update, Adobe Camera Raw now supports a rather impressive 91 cameras from 15 companies.
Newly supported models in Camera Raw 3.2 include:
Owners of the Nikon D2X digital camera will be pleased to note that Camera Raw also now understands that camera's "As Shot" white balance, which is encrypted in the .NEF raw file. This support comes courtesy of an agreement between Nikon and Adobe to cooperate in the best interests of their users.
