Wondering where the DNG Converter companion update to Camera Raw 5.3 is? It took a day longer, but it's now available.
Adobe has released both Mac and Windows versions of its free DNG Converter 5.3 to convert Raw files from more than 200 cameras to its Digital Negative format.
The new version includes support for the Nikon D3X and Olympus E-30.
The Mac download is 42.3MB.
The Windows download is 35.9MB.
The utility is a clever workaround for supporting new cameras in older versions of Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom. Simply convert the new Raw files to DNG and you can open them in older software that is not compatible with the required version of Camera Raw for their Raw file support.
