Adobe's logo. Click here to visit the Adobe website! Adobe Camera Raw, DNG Converter, Bridge updated (UPDATED)
(Wednesday, June 2, 2010 - 14:49 EDT)

Adobe has now published updated versions of its Camera Raw plugin for Photoshop CS5 / Elements 8, as well as its DNG Converter and Bridge applications.

The Camera Raw and DNG Converter updates finalize the release candidate versions issued a little over a fortnight ago. DNG Converter 6.1 includes just one change, adding support for the Olympus E-600 digital SLR. Adobe Camera Raw 6.1, which is applicable only to Photoshop CS5, Photoshop Elements 8.0, and Premiere Elements 8.0, includes this same change, along with a number of others. The Camera Raw 6.1 update enables the company's new lens correction functionality, adds support for the same raft of new camera models as in the recent Camera Raw 5.7 update for Photoshop CS4, improves control and scrolling responsiveness, and fixes a bug that could cause a program crash on the Mac platform. Adobe Bridge CS5 4.0.1, meanwhile, enables the export panel and includes several unspecified bug fixes.

Adobe's new lens correction functionality allows profile-based correction of geometric distortion, chromatic aberration, and lens vignetting. It also allows manual correction of geometric distortion and vertical / horizontal perspective. Users can create their own lens profiles with Adobe's freely available Lens Profile Creator, and a limited number of lens profiles are included by default.

The full list of new camera models supported by Camera Raw 6.1 is as follows:

  • Canon EOS 550D (aka Canon Rebel T2i / Canon EOS Kiss X4)

  • Kodak EasyShare Z981

  • Leaf Aptus-II 8

  • Leaf Aptus-II 10R

  • Mamiya DM40

  • Olympus E-PL1

  • Olympus E-600
  • Panasonic G2

  • Panasonic G10

  • Sony A450

UPDATED 2010-06-03 14:15et: Another Bridge CS5 update has been released, taking the current version to 4.0.2. No information has been provided as to how this update differs from Bridge 4.0.1.
