Adobe supports Nikon D750, Sony A5100, Fuji X30 in new Camera Raw release candidate

Just picked up a shiny new Nikon D750, Sony A5100 or Fuji X30, and want some Adobe Photoshop to handle your raw files? Now it can, thanks to new release candidates of Adobe Camera Raw and DNG Converter that also add support for five other camera and camera back models from Casio, Leaf, Leica, Panasonic and Sony. A total of 16 new lens profiles are also included, supporting lenses from HandeVision, Leica, Pentax, SLR Magic, Sony, Tokina and Voigtländer on a variety of mounts.

The Adobe Camera Raw 8.7 release candidate is available in versions compatible with both the subscription-only Creative Cloud and own-it-for-life Creative Suite 6 versions of Photoshop, while photographers shooting with earlier DNG-aware versions of Photoshop can still get raw support by first converting their images in DNG Converter 8.7 release candidate.

If you're paying to subscribe to Adobe Photoshop Creative Cloud, the new release candidate version of Camera Raw will also add support for HiDPI screens on the Windows platform, although there are known issues with the Camera Raw dialog losing its scaling capability unless Photoshop is relaunched, and with UI flashing / redraw in certain operations. Three bug fixes are also included: a Spot Removal tool-related crash bug, a Filter Brush display bug, and problematic profiles for the Nikon D810.

For users of Photoshop CS6, these new features are of course disabled, as Adobe no longer supports the final non-subscription release of its Photoshop app beyond new camera support.
