FastRawViewer has released version 1.1 of its powerful cross-platform RAW photo manager and editor. In addition to improvements in speeds and stability, version 1.1 introduces a handful of new features to more efficiently import, browse and process your images.

One of the most welcomed additions to FastRawViewer 1.1 is a new folder panel, which allows you to more efficiently browse through your memory cards and hard drives, which now auto-mount when inserting them into your card reader. The update also adds the ability to unmount devices directly from the file directory.

Further refined is the processing power behind the RAW image engine, which lets you quickly and accurately assess and edit an image's exposure, dynamic range, focus and noise. 

Another improvement is the addition of a Filmstrip/Thumbnails preview section, which quickly displays the image previews and data extracted from the RAW files. This brings the interface much closer to more known post-processing application, such as Adobe Lightroom. 

FastRawViewer also brings along RAW support for the following cameras:

Canon: EOS 5DS, EOS 5DS R, EOS M2, EOS M3

Fujifilm: XQ2, X-A2

Nikon: D5500, D7200

Olympus: SH–2, TG–4

Panasonic: TZ70/71/ZS50

Pentax: K-S2

Samsung: NX500

Version 1.1 of FastRawViewer normally costs $19.99 for a two-computer license, but in honor of a major update, it’s dropped down to $14.99 through the end of May 2015. If you're hesitant on buying it, you can download a free 30-day trial, even if you've used up a trial in the past.
