Today the Photoshop Camera Raw 5.5 plug-in and DNG Converter 5.5 Release Candidates were released by Adobe and are available immediately for download at http://labs.adobe.com. The update extends raw file support to four of the latest popular camera model releases, including the Nikon D300s, Nikon D3000, Olympus E-P1 and Panasonic DMC-FZ35. In addition, the Photoshop Camera Raw 5.5 Release Candidate also includes a correction to the demosaic algorithms in the raw conversion process for Bayer sensor cameras with unequal green response.
Adobe is providing these updates as release candidates to benefit from additional feedback from the community before publishing a final version on Adobe.com.
