Today Adobe releases updates for its popular image editing programs Lightroom 4 and Photoshop CS6 to support for the latest digital cameras and lens profile data. Lightroom version 4.4 update can be applied to any version of Adobe Lightroom 4.x, while Adobe CS6 can be updated to latest Adobe Camera Raw version 7.4. Users of previous versions of these programs (Lightroom 3 and CS5 and earlier) will not be able to install the latest updates, but can use the new DNG Converter 7.4 to convert RAW files to the DNG format to open files from the latest cameras.
New camera support added in Lightroom 4.4 and Adobe Camera Raw 7.4 include the Nikon D7100, Nikon 1 J3 and S1, Nikon Coolpix A and preliminary support for the Nikon Coolpix P330.
New lens profile data is included for the latest Nikon and third-party Nikon mount lenses including the Nikon Nikkor 70-200mm f/4 VR and Nikkor 1 18.5mm f/1.8. Third-party lens profiles for Sigma 35mm f/1.4 DG, Tamron 70-200mm f/2.8 Di VC and Tamrom 90mm f/2.8 Di Marco VC are also included in the udpates.
The updates fix some minor bugs, improve performance and include revised white balance defaults for old generation Nikon DSLR (D2X, D2Xs, D2Hs, D200, D40, D50 and D80).
