Camera Raw 5.2 available

Photoshop CS4 users should install this update to the Camera Raw plugin. The standalone DNG converter was also updated to 5.2. If you do not have Photoshop CS4 you can use the DNG Converter to convert raw files from newer camera models to DNG so that they can be imported into Lightroom 1.

New in this release:

  • Targeted Adjustment Tool for on image adjustments
  • Output sharpening for print or screen output
  • Snapshots for saving all settings in a single reference
  • Camera Profiles for enhanced raw file interpretation now available in the Calibration panel

Newly supported camera models:

  • Canon EOS 5D Mark II
  • Canon PowerShot G10
  • Panasonic DMC-G1**
  • Panasonic DMC-FX150**
  • Panasonic DMC-FZ28**
  • Panasonic DMC-LX3**
  • Leica D-LUX 4**

Tom Hogarty stated on Lightroom Journal that "Lightroom will be updated to version 2.2 in December to provide the equivalent camera support."
