Software adds support for new Canon, Panasonic cameras
Adobe has posted initial release candidates for two upcoming software updates, Lightroom 4.2 and Camera Raw 7.2. In both cases the updates add RAW compatibility for several cameras, such as Canon's EOS 650D (Rebel T4i) and EOS M, and Panasonic's FZ200, G5, and LX7. Other newly-supported cameras include the Fuji FinePix F800EXR, Nikon 1 J2, Pentax K-30, Sony DSC-RX100, and Leaf's Credo 40 and 60 medium-format backs.
The code also fixes some bugs discovered in previous updates. Lightroom is Adobe's RAW workflow software, aimed mainly at professional photographers. Camera Raw is a component of Photoshop, the company's flagship editing tool; v7.2 is intended only for Photoshop CS6.
