Adds support for popular camera models

Adobe has announced three new software updates, Lightroom 2.6, Photoshop Camera Raw 5.6 and DNG Converter 5.6. Originally posted as trial updates for community testing, the final versions offer added RAW file support for 20 popular camera models including the Nikon D3s, Canon EOS 7D, and Leaf Aptus II 5, as well as DNG support for Leica M9 and Ricoh GXR camera models.

In addition, the updaes provide bug fixes for PowerPC issues with older versions of Lightroom and Camera RAW. According to the company, the PowerPC problem involves constructing full color images and addresses sensors with unequal green response -- this has the potential to create artifacts in the highlight area while using the Highlight Recovery tool in raw files from Sony, Panasonic, Olympus and other medium format digital camera backs.

The updates also bring additional camera support for Panasonic FZ38, Sony A500, Sony A550 and Canon EOS 1D Mark IV models.

While all three updates are available to download from Adobe's support section, Lightroom 2.6 is a free upgrade for users running Lightroom 2 or higher, Camera 5.6 is free for current Photoshop CS4, Photoshop Elements 8, or Premiere Elements 8 users, and the new DNG update is free for all users.
