Camera Raw 8.8 now available

Adobe have released Camera Raw 8.8 for Photoshop CS6 and Photoshop CC. DNG Converter 8.8 is provided for all Lightroom customers and Photoshop customers using versions of Photoshop older than Photoshop CS6.

The following cameras are now supported:

  • Casio EX-ZR3500
  • Canon EOS 750D (Rebel T6i, Kiss X8i) (*)
  • Canon EOS 760D (Rebel T6s, Kiss 8000D) (*)
  • Fujifilm X-A2
  • Fujifilm XQ2
  • Hasselblad Stellar II
  • Nikon D5500
  • Olympus OM-D E-M5 II
  • Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF7
  • Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS50 (DMC-TZ70, DMC-TZ71)

(*) denotes preliminary support. Camera Matching color profiles for these models will be added in a future release.

What is not known as this time is if Camera Raw 8.8 supports the High Resolution feature of the Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark II.

As usual a whole raft of Lens Profiles have been released for the following manufacturers/mounts:

  • Canon
  • DJI
  • Leica
  • MFT – Voigtlander
  • Nikon F
  • Pentax
  • Sigma
  • Sony Alpha
  • Sony E
  • Yuneec

It’s good to see more unusual mount lenses being added to the list of lens profiles such as DJI, but who is “Yuneec”? That said, the lack of any lens profiles for Olympus’s lenses are notable by their absence!

A full list of the lens profiles can be found over at Adobe’s Lightroom Journal website.

Finally a number of bug fixes have been added to this release:

  • Fixed issue with magenta highlights when processing Canon EOS 70D raw files at some ISO settings
  • Fixed issue where vignette correction introduced banding for Voigtlander VM 21mm f/1.8 Ultron
  • Fixed vignette overcorrection at certain focus distances for Pentax FA645 MACRO 120mm F4
  • Fixed issue where vignette correction introduced banding at wider focal lengths for Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 24-85mm f/3.5-4.5G ED VR
  • Fixed EXIF name for Zeiss OTUS 85mm f/1.4 (Canon and Nikon mount)
  • Fixed vignette overcorrection for Zeiss Distagon T 1,4_35 ZM
  • Updated lens profile to reflect firmware changes to SIGMA 150-600mm F5-6.3 DG OS HSM S014

The entry over at the Lightroom Journal finishes with this statement:

Lightroom Customers –
If you’re using one of the newly supported cameras listed above, please download the DNG Converter. We’re working to add support to these cameras and they will be added in the next Lightroom release.

This will be in Lightroom 6 which should be released in March this year so in the the next couple of weeks.
