Adobe tests new Canon, Olympus raw support
Release candidates for Lightroom 2.7 and Photoshop Camera Raw 5.7 test support for Canon's T2i, Olympus' E-PL1, and Panasonic's G2 and G10, among others.
Those eyeing Olympus's new high-end compact camera, the E-P1, now can get support for those cameras' raw images in Adobe Systems' Lightroom and Photoshop--though only as a release candidate for now., or
Adobe releases occasional updates so its software can decode the proprietary raw image formats from many higher-end cameras., but they require manual processing to convert them into a useful form.
And software companies such as Adobe and Apple must stay on top of a constant stream of new cameras that shoot raw. The new release candidates of Lightroom 2.7 and the Camera Raw 5.7 plug-in for Photoshop support the following cameras:
Canon Digital Rebel T2i (known as EOS 550D in Europe and EOS Kiss X4 Digital in Asia)
Leaf Aptus-II 8
Leaf Aptus-II 10R
Adobe also issued a release candidate for DNG Converter 5.7, a utility that converts raw photos into Adobe's Digital Negative format.
