Bibble labs today announced the latest update to its RAW workflow software, with many recent cameras now supported. Also added was the ability to tether Nikon DSLRs to the latest Intel-based Macs - a feature hitherto reserved for those running Windows or an earlier PowerPC machine. The update is free to licensees of Bibble 4.x but anyone purchasing for the first time ($129.95 for Pro, $69.95 for Lite) will receive version 5 free of charge when it is released - a 14 day trial is also up for grabs from the Bibble site.

Press release:

Bibble Pro Version 4.9.9 Adds Nikon D300, D3, Canon 1Ds Mark 3, G9 and more

Also supports E-3, Sony A700, and adds Tethering Support for Intel Mac's with Nikon dSLR's.

Austin, Tx (Dec 17, 2007) - Bibble Labs, Inc. announced immediate availability of version 4.9.9 of its "Pro" and "Lite" RAW workflow software. New cameras added in this release include Nikon D300 and D3, Canon 1Ds Mark 3 and G9, Sony Alpha A700, and Olympus E-3. This release also adds tethered shooting support for all Nikon SLR's on Intel Macs (PowerPC Macs and Windows were already supported). This latest update is free for all current Bibble 4 customers, and new customers will also receive a free upgrade to Bibble 5, when available.

"Nikon's newest digital SLR's represent a monumental step forward," says Eric Hyman, President and CEO of Bibble Labs. "We're thrilled to support all the various RAW file formats from these new landmark digital SLR's, including 12- and 14-bit RAW, uncompressed, compressed, and lossless compressed RAW files." Tethering support for Nikons now extends to newer Intel-based Mac's, including those running Leopard. Hyman continues "We're exited to be able to support so many new cameras just released for the holiday season."

Bibble Pro is the most comprehensive cross-platform RAW Workflow application available today, including robust support for the latest cameras and offering Best-in-Class image quality with features such as tethered shooting, Noise Ninja technology, Perfectly Clear automated image optimization and the industry's only RAW-Level plug-in interface. The Bibble Pro plug-in for Adobe Photoshop supports CS2, CS, and version 7 - providing native access to the latest camera formats otherwise inaccessible in these older versions of Photoshop. Bibble Pro also remains the fastest RAW converter in existence.

Bibble Labs has been focused on developing its next landmark application, Bibble 5. Bibble 5 has been greatly influenced by feedback and suggestions from our existing users and will extend all of the advantages that Bibble 4 has built over the last several years while adding unique and innovative features.

Bibble is available in both “Pro” ($129.95) and “Lite” ($69.95) versions for Windows, Macintosh (PPC/Intel as a Universal Binary) and Linux.
