Adobe issues Lightroom 3.6 and ACR 6.6 release candidates

By dpreview staff on Nov 9, 2011 at 09:44 GMT

Adobe has released 'Release Candidates' of its Camera Raw 6.6 and Lightroom 3.6 raw processing software. The updates cover 5 additional cameras, namely the Canon Powershot S100, Nikon 1 J1, Nikon 1 V1, Panasonic Lumix DMX-GX1 and Samsung NX5. Also included are lens profiles for a number of recent Sigma and Nikon lenses, along with several medium format optics and the Sigma DP2x. Both updates are available from the Adobe Labs site. The company uses the term 'Release Candidate' to denote software that is well tested but not yet the final version.

The Canon S100 didn't come with a Canon RAW converter?

How do you like your S100? I'm tempted to get it rather than wait for the G13.

"The Canon S100 didn't come with a Canon RAW converter?"

Some would look at the bundled software and conclude that it does not. ;)

I've had my S100 for about ten days and the Adobe release candidate is like Christmas came early. Goodbye (again) JPG.

FJG3:

Okay, but then why not say the Canon RAW converter isn't very good? Instead of saying that you're stuck with jpgs?

I said I was stuck with JPG as the RAW software included with the camera just wasn't worth the trouble as the JPG's are very good and RAW sotfware is bare boned. That's all changed now with the Lightroom 3.6 release.

It comes with DPP which allows you to convert the RAW files to Tiffs.

I hope the x10 gets support before the final 6.6 release. Otherwise it will be a long wait for 6.7

I love LR and its tools. If the developers would add HDR function it would be perfect.
