Release Candidate Lightroom 3.3.... GOOD news!


I just imported a bunch of files in LR3.3 RC, and to my stupefaction saw a RAW hanging there...

It happens it's the one I mistakenly overwrote when doing my unsuccessful tests changing EXIF data with 3.2!

So to recapitulate:
LR3.2: No way to import an A580 RAW, even messing with EXIF.

LR3.3 RC: No official A580 support, but they have definitely fixed something, and now it IS possible to import A580 RAWs, by editing the SonyModelID metadata tag and replacing it with the A55's!

To do so:

Once it has gone through all the ARW files in the folder, you can import them into LR3.3 RC

You can then move both exiftool.exe and exiftool_a55.bat to another folder and go on.
