Adobe says the Lightroom 3.3 and Camera Raw 6.3 Release Candidates are now available for immediate download, along with a new Adobe Lens Profile Downloader.
The Release Candidates bring raw file support to new camera models including the Nikon D7000 and Canon Powershot S95, as well as lens profiles for 21 new Nikon lenses and four new Canon lenses. Release candidates have been thoroughly tested by developers and are already stable and robust versions, but they want a broader base of users to stamp their approval on the software being released.
The Lens Profile Downloader 1.0 – a free companion application to Lightroom 3, Photoshop CS5 and Camera Raw 6 – allows customers to search, download, rate and comment on over 300 lens correction profiles provided by the community. Photographers can create custom profiles for their own lenses and share them with the user community by downloading the Lens Profile Creator also available on Adobe Labs.
