Adobe Logo

Adobe Systems Inc has issued the Camera Raw 6.1 ‘release candidate’ for testing. Anyone who wants to take part in the testing may download the pre-release version from their website. The ‘release candidate’ label indicates that the plug-in is well tested but would benefit from additional community testing before it is distributed automatically to customers.

Adobe Camera Raw 6.1 includes new profile-based lens corrections for geometric distortions, chromatic aberration and lens vignette effects. Manual corrections for geometric distortion as well as vertical and horizontal perspective transforms are also available.

ACR 6.1 also adds support to new cameras including:

• Canon EOS 550D (Digital Rebel T2i/ EOS Kiss X4 Digital)
• Kodak Z981
• Leaf Aptus-II 8
• Leaf Aptus-II 10R
• Mamiya DM40
• Olympus E-PL1
• Olympus E-600
• Panasonic G2
• Panasonic G10
• Sony A450
