Raw support for the following cameras has been added: Canon EOS 1200D, Casio EX-100, DJI Phantom, Fujifilm X-T1, Hasselblad H5D-50c/HV, Nikon D3300/D4S, Olympus OM-D E-M10 (preliminary support), Panasonic ZS40, Phase One IQ250, Samsung NX30 and Sony a5000/a6000.


Camera Raw 8.4 RC also includes a new preview mechanism, improving before/after image comparisons plus an improved set of color matching profiles for Fujifilm X-Trans cameras.

A few issues with the Camera Raw 8.3 release have also been corrected. More details are in the news release below.
