17 July 2014

Adobe has announced the availability of Adobe Camera Raw 8.6 Release Candidate on Adobe Labs with support for the Nikon D810 and Panasonic GH4 and FZ1000.

According to the Lightroom Journal blog, an addition 19 new lens profiles are available in ACR 8.6. Canon, Nikon, Pentax, Phase One and Sony bodies are matched to various Canon, Tamron, Nikon 1, Tamron, Sigma, Sneider-Kreuznach, Sigma, Sony and Zeiss lenses in the new profiles.

There's more:

  • ACR 8.6 also includes camera matching color profiles for the Sony RX100 III/A7S/A77 II.
  • Photoshop CC customers using 64-bit systems will see improved performance when batch processing images via the Save button (in Camera Raw) and when converting images to DNG (in DNG Converter).

And there are a few bug fixes too:

  • Fix crash on launch in some cases on Hi DPI (Retina) systems.
  • Fix crash when opening some Sigma SD9 raw files.
  • Fix issue with JPEG images saved by Camera Raw not readable in some external applications.
  • Fix automatic lens profile selection for Leica M (Typ 240) when using most recent firmware version.
  • Fix issue with some Hasselblad H5D-50c and H5D-60 3FR raw images appearing slightly too dark. Unfortunately, this fix may affect the appearance of existing images captured with this combination of settings. It is recommended that you (1) purge the Camera Raw cache via the Camera Raw Preferences dialog, and (2) review previously captured images for unexpected brightness changes.
