Adobe Announces Camera Raw 8.4 Release Candidates

Adobe Announces Camera Raw 8.4 Release Candidates

Adobe Raw users rejoice! We have a list of new release candidates for you to take a look at. With known issues going around with Camera Raw, it is nice to see some updates getting pushed live. Adobe has also updated their software to recognize new cameras, like the Rebel T5, the Nikon D4S (yup, the unreleased camera is indeed on there) and the new Panazonic Lumix DMC-ZS40 among others.

Along with the release candidate there is a new preview mechanism for better before and after image comparisons. This is great for anyone even if they did not notice any issues with this before. One of the more different updates that I've seen is the new "Pet Eye Correction" which can apparently correct bright pupils in animals with the Red Eye Tool. Animal lovers rejoice? On top of all that,there will be an improved set of color matching profiles for Fujifilm X-Trans cameras which corrects issues reported from the Camera Raw 8.3 release.

So, what cameras are actually on the release list?

  • Canon EOS 1200D (REBEL T5, KISS X70)
  • Casio EX-100
  • DJI Phantom
  • Fujifilm X-T1
  • Hasselblad H5D-50c
  • Hasselblad HV
  • Nikon D3300
  • Nikon D4S
  • Olympus OM-D E-M10
  • Panasonic LUMIX DMC-ZS40 (DMC-TZ60, DMC-TZ61)
  • Phase One IQ250
  • Samsung NX30
  • Sony Alpha a5000 (ILCE-5000)
  • Sony Alpha a6000 (ILCE-6000)

You read that right: the Nikon D4S is indeed on that list, which means we can probably expect an official announcement any time now.

what ever happened to the recovery slider? I noticed it had disappeared when upgrading to CC

Dude just drag down the highlights.

That slider disappeared a while ago, exactly when the Adobe 2012 color calibration process was introduced at the end of 2011.

Recovery was replaced by Highlights and whites in CS6. It died with CS5.
