Adobe has released the Camera RAW 8.4 and Lightroom 5.4 updates for download, providing several bug fixes and support for new cameras among others.
After releasing Lightroom Mobile for iPad, Adobe has been “forced” to update the desktop version of the program in order to make it compatible with the mobile one.
The iPad version of Lightroom is available only for Creative Cloud subscribers, but this does not mean that there are not plenty of reasons to install the 5.4 update on your desktop.
Camera RAW 8.4 can be downloaded by both Photoshop CC and Photoshop CS6 users, but only the former are getting all the features while the latter will only receive support for new cameras and lenses.
Adobe Lightroom 5.4 update released for download with support for Nikon D4s and more cameras
Adobe Lightroom 5.4 update will fix a lot of bugs in the Develop and Book modules. The Import dialog is now consistent with Loupe view and the fullscreen mode now works properly with color profiles in slideshows and more.
The more important additions are support for new cameras, including the Nikon D4s, Nikon D3300, Fujifilm X-T1, and Sony A6000. The full list of newly-supported cameras is as follows:
- Canon 1200D / Rebel T5 / Kiss X70 and PowerShot G1X Mark II;
- Casio Exilim EX-100;
- DJI Phantom;
- Fujifilm X-T1;
- Hasselblad H5D-50c and HV;
- Nikon D4s, D3300, Coolpix P340, and 1 V3;

Adobe Camera RAW 8.4 update adds Pete Eye correction and many other improvements
Adobe Camera RAW 8.4 update comes packed with several new improvements. The Preview Controls have been upgraded and they have been substituted by a trio of new buttons. Mode is the first, followed by Swap, and Copy.
Other changes include a Pet Eye correction. According to Adobe, Camera RAW 8.4 is now capable of detecting red eyes in pet eyes.
The company has decided to add a simple way to reset to zero the local correction sliders, such as Exposure and Temperature. Now you can right-click on local adjustment slider and you will see an option saying “Reset Local Correction Settings”.
Radial Filter now includes a Fill Image tool, while the Synchronize, Save Settings, New Present, and Copy/Paste menus feature Check All and Check None options.
As for camera support, the update supports an identical list of devices as Lightroom 5.4. It is available for download right now, but only CC users are getting the updates, while CS6 users will get support for the new camera profiles, as stated above.
