Adobe has released for download the Camera RAW 8.7 update for Photoshop CC and the Camera RAW 8.7 RC version for Photoshop CS6 users with support for the new Nikon D750 and several other cameras.
If you have bought yourself a new camera announced at Photokina 2014, then there is a good chance that it is not currently supported by your favorite RAW image editing software.
Thankfully, Adobe is working around the clock in order to provide continuous updates that will support the latest cameras and lenses released on the market.
In order to make sure that you will be able to properly edit your shots, the company has just released the Camera RAW 8.7 update for Photoshop CC and the Camera RAW 8.7 RC for Photoshop CS6, respectively.
Adobe Camera RAW 8.7 RC update only brings new camera and lens support for Photoshop CS6 users
When the Creative Suite has been abandoned, Adobe has decided to move over to the Creative Cloud. As a result, Photoshop CS6 users will only get limited support, which consists of compatibility with new cameras and lens profiles.
As a result, the changelog Camera RAW 8.7 Release Candidate version for Photoshop CS6 only includes support for some new products.
According to Adobe, the newly-supported cameras are Nikon D750, Sony A5100, Sony QX1, Fujifilm X30, Mamiya Leaf Credo 50, Panasonic GM1S, Casio EX-100PRO, and Leica V-Lux Typ 114.
As for the new lens profiles, the list includes the Tokina AT-X 11-16mm f/2.8 PRO for Canon and Nikon DSLRs, HandeVision Ibelux 40mm f/0.85 for Fujifilm X-mount and Sony E-mount cameras, and the SLR Magic 50mm T0.95 Hyperprime Cine for Leica M-mount and Sony E-mount cameras.
Furthermore, the Zeiss FE 16-35mm f/4 ZA OSS for Sony FE-mount cameras is supported, too, while the HD Pentax DA 645 28-45mm f/4.5 ED AW SR for Pentax 645-series cameras is also compatible with this software.
Photoshop CS6 users can download Camera RAW 8.7 RC update at Adobe’s official website.
Photoshop CC subscribers will notice a performance improvement as of Camera RAW 8.7 RC version
If you are a Photoshop CC user, then you are getting a few extra improvements when compared to the CS6 users. Adobe has confirmed that Intel and AMD processors released in 2011 or later are better supported, so image editors should notice an increase in performance.
For Windows users with HiDPI screens, the Camera RAW dialog will be scaled when the UI scale is set to 200%. The company says that this leads to some issues, which could force photographers to re-launch Photoshop CC after enabling the setting.
Additionally, HiDPI will not work when the users choose to host Camera RAW in Bridge. Finally, it appears that some UI elements will flash when being dragged or when using the gradient tool.
Photoshop CC subscribers can download the Camera RAW 8.7 RC update at the company’s official site.
