Camera Raw 3.6 beta now available

As promised, the next rev to Adobe Camera Raw & the DNG Converter has been on an accelerated development schedule, and now beta releases of both have been posted for Mac (Universal) and Windows. New (preliminary) support in this release includes the following cameras:

  • Canon EOS 400D / Rebel XTi
  • Leica D-LUX3
  • Leica Digilux 3
  • Nikon D80
  • Panasonic DMC-LX2
  • Pentax K100D

    These join the cameras just added in ACR 3.5:

  • Nikon D2Xs
  • Panasonic DMC-FZ50
  • Panasonic DMC-L1
  • Sony A100

As always, please take a second to ensure that you install the plug-in into the correct spot:
Mac: /Library/Application Support/Adobe/Plug-ins/CS2/File Formats/…
Win: \Program Files\Common Files\Adobe\Plug-ins\CS2\File Formats\…
The full list of 140 or so supported cameras is on the Camera Raw product page.

  1. I’ve not been able to open Nikon D2Xs NEFs using 3.5 and 3.6 Beta in CS2, although the D2X NEFs open properly. Anyone else having this problem? I’ve dropped the file into \\Program Files\Common Files\Adobe\Plug-Ins\File Formats as required.
    [Hmm–not sure what could be going on there. You might try asking on the ACR forum at]

  2. What about Sigma? Why does it seem that the popular non-professional cameras get priority? I can understand the big-walleted companies like Nikon, Canon, et al. Are we waiting for the next generation Foveon cameras? I’ve seen someone write that they are busy writing code for it. Who is? The SD-9 came out ages ago and so did the SD-10. What gives?
    [Good questions. I’ll see what I can find out. –J.]

  3. also no luck with camera raw 3.6 update. Still opens all my D70 nef files, but not from my D80. My mac will open them in Iphoto, but cs2 not willing to play the game. Any clues???
    [Let me see what I can find out. You may want to go into Photoshop and choose “About Plug-In” (under Help on Windows, under Photoshop on Mac) and confirm that ACR 3.6 is actually installed correctly. –J.]
    [Update: ACR 3.6 is available via the Adobe Update Manager, so you can try choosing Help->Updates in Photoshop in order to grab it. –J.]
