Camera Raw 5.5 now on Adobe Labs

Over on the Lightroom Journal, Tom Hogarty reports that the Camera Raw 5.5 and DNG Converter 5.5 Release Candidates are now available on Adobe Labs. He writes,

The release includes new camera support for the following models:

        •        Nikon D300s

        •        Nikon D3000

        •        Olympus E-P1

        •        Panasonic DMC-FZ35

Of course you’ll also be able to read raw files from the new Ricoh GR Digital III but because they’re DNG files you didn’t need to wait for this update.

This release also includes a correction to the demosaic algorithms for Bayer sensor cameras with unequal green response.

Please provide feedback on your experience with the Camera Raw 5.5 plug-in and the DNG Converter on the Camera Raw User to User forum.

    “Camera Raw 5.5 includes a correction to the demosaic algorithms for Bayer sensor cameras with unequal green response”
    What is “unequal green response” and what cameras does Abobe believe to be afflicted by it?

    John,
    What does this refer to? Does this change things for my Sony DSC 828 with “emerald” sensors?
    “This release also includes a correction to the demosaic algorithms for Bayer sensor cameras with unequal green response.”
    I can find no info on the support site.
    Thanks again,
    Michael
    [Tom H. from Lightroom/ACR says, “Sony, Panasonic and Olympus are among the more popular camera manufacturers affected by this change. But the demosaic correction provides only a subtle visual improvement to the processing of those raw files.” –J.]
