Camera Raw 4.2 Notes and Corrections:

  • Camera Raw 4.2 does not support the Canon EOS 1D Mark III SRAW format at this time
  • Lightroom and Camera Raw will be updated together to ensure raw format and settings compatibility
  • Noise reduction adjustment for all cameras with Bayer Pattern sensor:  The base point noise reduction applied at the demosaic stage of raw processing has been reduced.  The resulting effect is that images with zero luminance noise reduction applied in Camera Raw 4.2 will contain more noise than the identical settings in Camera Raw 4.1 but less noise than identical settings in Camera Raw 4.0. (This Applies to Lightroom 1.2 as well)

  • Lightroom 1.1 for Windows could at times display gray boxes instead of image thumbnails
  • The preference to write XMP metadata automatically in Lightroom 1.1 could attempt to write metadata indefinitely for offline images causing significant performance problems
