    Is the “Known Issues” regarding losing Cannon Camera support under Lion a BUG report, or is it an official dropping of support going forward?

  20. Lo Yuk Fai says:

    I don’t know what magic you used but thanks very much for the speed improvement… : )

  21. Milly says:

    Is support for the Sony Alpha 900 planned any time in the near future?

  22. Val says:

    When ‘EXPORTing’ JPEG’s to DVD that exceed the size of the DVD, LR3 does not ask for a 2nd DVD.

  23. Pierre says:

    I’ve heard rumors that the bug on Mac OSX 10.7 with tethering in LR 3.5 still doesn’t work. Is that true, even though the bug fixes list says “Lightroom would experience tether capture failures on computers utilizing OS X 10.6.8 and 10.7”?


    • Hi Pierre,

      I tried today if Tethered was working with 3.5 and my Canon 5D MK II but the problem still remains.

      I really really hope this wil be solved ASAP! For now the only work around would be to use Canon EOS Utility and save RAW image somewhere and auto import it into Lightroom.

  24. Camille says:

    Has anyone else noticed that some of their lens profiles disappeared after upgrading to 3.5? I was tweaking some older photos and noticed the Pentax profiles are no longer in the list.

  32. I.G. Romov says:

    Hope Adobe will consider the following:

    Add Panasonic GH-1 and GH-2 to supported camera list.
    Add Photoshop anamorphic scaling to Camera Raw and develop section of Lightroom.

    Justification: there are a lot of GH-1 & 2 enthusiasts out there and being able to shoot tethered would be meeting a real business need. And, while Photoshop conveniently gives the opportunity to scale anamorphic shots, this does not help working with a “properly sized” image in Camera Raw or Developing in LIghtroom. These changes would help accomodate the flexibility offered by newer DSLRs.

    • thogarty says:

      [Support was added for the GH1 and GH2 in a prior version of Lightroom 3. Please check this page for the complete list. -TH]

  33. geezjan says:

    Is there a regular schedule for Lightroom/ACR updates to support new cameras?

    For the first time I find myself in possession of a camera that Lightroom/ACR doesn’t support yet (Canon PowerShot S100). Just wondering how long it will be for the next update.

  34. How much of an improvement is 3.5?

  35. Michel says:

    When I develop a ISO 3200 photo (from a Nikon D7000 NEF-file), the noise reduction is disabled after using the recovery tool. Mostly after using recovery by factor 10.

  36. will says:

    I have a GF1 and a G2 will adobe lightroom write some script so we can use tethered capture too…

  37. Roy Perrett says:

    I have just ordered Lightroom 3. I have a Panasonic G3 camera.
    Will the update still be available now that Lightroom 4 has been launched
