Adobe DNG Converter has been updated to 7.2.

Adobe DNG converter is a stand alone application that enables you to convert your native/proprietary camera RAW files (in batches) (Like the Nikon .NEF, Canon .CR2, Fuji .RAF) to an Open format. The DNG format was created to provide a single RAW format for all your pictures and simplify your whole workflow. Open means that any developer (now and future) is able to support you in extracting your RAW images without facing problems of proprietary software not being available or not working. Moving to the DNG format will enable you to reduce image processing complexity, especially when you have more than one RAW camera files in your workflow. To find out more information about Camera Raw DNG converter, then please follow this link.
