Adobe Camera Raw 8.7.1 Now Available

Camera Raw 8.7.1

Adobe has announced the availability of Camera Raw 8.7.1 for Photoshop CC and Photoshop CS6, which adds RAW file support for the new Sony A7 II and updated support for the Samsung NX1. Several new lens profiles are also part of the update.

A corresponding update for Lightroom 5 (to version 5.7.1) is expected to be released within the next week. I’ll have the latest on that update as soon as it is released.

Finally, an update for the free DNG Coverter 8.7.1 is also available for Mac and Windows.
