Adobe Camera Raw 6.1 Addresses Photoshop CS5 Stability Issue

Adobe announced the immediate availability of Camera Raw 6.1 for Photoshop CS5 on Wednesday. The release candidate fixed an issue where Photoshop CS5 could crash when opening files with the Camera Raw 6.0 plug-in, and added support for ten more cameras.

Camera Raw 6.1 added support for the Canon EOS 550D (Digital Rebel T2i/ EOS Kiss X4 Digital), Kodak Z981, Leaf Aptus-II 8, Leaf Aptus-II 10R, Mamiya DM40, Olympus E-PL1, Olympus E-600, Panasonic G2, Panasonic G10 and Sony A450.

The update added a lens correction feature that includes profile-based fixes for camera lens-related issues such as geometric distortions, chromatic aberration and lens vignette effects. It also improved overall performance and added an updated support for the Olympus E-600 camera.
