The Lightroom Update For Canon’s New Photo Format
Photographers rejoice! Adobe now has the ability to capture Canon’s revolutionary photo format, the dual-pixel raw. The format which is available on the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV, allows you to make a whole range of adjustments that simply would not be possible in a JPEG format.
Adobe Lightroom which is a go to for photographers to catalogue and edit images has generally emphasised on editing RAW format which offers a far greater quality and editing flexibility of images. However Canon’s new 5D Mark VI has taken the raw capabilities a step further, by introducing the dual-pixel raw, which makes fine-tuning features like focus and clearing up that annoying flare possible.
While previously this feature required photographers to use Digital Photo Professional, a raw-processing software by Canon, Adobe has now made editing this dual-pixel raw format possible from Lightroom. This means that Canon photographers now have all editing necessities right in one place.
Another exciting announcement made by Adobe recently is the addition of a Lightroom app to the Apple App Store. The app supports Adobe DNG (digital negative format) a format that is similar to the RAW file format. This has made possible the capturing of exceptionally high quality images and has taken photo editing from the phone to an all new level.
The revolutionary dual-pixel raw format is the latest in the growing trend that is known as computational photography. While initially photography was the recording of light chemically between thin plastic sheets, today this is just the beginning of capturing an image. Post processing through digital cameras, computers and even phones has completely changed the world of photography.
