Adobe has released an updated beta version (v3.3, 11/10/05) of their Adobe
Camera Raw plug-in for raw file conversion with a few enhancements. (Compatible
only with Photoshop CS 2 as well as Elements 3.0 and 4.0.) Support for additional
cameras has also been added, including the Canon EOS 5D, EOS 1D Mark II N, Pentax
*ist DL and *ist DS2. A minor fix has also been made to the Adobe DNG converter,
"improved decoding for some camera models". Do note that this is a
beta version, although it appeared to work perfectly in my preliminary tests.
When installing the Camera Raw plug-in, be sure to follow the instructions exactly
as described on the Adobe web site. The download for Mac and Windows is available
at http://www.adobe.com/support/downloads/new.jsp.

Sony is expanding its (Alpha) digital SLR system with the introduction of the
DSLR-A700 camera, which is aimed at photo enthusiasts or serious photo hobbyists.
The new model features advanced imaging technologies and ultra-responsive operation,
as well as a lightweight, dust- and moisture-resistant, magnesium alloy construction
common to enthusiast-class D-SLR cameras.


Like Sony's mainstream DSLR-A100 model, the new A700 unit incorporates
Super SteadyShot Inside image stabilization in the camera body and is compatible
with most Minolta Maxxum mount lenses in addition to Sony lenses. The camera's
new 12.2-megapixel Exmor CMOS sensor conducts analog-to-digital (A/D) signal
conversion and dual noise reduction right on the sensor itself. Noise reduction
is applied to analog signals before A/D conversion and the resulting digital
signals are then subject to a second round of noise reduction.
