All for Lightroom v3

Lightroom v3 beta 2 is now available for all to use/test. This is still a beta version, so you should remember that it comes with no warranty and, if you download it (for free), you expose yourself to a software application not yet ready for prime time and shop shelves (bugs are still very possible).

Nevertheless, many will be interested in trying the newest improvements announced:

  • A better handling of digital noise. By the way, you can find more about this in “Adobe Lightroom 3 Beta 2: Noise Reduction
  • Overall improvement of the execution speed
  • Control mode for tethered operation of Canon and Nikon cameras equipped with this option (see below)
  • Importing video files
  • A clearly better support for dematricing of Sony Alpha camera sensors. If you read French, you will find more details by reading “Lightroom 3 beta 2 et les Sony Alpha 550, 700 et 900
  • Etc.
