Lightroom to support Canon's New Dual Pixel Raw

Adobe has told C-Net that they intend to support Canon's dual pixel raw

The dual-pixel raw format lets photographers fine-tune focus and clear up distracting flare. Those advantages won't be restricted to Canon's own software forever, though.

"We're working on it," Adobe spokesman Roman Skuratovskiy said Thursday. He declined to say when Adobe would add the update to Lightroom and its cousin, Photoshop, though.

It's good that Adobe has acknowledged that they will support the format, but I wouldn't hold my breath. They said they were working on improving Fuji X-Trans decoding over a year ago and it still hasn't improved, despite what some over-enthusiastic bloggers may say.
