Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5.3 - Windows (872MB) | Macintosh (480.6MB)
Adobe DNG Converter 8.3
This update contains the Adobe DNG Converter 8.3.
The Adobe DNG Converter is a free utility that enables you to easily convert camera-specific raw files from more than 350 cameras to the more universal DNG raw format.
Digital Negative was developed to address the lack of an open standard for the proprietary and unique raw files created by each digital camera. DNG allows photographers to archive their raw camera files in a single format for easy cataloging and access in the future. With the format specification freely available, any developer can build software that supports and takes advantage of DNG. For more information, visit the Digital Negative page.
Support for the following cameras has been added. Visit the Camera Raw page for a complete list of supported cameras.

The 5D Mark III's AF system nailed focus even in the dimly lit areas of the arena. The Sigma 35mm f/1.4's moderatley wide angle was great for capturing groups of people and allowed me to choose a wide aperture when needed. The Rogue FlashBender increased the size of my shoe-mount flash so that the light was a bit more flattering on my subjects. The CTO gel I stuck on the flash closely matched the arean's warm light so that good results could be obtained with a global white balance correction. And lastly, ETTL exposure meant I could focus more on framing, composition and timing without having to worry about constantly changing my flash's power to suit any given situation.
I love shooting in very controlled, studio-like conditions. Under those circumstances, I find manually adjusting my flash(es) to be optimal for me. However, there are times when ETTL and a shoe-mount flash (and a possibly small modifier) simply can't be beat.
The fact that the 600EX-RT features built-in radio (ETTL enabled) triggering is a big plus. ;-) [Sean]

The headlines are the result of a study by Linda A. Henkel, Professor of Psychology at Fairfield University, titled "The Influence of Taking Photos on Memory for a Museum Tour."
Her findings indicated that photographing objects can have an effect on what is remembered about them. Her abstract states:
"Two studies examined whether photographing objects impacts what is remembered about them. Participants were led on a guided tour of an art museum and were directed to observe some objects and to photograph others. Results showed a photo-taking-impairment effect: If participants took a photo of each object as a whole, they remembered fewer objects and remembered fewer details about the objects and the objects’ locations in the museum than if they instead only observed the objects and did not photograph them. However, when participants zoomed in to photograph a specific part of the object, their subsequent recognition and detail memory was not impaired, and, in fact, memory for features that were not zoomed in on was just as strong as memory for features that were zoomed in on. This finding highlights key differences between people’s memory and the camera’s “memory” and suggests that the additional attentional and cognitive processes engaged by this focused activity can eliminate the photo-taking-impairment effect."
In other words, subjects who photographed museum pieces as a whole did not remember the pieces as well as those who were cameraless. However, those who zoomed in on the pieces and captured details seemed to remember the artwork as well as test subjects who didn't carry a camera.
But from my own personal experience, pictures tend to bring back a flood of memories that I wouldn't have been able to recall otherwise. Truth is, I have a terrible memory. I have trouble remembering what I had for lunch yesterday let alone things I did a year or more ago.
But when I see a photos taken throughout my life, I'm instantly taken back to that exact place and time. With the photo in hand (or on the screen, as it may be), memories wash over me with ease and I can recall details I thought I never knew had been tucked away in my memory (and not just the details illustrated by the photo). I think most people can identify with that.
So maybe we shouldn't let one study with a very narrow set of circumstances tarnish how we perceive cameras and how they can affect our lives. As for me, cameras have done so much more to enrich my memory (and for that matter – my life) than they have ever taken away from it. [Sean]
