DNG Converter 8.4
This update contains the Adobe DNG Converter 8.4.
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.

April 08, 2014 – SAN JOSE, Calif. Adobe today announced the availability of Lightroom mobile, a companion app to Lightroom desktop software, only available as part of Adobe Creative Cloud. The new Lightroom mobile app brings powerful Lightroom tools to the iPad, delivering photography essentials – such as non-destructive processing of files – and utilizing new Smart Preview technologies to free professional-class photo editing from the confines of the desktop. Lightroom mobile is built on a powerful synchronization architecture, designed specifically for photos, and provides the most efficient way to manage and edit images across desktops, mobile devices and the Web.
Lightroom mobile is available as part of the Adobe Creative Cloud Photoshop Photography Program. For USD$9.99 per month, photographers have access to Lightroom 5 and Photoshop CC on the desktop as well as Lightroom mobile on iPad.
“With the launch of Lightroom mobile, we’ve unlocked professional-class photographic workflows from the confines of the desktop,” said Winston Hendrickson, vice president products, Creative Media Solutions, Adobe. “Lightroom and Photoshop redefined digital photography on the desktop and now, photographers can perfect images, wherever they are and, via Creative Cloud, seamlessly synchronize them back to their desktop catalog.”
Lightroom mobile and the photography optimized synchronization architecture puts the powerful tools from Lightroom 5 at photographer’s fingertips, including:

  • Sync mobile edits, metadata and collection changes back to the Lightroom catalog on a Mac or Windows computer
  • Automatically import images captured on an iPad and sync back to a Lightroom catalog on the desktop

As I add or remove images from a collection in Lightroom mobile or on the computer, the changes stay synchronized. When I need to show my work those photos are already set up to be viewed.”

I really enjoy Profoto's "Light Shaping with Andrea Belluso" series. In this video, Belluso demonstrates different ways for using the Profoto WideZoom Reflector for portraiture.
I don't typically use such hard lighting for shooting portraits, but Belluso's work has me reconsidering my techniques. [Sean]

Datacolor SpyderHD Color Calibration Bundle
From Datacolor:
Integrated color management tools for imaging professionals seeking an all-in-one solution
Lawrenceville, NJ – April 7, 2014 – Datacolor, a global leader in color management solutions, today announced SpyderHD, the premiere color calibration suite for advanced and professional photographers and videographers. SpyderHD is designed to color manage photo and video workflows, from scene, camera and editing, to final output.
SpyderHD includes the new Spyder4ELITE HD integrated display calibration application; the first of its kind, with calibration functions for computer displays, video reference displays, and TVs, all within a single application. SpyderHD also includes the innovative SpyderWEB, a universal mounting system that securely mounts the Spyder for calibration of most screens up to 70”.
“As a photographer who has been calibrating for a long time, I understand the value of color calibration. SpyderHD is my preferred solution for tonal linearity in computer display calibration, and beats my personal calibration technique for video reference display calibration,” says Lee Varis, renowned Hollywood photographer.
In addition to display calibration offerings, SpyderHD includes two important camera solutions: the SpyderCHECKR, a powerful color reference and gray card system, and the portable SpyderCUBE, which provides white balance, exposure, black level and highlight references in any lighting condition. Combined, these tools enable photographers and videographers to capture consistent color day-to-day and camera-to-camera, enhancing their entire digital workflow.
“There is nothing else like the SpyderCUBE; the value of it is hard to over-emphasize for defining the light sources in a shot,” continued Varis. “Also, I find the SpyderCHECKR to provide all the camera color correction I need, for both photo and video.”
SpyderHD is available immediately for $349.00 USD at photo and video retailers. For more information, visit
