  • Fujifilm XF1
  • Fujifilm X-E1
  • Fuji FinePix F800EXR

  • Pentax K-30
  • Samsung EX2F
  • Sony Alpha NEX-5R

In addition to dozens of new lens profiles, Lightroom now has the ability for tethered image capture from the Canon EOS Kiss X5/REBEL T3i/600D, Canon EOS Kiss X50/REBEL T3/1100D, Canon EOS 5D Mark III, Canon EOS 1D X, Nikon D4, Nikon D800, and Nikon D800e.

The entire software suite has also benefited from bug patching to make a generally smoother, and less crash prone, existance.
