A few items worth checking out today:

• This one snuck by a lot of folks the other week, but Adobe made some new D3 and D700 camera profiles available. You can find out more here.

• In other Adobe news, for all of you eager to support for newer cameras, a beta of Lightroom 2.7 (and Camera Raw 5.7) has been released.

• Just got word of Safari Books online’s new web service called Creative Edge.

• Don’t forget to keep an eye out on April 12th for the full launch of CS5. Among other things, you can expect we’ll (as in NAPP) have some great coverage on all the new stuff.

  1. I rebooted my machine sometime after loading the d700 and ds3 profiles… got prompted to backup security certs/keys for the encrypted file system… which I never knew I had of course. lol Apparently the zip you download has a folder with that attribute set, so when you install it on your system, you know have a folder which has keys and a cert associated with it. Windows knows you’ve never backed up the security related items… You can change the folder properties to remove this EFS stuff… and to see all the folders on your system with this attribute, you can pull up a command window and run “cypher /n /u”… just heads up to anyone surprised after loading this set of camera profiles on Vista (and perhaps others…) Lyle

  2. I have a D700 and these profiles really add some quality zip that was missing in the old ones. If you have a D3 or D700, give them a try ! Thanks for the link Matt, I wouldn’t have seen it otherwise, too many blogs to follow and remain sane.

  3. Lyle: I hope you’re right, but I doubt it. Mid May is just a month away and LR 2.7 Beta is just out. A release of LR 2.7 the same week as 3.0? No way …

  6. A beta of Lightroom 2.7?! That means that Lightroom 3 is light years away. 🙁

    • two separate development tracks… I bet we’ll see LR 3 by mid May at the latest, since CS5 is coming mid April…
