Photoshop CS now includes a Camera RAW plug-in (which was formerly an extra-cost option with Photoshop 7) that works quite well. It can be used only with the particular digital cameras that Adobe supports, typically from Nikon, Canon, or Konica Minolta and quite a few other vendors. In addition, Camera RAW supports the new Adobe Digital Negative (DNG) format. DNG is Adobe's attempt to create a common RAW format that can be used by all the different camera types.
The list of supported cameras at the time this book was published is a long one, shown in Table 3.1 You can also expect that camera models introduced after Photoshop CS from the same vendors are also supported. For example, although the Canon EOS 350 XT and Konica Minolta A200 debuted after the original Photoshop CS, their RAW formats are similar to their predecessor models and are fully supported. You can find the latest updates that list compatible cameras at www.adobe.com.
