Adds support for many new cameras.

Overview

This powerful plug-in has been frequently updated to support more cameras and include more features and is available as part of Adobe Photoshop CS6. Adobe Photoshop Lightroom software is built upon the same powerful raw processing technology that is available in the Camera Raw plug-in

The last few versions of what is called Adobe Camera Raw on MacUpdate contain only the latest DNG Converter, not the latest Camera Raw files or plug-in. Once you click the download link you get a dmg image file called DNGConverter - and that's all it contains - I checked it with Pacifist. There is no explanation on Adobe's web site, that I can find, of this issue, not any recent download link for the actual Camera Raw plug-in. It's puzzling that MacUpdate would leave this misleading naming problem unresolved for so long. The only thing I can think of that makes any sense here is that Adobe now only provides Camera Raw updates through Adobe Photoshop of Photoshop Elements. I'm a bit leery of installing this DNG Converter update because it says it's only compatible with Photoshop CC. Which hardly seems reasonable as the main purpose of the DNGConverter is to handle backwards compatibility for Camera Raw files not supported in the user's extant version of Adobe Photoshop. Ever since Adobe moved their business to Creative Cloud they seem to be as confused about what they're doing as their users - and MacUpdate doesn't help with these misnamed updates.

Although you describe this as Camera Raw 9.8, the link is actually to DNG converter--which means my Adobe CS6 programs can't read the raw files from the Olympus EM-1 MarkII. Cl;early part of Adobe's attempt to force us to use the Creative Cloud versions.

Thanks! The URL Badbager provided works as of April 2016. Here it is again: https://helpx.adobe.com/x-productkb/multi/camera-raw-plug-in-installer.html I needed for my Sony Alpha (A7ii) with the latest 2016 firmware. I believe it also works with Sony A7rii

It appears the download link on this page is pointing to the Adobe DNG Converter.
