Support for 6 new cameras: Baumer TXG14, Canon EOS-1D C, Canon PowerShot SX230, OmniVision OV5647 (Raspberry Pi), Samsung NX1100 and Samsung NX2000.
Better white balancing for Nikon E700 and improved support for some older cameras
• Bug Fix: The Auto Lens Correction feature only worked in combination with Chromatic Aberration Removal feature in previous versions.
• If MetaRaw Converter is selected in Photoshop Elements 10 & 11, the Auto Lens Correction and Chromatic Aberration Removal check boxes are now disabled, because they only work with Adobe Camera Raw and Adobe DNG Converter at the moment.
