When a new camera is released, standardized formats such as JPEG, TIFF and DNG are supported immediately. Proprietary raw file formats are not standardized, so they must be individually added in a Lightroom release. Most cameras are supported within 2-3 months of their release. Raw file format support has been added in this release for:
- Hasselblad DJI Mavic 2 Pro (Hasselblad L1D-20c)
- Fujifilm GFX 100 1R
- Fujifilm GFX 100S
- Fujifilm X-E4
- Phase One IQ4 150MP Achromatic (S14 and S14+ raw compression modes unsupported)
- Samsung Galaxy S21 Rear Main Camera
- Samsung Galaxy S21 Rear Wide Camera
- Samsung Galaxy S21+ Rear Main Camera
- Samsung Galaxy S21+ Rear Wide Camera
- Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra Rear Main Camera
- Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra Rear Wide Camera
- Sony Alpha 1 (ILCE-1)

Many compact and mirrorless cameras have built-in lens profiles, but other cameras use lens profiles to correct for lens defects such as barrel/pincushion distortion and vignetting. New profiles are added with each Lightroom release. Click here for the full list of available Adobe Lens Profiles.

To update, go to Help menu > Updates or click the Update button in the CC app. The update servers take a while to push the updates around the world, to avoid overloading the servers. You can also open the Creative Cloud app, click Update on the left, then click the … icon (top right) and Check for Updates to give it a nudge. To update on mobile, visit the App Store (iOS) / Play Store (Android).
