New in Lightroom 3.3
The goal of this release is to provide additional camera raw support, lens profile support and address bugs that were introduced in previous releases of Lightroom 3. (A comprehensive list of issues fixed in this release is included below.)
New Supported Cameras:
Support for the following cameras has been added in this update.
- Canon PowerShot G12
- Canon PowerShot S95
- Nikon D7000
- Nikon Coolpix P7000
- Nikon D3100
- Olympus E-5
- Panasonic DMC-GF2
- Panasonic DMC-GH2
- Pentax K-5
- Pentax K-r
- Ricoh GXR, GR LENS A12 28mm F2.5

- Samsung TL350 (WB2000)

- To update your Lightroom 1 or Lightroom 2 catalog simply launch Lightroom 3 and you will be able to select and upgrade your previous Lightroom catalog.
- The Lightroom 3 catalog upgrade process does not erase or remove your previous Lightroom catalogs. If you wish to try the Lightroom 3 30-day trial by upgrading your existing catalog, you may always return to earlier versions of Lightroom and continue using your previous catalog.
- NOTE: Any changes or work completed in your catalog once it has been upgraded to work with Lightroom 3 will not be available in previous versions of Lightroom.
NOTE: The upgrade process will modify the image preview information of an upgraded catalog.(This information is stored in the .lrdata file that is located adjacent to a catalog file in the file system). Returning to a previous version of Lightroom will require that the previews be re-rendered. This can be a lengthy process for those with hundreds of thousands of images.
- Upgrading a Library from Photoshop Elements 6, Photoshop Elements 7, Photoshop Elements 8 or Photoshop Elements 9 for Windows requires that Photoshop Elements be installed on the computer at the time of upgrade.
- Lightroom 3 beta catalogs may be upgraded using the same methods available for Lightroom 1 or Lightroom 2 catalogs.
- If you attempt to upgrade the same Lightroom catalog more than once, Lightroom will inform you of the location of the previously upgraded catalog.
General Program Notes
- Burning exported images to disc is not available for the Lightroom 64-bit Windows application.
- Lightroom performance can be impacted when the Window’s Recycle Bin contains thousands of files.
- Lightroom may not automatically launch an import dialog when a memory card is attached to a Windows Vista computer. Please select the Import button in the Library and select the attached card reader to begin the import.
- Printing watermarked output on a Japanese language 64-bit system can cause Lightroom to crash.

Lightroom 3.3 Known Issues
