The release candidates correct issues reported in Lightroom 5.0 and Camera Raw 8.1, including refinements to the Spot Healing Brush, Local Adjustment Brush and Noise Reduction tools. In addition, raw file format support is added for a number of cameras, such as the Canon EOS 70D, Fujifilm X-M1 and Sony DSC-RX1R.

The Lightroom 5.2 release candidate is available as a free update for Lightroom 5 customers. Camera Raw 8.2 is available as a free update for both Photoshop CC and Photoshop CS6.
