June 1, 2007 – Adobe recently released the Adobe DNG Converter and Camera Raw 4.1 update. The DNG Converter is a free utility that converts files to the DNG file format. Camera Raw 4.1 adds support for recently released cameras and digital backs.
The Adobe DNG Converter can convert files from more than 150 cameras into the DNG format.
'Digital Negative was developed to address the lack of an open standard for the proprietary and unique raw files created by each digital camera,' according to the Adobe website. 'DNG allows photographers to archive their raw camera files in a single format for easy cataloging and access in the future.'
Camera Raw 4.1 supports the following cameras:
Canon EOS-1D Mark III
Fuji FinePix S5 Pro

Phase One H 20
Phase One H 25
Phase One P 20
