Default Lightroom 3 Beta Available


For those that are interested a beta of Lightroom 3 is now available:

It is stated that it is not yet feature complete, list of added functionality so far is:

- Brand new performance architecture, building for the future of growing image libraries
- State-of-the-art noise reduction to help you perfect your high ISO shots
- Watermarking tool that helps you customize and protect your images with ease
- Portable sharable slideshows with audio
- Flexible customizable print package creation so your print package layouts are all your own
- Film grain simulation tool for enhancing your images to look as gritty as you want
- New import handling designed to make importing streamlined and easy
- More flexible online publishing options so you can post your images online to certain online photo sharing sites directly from inside Lightroom 3 beta (may require third-party plug-ins)

I've add a quick play around myself, and one thing that has struck me is the improved de-mosaicing. I found Lightroom used to sometime produce a bit of a 'plastic' look compared to Canon's DPP, but this has now gone completely. New colour noise reduction also seems impressive at first glance.
