Adobe has announced the immediate availability of the Adobe Lightroom 3 public beta update. The beta, downloaded by some 350,000 photographers to date, is currently a Labs release, and as such is subject to constant improvement and feedback.

Lightroom 3 beta 2 offers improvements on this feedback, as well as offering several new features. New features include tethered shooting support for a range of Nikon and Canon cameras, the ability to import and manage video files from a DSLR and behind the scenes improvements offering improved speed.

The addition of luminance noise reduction to the colour noise reduction options and improvements to the overall import experience also feature.
