Google+ dramatically improving RAW photo uploads, supporting over 70 camera models

Google+ is increasingly becoming a place for photographers, and today's announcement of wider support for RAW image uploading helps solidify that point. Folks with higher-end cameras have had the option to upload full-sized RAW images to Google+ in the past, but now the ability is being significantly improved thanks to technology from Nik, which Google recently acquired.

Photographers can now upload RAW photos from over 70 different camera models (we'll put a full list after the break), and then edit them as much as they want in the new Google+ JPEG editor. Just as anyone would expect in a RAW editor, the original file is preserved and can be downloaded at any time, as can the edited JPEGs.
