Question on CS5 and ACR6.7 vs LR4 for shadow/highlight recovery?

I've been reading a lot about the almost miraculous shadow and highlight recovery gains possible from processing RAWs using the new LR4.

I've never used lightroom; my workflow involves selecting RAWs in Adobe bridge and having them open using the latest ACR (6.7) in CS5.

My question is simply whether using this latest ACR in CS5 should provide the same highlight/shadow recovery capability as I'm reading around LR4 or is there something special in LR4 (and CS6 perhaps?) that is the key?

thanks all.

The change of the sliders in ACR7.x was enough for me to upgrade from CS5. They replaced the Recovery, Fill, Blacks, and Brightness with Highlights, Shadows, Black, and Whites. They work much better. If nothing else, download the trial of CS6 and try it yourself.

ACR 6.7 is a strange sort of half-breed; it uses PV 2012 under the hood but lacks the interface to access it and manipulate it to best effect.

You don't have the new sliders in ACR6.7 as you do in LR4 and ACR7.x
ACR6.7 just has the ACR7.x engine in for those wanting to edit files in CS5 from LR4
