Changes in Camera Raw

Whats the difference between highlights/shadows and whites/blacks? If I understand it correctly - highlights is something like recovery, shadows something like fill light and whites/blacks are adjusting white/black point?

Re: Changes in Camera Raw

Blacks/Whites control the clipping to those values (pure black or white). Like Levels in Photoshop. But the control over the rest of the tonal areas are more sophisticated than PS. Highlight and Shadows adjust above or below the middle tonal range. White/Black is for fine tuning those ends of the tonal scale, Shadows and Highlights play a larger role above those clipping areas. Work top down, the Exposure (and to a lesser degree Contrast) are where you’ll do the heavy lifting. The other controls are for tweaking from there.

I will just add a note to Andrew's good advice. If you open a RAW file CS5 and found the red blown highlights warning, and now open the same RAW in CS6 you will not see that warning (unless the highlights were blown beyond recovery). So while you no longer have a recovery slider, CS6 has incorporated it into the RAW conversion and display.
