Lightroom/Photoshop/Camera Raw: Canon EOS R5 CR3 Support

I just got my Canon EOS R5 today and I took a few sample photos and went to import them but Lightroom doesn't recognize them.  Neither does photoshop or Camera RawWhen will we receive support for the EOS R5 CR3 file.  Currently, i cannot view them outside the camera

The beta DNG converter has support.  But, to be reasonable, the camera started shipping only two days ago.  Adobe has NEVER had a version of Camera Raw or Lightroom that could read files from a brand new camera at the same time the camera is released.  That is an issue with ANY new camera model.  Give them a couple of weeks.

Thank you so much for the links. I tried Canon's own DPP4 and it's extremely slow, plus it's producing huge TIFF files. DNG is much more effective.

Will this allow me to use R5 raw images in Lightroom?

Yes, after you convert them to DNG. All metadata and EXIF will be preserved.

Yes Luke. Soon native support will follow. Use the DNG converter until then.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Camera RAW CR3 files..

Camera RAW CR3 files. I have the new Canon EOS R5 camera. The RAW image files are CR3 files. Lightroom and Photoshop will neither one open the files. I am told it may take 90 days before Adobe will have the plugin to make these work. I'm surprised they are not working with Canon to make sure the Adobe products work when a new camera is released.

Probably for the same reason Nikon’s new cameras don’t work with Adobe out of box.  It requires the camera manufacturers to share info about file formats.  Neither Nikon nor Canon are forthcoming about file formats.

Also, I wouldn’t get too attached to the R5.  I’ve read on Canon Rumors that Canon is already stopping shipments and considering a recall over the heat issue.

That was based on some blogger's fantasy and not true. It was already debunked by Canon and multiple sources.

Yes. It seems to be the case, but the heat issue in video is still an issue.

We shall see. I am a stills photographer not videographer. Hopefully this will be worked out via firmware updates or recalls if un fact it is a real issue.
