Photography: Raw File Support - Requests and Information?

I just got a new camera and Camera Raw and/or Lightroom does not recognize the raw files, has no camera-specific profiles or has some features not enabled. What do I do?

You need to use DNG Converter 6.7 to create DNG files from your .CR2 files. These DNG files can then be used in Lightroom 3.

Converting .CR2s from my Canon D50 using DNG converter 6.7 - the DNGs can be read by Elements 10, but converted files from my Canon 5Diii are not recognized by the converter.

This is what should have been said in my previous text

Are you using DNGC 6.6 from www.adobe.com/downloads/updates or are you using the DNGC 6.7 RC from http://labs.adobe.com/

Apologies – I was running 6.6 - 6.7 works, CR2s from Canon 5D iii covert to .DNGs which Elements 10 can read.

When I try to import the RAF raw files from my new Fuji xPro1 LR4 says 'Preview Unavailable for this File' and refuses to add the files to my library. then continues with a message 'File format not supported' Lightroom (1)

This is frustrating as according to Fuji the file format is the same as the Finepix X100 raw RAF which is listed as 'supported' by LR.

I am using a Sony Vaio laptop, Windows 7 Prof, 64Bit, 6GB RAM, auto updates on.

I was running the LR4 Beta and installed the 4.0 over the top.

Otherwise LR4 is great.

Unfortunately each camera model has a somewhat different raw file format, even though the extension (e.g., .RAF) may be the same. To make matters more complicated, the Fuji X-Pro1 has a completely different sensor design than previous models like the X100 or X10. Thus, significant engineering effort is needed to support raw files from the X-Pro1 (again, even though they share the same file extension as earlier models).

I guess my question is; Is the Adobe team working w/ fuji to develop the convention software for the x-pro-1 at this time? I do understand that it's going to take a brand new algorithm to make it work but it seems fuji already has one for their software so it's not like your starting from scratch.

FUJI X-Pro 1 is a pro camera. Everyday, I'm working with D3s, and others pro cameras (X100 too !) and we need also to work asap with RAF files from X-pro 1, not JPEG only. Pleaaaaaaase, do something ! We need you. ;)

I have Photoshop CS4. I will be purchasing the Olympus EM-5 camera when it comes out. Will Adobe be creating a plug-in or add-on for Photoshop CS 4 that will allow me to process the images I make with this camera? I shoot in RAW pretty much exclusively. Thanks!

Read the article that is the official answer above. This camera isn't currently supported. If/when new support is added, you can use the latest version of the FREE Adobe DNG converter for support of the latest cameras in Photoshop CS4, CS3 and CS2.

Why am I unable to open NEF files produced by my Nikon D800 with my copy of Elements 10 but can open NEF files taken with my Nikon D300?
I have downloaded all the latest updates to no avail.

Any update is coming. You can use the free DNG converter 6.7 here in the meantime to covert the files for compatibility with Elements 10: http://labs.adobe.com/downloads/camer...

The latest ACR for CS5 came out in December, whereas the 5D.3 came out in March. There is a new version of ACR that works with the 5D.3 in CS5, but it is only available in beta at Adobe Labs: http://labs.adobe.com/

What is ACR?
I've downloaded the 4.1 LR, CS6 Beta and still not getting the flow working... Converting to DNG downloaded, Downloaded Camera RAW 6.7 so what's next?

ACR = Adobe Camera Raw. This is irrelevant, since you have Lightroom 4.1. Lightroom uses the same internal technology as ACR, but Lr is standalone so you don't need to download ACR separately.

Lightroom 4.1 RC should be able to import 5D Mark III .CR2 raw files fine. Have you tried using a dedicated memory card reader connected to your computer (e.g., via USB) instead of connecting the camera directly to your computer?

Thanks Eric, I was able to load my shots in LR4.1 but they look funky compared to what I usually shoot... Bland and not clean. I do not have any presets in LR as I like total control but the previews are changing from great to dull. Any thoughts on that?

Sounds like you are looking at the JPEG Previews contained within the Raw File. They appear briefly as the system builds a new Raw preview in the background.

Rikk that very well could be but it's really not even an expectable exposure for being a JPG.

Well I didn't say it was a 'correct' preview...

The embedded JPEG is based on the camera settings. The preview in LR is based on LR settings, which are very unlikely to be the same. "Dull" is a good starting point, in that extreme settings (such as JPEG engines often impart) throw data away in shadows and highlights. Much better to dial in what you want for tone and colour than have to back off the sliders to regain the data. IMO of course.

Thanks Kim,
IMO? The initial load has an awesome look but quickly changes to that mutation of blandness and it's not JPG imbedding. In essence it creates much more workflow than has to be and therefore it is an error.

I understand what you're saying though but my feeling is, the camera language is not syncing with the LR language... Next thing you know, we'll need profiling for every piece of gear, development equipment at every step of post production. Has anyone downloaded a Profile for their Compact Flash Card yet? sheesh!

It's my understanding that this is exactly what happens anyway. Each camera must be profiled in order to render accurately in ACR / LR. If you have a particular initial look that you prefer, just save it as a preset and have it applied on import. You only need to do the initial work once.

Daniel,

There is no "language" nor need to profile compact-flash cards. What are you talking about?

The RAW sensor data and the camera's reported WB setting are the only common inputs to both the Canon RAW-processor, and the Adobe RAW Processor so how would they end up with the same rendering in LR?

Adobe and Canon are distinct, independent companies with their own ideas, motivations and markets, and do not share their RAW-processing algorithms with each other--why would they? Until Canon buys Adobe or Adobe buys Canon or they otherwise are combined into a single entity they are not going to have common processing methods, and perhaps not even then. Why would a piece of software that runs on a multi-core multi-GHz computer do the same exact thing as a tiny chip in a camera?

LR eventually shows you the Adobe rendering of the camera's sensor data using the LR defaults you have set, but in the mean time, it shows the camera-embedded JPG thumbnail which has the Canon rendering of the sensor data using the camera settings, so you see one view change into another. The alternative would be for LR to show merely a gray box until it has completed a preview, but in the interest of showing you something sooner rather than later, so it displays the camera-embedded thumbnail for a moment until it has computed things fully, itself. This may be confusing to some.

Unless you can force Adobe and Canon to merge into a single company, concentrate on learning LR and setting its defaults to your own liking.

The F770 from Fujifilm just came out and is not supported in ACR, and not listed as a new camera supported in 4.1 RC1. Any idea when it will be supported?

I asked for this months ago. The sensor is supposedly a bit more efficient than the same sensor in the F550 and F600, but otherwise there should be no difference. Hopefully we'll see support soon.
