I don't see the G6H listed as a supported camera, only the G6:

Is the G6H a different camera model than the G6 or, as I am reading online, just a G6 with a different lens?

What matters is what camera-id is embedded in the raw files. If it says G6, there, then it should be supported, but if it says G6H then it may be too new for Adobe to have supported, or perhaps Adobe does not realize it has a different camera-id despite being the same camera body.

Can you provide a sample raw file from your camera, via dropbox.com or similar, so it can be examined?

I think the G6H is aG6 body with 14-140 superzoom lens. I don ́t have a dropbox account. How can I upload the RWA file for examination?

Go to http://www.dropbox.com and make an account, then.

It is free up to 2GB of file storage. You can share your file for as long as you want and just delete it from your dropbox when you no longer want to share it.

I installed DNG Converter on my office PC: Conversion of G6 RAW files works properly!!

The problem is, that I work with Lightroom 3.6 - after installation of DNG Converter 8.2 on my home PC the G6 RAW files could not be converted.

Now I ordered Lightroom 5 - I hope this will solve my problems.

Are you sure you're running the right version of the DNG Converter at home?

You can download LR 5.2 from http://www.adobe.com/downloads/updates and try that until you get your serial number from what you ordered. You'll want to update to LR 5.2, anyway, for the bug fixes.

Yes, I had DNG Converter 8.2 with Lightroom 3.6, I installed the right software twice. It definitely could not convert my G6 RAW files.

Now I installed Lightroom 5.2 everything is perfect!
