PLEASE add support for SAMSUNG nx5 raw file in ACR.
It is exactly the same camera, like the supported NX10 - there is difference only in lcd / amoled display, same body, same software, same lenses, the produced raw (.srw) file is the same (but has different exif model tag) I must edit all pictures exif before I can do somethink with ACR / Photoshop.
I think it is about only few added words in source code or database of supported models, when I change exif tag "camera model" from NX5 to NX10, everythink works fine, but it is not very comfortable for everyday use.

Hello, Camera Raw and lightroom are updated almost every 90 days.
There is some testing that needs to be made to support a new camera, even if it seems similar from the outside, there are maybe some other changes that could be discovered later. The Camera Raw has been very reactive, and ACR/LR is one of the raw converter that has the fastest support on new models.

I would suggest you to try to contact your camera manufacturer: if they selected to support the DNG format, your camera would have been supported from day one, even in older versions of ACR/LR...

If you know the ExifTool parameters, you can use RC Importer to automate.
