The RAW- files from my new CANON 5D Mk III are not convertible into LR 3 and CS 5.
What is the reason and how to solve the problem?
You can either update to LR4 and/or the latest CS, or use the free convertor to DNG and use LR3 and CS5 with DNG instead of RAW.
There is no way to update 3.6 or CS5 to directly work with 5D Mk III RAW.
The DNG convertor is available here on theright side panle.
You need Camera RAW 6.7 – it supports the 5D III AND runs under PS CS5
Thanks for the correction ... I missed that it still works in CS5 ... as the last RAW update to CS5.
However, for LR my earlier repsonse is correct .. AFAIK .
The work around of converting the CR2 to dng either with the dng converter or ACR 6.7 will allow working in LR and CS5 but not with the latest raw conversion engine from Adobe i.e PV 2012.
Remember to keep a copy of the CR2 files if you wish to utilize the Canon software.
Thanks to all who helped me.
