          Hi Neosea,

           

          On a user-to-user forum nobody can give you a pertinent answer regarding date.

           

          The obvious (and hardly useful...) answer is: either with version LR4.1 or 4.2

           

          New camera models and their raw formats are always introduced with dot-releases.

          For 4.1 a Release Candidate is already out, so it may be too short a leadtime to introduce more new cameras, but only the final will tell definitely.

          Sometimes you can get along with mimicking the new files as ones of its immediate predecessor - I used this following Rob Cole and his import plugin two years ago for the Canon G12 for two months.

              I'm sorry to tell you that it might not be that rosy.

               

              Because the SD1 uses a foven sensor, the raw files are structured differently from other cameras, and have to be processed by Lightroom in a different way. This means that it will take them much longer to release raw support for the SD1 (if they ever do). I highly doubt taht it'll make the 4.1  release, it might be on 4.2, might be later.

               

              sorry to be the bearer of bad news.
