Im running Lightroom 2 and normally import images from my MkII without problems, with the IMG file extension. I used a friends 70D and am trying to import _MG files but the files won't import. Can anyone help as I need the images from this card and need to be able to work on them. I tried importing using a custom filename sequence number but this didn't work either. Thanks!
"Mk II"? 1D Mk II? 1Ds Mk II? 5d Mk II?
Anyway, the 70D wasn't supported by Lightroom until version 5.2. Old (obsolete) versions of Lr cannot be expected to understand what to do with files from cameras five years newer than the software.
Either update Lightroom or convert the files to DNG with the Adobe DNG Converter - Lr 2 will read them.
Updating is far and away the best option, if you care about the quality of results: Lr 5 is in another league, image quality wise, to Lr 2.
Cheers Keith! You're a legend.
Its a 5d btw :-)
