I have udated LR 4 to LR 4.4. It is supposed to open the newer Canon camera RAW files like the 70D. After updating with the download from Adobe LR ver. 4 will still not open the 70D RAW files. Does anyone have any suggestion? I must be doing something incorrect or am missing a step to the update. Thanks!
Not so, 70D support was added in Lightroom 5.2 ... Camera Raw plug-in | Supported cameras
You have a choice to upgrade to Lightroom 5.6 or use the DNG convertor to convert the CR2 files to DNG and import.
I am not able to upgrade to Lightroom 5.6, since it requires at least windows 7 and I have Vista. I tried importing to Lightroom via copying as DNG, but that did not work--LR sent back an error message that it did not recognize the file. Is there a DNG converter apart from LR?
