I recently purchased a Sony Alpha 5100. I found that Lightroom 4 is unable to process the RAW files produced by this camera. Is there an Update/Add-In/Whatever that makes Lightroom 4 "understand" the Sony-RAWs?
In order to import the RAW files from Sony Alpha 5100/6000, you should have atleast Lightroom 5.4 version and camera raw 8.7 as mentioned in the below article :
Alternatively, you can install Adobe DNG converted to convert the raw files into dng format and import them into Lightroom then :
You can use the free Adobe DNG converter to convert the files to DNG, which will allow you to import and edit them in Lr 4. Otherwise you'll need to upgrade to Lightroom 6
DNG converter can be download from:
Thank you both!
