I'm going to buy a new Camera that requires Camera Raw 9.0 can I upgrade Elements 12 to have that upgrade?
You need at least Elements 13 to work with Camera raw 9.0
Here is the list : https://helpx.adobe.com/x-productkb/global/camera-raw-compatible-applications.html
and Adobe only sells Elements 14 which only runs on OS X 10.9 or later
Tech specs | Adobe Photoshop Elements 14 for Mac, Windows, PC
So check your computer hardware and operating system before upgrading Elements.
