I just got the Cannon Rebel T6i and my Raw files are not showing up to be imported. From what I read, It is a Lightroom version issue, which really stinks since I just got Lightroom recently and had to replace my camera due to a malfunction. Is this true? Is upgrading my only option? Also, would Lightroom 6 be the upgrade that I would have to do, is it compatible with my camera?
The minimum Lightroom version required for that model is version 6.
You have the option to upgrade or download the latest version of the Adobe DNG converter, convert the CR2 files to DNG and then import them to your current version of Lightroom.
