I cannot import a Raw file (ARW) from a Sony A6300 directly into Lightroom 5 (Stand Alone Version) on a mac, do I just need to upgrade to Lightroom 6?
(Do not want to move to the Creative Cloud)
I have loaded the ARW file into Adobe DNG Converter then imported to Lightroom & it works fine, but its two steps; looking into buying the Sony A6500 and would like to import RAW directly from the camera to Lightroom in a single step.
The A6300 was first supported in Lightroom 6.5. It will never be supported in Lightroom 5.
So, yes, if you want to open Raw A6300 files in Lightroom and avoid the DNG converter then you'll need to upgrade to Lightroom 6 and make sure that version is updated to the latest version 6.7.
Thanks John, it was time to upgrade anyways.
