I just received my new Olympus E-5 and realize that my Photoshop Elements
9 does not support my new camera, or rather, Camera RAW 6.2 does not.
So I would also like to know when there will be a Camera RAW version that supports Olympus E-5 RAW files?
You will need to be patient. Adobe has to deal with new camera models from a whole host of manufacturers and updates ACR as quickly as practicably possible.
In the meantime try shooting RAW+jpeg, if possible.
Anyone who buys a "hot off the press" camera is going to have to wait for raw support. Not just from Adobe, but from any software producer. Support must be added for each individual camera model. It really isn't going to help start one of these, "I can't believe Adobe doesn't support my camera" threads that we have seen time and time again. Adobe will provide support for that camera as soon as possible. And nobody who knows isn't going to tell you anything different. In the meantime, you can use the raw software provided by the camera maker, or you can experiment with loading your JPEG images into Camera Raw. That isn't the same thing, I know. But it will give you something to experiment with while you are waiting.
I'm still waiting...
waiting for what???
You made your point clear and I agree with you. However, Camera Raw 6.3 is not out yet and it was mentioned clearly in the main page that more cameras maybe added in the final release.
- Will additional camera or lens support be available in the final release?
- It is possible that additional cameras or lenses will be supported in the final release.
Therefore, it wouldn't hurt asking the nice people of Adobe to try to include the E-5 to the final release of camera raw if possible, since the final release expected to come out sometime in January 2011.
I have called Adobe repeatedly.
But I wasn't aware that there was a final release in January.
I may call again.
The current beta expire in December 31st, 2010
- When will the Camera Raw 6.3 release candidate expire?

Please update to Camera Raw 6.3 for adequate support. The update is available now!
I got this message after installing the Application Manager and attempting to install the Adobe Camera RAW Update:
"Some updates failed to install Update is not applicable"
Thanks Adobe, with ACR 6.3
everything works just fine with my E-5!
