Adobe Camera Raw Update Question
8 months ago

I am using Lightroom 4 and Photoshop CS6.

I'm interested in a few new cameras, but someone told me that if I buy any of them I will either have to update to Lightroom 5 and/or subscribe to Adobe CC, because my existing software won't read their RAW files, and applying new ACR updates won't matter.

The specific camera we talked about is the Panasonic LF1. But I was told my editing software will not be able to recognize RAW files from many of the latest new cameras, as is.

Is this true?

Could I use Panasonic software to edit LF1 RAW files and then move them into my versions of LR/PS as a work-around?

Would it be enough to update to LR5, but forego the CC thing?

Thanks.
