CS4 and 5D markIII

Apologies if this has been discussed already, but I couldn't find anything. Are the RAW files of the 5DIII compatible with CS4 Extended?

I'm pretty sure the answer is no. Adobe really wants to get people to upgrade to the most recent version.

It seems all the samples on the web are JPEG though.

No, you won't be able to get an update to the RAW processing for CS4 that will handle files from the 5D Mark III. Adobe does not release updates for older versions to support new camera models - it has been that way for a long time.

I don't know if there will be an update for CS5 (possibly, given that CS6 is still in beta, isn't it?).

New version of ACR coming for CS5 which opens 5D3 RAW's.

I believe there is a new 'release candidate' of ACR for Photoshop CS5 which is supposed to open 5D3 files.

Well, that's what it implies here at least:

I wondered why the ball kept getting bigger, then it hit me.

Re: CS4 and 5D markIII

You mean it is not possible to install ACR6.7 in Photoshop CS4?

Re: CS4 and 5D markIII

The only way is to use the Adobe DNG converter and convert the files to DNG format. I'm doing this to process RAWs from my 5D2 in CS3. It's an extra step but it works fine.

Re: CS4 and 5D markIII

Do you mean that if I open a 5DIII RAW file in CS4 with ACR5.7 I can view it and work on it, but if I want to save it, it has to be saved as DNG?

I tried to update to the ACR6.7 beta through CS4 Extended and it failed.

Alternatively, you could buy Lightroom 4 at its new low price and make use of its good cataloguing facilities as well.

Re: CS4 and 5D markIII

dpreview has a preview of the 5D3 and you can download the raw files on the comparison page. That is what I did to take a good look at the 5D3 high ISO raw images.

There is a free ACR update that allows CS5 to understand the 5D3 raw files, but it is a beta and I don't know if it would work with CS4. You could download and try it.

I have downloaded it and it works with CS5. I have tested it on the 5D3 raw images available from the dpreview preview of the camera.
