Hi,

I hadn't given a thought to whether the G1X RAW format would be supported by Lightroom or not, but it turns out not.

I get the following message when trying to import:

"The file is from a camera which is not recognized by the raw format support in Lightroom"

I'm running Lightroom 3.6 with Camera RAW 6.6. Is it just a case of waiting for the next camera raw update?

Thanks,
Russ

Yes it's a matter of time. Just wait for an update.

The Nikon D4 will be available next month and I doubt that Adobe will need much more time to come up with an update, most probably Lightroom 4. The next version will most probably support the G1X.

Uh oh, that did it for me. Gotta keep the g12 now since updates are needed for LR. I don't think I need to explain further

Switch to DxO Optics Pro. It rocks. I'm actually shocked DxO released their update before Adobe did.

I use LR, but DPP certainly works until the update comes. If I really want the best IQ I can get, DPP trumps LR.

Iv,e been shooting high quality Jpegs for the first time for 5 years with the G1X, not finding it much f a problem. Will probably wait for the update which I,m expecting sometime in April.

Jpegs have been looking fine in Lightroom 3. It will soon be updated.

I'd guess there must be a way to convert them to DNG..? Lightroom will be happy with those. Had exactly the same issue when I moved to G12 from 30D.

Be very surprised indeed if Adobe don't include G1X RAW processing info when LR4 launches fairly soon. LR4 beta is a substantial improvement on 3.

I normally work exclusively in RAW format but with my G1X I have actually been using SCN setting and have been more than a little pleasantly surprised by the IQ.

Mind you, this may well be an observation of my RAW processing skills on previous cameras but I hope not!

Not really had a chance to get out and about with camera yet but what I've taken out of the window and round the house looks a very promising start indeed.

Loving mine so far!

The software from Canon is usually the best RAW converter. So the G1X probably comes with a very accurate converter. I agree that it is convenient to use Adobe LR or Photoshop modules, but really the best and most accurate converter is from Canon.

I think you'll find there is a fair bit of discussion about that. DPP is certainly a bit 'clunky' compared with LR and has nothing like the range of control over the final image nor, for example the superb soft proofing facility now built in to the latest LR4.
Final image results would more probably be more a matter of 'taste' than a clear objective assessment that one is 'better' than the other, IMHO of course!

I agree with Spear.... I've found that using the manufacturers converter to go from raw to tiff and then working on the tiff in CS5 usually gives the best results... That was especially true for my sigma DP1 which doesn't use a Bayer sensor... The Photoshop conversion was awful (muddy) until not long ago when they must have updated their adobe raw software...

But I am lazy now and just use camera raw unless the picture is really special...
