Toshi Terada, head of Olympus DSLR product planning department, whom I interviewed (http://fourthirds-user.com/2010/03/lunch_with_olympus_manager_of_slr_product_planning .php) recently, has informed me that Olympus is working with Adobe to add the E-600 to the list of cameras officially supported by Adobe Camera RAW (and so Lightroom). I don't have a timescale though.

Hi Ian,

I am new to the forum.
I am trying to download raw files from my E-600 on to Lightroom 2. Do you have any more news about when Adobe will be supporting the E-600? Do you have any advice on how I can get around it in the meantime?

Thanks Jim,

I was hoping to use Lightroom as I have been getting good results with it. I herd its possible to change the model name to E620 in the metadata files. The E620 is compatible with lightroom. Unfortunately I am not very good with computers and find the EXIF editing software impossible to use.


Cheers

You can use Lightroom just by changing the camera type using ExifTool as you say, and to make it kids play for you, see below...

Download it from here (http://www.mediafire.com/?x2zmjrjzyyt).

I've already set it up for the GUI interface, etc, and doesn't install in Windows in any way, so all you need to do is extract it somewhere, then create a shortcut from ExifToolGUI.exe in the extracted folder to the desktop.

Once you run it, just browse to the folder with the images where you want to change the EXIF camera type from E-600 to E-620 - click on the first image thumbnail and press Ctrl+A to select all images.

Click the small arrow under the EXIF button to change it for all selected images.

Untick 'Backup' at the bottom left, then simply change and 'Save' the camera type.

Hi DekHog,

Many Thanks. I followed your advice. This works really well, lightroom now recognizes my raw files. Your help is most appreciated.

Cheers

I expect it will be supported in the next update of Adobe Camera RAW. 5.7 has just been released. Fingers crossed there will be a 5.8 before attention switches to version 6 (at this stage support for LR2 will be dropped in favour of LR3).

As to when - sorry, no idea, but end of June is looking likely for LR3 release.

Thanks for that. Great News about ACR supporting E600. However I suspect it will not be compatible with Lightroom 2.7 / Photoshop CS4. Please tell me I'm wrong.

Unfortunately, as I predicted yesterday in another thread, it's Adobe Camera RAW 6.1, so you will need Adobe Photoshop CS5. Presumably, there is a version 6.1 of Adobe's DNG converter, so you can convert to DNG RAW format and then use in LR2.7 or CS4.

Don't know if this is old news but Adobe DNG Converter 6.1 supports the E-600 so you don't need to use ExifTool to change the camera type to E-620.
