    So I'm still relatively new to Lightroom (and photography in general) but I just wondering why people before would say that Lightroom does not support .orf raw files? Or that it does not support em-10 raw files? I've always been able to edit the images. Is there some other features more specific to the camera that I don't know about? Basically what do they mean when they say Lightroom does not support a certain camera or a cameras raw files?

    Thanks everyone!

    Raw files don't have a standard format and differ from one camera to the next. Raw processors such as Lightroom need to have specific code to handle each camera. Lightroom handles many Oly raw files (.orf), but I think the e-M10, being a new camerra, isn't yet supported.

    There is almost always a delay in getting raw support for new cameras. That's true for Lightroom, Aperture and all the rest.

    It's not a question of delay to support new cameras.

    The E-M10 is supported by Adobe Camera Raw 8.4, which has exactly the same RAW processing as Lightroom.
    Lightroom and ACR are always released together... except this time;)
    There was no Lightroom 5.4 when ACR 8.4 was out.

    First off I Must ask, if you know what a Raw file is; because when you say "I've always been able to edit the images" I wonder if you are just shooting *.jpg files only. You see, jpeg files are a standard file format that no one would have any problem with editing in any program from any camera. A RAW file can have many different extensions. It is basically the digital negative equivalent of an image and can be different from camera to camera.

    A raw file is not really an image. It's data that is used to produce an image.
    You don't edit it, you post process it.
    And you don't visualize it, you can only see an interpretation of its data based on current settings.

    That they are preparing something else for the next version of lightroom (5.4? 6.0?) and that we are waiting for that.
    Not for them to get to know how to support the e-m10 and the other cameras that are included in acr 8.4.

    It is what it is. I have been using LR since before v.1 and there have been plenty of delays, rational and otherwise. As you point out, there's a lot more going on with LR than with ACR.

    I have been shooting in raw format. Since I've had my camera the .orf files load fine into Lightroom and I'm able to edit them.

    Modifying the raw files is not the best thing to do imho...
    You've got to modify them the other way when the update is available.
    Or else you'd miss every e-m10 specific support... And all e-m10 color profiles.
