    Wouldn't it be easier to use the latest RC of Adobe's DNG Converter program, 8.4 IIRC, and convert the files to DNG?

    I tried, but still can't get it to work. I have LR 3.x on Win7 and seems to be very different from the one mentioned in the post.

    The wait continues....

    Only if you want to end up with DNGs. The beauty of this approach is that it's painless - none of your ORFs change so when official E-M10 support is added, you get that seamlessly.

    It'll only work if you have a version of Lightroom that supports the E-PM2 to begin with. Lightroom 3.x does not. In fact it doesn't any of the 16MP Olympus cameras, so you're out of luck, unless you go to DNGs.

    If E-M5 you need to be on at least Lightroom 4.1. If E-M1 you need Lightroom 5.3. No support yet for E-M10.


    The first number after the file type (ORF) is the minimum release of the Adobe raw file converter. The last number is the minimum release of Lightroom.

    I am the poster of the hack on dpreview.
    If there is interest, I can for sure make this work on Windows as well.

    Another reason I'm falling out of love with Adobe in general. Not supporting their products for more than even a year to get you to buy the next one, can't even open a CS5.5 InDesign file in CS5, etc. Is it really that difficult to add these cameras to an older version of ACR that's only 3 years old? For all the hate on Microsoft or Windows, at least XP was supported for over 12 years.

    Adobe will for sure update LR to support the E-M10, it just takes time. There are 3 workarounds available to make E-M10 RAW files editable, so at least we have something.

    While that may be true of a newer version of Lightroom, it is not true of Adobe Camera Raw for Photoshop pre-CS6. I have started just shooting JPEG's with the EM10 as my work-around since the Olympus software is a bit clunky and converting to DNG is slow and doesn't always properly convert the images (ie: get strange artifacts on the DNG files).

    It doesn't take time more time than to update Adobe Camera Raw.
    ACR already supports E-M10 so I don't know why LR isn't.
    If they need to make a bigger update of some functions, they can make another release later.

    Work around for images that have to be in LR now.....use the olympus app to import the ORF files and export as TIF which LR should be able to import and edit.
