So this might be a fairly newbie question, but in all fairness I guess I am a newbie to dslrs. Anyhow, Im having difficulty importing my .RW2 files from my GF1 to my computer. The file thumbnails do not preview the shot on my computer, which I suspect might be natural, but my LightRoom will not recognize these files, so I cannot import them there. I checked the Panny site for software / driver add ons but didn't see anything that looked like it was what I needed.

Anyone know what I need to do? :confused:

Thanks!

Justin, hang in there...and I'm sure you'll get some help. I do use Lightroom but am not sure why your files aren't importing. Do yo download them to your desk top and then import them? Have you used Lightroom before with another camera or even this one and has it worked fine before?

I think someone that is more of a technical sort will be able to help you better than I. I am too "right brained", I think.:redface:

This is probably a simple tweak, so if you don't get an answer tonight - stay tuned!

Happy new year, to you, as well!:wink:

In this case I did download the files to my hard drive before trying to import them to LR.

Ive used LR before, but only with my point and shoot so the files were simple JPG or JPEGs, so I had no problems, which Im also having no problem with the JPEGS im shooting now with the GF1, just the RW2 files are the only ones giving me trouble. Im not too worried though, Im sure this isnt a tough fix!
