Default RAW image in 60D

Just yesterday I got my new Canon 60D. It looks a lovely toy and then I took some pictures in JPG format. This morning I changed the setting to RAW.

In RAW format there are three setting: RAW, MRAW and SRAW. I set it on RAW and took a few pictures.

Then I wanted them to be edited in Light room. I imported the picture. But there it said "Some import operation were not performed" and said "unknown errors occurred".

I do not understand what has gone wrong. I have edited many pictures in the past in Light room in the same way and this is the first time I have come across such a problem . What could have gone wrong? Was the RAW setting wrong ?

Please advice.

Which version of Lightroom do you have?

Support for the 60D wasn't added until Lightroom 3.2 (ACR 6.2). If you have an earlier version of LR, you'll either need to upgrade to a newer version, or convert your RAW files to DNG format using the free Adobe DNG converter before you can process them.

Yup sounds like you need an update.

You'll need to upgrade to a newer version (3.3 is the latest now, but 3.2 also supports the 60D) if you want Lightroom to support your RAW files directly.

Or, you can use the free DNG converter (and I'd download the latest 6.3 version) and convert them to DNG format instead (and then you can process the DNG files in your older version of Lightroom). You'll find download links on this page:

http://www.adobe.com/products/dng/index.html

Basically, the way Adobe works, you have to upgrade to a newer version periodically to get support for the latest cameras, as they tend to stop upgrading older versions to support new cameras after significant changes to Adobe Camera RAW. For example, you'll need Photoshop CS5 to use ACR versions 6.x (and 6.2 or higher is required for your 60D), since newer 6.x versions of ACR won't run under CS4; and you'll need Lightroom 3.2 or higher (3.3 is the latest) if you want direct support for your 60D's raw files with LR.

Adobe CS4 will support it with the new Camera Raw plugin, had to do it when I bought my Mark IV but it doesnt work very well, the images import but the IQ is poor.

LR on the other hand does require an update to the latest version. For now I have ceased using LR as a result. My workflow now is Canon DPP for RAW and convert to JPEG, TIFF or DNG before processing with CS4 if needed.

The last Camera Raw plugin for CS4 was 5.7. It does not support the EOS-60D (which wasn't added until ACR 6.2, requiring CS5 if you want to use it).

ACR 5.6 and ACR 5.7 support your Mark IV (it was added in 5.6):

http://www.adobe.com/support/downloa...jsp?ftpID=4623

But, you'll need CS5 using ACR 6.2 or higher if you want support for the 60D.

You'll find the cameras supported by ACR 5.7 in this readme doc for it (the 60D was not included in the last [final] update for CS4).

For what it's worth I certainly think the upgrade to LR v3 is worth the money.

There are a few very nice improvements, and certainly the image processing pipeline has be improved quite a lot in a number of areas.

You can upgrade to the latest version of LR for $99 (at least in the U.S.) You'll see a link to upgrade on the left side of this page:
