eos 5 mk II to adobe bridge

Hello everyone. I'm new at this.
I have just got myself the new eos 5 mk II and it's great. I am shooting raw but am unable to open the files in adobe bridge. can anyone make any suggestions on where i need to go. It has been working just fine with my 30D.
Thanks for your help. Have a great weekend.

At a guess I'd say you may need to visit Adobe site and download the 'stuff' to enable your copy of Bridge/Photoshop to read the 5DII raw files

Welcome to Pixalo Jacqui

John is probably right. What version of Photoshop are you running?

I have a feeling that the 5d mkII files need ACR 5 or 5.2, and they are not compatible with CS3 which only has ACR up to 4.6.

Re: eos 5 mk II to adobe bridge

CS2 was released a while before the Canon 5DII and so it doesn't offer support for its RAW files. Unfortunately if you want to use Photoshop and bridge to work on the RAW files then you will have to update to CS4.

A cheaper alternative would be to process the files in the supplied Canon software and output those as .TIFF's and then you'll be able to futher adjust them in your version of Photoshop.

Re: eos 5 mk II to adobe bridge

That is a great suggestion from Steve

If, for any reason you don't like the supplied software you could see if the latest version of Photoshop Elements has ACR that supports the 5D mkII and export tiff or psd from there to CS2, or try Lightroom2 and export tiff or psd to CS2.

Steve's idea won't cost you a penny, but my suggestions will. It really all depends on if you are happy with the Canon software.

Just had another thought - Faststone is a free download and can export to CS2 as well.

Re: eos 5 mk II to adobe bridge

Alternatively just download the latest version Adobe DNG converter (free). This converts your 5D MkII Raw files to DNG and you can then process them in your version of Adobe Raw. However, as you have CS2 there were substantial changes in CS3 and some more useful chnages in CS4, so it may be worth your while buying the Upgrade to CS4 anyway.

Re: eos 5 mk II to adobe bridge

thanks for all your help. lots to think about. I was hoping not to have to upgrade to cs4. So used to my cs2

Hubby won't be happy about having to spend more money .... not after just buying new mk II and 24 to 70 2.8L as well !!!!!
