Hi All,
I've taken some pictures in raw format (CR2) with my Canon 7D last night but can't open the files with my Photoshop CS3. It says 'cannot complete your request because it is not the right kind of documents'. However, I have no problem viewing it with Zoom Browser EX neither I have any problem opening my raw files (with Photoshop CS2) previously taken with my 400D. Is there any diff with 7D's raw? Did anybody encounter this?

need to use the dng converter that's provided by adobe? Adobe doesn't support raw formats for the newer camera bodies in CS3, as they "probably" want you to upgrade to CS4.

Once adobe supports 7d raw....

Shouldnt it be available to open to all photoshop products ?

I was hoping to open the files in photoshop elements once the raw format is supported

There should be no need to upgrade

You'll need to use the free Adobe dng converter if you want to use older PS/elements products.

http://www.adobe.com/support/downloads/detail.jsp?ftpID=4576

"Adobe DNG Converter
The Adobe DNG Converter, a free utility that converts files from more than 200 cameras to DNG, enables you to easily convert camera-specific raw files to a more universal DNG raw file. Visit the Camera Raw page for a complete list of supported cameras."

I share your agony too..as I am in a similiar situation. I have more than a thousand shots from my recent trip that I can't open.....:cry:

Some consolation is that the current Adobe Camera RAW 5.5 seems to be able to open full size RAW files from 7D but not the smaller MRAW files.

Full size RAW files are huge but.. it is better than not able to open any raw files from 7D at all.

Please share with us if this works for you.

Other than that, we will have to patiently wait for Camera Raw 5.6....:cry::cry:
