Is there a codec available yet to allow ms windows 7 to display 5d3 raw files?

Hi,
The Australian support site for Canon lists the Windows 7-compatible codec here:

Note: this coded is not supported in 64-bit mode (what a pity!  :( )

You can install the free Microsoft raw codec for 64 bit, it decodes many different cameras, canon and others as well.
It does not work for the MK III or D800, they are a little slow adding new models.

If you get a registery error like I did, the fix is here.

Thanks for sharing this.  I cautioned myself on the 64 bit download as I have an Intel not AMD (misleading description of the EXE).  I have confirmed the 64 bit version will work for AMD based CPU's and Intel.  The registry entry link worked without a hitch and all RAW files are visible in Explorer.  Thanks again
Thanks

The AMD in the description confuses everyone, but it works for all 64 bit processors.
