The Canon DPP is buggy on my mac and keep rebooting my mac when I do convert and save. Hope this DNG converter will help. Currently is transferring the image to my Android phone and edit from there. :(

Just got my R5 today and disappointed Adobe hasn’t updated ACR to work yet, just DNG converter and that’s a beta.
I thought my CFexpress card had an issue when it came up with unable to import image as corrupted. :eek: I then realised it was Lightroom not the card. Phew. But so disappointing that Adobe are slow off the mark. I bet they have had access to the code for months so really frustrating it doesn't support the R5.

Adobe still has no profile for the RP and M6II and only a hacked profile for the R. So I'm not really expecting Adobe to catch up in 2020.

I never had any issues downloading RAW files from my R into Lightroom Classic and it converted them straight to DNG. I'm not an expert in Lightroom and didn't download any extra software so may be missing something?

I'm happy with the processing of my R files in Lightroom. Why do you say the profile is hacked?

Adobe has said they based it on the 5D4 profile, they didn't do it from scratch. We know at least the microlenses are different between the 5d4 and R, maybe the CFA has been tweaked as well.
Having said that, the few pictures I took with the (rented) R and imported into LR looked good enough to me. It was the M6II that triggered me, all skin tones are zombie grey for my kids. Thanks to sunblock and judicious use of sun hats, they are milk-bottle pale toddlers, so there's not much colour to work with, but they aren't zombies :)

Thanks to prodding by @privatebydesign I now have a colour passport to create custom profiles, which I will to when my R5 gets here. Or when the rental r5 shows up in 2 weeks, whichever happens first.

Hi, I have located the DNG converter and installed it. I'm pretty sure everything was done OK, however when I go to select a file, it finds the card, but all of the images are greyed out and cannot be selected. Any ideas? I've tried uninstalling and installing again but nope, no change. Soo frustrating

It worked fine on files on my hard disk. Perhaps it doesn't work on files on a card and you need to copy them to a hard disk first?

Thanks for your help. I have managed to sort the issue and it was nothing wrong with the DNG Converter, my card or MAC. Basically, I assumed you select the files in the folder but in actuality you just select the folder and then the converter imports all the files within that folder and converts them all, saving them to a folder of your choice which you can then import into Lightroom. Sorted. My bad, it was me and not the programme but all good now, although it's a bit long winded to do but no other alternative until Adobe add the R5 Plugin to Lightroom. :ROFLMAO:
