    I have been using RAW files for years now with my Nikon DSLRs and Photoshop CS4 and now CS5.

    A few weeks ago I bought a new Canon G15 as a more portable option, my version of CS5 won't read the RAW files from this camera because (as I assume) it's too new, and the latest ACR seems to be for CS6 only. So having heard of the Adobe DNG converter, I downloaded it from the website, however when I attempt to select the images for conversion (ie the Canon RAW files) I select the folder they are in but the program sees it as empty and displays "no items match your search" so obviously at the moment these files are unusable to me.

    Does anyone know why this happens and how can I solve the problem, as one of the main reasons for buying the compact was it's ability to shoot in RAW, or is it that as I suspect, that as yet the camera is still too new for the ACR and DNG programs to catch up and issue the relevant update, so I'll just have to wait.

    Thanks

    Paul

    You could use the DPP software that came with the camera. The current incarnation is pretty effective.

    I agree with mrcal, Canon DPP software is actually very good.

    Paul, you might find it a bit unintuitive at first. Have a look at the DPP workflow videos on YouTube.

    I think you'll find these incredibly useful

    I am in a similar position having just got a 650D and using cs5. I use the dng converter. What works for me is ,I first create a folder on the desktop, find the files on the memory card and drag them into the new folder. Open dng converter and select the new folder, then make any settings for where to save to etc. then click convert. The new dng files then open in cs5 ACR and can be processed as usual.
    Hope this works for you. If not maybe adobe have not caught up with the G15.

    I have this exact problem. I just purchased a G15 and would like to shoot RAW.

    I posted on the Adobe forums and got a range of answers. The short term solution for me is to shoot Jpeg.

    Adobe Camera RAW supports the CR2 format used in the G15 for the G10, 11, and 12, but not the G15 camera. I suspect that the program queries the camera and when it doesn't find it on the supported list, stops processing. It probably could read the CR2 format just fine.

    I hope that Adobe will release a fix soon, since it doesn't seem like huge change.

    In the meantime, I'm exploring the great in camera processing for Jpeg's.

    Use Canon DPP and you can use the same processing out of camera on your computer screen with your raw files.

    Try downloading/upgrading your DNG converter to 7.3
