    I've just bought myself a Canon G9 largely because it is a compact that shots in RAW. But none of my programmes will process them, so Capture one, Rawshooter and CS2 just won't cut it.
    Does anyone else have the same issue if so what programmes do you use to convert CR2 files?

    Does not the ZoomBrowser software that came with the camera do it?

    The EOS 30D produces CR2 files. I use Adobe Camera Raw (CS2) to open them but, I did have a considerable amount of problems getting ACR to open them when I first got the 30D. See here for my tale of woe.

    ZoomBrowser and Digital Photo Professional both i think comes with your camera will open CR2 raw files.Did mine anyway.

    Capture One, Rawshooter and CS2 (using Adobe Camera Raw) do process RAW files.

    The trick is that you need to update the software to include the necessary information about the camera. Your edition of C1, CS2 and Rawshooter were produced before the G9 came out so they don't include the information needed to process the files.

    You can no longer get updates for Rawshooter, so concentrate on the other two. You should be able to get an up-to-date version of ACR for your CS2, and you may have a free update for C1 depending on when you got it.

    Go to the product websites and see what you can find.

    The others are right that your G9 also came with DPP which will open the files until you update your other software.

    Thanks for all this info. The Canon software is OK, but I have got used to using capture one with my 300D and I like the way it works, hence the question.
    I have tried updating the software but so far it hasn't done the trick. I'll keep at it and let you know if I have any success.

    Thanks

    Have you tried the V4 Beta, it has a number of the new cameras included.

    How annoying.

    I am using C1 LE with a 30D and haven't had to update it yet.

    I am sure someone will spot this who has had a similar problem to you - they might have more exact advice.

    From what I can see no Raw converters currently support the G9 (except for the Canon ones of cause) .
