Olympus E-600 raw problems

I have just purchased a Olympus E-600 but I find it does not have a RAW converter in Adobe CS4. The olympus one is next to useless. I want to use CS4 to adjust my RAW files, any suggestions on how I can do this and when and how will I know when Adobe launch a RAW convertor for my camera

Convert to DNG and then carry on with CS4.

Adobe has a history of abandoning support for older versions of ps so your only way would be to upgrade to ps5, I am still using ps3 and unable to access 5dm2 files so have to use the canon software or as mike has said use DNG.

Hi Mike. I have a E600 too. I either change the exif data to E620 using an Exif editor or use Kolev . Adobe DNG convertor does not support the E600 yet. On recent posts on another site Olympus state that they are working with Adobe to release an update very soon. I could not get RawTherapee to load my raw files (kept crashing)


Ps. Just got RawTherapee to work but prefer Kolev.

Update......it's crashed again!

Hi I am struggling to find one for photoshop CS3 with my E620. I am using the Olympus one but not overly hazppy with it, maybe due to lack of knowledge. Is there anyone out there using the Olympus program? Triumph (Olwen)

I just got an E5 so looked at the Olympus converter...kind of minimally Ok, but as Paul Morgan suggests, Silkypix is very good, and worth the extra step in the workflow. It's quirky and takes a bit of getting used to, especially with it being japanese with some strange wordings, but pretty powerful and I'm getting to like it more and more. There's a good free trial so why not give it a try?
