A99ii support?

Hi Adobe, Will you be adding support for the a99ii (Sony camera) soon?

I can send you some raw files if you need them.  (Well later today - I'm expecting delivery of my camera this morning)

cheers

Well, not days or weeks, but hours.   We pushed 9.8 live this morning, with support for this camera:

Re: A99ii support?

As a stop-gap, a user on dyxum.com showed us how to trick LR into thinking the A99ii is a A7Rii.  with exiftool, type this command:

exiftool -SonyModelID="ILCE-7RM2" *.arw

LR still lists the raw files as A99ii but now reads them.  The output from LR with the A99ii raw files looks good but maybe adobe will tweak things a little further with official support....

Re: A99ii support?

Yes I've done this but on a Mac it's a painful process and only works if done on individual files for some reason. Kind of a Mickey Mouse way to use a $4k camera

Re: A99ii support?

I suppose this is the pain we feel as Early Adopters.  Sony provides IDC for raw conversion and I suppose there is no other software house *required* to provide support at all.

luckily for us, Adobe are generally quick off the mark to add new cameras and as they stated above, they already have an a99ii to work on.   Fingers crossed it won't be too much longer..

Re: A99ii support?

Hi Jeff,

Do you have any idea if it'll be in the upcoming days or weeks? Capture One is already supporting it since more than a week now... Thanks, Chris

Re: A99ii support?

So I do not have CC but the 5.7 which has current updates. I just bought an A99ii and shot a wedding with it only to import and receive the Preview unvailable message. Will this update work for me? If not, what to do?

There's no way of importing A99 II Raw files into Lightroom 5. You need Lightroom 6.8 or later.

Options:

  1. Join the Cloud, install Lightroom CC 2015, update to 2015.10 and import A99 II Raw files, or
  2. Upgrade to Lightroom 6, update to 6.10 then import and edit your Raw files, or
  3. Free option: stay with Lightroom 5, download and install the free Adobe DNG converter, batch convert all Raw files to DNG format then import the DNG files (NOT the Raw files) into Lightroom 5. An extra step for you but no extra cost.
    Digital Negative (DNG), Adobe DNG Converter | Adobe Photoshop CC

Re: A99ii support?

Omg! Thanks so much for getting back to me. I wasnt expecting a response so soon!

Based on feedback from the LR users is CC favorable versus the upgrade to LR 6 or vice versa?

It's entirely your choice. There's no better or worse. Just what suits you best. Weigh up the pros and cons and decide for yourself.

CC: monthly payments forever (you never own the software), all updates and upgrades are included at no extra cost. You're always up to date.

Version 6 Standalone: one-off payment to upgrade. No more costs. Minor updates are free. But no more new features or major upgrades without paying for another upgrade (e.g. Lightroom 7 - if there is one).

Alternatively, do nothing and stay with version 5. Convert all Raw files to DNG using the DNG converter prior to importing them into Lightroom 5.
