Why DNG can't open my new Cam G95?

Hi,

Am using Mac, OS El Capitan. I’m using photoshop CS5 and not CC. I used to shoot RAW with a 3 yr old camera GX8, convert the images to DNG and open in ACR and subsequently in CS5. Without converting, I won’t able to open the images at all. So all these yrs I have successfully circumvent the problem.

 

Recently I purchased a newer camera Panasonic G95, upgraded the DNG converter to v10.5 which is the highest version that EC can recognise. I still can’t open the RAW.

 

Is the DNG converter v10.5 not developed to recognise this latest camera yet, or I need to go higher version like 11.4? But I can’t install any version more than 10.5

 

I learned from some articles that I can change the Exif info to lower brand of camera to trick the converter (something like that). Has anyone gone this path successfully? Even if yes, I tried not to do this trick. Still prefer the DNG conversion.

 

What’s the best course of action whilst retaining my OS and CS5

 

Worst case, I’m prepare to subscribe to CC but will the latest CC recognise my El Capitan OS as well as G95 cam? This will be my very very last resort. 

Tks for all helps

Hi
It says here that the DC-G95  needs camera raw 11.3 (which would also mean the same version of the DNG convertor)

Tks Dave for quick response.

Ok Tks, saw it

Concerning my last para, can CC support El Capitan and read G95 RAW? How do I get confirmation on this before I jump into subscribing.

Has anyone taken changing the Exif info route to fool the converter?

Hi

The system requirements for CC2019 (v20.0) are macOS version 10.12 (Sierra), macOS version 10.13 (High Sierra), or macOS version 10.14 (Mojave)  https://helpx.adobe.com/uk/photoshop/system-requirements.html

Currently , a subscription allows you download CC2018 (v19.0) for which system requirements are macOS version 10.13 (High Sierra), macOS version 10.12 (Sierra), or Mac OS X version 10.11 (El Capitan) https://helpx.adobe.com/uk/photoshop/system-requirements/earlier-versions.html

 

The camera raw version needed is 11.3 and both CC2018 and CC2019 are compatible with the latest camera raw which is 11.4  https://helpx.adobe.com/camera-raw/kb/camera-raw-compatible-applications.html

But Camera raw 11.0 is also listed listed as requiring OS 10.12 or upward so it looks like you will need to upgrade your OS to make this work with your camera.
I use Windows so I cannot test for you

I can't answer your exif question as I do not have the camera or the older versions of DNG /Camera raw loaded

Thks Dave for the very detail guidance and explanation. Upgrading my OS to a point where I need to subscribe to CC will be the very last resort. To be honest, my work does not justify the monthly subscription.

I gonna take one step at a time. Any idea up to which level Mac OS I can upgrade whilst CS5 still operable. Right now my CS5 has no issue at all with El Capitan. And with the upgraded OS would enable me to dn load DNG v11.3. I can’t find a reliable Photoshop compatibility guide with Mac OS. I gone thru quite substantial read on this photoshop forum and CS5 compatibility issue with which highest Mac OS seems not conclusive. It did not specifically nailed and stop at a certain OS.

The missing link am searching, like which min OS can dn load DNG 11.3 is crucial too. Does my thought make any sense? 

Tks
