I have just purchased a canon 80d and Lightroom 2 ver. 2.7 will not import or open cr2 files taken with this camera. Any suggestions?
Your LR version is very old and at the time it was released the 80d was unknown.
You either need to update your Lightroom (subscription) or use the free DNG converter and import the DNG into you old LR version.
Are you using the newer Cloud Centric Lightroom or a very old Traditional version of LR?
Even if you are using the newer Cloud Centric LR version it is now up to version 3.x IIRC. So your version is also old for that newer version of LR.
Please state the Exact type of LR you are using. A screen shot of the user interface would help.
But wouldn't be too old for the 80D.
Thanks heaps for everyones prompt reply to my problem. I guess I'll just have to get myself a newer version of Lightroom.....I knew that anyways, but I just didn't want to admit it. 🙂
All you need it the Free Adobe DNG converter program to convert those CR2 files to DNG file that will import into your current version of LR.
Although a newer LR Classic version would be the best thing to do.
