Lightroom 5.7 Brings RAW Support For Nikon D750, Canon 7D Mk II, LX100 And More!

By Anthony Thurston on November 19th 2014

Praise the Almighty! Those of you who have a D750, 7D Mark II, LX100 or other new camera release have been toiling in a land where Lightroom doesn’t support our RAW files. But alas, the wait is over.

Lightroom 5.7 Released

Today, Adobe announced the release of Lightroom 5.7 (as well as ACR 8.7) which, among other things, brings with it support for most of the new cameras released during the gauntlet of Photokina and PhotoPlus. This means that once you are updated, you will finally be able to take a look at those RAW files, and not just jpegs. Hallelujah!

New camera support is not all that the new update brings with it. Alongside the new RAW support, Lightroom 5.7 brings built-in support for importing from iPhoto or Aperture (previously a plugin was needed to do this), and some improvements to Synced Collections.


Full Listing of Added Camera Support


For full details on the rest of the updates (lens profile updates, and addition tethered support for cameras) included in Lightroom 5.7, you can head on over to Adobe’s announcement page and give it a good once over.

Lightroom 5.7 should be dropping to your Creative Cloud soon, or if you have Lightroom, only you can download the update via Adobe’s announcement page.

    Glad to hear this news, but it would be even better if Pocket Wizzards anounced full iTTL support for the Nikon D750 right away.

    Glad to hear that I can jump right into Lightroom after getting my d750! :)

    if they could only get the colors right… they’ve lost me to capture one pro for initial edits so I can get true nikon colors

      If you’re working with Lightroom, why not invest in the X-rite Color Checker Passport? Just load the preset from one RAW shot, and you’re in business. When the light changes, shoot another RAW. You’ll be surprised at how well this works. Also, you will not have to learn another processing program.

      I already use a spyderpro but that’s not the issue… If I load the raw files into lightroom it doesn’t import the colors as they should be, if I load them say with nikons software they are right one, if I load them in capture one they are almost right on but way better than lightroom does.

      Adobe acknowledges this and blames it on the camera manufactures which is typical above bs, it’s hard to believe them anymore when everyone else gets it right which sucks because everything else in lightroom is pretty great except it’s uber use of resources and it’s slowness

    At last, tethered capture for the D810!

    This would be much less of an issue if camera makers supported DNG (some do, such as Pentax) such that waiting for Adobe to update wasn’t necessary.

      I agree, its pretty stupid. But I think we will have a universal file format about the same time that we can buy EF mount Nikkor glass and F mount L glass…
