I just bought a new camera. Canon 40D. I tried a few test shots and tried to import into Lightroom but I get an error about an "unsupported color mode". Photos were shot in RAW (not sRAW). Color mode was Adobe RGB. Version of Lightroom is 1.2 (the latest).

I find other people that had this trouble when doing a google search, but usually they were using sRAW and were ok when using RAW. I tried reinstalling the latest version of Lightroom. Still does not work.

Can anyone help?

I found the answer. 40D's are now shipping with an "upgraded" version of firmware. This is V1.04. This firmware version is causing problems for Lightroom when reading the RAW files. Supposedly there will be a firmware update to fix this by the end of the month. I am dissapointed. I guess I cannot use Lightroom with the new camera for a while.

I found this on the Adobe forum - maybe it can help


Are you trying to import off the card with the camera attached to the computer or through a card reader? If the first then I believe there is a bug with respect to downloading from Canon cameras.
The best option imo is to down load from a card reader to your HDD then import from the HDD into lightroom.

Good Luck!

Thanks for the reply.

I do not load from the flash card with it in the camera. I have a reader built in to my PC.

After researching this further I have found out about the new V1.0.4 firmware version which is causing the problem. Lightroom will have a fix for this out sometime this month and Canon will have another firmware version out at the end of the month to fix it too. For now I will need to use DPP as my RAW converter b/c it works ok with that. I will probably convert to TIFF and then import to Lightroom that way. But I hope there is a fix out for this real soon.

I am off now to try the camera for the first time other than reading the manual and trying the functions out which all I have done so far.

I do! It feels very comfortable and solid in my hands. I have to try post processsing a bunch of photos that I took today at an old iron works village. I have not loaded them to my PC yet. But operationally, it is great. A big upgrade to the 350D I was previously using.

I just hope something is worked out soon so I can use Lightroom with it.
