Support for the New Nikon D850 Is Now Available through Adobe’s DNG Converter

Lightroom Support for the New Nikon D850 CameraUPDATE Oct. 18, 2017: Lightroom Classic 7, released today for CC subscribers, supports raw files from this camera. Adobe has indicated that there also will be a perpetual 6.13 update soon that will support it.


If you’re one of the lucky people to have a Nikon D850 on the way, I’m sure you have been wondering whether Lightroom will read its raw files and what you’ll do if not. In fact Lightroom can’t read them yet, but Adobe today released an updated version of its free DNG Converter (and Camera Raw 9.12.1) with support for this camera. Until we get a Lightroom update, convert your raw files to Adobe’s DNG raw format using this program that you can download here for Mac and for PC, and then you’ll be able to import these DNG files into Lightroom.

Any time you have a camera that isn’t supported by Lightroom but is supported by Camera Raw – maybe because you have an old version of Lightroom – you can convert them to DNG and then import them.

Here’s a list of all cameras supported by Lightroom and Camera Raw.
