Support for Canon CR3 Format?

Recommended Posts

It seems that support for the Canon CR3 format is a long time coming as the first camera with native CR3 images was the EOS M50 and was released on 26 February ... As it is now September is there any likelihood we will see native RAW support for CR3 images soon?

This is the new Canon format and will be in all new cameras.

Yes, I'm also waiting. It's really tedious and slow to develop the raw philes in Canon's Digital Photo Professional first. And I find that, if I convert it with the free Adobe DNG converter, the dng files look very washed out in Affinity Photo. Please guys.... the M50 is already the best selling camera in Japan, and all Canon's new cameras will use cr3.

It seems as though most companies have been slow in producing support for Canon's CR3 as even now Phase One has just released preliminary support in the latest version of capture One Pro.

Only  Adobe, which is not an option for me, has mature support because they have had RAW conversion capabilities since April this year. Obviously that is good for people who subscribe to Adobe products, it isn't an option for me, but with the release of the EOS R it should speed the industry up to release CR3 support.

Maybe the industry didn't think CR3 was the updated CR2?

I have just bought an M50 and am looking at a trial version of Affinity as a change from PSE11. I am very impressed, but the lack of CR3 support in a big turn-off. Please, Serif, give us a date for CR3 support and I will buy it immediately.

No news on this front? It is really depressing to have bought a software and a new camera and can not work smoothly and quickly as before.
I hope that the developers can give us news on the development of support for CR3 soon.

Hi Dlight,
Welcome to Affinity Forums :)
We are continuously adding support for more cameras/models on each release. It's just a question of time until .CR3 support gets implemented, quite possibly in the next update (1.7). Bear with us while we work on it.

So I hope that the 77D gets support as well (it still uses cr2 files, but they don't really work correctly in terms of colour)
