Canon CR3 RAW File Support

Share
December 19, 2019

We are pleased to announce that ACDSee is now able to support Canon CR3 RAW files. This is something that we have been working on for some time and are excited that we are finally able to announce! Below we will discuss what Canon CR3 RAW files are, as well as what cameras we will be supporting.  

What is a Canon CR3 RAW file & does my Canon camera support CR3 RAW files? 

Canon CR3 files are RAW file extensions. With this format, your computer will read these extensions to allow you to edit them. Since CR3 is a new file format, few editing software programs have had access to them.  

Wondering if your Canon camera uses CR3 files? If your Canon camera has a Digic 8 Processor, it will usually use a CR3 file format. Want to know what Canon cameras ACDSee is supporting? We’ve listed them below! 

Canon CR3 RAW Files Supported:  

  • EOS M50 (EOS Kiss M) 
  • EOS 90D 
  • EOS 250D_Rebel SL3_ Kiss X10 
  • EOS M6 Mark II 
  • EOS R 
  • EOS RP 
  • Powershot G5 X Mark II 
  • Powershot G7 X Mark III 
  • Powershot SX70 HS 
  • Canon EOS M200 

Don’t see your camera listed here? You can check our full list of RAW files supported here. We are always adding support for new file formats, so if you don’t see your camera, you can submit a request!

    Today I updated to 2021 ACDSee ultimate as I am now using a Canon R6 with CR3 raw files, I can read the Thumbnails but when I open the file just get a grey screen.
    Been using various ACDSee software for over 10 years.
    Thinking of removing all software and reinstalling just 2021 version tomorrow but any ideas are app

      Roger, I was in exactly the same situation as you. Then I discovered that my camera is set to C-RAW (which is compressed RAW file). ACDSee does not support Compressed RAW files, so I set my camera to plain RAW

        I was on RAW not C-RAW, the problem was ACDSee needed 1) an update and 2) CR3 selected on the list of RAW files, I had heard some cameras were sent out with C-RAW selected so didn’t get caught there, now my problem is ACDSee talking to Topaz but that’s another story.

    I’m using ACDSee 2018. Do you have plans to support Canon R5 and CR3 files?
