Adobe Camera Raw for Photoshop (CC, CS6 and CC 2014) is an alternative way to install support for digital camera RAW formats. At times, installing the official Adobe installer isn't successful. This method, also an official Adobe product, seems to help.
The download includes a ZIP file and within there, an installer for Windows. Once the installer has completed, all of the newest camera models and lens models should be supported from directly within Photoshop.
Adobe Camera Raw for Photoshop also allows you to open RAW files from within Lightroom, exporting them to Adobe Photoshop for external editing.
Camera Raw for Photoshop is licensed as Freeware for Windows (32-bit and 64-bit) operating system / platform from plugins for photoshop without restrictions. Camera Raw for Photoshop 9.7 is available to all software users as a free download (Freeware).
Compatibility with this Photoshop plugin software may vary, but will generally run fine under Microsoft Windows 10, 8, 8.1, 7, Vista and XP on either a 32-bit or 64-bit setup. A separate x64 version may be available from Adobe.
