Hi - What is the advantage of converting RAW files to DNG as they are being sucked into LR, instead of leaving them as .cr2 files?

Thanks - Dave


  • DNG is Adobe's digital negative. The only advantage would be if for some time in the future the current CR2 files are not supported.

    I don't use DNG at all as a format.  I feel like it is only Adobe and Scott Kelby that pushes DNG. 

    So, in my opinion, there are no advantages to using DNG over working with the RAW file. 
  • Thanks, Neil and Bob.
