Quick Tip: Olympus PEN Video and Adobe Lightroom

If you use Adobe Lightroom to manage your photos, you’ll want to be sure to download any video you shoot with the new Olympus PEN E-P3, E-PL3 and E-PM1 cameras manually. While Adobe Lightroom will download and manage video from earlier PEN cameras and the Olympus E-5, it doesn’t recognize the AVCHD video format used in this newest breed of PEN cameras.

For my workflow, I like to copy the entire folder labeled “Private” onto my hard drive before importing my photos into Lightroom. This way, I’m certain to have downloaded my video files before I erase the card, preparing it for my next shoot.

On a related note, today Adobe released the Lightroom 3.5 update and Adobe Camera Raw update for Photoshop to provide Raw support for the ORF files for the Olympus E-P3, E-PL3 and E-PM1. You can download both updates here.
