how to view OMD M5 mark II ORF files
« on: November 07, 2016, 06:17:17 PM »
Hi,
I purchased PM a many years ago.
Recently I hired one photographer to a wedding, and he came up with this mirrorless Olympus ( OMD M5 Mark II ).
I had no idea my photomechanic version would not be able to preview those ORF files.  :(
WHat should I do to make these files viewable?
The only way is buying the latest version of PM?
Thank you!
Ricardo

Version 4, I believe. Right now I'm not in front of the computer with PM istalled.
Is there somewhere I can look it up (an account with you guys or something)?
Thanks!

It is unlikely that you would have an account on our e-store if you've got PM 4.x.x.  Version 5 is the current version of PM and it's where updates and support are happening.  I am fairly certain that versions older than PM5 won't have support for the OMD M5 Mark II.

My latest posts with doubts about my copy of PM are dated from 2009, lol.
This is why I'm asking here...
The solution is buying a new and updated version of PM, correct?
Thanks

I suggest downloading PM5 and running a trial.  If it meets your needs, you should be able to purchase an upgrade (though you may need to contact sales@camerabits.com to arrange for the upgrade).  If PM5 does not support your camera (I think it does) then let us know and we'll add support for it in the next update to PM5.
