Join Mikkel Aaland for an in-depth discussion in this video Camera Raw version check, part of Getting Started with Adobe Camera Raw 5.
Before you do anything in Camera Raw, you want to make sure you're using the most recent version. Every few months or so, Camera Raw is updated to support new digital cameras. Occasionally, minor behind the scenes improvements are also made. It's therefore best to periodically download the latest version. It's free from the Adobe website. How do you know which version you're working with? In the upper middle section of the interface, you'll see here Camera Raw, in my case 5.3. That's the version number.
You can also go under Photoshop, about Camera Raw, and it'll tell you the version number there. If you want, I'm going to go into the Photoshop workspace and under Help, Updates, Photoshop will automatically check and see if you need the latest plugin. That of course depends if you're online or not.
