Apple supports raw photos from Canon's new 70D
Aperture and iPhoto now can handle raw images from Canon's new midrange SLR as well as some higher-end compact cameras from Sony, Olympus, Nikon, and Fujifilm.
Apple released an update Thursday that lets its Mac operating system handle raw files from, some new high-end compacts, and an older medium-format camera, the Pentax 645D.
Raw image formats, though proprietary, offer higher image quality and more flexibility than conventional JPEGs. Apple's support means iPhoto, Aperture, OS X, and other software can decode the raw formats from the following new cameras, according to the update:
Canon EOS 70D
Leica M Monochrom
Nikon Coolpix P330
Olympus Stylus XZ-10
Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX1R
Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II
Apple software rival Adobe Systems already released support for the Canon 70D in July, but it's only marked as "preliminary."
The full list of cameras with Apple raw support includes hundreds of models.
