Apple updates digital camera raw support

Apple has updated the digital camera raw support for iPhoto and Aperture, allowing import and management of raw files from several new Canon, Olympus, Panasonic, and Pentax models.

For photographers who use Canon, Olympus, Panasonic, and Pentax cameras that have to date not been fully supported in Apple's iPhoto and Aperture programs, you may be in luck. Apple has issued a digital camera raw compatibility update that adds raw support for the following camera models:

  1. Canon EOS Rebel T3 / 1100D / Kiss X50
  2. Canon EOS Rebel T3i / 600D / Kiss X5
  3. Olympus E-5
  4. Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ100
  5. Pentax K-r
  6. Pentax K-5

In addition to the raw additions, the update fixes some processing compatibility issues with the Nikon D7000, Coolpix P7000, and Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF1 and GH2 cameras.

The update should be available through Software Update, but is also available as a 6.45MB standalone download through the digital camera raw compatibility update page. The update requires OS X 10.5.8 or 10.6.5 or later.
