Today is a happy day for Aperture users with the following cameras: Panasonic DMC-LX1, Panasonic DMC-LX2, Leica M8, Leica D-LUX 2, Leica D-LUX 3, Fuji S5 Pro, Nikon D40x, and Canon EOS 1D Mk III.
The lastest Mac OS X 10.4.10 update now adds camera RAW support for these cameras. Now that Tiger can decode these RAW files, Aperture and iPhoto can get to work on processing them.
I was happy to finally be able to shoot RAW with my Fuji S5 camera and use Aperture to process the RAW files; though of all the cameras on the market, the Fuji S5 Sensor captures JPEGS with a very wide dynamic range.
This is what Fuji S5 RAW images looked like in Aperture before the update
After the update, I can get to work.
I know many Leica M8 users were discouraged from using Aperture because it didn’t support their camera in RAW format. Welcome.
There are other minor fixes, including one that fixes a bug in which Adobe DNG format files appeared “tinted or distorted”.
You can install the latest update through Software Update under the Apple menu, or as a standalone updater here.
