The Digital Camera RAW Compatibility Update 4.01 . Finally



It used to be that Mac owners had to wait for an OS update to get RAW support for their new cameras. This — of course — meant a long wait. Now they pop out whenever they're needed, and you don't even have to restart your Mac.

It's like we're living in the future and, with Marty McFly arriving on his hover-board in just three years from now, that's exactly how it should be.


Got one of these cameras? Then you can finally see your thumbnails in the Finder, and edit pictures in Aperture and iPhoto. If you use Adobe Lightroom, you're probably snickering to yourself right now.

  • Canon EOS M
  • Canon PowerShot G15
  • Canon PowerShot S110
  • Canon PowerShot SX50 HS
  • Nikon D600
  • Nikon 1 J2
  • Panasonic LUMIX DMC-FZ200
  • Panasonic LUMIX DMC-G5
  • Panasonic LUMIX DMC-LX7
  • Sony Alpha NEX-F3

Once installed (it should show up in the Mountain Lion App Store as a software update), then you may have to right-click on your images in Aperture and choose to “reprocess originals.”
