RAW compatibility update for OS X 10.8 adds support for a host of new cameras

Apple is currently pushing out a small, but not insignificant, RAW compatibility update for OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion that adds support for a whole host of new digital cameras in Aperture 3 and iPhoto. The update is necessary for both programs to make use of RAW image files from the newly supported digital cameras.

The full list of additions:

  • Canon EOS-1D C
  • Canon EOS Rebel SL1 / 100D / Kiss X7
  • Canon EOS Rebel T5i / 700D / Kiss X7i
  • Hasselblad Lunar
  • Nikon COOLPIX A
  • Nikon D7100
  • Nikon 1 J3
  • Nikon 1 S1
  • Sony Alpha NEX-3N

If you've got any of these cameras, head into the Mac App Store or hit the Software Update menu to download the update.

I'd use iPhoto to organize photos if it wasn't such a bag of hurt. Event management is terrible. I hate how photo stream imports. I turned that nonsense off.

I'm an iPhone 5 user and am not happy with iPhoto either and am reluctant to use photo stream as I agree with you. So what are you using for "photo management" Flickr or ???

Use aperture and create smart albums like you would in iTunes.. in the smart albums set keywords or criterias to organize... This is how I do it.. And it works great with photostream.. Here is look at how I organize my images when photostream dumps them back to my mac... digitalchemicals (dot)blogspot(dot)com/2013/02/backing-up-to-mac.html
