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. Sent from the iMore App
  • Allyson,
    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
