Apple released an update yesterday to let Mac software handle raw photos from eight new cameras, most of them high-end compact models.
The Digital Camera Raw Compatibility Update 4.02 lets Aperture 3, iPhoto 11, and other software handle raw photos from the following cameras:
Nikon Coolpix P7700
Olympus Pen E-PL5
Olympus Pen E-PM2
Olympus Stylus XZ-2
Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH3
Sony Alpha NEX-5R
Sony Alpha NEX-6
Sony Alpha SLT-A99
Raw photos offer more flexibility and higher image quality than conventional JPEGs, but photographers must use software to process the photos, and companies must write software to decode new cameras’ proprietary formats.
