It's time for another Camera RAW Update! Six shiny new cameras have been added to the support list this time around…

  • Fujifilm X-E2
  • Fujifilm X-T1
  • Nikon D3300
  • Nikon 1 AW1
  • Panasonic LUMIX DMC-GM1
  • Pentax K-3 

Do you have any of those cameras? If so let us know how the RAW support looks!

To see a complete list of supported RAW formats under Mac OS X Mavericks, head to

Apple Aperture

Apple and therefore Aperture wins! I have the Fuji XT-1 and have had to suffer with ACR 8.4 RC in Photoshop since Adobe is dragging their feet getting an update in Lightroom to include RAW support for this camera. I have not particularly been happy with Adobe’s RAW processing of the XT-1 files. With support now in Aperture I can get back to shooting RAW and processing in Aperture were I belong.

Aperture’s rendering of the XT-1 RAW is in my opinion excellent. Colors render much closer to what I see in the camera’s LCD. No washed out faded look that I seem to get in PSCC.

Now if Apple would just give us a new version of Aperture all would be right in the world.



Can’t  update. I downloaded the file and it said I need Aperture 3.4.5 or better, the installer quits. I’m running 3.5.1 — weird I guess that’d why it’s not showing in Software Update.

It’s because I keep aperture not on Applications root, but in a folder with all my processing apps. Moved it the root directory and it updated. One of the things I don’t like about the AppStore, telling you where things should be on your disk. It want’s to put everything in Applications. Some of the stuff I download are not Applications – I would classify some as Utilities, some as games (separate directory) etc. Apple is getting weird about tightening down things. The main reason I don’t like buying from the AppStore.
