∞ Apple Raw software update adds support for eight new cameras

Apple has released Digital Camera Raw Compatibility Update 3.8. The software is available for download from Apple’s Web site and through the Software Update system preference.

This update is to the system software Mac OS X 10.6.5 and higher (including Lion) uses to manage input from cameras that produce digital “raw” files – the digital equivalent of a film negative. The software is used by both Apple’s Aperture 3 and iPhoto ’11 applications.

The 3.8 release adds compatibility for the following cameras:

  • Konica Minolta DiMAGE A200
  • Olympus PEN E-P3
  • Panasonic LUMIX DMC-G3
  • Panasonic LUMIX DMC-GF3
  • Samsung NX11
  • Samsung NX100
  • Sony Alpha NEX-C3
  • Sony Alpha SLT-A35
