Canon USA has today posted the first version of their standalone RAW conversion software the 'File Viewer Utility' for Mac OS X (10.1 and 10.2). File Viewer Utility has been available for some time for the Windows platform but has only just been made available for Mac OS X users. "The File Viewer Utility v1.1.1 for Mac OS X allows you to process RAW images into 16-bit TIFF files, 8-bit TIFF files or JPEGs. In addition, the File Viewer Utility can be used for a broad range of RAW file adjustments, including image processing parameters (digital exposure compensation, white balance and color matrix settings, custom tone curves, subject pattern sharpness and edge enhancement), as well as detailed IPTC captioning and even the application of up to 26 different Personal Functions to the EOS-1D and EOS-1Ds. EOS D30 and EOS D60 are also supported."
