Few Mac owners realize just how conveniently their bundled iPhoto program handles RAW files. Providing you have a supported camera, RAW files are developed automatically when the file is imported into iPhoto - and are redeveloped when adjusted with the iPhoto editing tools - so that the current JPEG or TIFF does not deteriorate through rounds of adjustment. The convenience of iPhoto's in-line RAW conversion has turned me into a RAW-only photographer - which makes all of the fuss and bother about comparing cameras' in-camera JPEGS on this site and others - a waste of time.

Yet, no RAW for iPhone. In their defense, it probably really looks terrible and they don't want to reveal to the world that just how heavy handed the noise reduction needs to be to have a usable image.

Thanks to DPREVIEW we get to know about any interesting releases and upgrades. It is a fact that you cannot progress as a photographer if you do not have the necessary skills and abilities; on the other hand, you need to possess the right tools.

In the Netherlands no automatic update through the app store to 3.5 and RAW compatibility. I need to hassle around with change of languages ors.
Come on: that's why I bought an iMac for.

Sorry, I just started Aperture and it now changed to 3.5 and RAW. On the background using Maverick.
Didn't use Aperture until 2 days ago. Good work Apple.

This update also fixed a nasty bug with mavericks, finder and D 800 files. I can now browse my folders again and view my D800 files

Apple besides adding cameras to the RAW database does occasionally update the older files as well. I was looking at some of the images I first shot in low light when I got my A77 two years a ago. Aperture offered to update the RAW conversion. I did on one image and not on another similar shot and the difference in quality was small but present. The biggest difference was that with the new profile, or perhaps just changes to Aperture overall, I was able to get a much less noise image now then I could when I first took the image. Yes, you trade some resolution for less noise but at least now I could do that.

Haha at lease when I upgrade new camera a few year later, I do not need to pay for new RAW converter, when I have the aperture.

Why? Apple raw works throughout the whole OS, which is MUCH more convenient than only being able to open it specialised app.

These digital camera updates don't come without requirements. It says you have to have Aperture 3/iPhoto 11, and OS X 10.8,5 or later, otherwise you'll need to upgrade something or other. You can't hang on to a version of Aperture forever...if your Aperture is too old, you will have to pay for a new update to use these camera updates.
