Is anyone else frustrated that they just purchased a 5D Mark III and Apple is always behind in providing RAW compatibility update. I took a ton of test pictures and can't even view them in Aperture.

Just use iPhoto, LR or Adobe PS.

Take Care,

Two ways of looking at it :

1) Apple take their time to ensure the raw conversation is as accurate as possible, while others rush any junk out just to say they have the latest cameras.

2) Apple are lazy and can't be bothered, were other put hugh efforts into keeping up to date.


Pay your money and take your choice.

Are you sure the latter two actually have official support for the 5D MkIII?

CR2 is the file type, but each camera has a unique profile tailored to the specific sensor in the camera. That's true for all raw file, Canon, Nikon, Sony, etc.

So though the file type is common (CR2), the data contained within the file is not.


Not sure why, but call me JJ.

Okay, did not know that. Thank you.

iPhoto gets 5D3 RAW support the same exact moment Aperture does. It's the same engine.

Ironically, you can use Adobe's DNG Converter 6.7 beta to generate DNG files, then use them in Aperture, just like you would need to do for LR3.

Apple was pretty immediate in getting D800 RAW support, so it's not just Apple not wanting to be bothered adding new cameras, as they wouldn't have been so fast on the Nikon support. It probably has to do with their relationship with Canon.

My guess is that either someone at Nikon got better traction at Apple, or someone at Apple got better traction at Nikon. And given that both Apple and Adobe got D800 support out fast, my guess is that Canon's the one dropping the ball.

Not that it really matters why. It simply is and it does rather suck. :(

All apple products depend on the OS to support RAW compatibility, so iPhoto and Aperture will not support it until they release a patch to OS X. Adobe products' RAW support are software based and can be patched individually.

I will try on CS5 since I read somewhere that it should support it in the latest patch.

Adobe doesn't have official support yet, either.

Apple is not necessarily slow to update OSX. It takes time even for Adobe to update its products.

Not entirely correct. In Lion, Camera Raw is a separate update and can be updated independant of the OS.
