Mac OS X 10.4.10 Update

Once again, we have some exciting news on the RAW camera support topic. Apple has released the latest update to its Mac OS X 10.4 operating system. This update contains a number of exciting additions in the area of RAW support. The complete list can be viewed here.

First off, the expected RAW camera support was for the Nikon D40x and Canon EOS 1D Mark III. Also on the more likely list is the Fuji S5 Pro. However the very exciting news is support for the Leica M8, D-LUX 2, and D-LUX 3. This adds to the pre-existing support for the Leica Digilux 2 and Digilux 3 models. As expected the similar Panasonic models are also now supported. These include the Panasonic DMC-LX1 and DMC-LX2. Those fortunate Leica M8 owners can now use all the great features of Aperture with their cameras. To top this all off, a DNG issue was resolved which could potentially cause DNG images to appear tinted or look distorted.
