Not sure how I missed this one last week, but here you go… the latest Digital Camera RAW update from Apple, weighing in a 4.07, provides support for three additional cameras.

  • Panasonic LUMIX DMC-G6 
  • Panasonic LUMIX DMC-GF6 
  • Sony Alpha SLT-A58

As always, you can grab it from Software Update under the Apple menu, or download it directly from

Apple Aperture

I’m new to this, but its great fun. My problem: The sorting mechanism for iphoto is so absurd it’s not worth mentioning. So I bought PhotoManagerPro since my main goal is to assemble a specific order of both imported photos and clip arts from Google. OK, first find all the photos and put them in a file. Then sort however. Now PhotoManager Pro could very well come with the worst instructions of all time, but I managed through trial and error to rearrange all my photos in the order I wanted. Now what? There is a sort choice called “My order,” and I assume that has something to do with the order that I just manually defined, but when I press this the order seems random, meaning I just wasted a lot of time. So how does one memorize the manually arranged order of the photos? Also, after leaving the file, when you come baxk to it everything is a mess. There is apparently no way to Save. And finally, if you crop and pan in a series of files,mthis information is also lost.

I’m having a terrible time with the G6 RAW conversion. Aperture’s really going overboard on the chroma noise reduction even at lower ISOs, washing out the fine detail… Here’s a post I made on the topic on the dpreview m43 forum:

Relative to the OCC JPEG and SilkyPix, it’s not very good… (I could have turned up the chroma noise reduction in the silkypix file, I just didn’t bother - the results are the same)

Not a lot of people have the G6 yet, so this isn’t a problem that people are screaming about unfortunately.
