Apple updates camera RAW – adds support for the Canon Rebel T3i/600D and T3 – fixes Panasonic GH2 support – Not huge news, but a bit surprising because normally, the software vendors like Apple don't have the OS fixes until AFTER the cameras are on the street – causing frustration for folks who have the camera yet can't process the RAW images until the computer operating system is updated. Glad to see this – maybe Canon is getting the RAW info out to the vendors more quickly these days?
This update adds RAW image compatibility for the following cameras to Aperture 3 and iPhoto '11:
- Canon EOS Rebel T3 / 1100D / Kiss X50
- Canon EOS Rebel T3i / 600D / Kiss X5
- Olympus E-5
- Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ100
- Pentax K-r
- Pentax K-5
It also addresses processing issues for the following cameras:

We can only hope that things are getting better coming out of Canon!
