Aperture 2 and Olympus E-3 Raw
« on: February 17, 2008, 06:36:37 AM »

 
Could not wait to get the new upgrade and by nature figured I had better try the free demo first.  So glad I did because RAW files from my Olympus E-3 seem to not be supported.

Hey Apple... What the F&[email protected]!!!!!!!

Is Olympus not main stream enough to support?  or please tell me I am missing something here.

List of supported cameras does not include E3.

Convert to DNG using Adobe's standalone converter? Ap2 will read the DNG.

Aperture 2.0 isn't the only photo software that doesn't support the Olympus E3.  DxO Optics Pro doesn't support ANY Olympus DSLR's!.  Now what's up with THAT?

I wonder what make Olympus RAW files so hard to support?

As John says, works fine with DNG.  You can always keep a copy of the ORF if you think that Apple (one day) will do a better job than Adobe at decoding E-3 RAW, which is perhaps just possible, or you ever think you might want to use Olympus Studio or Master.

It is a pain at the OS level, since Lightroom importer can't show thumbnails, and OS-dependent apps like iView can't display anything, but.... whatever.

We Olympus users were born to suffer
