    No intent to mislead or rub anything in. I thought the supported model numbers included that model -- my error.

    Mac Pro 8 Core, iBook, and QS G4 867, Mac OS X (10.6.2), 10.5.8, 10.4.11, Aperture 2, FCS3

    I just looked it up, the file you need is called Raw.plist

    you will find it in this location :

    hd > system > library > coreservices > RawCamera.bundle

    you need to do a "show package contents" on the RawCamera.bundle, and inside this file go to this location :

    Contents > Resources

    There you will find the file Raw.plist

    Be sure to make a backup of the RawCamera.bundle before you edit the Raw.plist file inside.
    If anything goes wrong you can still go back.

    If the GH1 and GF1 are so similar, I'm sure Apple will be releasing an update very soon to support it, but if you can't wait, try to edit the file I mentioned.

    helloniklas, I have done this before, and it worked... maybe a search in google on "edit rawcamera.bundle" will give you more info..

    Or maybe Aperture 3 uses the file differently...

    From my understanding both the G1 and GH1 use lens correction data. If so, then I'm stumped as to why Apple didn't simply add the GF1 along with the rest of them.

    Thanks for the instructions.

    It worked like a charm. It's too bad Apple didn't do this on their own.

    Thanks for that… It does indeed work like a charm for both Aperture 3 and iPhoto '09 (v.8.1.1) Let's hope that Apple add support for the GF1 soon though.

    This didn't work for me. Am I the only one? I'm running Snow Leopard with the Aperture 3 Trial. When I select "RAW files only" under "RAW+JPEG Pairs" no files show up. My raw files are named like this: P1010199.RW2. When I searched for the string GF1 inside the RAW file I found "Panasonic.DMC-GF1", but that string doesn't appear anywhere in my modified RawCamera or Raw.plist files. Those have strings like: "PanasonicGF1.DMC-GF1", "PanasonicDMCGF1", and "RCID_PanasonicDMCGF1". Is that the problem? What kind of string do other people have in their RAW files?

    I tried updating /System/Library/CoreServices/RawCamera.bundle/Contents/CodeResources as recommended here: Still no luck. Has anyone else gotten this working on Snow Leopard?

    I have an alternative solution... a little app that fools Aperture into thinking the files came from a G1. Its a drag and drop app that copies your raw and makes changes to the copy.
    Totally safe and no need to go hacking around in the system folder
    Its available here
    I don't have a GF1 so I am not sure what, if anything, is lost in the conversion, but it seems to work. The app takes a copy of your original file and performs a little wild magic on it so your original file is always safe
