How can I import my RAW-Files shot on Sony's new Alpha SLT A99 to Aperture ?

    Your new camera is not yet on the list of supported cameras: See here:

    Apple - Aperture - Technical Specifications - RAW Support

     

    • You could import your image files as raw+jpeg pairs for the time being, with the master file set to the jpeg. When later the raw will be supported, switch to the raw file as master.
    • Or use the raw converter that comes with your camera to develope the raw and import the image files to APerture as tiff files.
    • Or check, if Adobe's DNG converter already supports your camera. Then you could import dng-files instead to work with the raw.

    I think the question need to be ask is how much longer we have to wait for the update to include a99 raw files. I shoot strictly in raw mode and Sony raw converters are not as good as aperture. I've put off buying the a99 because of this fact. I finally pulled the trigger and bought it today and its on its way to me. I have a few big corporate events coming up next month and I needed the camera. Can anyone tell when the update to include the a99 raw files will be available? I would hate to go to Lightroom but if I do I'll be gone there permanently.

    Sorry, only Apple can tell you that. Even if someone knew, s/he would not be allowed to post the information here.

     

    To get an idea, how long you may have to wait, have a look at the support page:  http://support.apple.com/downloads/#Digital%20Camera%20RAW%20Compatibility%20Upd ate

    and check the dates between raw support releases.

    Looks like it is included in the new Camera RAW support, version 4.02, released today.
