I have a Nikon D5200 digital camera which takes pictures in RAW format. I need to be able to see these pictures on my Mac, but the D5200's format is not supported by my opertating system 10.6.

So I searched for the appropriate Digital Camera RAW update, which is available and was released some time ago (version 4.04). However, this update requires Mac OS X 10.8 so I can't install it on my computer (actually I can't even download the correct version, since it has been replaced by a newer one).

Where can I find an update for 10.6 which gives compatibility with the required RAW formats?


My system is about two years old, and the camera I'm talking about was released more than 6 months ago. I cannot believe that after one and a half years after the release of the OS no support to new file formats is given.



Mac OS X (10.6.8)
