The 10.5.4 update was supposed to include support for the Canon XSi Raw format. That support doesn't appear to apply to image capture. I shoot Raw + Large/Fine jpeg and image capture brings all the images over to the Mac with no error messages when I connect the camera. The jpeg images are OK, but the raw images are all corrupted - iPhoto says the files are bad and can't open them - and the Canon Digital Photo Professional application shows a distorted image and can't convert the files to jpeg. I had to install the Canon utility program to transfer the raw images successfully. Once the images are on the Mac, then iPhoto can open the raw files. So, what exactly does "support for the Canon XSi raw" mean? Does it just apply to iPhoto and Aperture? Seems strange not to also support Image Capture. Incidentally, the Canon web site says Image Capture doesn't work and says to use the Canon software.
