Thanks. All four file types are RAWs (just like different levels of JPEG compression are still JPEG)... I just wanted to confirm that all four flavors of RAW file are readable by OS X / iPhoto (i.e., that adding in-the-camera lossless compression to the RAW file or changing from a 12bit raw file to a 14bit raw file would not render the file incompatible...)
I like to know if you have succeeded in transferring any RAW files from your 300s to IPhoto. I ask as I have just purchased a Canon 7d, with jpeg files being imported successfully but not the RAW files. As neither of our cameras are currently shown in the list of supported cameras, I wonder if it because of this I can't import?
The RAW files from my 20d import without a hitch.
Thanks for your help

This is exactly why.
The RAW from each model of camera has to be supported. The output from the 20D is different from the 7D and you'll need to wait for an update to support the newer model.
I looked into it a bit further, and apparently Apple does not support ANY TYPE of RAW file from the D300s! This is the camera that Nikon (who is not exactly a minor player in the digital camera market) describes as their "flagship" DSLR!
(Even more frustratingly, the D300s has the same sensor and image processor as the currently-supported D300, so the RAW file formats should be very similar and Apple shouldn't have to do too much work to add D300s support!)
On the other hand, Photoshop already supports it:
EDIT: yes I know I should "submit feedback"... already done...
