I just bought the new PowerShot G1X. Aperture cannot read the raw files. Is there a fix for this? I am using Aperture 3.2.2 with a MacBook Pro.

Powerbook G4, Mac OS X (10.5)

    Here is a list of currently supported camaras.  Apple regularly adds newly-released cameras to this list.  When it will happen is never announced ahead of time.


    In the meantime, you should shoot RAW+JPEG and save the RAWs for when Aperture will be updated (assuming that your camera will be supported), and when needed use Canon's software to convert the RAW and create an image-format file.

    Thank you Kirby. Do you think if I save the unreadable RAW files in Aperture, when the support for the G1X comes out, they will automatically be readable, or will I need to save them in a pictures folder and import them when the support comes out?

    I don't know -- sorry.  I don't think it matters -- once your camera is supported, you can easily force a re-processing of the Masters.  If you can import them as RAW+JPEG pairs, I would.  Set the JPG as Master until Aperture can convert the RAWs.


    I don't use RAW+JPEG.  Can someone who does offer some suggestions  .



    And _always_ back up your files.  In this case, if you have to, you'll be able to re-import them.

    As Kirby said import as RAW + JPG make the JPG masters. Once the camera is supported you will be able to process them and then you can make them the masters if you wish
