I've just gotten an EOS 6D and the photographs I have taken will not upload into Iphoto 9.  Is there a software update available.  I don't want to upgrade to Aperture or Iphoto 11 ?  The only download I can find supports both Iphoto 11 and Aperture 3 ?

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7)

    To use the EOS 6D raw images with iPhoto you will have to upgrade, sorry, see the Raw Support List:

    OS X Lion: Supported digital camera RAW formats


    Your camera is supported by Digital Camera RAW Compatibility Update 4.03*; the footnote states clearly: * Aperture version 3.4 or later, or iPhoto version 9.4 or later, is required to install this update.


    Your best bet to import the raw images, if you do not want to update, would be to use the software that came with your camera to develop the raw and then to import the converted photos into iPhoto. Usually the camera provided raw conversion is the best, for the manufacturer has the means to provide camera specific functionality.
