I may be speaking to a small audience on this one, but I cannot contain my momentary excitement, er, relief. For those GM1 shooters who’ve been using Lightroom or ACR, DXO or Silkypix, this news will be of little consequence. For those of us who use Apple’s Aperture, today is a good day. FINALLY (seriously Apple, this camera was announced last Fall and has been in shooters hands for almost 5 months!) Apple has decided to properly support the .RW2 RAW files from the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GM1.
Along with the GM1, below are the cameras that are now supported in Apple’s most recent Digital Camera RAW Update 5.04:
- Fujifilm X-E2
- Fujifilm X-T1
- Nikon D3300
- Nikon 1 AW1
- Panasonic LUMIX DMC-GM1
- Pentax K-3
If you’re a shooter with any of the above cameras, and use Aperture as your Digital Asset Management software, you can download the new version of Digital Camera RAW v5.04 – HERE or just go to your Software Update and it should be sitting there ready to go.
I will be testing the RAW files from the GM1 shortly and will have an article posted in due time. In the mean time, if you’d like to receive that when it is posted, feel free to enter your email at the top right of the page to subscribe or find me on Facebook or Twitter.
