Aperture 3

Apple has issued an update to Digital Camera RAW to version 5.03, which adds RAW image support for the Canon EOS M2 in Aperture 3 and iPhoto ’11. The update also resolves an issue that prevented lens correction from working properly with Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 images and address a color cast issue on some Olympus OM-D E-M1 images.

The update is available through the Mac App Store’s “Updates” tab.

The XQ1 is a compact camera that features Fuji’s unique 12MP X-Trans II CMOS sensor, albeit at a much smaller 2/3″ sensor format.
