For Mac users - App store is now open

Recommended Posts

On your Mac, go to Software Update and download the latest patches. The App store is included in the 10.6.6 patch (am assuming in a 10.5.x patch too). Computer will restart. New icon on Dashboard and in the Apple menu for the App Store.

 

Hoping interesting features start to appear for say Aperture.

I believe, at least initially, that the App Store is only available with the 10.6.6 update for Snow Leopard - not earlier versions of the OS.

 

On first look, it looks pretty good!

It already has; just look at the new price (USD 79.99 vs USD 199 is indeed a VERY ´interesting feature´.....

)

I bought Aperture from the app store..bargain price. However, it does not recognise the RAW files on my LX5. The Leica D-Lux5 is officially supported, the LX5 is not.

 

Has anybody been able to crack this?

Hi there, i'm using Aperture 2 at the moment and have seen a "bargain" price of £45 in the UK for an upgrade to Ver 3 but it takes an upgrade to Snow Leopard to get the App Store to then get Aperture 3. I have seen some horror stories on problems with Snow Leopard. Any information on this or any experience from users? Regards Robin.

I am running Version 10.6.5 Snow Leopard without any problems. I am about to install the 10.6.6 upgrade and if I have problems I will let you know.

What 'horror stories' have you heard of? The worst that I have heard of is that some people had to re-install their printers, or that some elderly devices needed new drivers. Personally. I have installed it on multiple machines, without any problems at all.

Hi there. There are lots of items on Mac Users forums regarding problems with Snow Leopard but I just wondered what Leica users had to say about it. I suppose like all products there are good and bad reports but I may just wait and go to my nearest Apple store in Glasgow and buy and install it there, then if there's a problem at least I might get some help. I am not the most confident of computer users and if something goes wrong it's likely the Mac Book will go out the window!!!! Regards to all. Robin.

No problem with Snow Leopard here. I have lots of Mac using friends and none have mentioned any problems worth noting. It's a superb OS, IMHO.

 

Don't believe everything you read on internet forums, is my advice

      With my Leica M9 I just whip out the SD card, put it into the slot, select the picture file and upload it to the desktop. Couldn’t be simpler.
        But trying to do the same with the iPhone is problematic. I hooked up a USB cable, and the iMac didn’t recognize it. I had to hunt around and then could only open pictures in Photos. I just want the photos on the desktop. Yes, I can also use airdrop but you have to do them picture by picture, which is slow.    I seldom do this, but want to help a friend load her iPhone pictures (several thousand from a European trip!) onto her laptop (possibly a Widows machine). So what’s the best way to do it?

      I'm currently using Apple Aperture for my Leica M9 but as Apple no longer supports it, it's only a matter of time before I will have to convert (maybe to Capture One). In the meantime, should I buy an M10, will it's DNG files be readable by Aperture even if Apple no longer adds support for new cameras. Note I'm not positive Apple isn't doing this, but it would kind of be typical so I'm kind of assuming this is true.
       
      In other words, will buying an M10 mean an IMMEDIATE conversion to another program?
       
      Thanks.

      I have recently bought a used Summilux 50mm.  The serial number starts 250..., so I think it's from around 1972.
       
      It's been working fine since May on M9, M6 and CL (with adapter).  Using today on M-D and the focus and aperture rings are starting to stick when focus nears infinity.  Put simply, if I'm at around f8, then move focus towards infinity, the rings 'catch' and turning the focus starts to turn the aperture at the same pace, moving it up (from, say, f8 to f11).
       
      Anyone else had this happen.  If no easy fix then I have a 12 month warranty, but it would be a shame to lose it for a few weeks.
       
      thank you

      Hi,
      I'm looking at getting a Summitar and was wondering whether anybody can shed light on the two variants, namely the round aperture bladed version approx. pre 1950 and the later type with the hexagonal arranged aperture. Generally the latter version seems to be a little less expensive and less sought after if my observations are correct. 
      Both lenses opened at f2 there is clearly no difference in aperture shape but any smaller setting then does the hexagonal opening perhaps provide a little less appealing bokah for instance? Or perhaps there may be other discernible differences?
      Thanks in advance.
