Leica MM RAW Support for Aperture

Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

I wonder if anyone else here is waiting for Aperture to support Monochrom's linear RAW files.

 

I have used Aperture since version 1 and I am well used to it. I have tried Lightroom numerous times (including version 3 and now version 4) but still prefer the non-modular system in Aperture, it's full-screen mode, etc...

 

Usually RAW support lags a couple months behind the camera release. Well, it's been 6 months since the MM was released and no support yet. Quite disappointing I must admit.

 

I understand that this support requires the collaboration between Leica and Apple. Two companies known for not disclosing much of their roadmap/plans. I know people involved in this kind of development (new software versions, features, etc) are usually under NDA, but it would be great if at least some hint that this is in the works showed up somewhere... Already emailed Apple... what would be the best channel to reach Leica?

 

Nonetheless, enjoying the camera...

I agree with your points "mydarkroom"

I would like to see the MM support as well.

There was a thread not so long ago, asking LUF member to request the MM support.

 

Keep on requesting ....

Thank you for the reply Uwe. I will look for that thread.

 

One point I forgot to mention is that even the Firmware of the Monochrom hasn't reached version 1 (Still a beta?). I wonder if companies are waiting for the final firmware to provide support (I doubt though).

 

The other point is: I wonder how likely is Leica to help other software companies to provide support to its RAW files since it already distribute LR with the camera. Or perhaps is Adobe's way to drive even more people into its software. No matter how good or better LR is considered, this should be about choice....

 

cheers
