default application for camera

in Mac Software edited January 2014
When I plug my camera into the USB port or plug my CF card into my Firewire reader, iPhoto pops up by default to import the images. Unfortunately, iPhoto 5 does not support Camera RAW for the Canon Digital Rebel XT (350D), so I would like to use another app by default.

Is there a way to change which application automatically launches like that when I pop in this particular card?

    Open Image Capture and go to the Preferences; you can change it in there.

    Thanks... got a lot of tornado warnings in my area of Alabama right now due to the remnants of Hurricane Rita, so my Mac is off. I will check this a little later this evening.

    I am using my Windows laptop to surf the forums for a little while.

    Once I was able to test it out after the storms, all works as mentioned. Thanks for the response.
