Apple on Thursday released a small software update for users of its photo applications that adds RAW support for nearly a dozen new digital cameras.



The 2.2MB Digital Camera RAW Compatibility Update 2.0 extends RAW file compatibility for Aperture 2 and iPhoto ’08 for the following cameras:



Hasselblad CFV-16

Hasselblad H3D-31

Hasselblad H3D-31II

Leaf Aptus 54S

Leaf Aptus 65S

Nikon D60

Olympus E-3

Pentax *ist DL2

Pentax *ist DS2

Pentax K100D Super

Sony DSLR-A200

Sony DSLR-A350



The update also includes a lone security fix that was also included as part of a much larger security update released on Tuesday, which affects DNG image files.



"A stack based buffer overflow exists in the handling of Adobe Digital Negative (DNG) image files. By enticing a user to open a maliciously crafted image file, an attacker may cause an unexpected application termination or arbitrary code execution," Apple wrote. "This update addresses the issue through improved validation of DNG image files."



The security update is applicable for users of Aperture 2 or iPhoto 7.1.2 with iLife Support 8.2.

    One thing that would be nice is if DNG was supported natively by cameras. This way you wouldn't need to be constantly updating your sensor specification database on you computer.

    That would be nice. You also wouldn't have to worry as much whether your archives will be readable a decade or two from now. There are always other risks, but it's a nice step to reduce it.
