    STILL NOTHING FOR THE FUJIFILM X-PRO 1 OR X-E1. Getting to the point where I’m forced to abandon Aperture and switch to Lightroom or Capture One.

    There’s no reason not to say if Apple is planning to support it. Its competitors already do. So Apple should either alert its users to an intention to support these cameras, or let us assume it have no intention of ever doing it. There is no rational reason in this circumstance for continued secrecy.

    Oh Apple, how I wish you would release Fuji X-Pro1 RAW support. Its way too nice of a camera to shrug it off. The x-mount is only going to get more popular and by then, I’m afraid, too many people will have left for LR. OK, off my soapbox now… I wish I didn’t enjoy using Aperture so much or I would’ve switched by now!

      For those wanting Fuji X Support don’t hold your breath. From what I understand about Aperture’s programming, Aperture doesn’t have the underlying architecture can’t support non – bayer standard cameras. I could be wrong, but I’m pretty sure. You’ll notice that none of the Foveon sensors are supported either.

      I’m guessing there’ll have to be a major change before we see it. If ever.

        Thomas Fitzgerald you’re comment makes me want to cry. I hope you are incorrect in your assumption and Aperture develops RAW support for the X-Pro1, X-E1 and other X-mount cameras.
        There is already support for the X100 so I don’t see why they wouldn’t for the rest of the X Series.

    Does anyone have the same problem? Aperture 3.4.3 keeps crashing when ejecting a Sony RX1. Every few crashes Aperture then ask for a rebuild of the database and/or a permissions repair. Does the problem come from the Aperture update or from the camera… Any ideas?

    • Thomas Fitzgerald February 19, 2013 at 11:26 am #

      I think it’s an Aperture bug. Mine keeps asking me to rebuild every now and then too for no reason.

        “… for no reason.” and not after a crash at ‘Eject’ camera?

        • Thomas Fitzgerald February 19, 2013 at 2:39 pm #

          No – every now and again when launching it

    OK, thanks.
    I found that ejecting the camera through the desktop (Mac) avoids the crash.
