Are RAW image files compatible with Apple Macintosh computers?

Applicable Products and Categories of This Article

Computers running the Apple Mac OS X (v10.4.11 or higher) operating system installed with the current version of iPhoto software support RAW image files. The Aperture 2 software for Macintosh computers also supports RAW image files.

NOTE: If you are unable to view the RAW files, the iPhoto and Aperture 2 software may need to be updated to add native support for newer RAW image profiles. Visit the Apple Web site at http://www.apple.com for complete information about either of these applications.

The Sony Image Data Converter software supplied with the camera also is compatible for viewing and editing RAW image files on Macintosh computers.
