Charles-Axel Pauwels wrote a new app for those wanting to have GF1-E-P1/2 RAW support on Aperture. This app is free!
He just sent me a new email and may Olympus can help us: “Do you have a E-PL1 RAW file sample on which I could do some testing?
Can someone of our readers send us a RAW file of the Olympus E-PL1? Maybe you guys from Olympus? Thanks!
On youtube this is one of the first videos made with the Olympus E-PL1
Matthew sent us this email:
“Hi. Thank you for maintaining such a helpful site. I read it every day. Thanks to a post on your site I learned about the leather skins available for my E-P2 from Ebay and I thought you might like to see how mine looks now. I’m very happy with the results…
PRESS RELEASE: Introducing OLYMPUS PEN E-PL1 Camera Cases, Body Jackets, and Other Accessories (Imaging Rescource)
Last week most sold DSLR cameras in Japan (bcnranking)
Amazon DEAL: For the first time the Panasonic GH1 price breaks the $1,200 barrier!
As you have noticed the new Aperture 3 software from Apple doesn’t support the Panasonic GF1 and Olympus E-P1/2!
UPDATE: Charles-Axel Pauwels also wrote a new app: “This app tricks Aperture into thinking it handles Panasonic GH1 files. To use the Panasonic GF1 RAW Converter, just drag-n-drop your RAW files onto the app icon. It takes about a second for each RAW file you want to convert. ”
UPDATE2: “In addition to the GF1 RAW files converter, I created converters for the Olympus E-P1 and E-P2 RAW files. All three converters are free of course!
Do you have a E-PL1 RAW file sample on which I could do some testing?
Thanks for the blogpost!
Kevin Miller just sent me the good news!
“I have written a couple of apps that allow owners of E-P1, E-P2 and GF1 to import RAW into Aperture
The E-P1/2 versions work with Aperture 2 and 3, and the GF1 convertor works only with Aperture 3
They work my changing a copy of the RAW file to seem like it is coming from a camera that Aperture does support – a e-30 in the case of the PEN’s and G-1 fir the GF1
they are available for 5 euros at
you can read a review of the PEN convertor here
Thanks Kevin! (And shame on Apple!)
