    I just upgraded from my Canon 20D to the 7D and I ran into my first snag. I have the camera settings to RAW like I always shoot, but when I transfer my pictures to Aperture the thumbnails load on the bottom, but in the main browser and full view the picture just appears as a maroon box with "Unsupported Image Format" in the center. Has anybody else had this issue? It's probably just a setting error on my end, but I can't figure it out to save my life.

    Have you fully updated aperture? RAW formats are often different from camera to camera, even within the same company so its likley that you need to upgrade aperture to get the latest support for this newest camera.

    Good thinking! I'll try that out once I get home from work. Thanks!

    That didn't work. I was already up to date. Any other suggestions?

    hmm have a look at the aperture website - might be that they simply havn't caught up with the 7D yet or there is some special download you need to get that is not in a general update

    I did that too. Nothing. This is frustrating. I've got a new camera that I can't even use all the way. :grumpy:

    Is that something that I would get off Apple's website?

    Aperture doesn't support many RAW file formats. Apple should get on the ball and offer upgrades when new cameras come out, but they haven't done that for years. As of 10 months ago, Aperture couldn't take the RAW file format from Nikon's D3 and D700 camera bodies. I don't know if they have patched that or not. Best advice, and you're not going to like this, buy PhotoShop. Adobe does a great job of staying up to date with new RAW formats and will take your RAW image file.

    Neither does Adobe CameraRAW. Congratulations, you're an early adopter, now calmly sit down and let people actually go through the monumentous task of reverse engineering the retarded proprietary RAW formats.
