    Please request Apple to update Aperture ASAP to accommodate the new Nikon D3 & D300

    Providing feedback via Aperture Feedback. To do this from Aperture MENU:

    APERTURE > PROVIDE APERTURE FEEDBACK

    or, just visit:

    http://www.apple.com/feedback/aperture.html

    Fill the form in asking for D3/D300 RAW support update. Apparently this form goes directly to Aperture developers and they do read it. So, more people fill this in, the higher the priority will be given.

    Unfortunately it's got nothing to do with the Aperture developers. Aperture simply leverages the OS level support for RAW. You need to get the OS updated to support new RAW formats. Most likely this is coming in 10.5.2, or if that is a long way off Apple may offer a downloadable patch to add additional RAW support which they have done once before (400D/XTi support).

    These delays are rather ludicrous for a supposed pro app. Are they trying to drive us over to Lightroom?

    You are right that OS Update will see Aperture RAW converter updated as iPhoto uses the same RAW converter. However, it IS Aperture developers who are developing and fine tuning the raw converter. Apple support told me to do exactly the same - login to the link posted by OP and tell developers there are a large demand for update!

    Yes... you would think they would have given it a bit of a priority. Let's just hope when it does come out, it will be a 'quality' raw converter.

    They're not going to update an entire OS to give you RAW support for 2 cameras, considering how few people (relatively speaking) have one of these 2 cameras in their hand. They're just waiting to bundle this RAW support with other things, which is understandable.

    Last time it took about a month or so for them to update RAW conversion, and yes, that update included several cameras, not just Nikon, and then some non-photographic related software updates. I AM getting impatient, though, I wish they'd hurry!

    I've sent in a few as well and mentioned it in other requests.

    I wonder if they really do read those.

    One thing that is kind of sad to see is the camera options are outdated. Even the D80 is missing from the drop down list. In the "other" applications, Photoshop is listed as "Photoshop/CS2".

    Seems to me the page has been left alone for quite some time now. It's a bit dusty.
