This may be a dmb question, but what RAW formats are supported by Lightroom? Is it the same as Adobe's Camera RAW support list? What is Camera RAW anyway? Does it plug into Lightroom?

You're right and that's what Apple does. With Apple the raw conversion s done by a part of Mac OSX called "Core Image". All OSX applications share this. So when Apple updates Core Image iPhoto and preview get to use the new conversons and if you have Aperture it can use them too.Drizzt said:So instead of releasing a new version of each of their applications every time they want to update RAW formats, they release one plug in that works with all their applications?
That's what Apple should do with Aperture.
Then Canon must use a little bit more compression than Nikon. I completely uncomression raw file would have 12 bits for every photo senitive site on the CCD. (I'd say per pixel, but raw files don't contain pixels.) Uncompressed at 12MP camera would have 18MB of data and 16MP camera would have 24MB or data. I think Nikon adds a JPG thumbnail to each raw file and some other data too. Canon must compress the datajared_kipe said:Seriously? A RAW file from the 16mpx Canon 1Ds II is less than 15mb.
