Add Canon S30 RAW support to iPhoto Apps
Tiger only hintI found a hint somewhere else about editing a RAW.plist file to change the RAW camera support and decided to see if I could edit the same file to get iPhoto to recognize the RAW images from my Canon S30.

The file RAW.plist in 10.4.5 is located in /System -> Library -> Frameworks -> ApplicationServices.framwork -> Versions -> A -> Frameworks -> ImageIO.framework -> Versions -> A -> Resources. I opened the file in Text Editor, searched for Powershot, and changed S60 in the found set to S30. After restarting the computer, iPhoto now imports my camera's RAW images.

[robg adds: This previous hint discusses adding support for the Canon EOS350D's RAW images in the same manner.]

Excellent! This does, in fact, work.

The only problem is that the color and levels are all screwed up. Images are very, very dark and the color balance is way off.

Now I need to figure out how to change those array values...

Does anyone know if this technique also works for Aperture?

I hate these hints because they're never geared toward the Pentax DSLR line. Am I the only one in the world who owns a Pentax ist D? Why can't apple support these cameras? It annoys me to no end.

And while I'm at it, why is there no freakin' iSync support for the Nokia 6230 phone. Argh!

I will pay good money to whoever can solve my two gripes here. :)

What about Olympus SP-310 or 350?
Authored by: meckardt on Mar 20, '06 09:22:58PM
I've tried both String variants "SP310" as shown in Finder and System Profiler and RAW images and "SP-310" just like the two other Olympus cameras in Raw.plist. Does not work. The RAW image ASCII code has Strings like like this in TextEdit:

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA 
OLYMPUS IMAGING CORP
SP310
SX854
Resolution=6
Type=SX854
Any ideas from Olympus owners or others? Thanks in advance, Matt
