    viewing RAW files
    I don't know if many people are familiar with the RAW format on cameras, but it's much different that JPEG. I was wondering if OSX will be able to show a preview with the thumbnail, or if i would need to bring it up in another program such as Aperture. I know on my PC i have now (i'll be upgrading to a Mac soon) it doesn't support the RAw format, i have to pull it up in another program, which is why i'm wondering.

    I know for canon raw there is no need for third party software, my raw files (.CR2) open up in Preview.

    same here, preview show thumbnails and opens my RAW files. They came from my (old) Canon EOS 300D.

    Just to add that the 10.4.9 Mac OS X update brought built-in support for these RAW file formats to Tiger, iPhoto and Aperture.
