As a proud owner of an Olympus E-P1 and a longtime user of Aperture, it was frustrating not to be able to import .ORF files from the E-P1/2 into Aperture.
I read somewhere on the internet that by opening the ORF file in a text editor you could change just a few characters and Aperture would think the files came from an Olympus E-30 and therefore be able to read them. I tried this.. and it worked.
This got me thinking, and even though I am not a programmer, I realised that it should be possible to write an Applescript application that would do this for me.
E-P1 to Aperture RAW and E-P2 to Aperture RAW are the results of my efforts.
It isn't the greatest bit of programming ever, and it can be a little temperamental at times, but it does do the job.
It runs only on Snow Leopard... I have no idea why... as I said I am not a programmer. It doesn't touch your original files, but rather copies them and performs its wild magic on the copy.
It runs only on English versions of Snow Leopard. If there is enough interest I could attempt a localisation to French and maybe German. Leave a comment if this is of interest
As an exercise in exploring the world of e-commerce and giving fellow Aperture/E-P1/E-P2 a little something that might help them spend less time at the computer and more time taking photos I am offering this little utility for the grand sum of 5 euros.
