At least this is properly labelled on MacUpdate, unlike Adobe Camera Raw 8.4, which also gets you the DNG Converter.

Works very well. Was able to use this to convert Nokia Lumia 1020's .DNG raw files to a format that the current version of Mac OS X and iPhoto can actually use. If your camera is on the list of supported devices, this will probably work for you.

Anyone who is familiar with Photoshop's Batch dialog or other mass-convert utilities will probably get along just fine with the interface. It's not as simple as something developed by Apple, but it gets the job done.

My setup:
Mac OS X 10.9.1
iPhoto 9.5.1
Digital Camera RAW Compatibility Update 5.03
Nokia Lumia 1020 running Nokia Black / GDR3
In preferences, set Compatibility to "Camera Raw 4.6 and later" (this was the newest version to work in OSX/iPhoto)

Also, for those who care:
Yes, as Bossa-Nova mentioned, it apparently doesn't save the image preview in a way that OS X can read it with these settings, however it does appear to save a thumbnail, which displays in the Finder and in Spotlight. Spotlight will complain that it can't preview the image but it displays the thumbnail anyway. For my purposes, the thumbnail is good enough, but your mileage may vary.

I did not encounter the bug that Me2 mentioned with regards to a bad creation date in EXIF data. The creation date does change in the Finder (as it should, you're creating a new file when you convert a file) but the EXIF data, including date and time of capture, and camera make & model (and probably other things like ISO though I didn't check) remains unchanged and accurate.

When I convert to DNG using the lossy compression, the new created DNGs have no more preview in the Finder and no way to make them have a preview!

The lack of previews from DNG's is an Apple bug (and they know about it). How long it takes for a fix is anyone's guess.

I downloaded this version 6.6. It states it's also for PPC but it will nt launch, say's "You cannot open the application “Adobe DNG Converter.app” because it is not supported on this architecture."
Bummer.

I like to respond to things in about 16 months. It's something that's called spineless.

Yeah because 16 months ago PowerPC Macs were only a deprecated platform for five years instead of nearly seven. Sick burn, bro.

Ok. Been using for years. However, now learning more and more and more. Changed a batch of NEF to DNG and looks like 'Creation Date' changes. For those who are way more trained, is this true. I want something that keeps the 'Creation Date' on the EXIF data or the "Get Info" data card. Any advice? Thank you.

Why doesn't Adobe's CS3 "Adobe Updater" application (in the Utilities folder) see this as an update that should be automatically downloaded and installed? The preferences for Adobe Updater are set to include every possible component of the CS3 family. I have version 4.2 of the Plug-in; the Adobe Updater fails to locate and recommend this 4.3.1 update.

3.7 is supposed to support the Pentax K10D. I tried both the plug and the converter and its corrupting the data passed about 65% of the file. Tried several files, same results. All in PEF format. I already switched to DNG (which works fine with or without this update), but I have some PEF's I took right when I got my camera and I was hoping to update them to DNG.

If you visit the ACR/DNG web page at http://www.adobe.com/products/photoshop/cameraraw.html you will find this notice:

Note: Adobe Camera Raw 3.6 development has been accelerated to accommodate recently announced cameras such as the Nikon D80 and the Canon EOS 400D / Digital Rebel Xti. The update will be provided this fall.

...and it seems to have been pulled. 3.1 is the latest version I can find in that directory. Wonder what happened.

What good is Adobe's Update utility if it doesn't see things like this?
