Do you have a Leica M Monochrom (Typ 246) camera? So don't use the Photos app, at least for now!

O Photos (Photos) arrived with OS X Yosemite 10.10.3 and ‚Äúreplaced‚ÄĚ both iPhoto and Aperture. But if you are a happy camera owner Leica Monochrom (Typ 246), better to stay away from the app.

As the reported, the DNG files generated by the camera are currently incompatible with Apple's Photos. So, nothing much. The problem is that when trying to import these images into Photos, the app crashes and the user may lose 100% of his photo library in this game. That's right what you read: a "simple" incompatibility has the potential to disappear with all your photos all of a sudden!

The camera itself is quite new in the market and the first buyers will receive this beauty that costs more than US $ 7 thousand in some days. But it is important to make it very clear to these people, so that they stay away from Fotos. Apple and Leica are working together to resolve this incompatibility as soon as possible in their statement, Leica itself said that everything will be resolved in the next update of the Photos app, but the period for this to happen has not been stipulated.

The solution will use the latest version of Adobe Photoshop Lightroom, which is already fully compatible with this type of file. It is worth noting, however, that the JPEG files generated by this camera are, yes, compatible with Apple applications, the problem happens only with the DNG format.

Regardless of the camera you have, here is the warning to * always * back up your photos. Accidents happen and you need to be prepared for that. It is not worth leaving your entire photo library (travel memories, your children, etc.) in the hands of chance.
