Apple has released yet another compatibility update for the RAW format in digital cameras for use with iPhoto and Aperture, and it makes the following (mostly new) cameras compatible:

  • Canon PowerShot S100
  • Nikon 1 J1
  • Nikon 1 V1
  • Nikon COOLPIX P7100
  • Olympus PEN E-PL1s
  • Olympus PEN E-PL3
  • Olympus PEN E-PM1
  • Panasonic LUMIX DMC-FZ150
  • Sony Alpha NEX-5N
  • Sony Alpha SLT-A65
  • Sony Alpha SLT-A77

Spiffy! I'm interested to see the new PowerShot in there -- it's relatively inexpensive for cameras that can take pictures in the RAW format, and the PowerShot line is generally good for beginner to mid-level users. Of course, you should always do your own research before embarking on a camera purchase, but if you want a cheap(er) way to play with the RAW format, that might be a good option. As always, the update is available through Software Update.
