I'm starting to use Aperture more and more after seeing the potential, still using Photoshop for more heavily composited images, but using them both together as a roundtrip workflow is just perfect for me.
One warning though, Aperture is one heavy app when it comes processing power. Go for the fastest graphics card you can find, that's where the biggest power draw is.

Capture One Pro
Capture One LE
As far as I know Phase One is the company behind Capture One - so those are identical.
The Art of Raw Conversion (outbackphoto.com)
I'm currently reading that one too. But I must say I'm slightly disappointed because the knowledge is mainly basic only a few expert tips. honestly not much new to me. and heck he is repeatingly telling me how to click on a neutral grey for white balance. if i was gonna write a book i wouldn't repeat myself in two consecutive chapters - at least not without explaining the reason for this.
it's more like a quick how to use this and that piece of software which i can figure out myself - especially since they all white balance in the same way. click.

I'm pretty new to shooting in raw but am currently using Canon Digital Photo Pro for .CR2 files from my Canon Rebel XT and Arcsoft PhotoImpressions 5 for .raw files from my Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ30. I like them both but wish I could convert raw files to different raw file formats so I could play with my Rebel pix in Arcsoft and vise versa. I would like to try some of the other softwear mentioned as well. Great thread!

RAW shooter Premium 2006
Occationally Adobe RAW in CS2
RAW shooter needs some adjustment in the settings - My boyfriend bought some ICC profiles for RawShooter at
They are for the 20D but works great with my 350D as well.
