It also adds support for several more cameras including the Nikon D200 and Canon 30D.

If you already own Aperture 1.0, Apple is also offering a US$200 gift coupon that is redeemable at the online Apple Store. Aperture 1.1 is a now priced at $299, and is available as a free update to current version 1.0 users.
