As with any new operating system release, software compatibility must be considered.
 
The first compatibility consideration for Canon DSLR owners is that Canon EOS Utility reportedly does not work under Mac OS X Lion.
 
Update: Canon EOS Utility 2.8.1 is compatible, but the next two versions are not (thanks Vas).
 
Nikon has issued the following statement regarding Mac OS X version 10.7 Lion Compatibility (note that "plan to test" does not mean "currently functions properly"):
 
We plan to test the Macintosh versions of the following software applications for compatibility with Mac OS X version 10.7 (some older applications will not be tested). We will announce our plans regarding full compatibility once testing is complete.
 
- Capture NX 2
- ViewNX 2
- Camera Control Pro 2
- WT-4 Setup Utility/Thumbnail Selector
- nik Color Efex Pro 3.0
- PC-PJ Transfer
 
We do not intend to provide compatibility with the following applications.
 
- Capture NX Ver. 1.x
- Camera Control Pro Ver. 1.x
- Nikon Capture series
- ViewNX Ver. 1.x
- Nikon Transfer Ver. 1.x
- PictureProject
- Nikon View series
- Nikon Scan series
- PictureProject COOLPIX Remote Control
- WT-3 Setup Utility
- Wireless Camera Setup Utility
- Wireless Connecting Utility
- nik Color Efex Pro 2.0
 
In addition, we do not plan to provide compatibility for other software, or SCSI- or serial-connection products. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause
 
Thanks John

Capture NX 2.2.7 Updater
 
Support for RAW images captured with the D5100 has been added.
 
The following issues have been resolved.
 
In some rare cases, when the Highlight Protection function under Quick Fix in the Develop section of the Edit List was applied to RAW images, edges around highlights were darkened.
 
When the Image Dust Off function under Camera & Lens Corrections in the Develop section of the Edit List was applied to reduce reflection of dust on the image sensor in images, the results of this dust reduction were sometimes noticeable.
 
When RAW images captured with the camera’s auto distortion control function enabled were opened, or the Auto Distortion function under Camera & Lens Corrections in the Develop section of the Edit List was set to Automatic for a RAW image, Capture NX 2 sometimes quit unexpectedly.
 
RAW images sometimes could not be opened, or, when attempting to open a RAW image, Capture NX 2 sometimes quit unexpectedly.
 
Mac OS X only - When an image was saved with Capture NX 2, time of the Date Created information recorded to Exif data was sometimes not correct.

(However, still images cannot be captured and movies cannot be recorded in Special Effects mode when live view mode is enabled.)
