I'm REALLY frustrated at the moment and can't figure out heads or tails from all the chatter on the web about ElCapitan vs earlier Operating Systems and tether functionality.
My D4s used to tether wonderfully to my MBP and LR5.7. Then I upgraded to ElCapitan and can't get the tether function to work. My camera is not recognized. I've read so much about this works but not that, CC/Cloud is supported then it's not, and so forth I'm simply overwhelmed and need an answer from the creators.
Will my D4s tether to my MBP with the following:
OS-X ElCapitan v10.11.4
And if it won't work, what do I need to do in order to get it to work? I'm not really interested in purchase of new software at the moment. Cash flow thing..... Is there a way to update my existing 5.7 or did it get dropped for CC?
Well , you can try updating the Lightroom to 5.7 to 5.7.1 version, refer: Adobe - Lightroom : For Macintosh : Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5.7.1 : Thank You
Also, its not working since you have upgraded to ElCapitan therefor you need to make some changes in permission and check if that helps.
Go to Finder >> Click on Go on the top menu bar >> Click on Go to Folder >> Go to the below locations and provide the full access to the Adobe folder.
Refer for the permission change instructions: OS X Yosemite: Set permissions for items on your Mac
Unfortunately Apple broke the Nikon SDK with El Capitan and you will need to update your Lightroom to the current.
You don't need CC and can get an upgrade price for Lr6 then update to 6.5.
The permissions mentioned above have no bearing on this.
Apple broke it, Nikon took some time to update the SDK and Adobe don't update old software....
Hope that helps clarify..
