A reader sent me this email - has anyone experienced this issue?
I bought the brand new MacBook Air in June as it first came out. Thinking that would be the perfect laptop to shoot tethering with Lightroom 5 + Nikon D800 on location. The camera was never recognized whenever it was plugged in. I tried different cables, upgrading firmware. No luck. So, I took it to Apple Store on the weekend, the Genius tried various things. Even without Lightroom, the Apple Preview app also didn't recognized when the camera was plugged in. Perplex, the Genius tried plugging in the camera into 2 other brand new MacBook Air on the floor. No luck. Curious, he plugged it in the MacBook pro and last generation of MacBook Air, then it worked. So, there is something wrong with the current generation of MacBook Air hardware. Apple accepted the return even after 30 days. Anyone has the same problem?
Mac OSX 10.8.4
Nikon D800 firmware latest
