Nikon Product Advisory for Sierra

Postby xjubier » Fri Dec 30, 2016 2:31 pm

Nikon Japan published a warning about a possible image data corruption in View NX-i when transferring images with Nikon Transfer 2 on macOS Sierra version 10.12.2. The latest ViewNX-i version 1.2.4 is compatible with macOS Sierra version 10.12 but it is not compatible with macOS Sierra version 10.12.1 or later and you should not use Nikon Transfer 2 until an update is released.

Moreover tethering a Nikon camera under Sierra is not working properly due to changes made by Apple and the behavior has change again with macOS Sierra version 10.12.2.
One way yo make it work is to launch Image Capture, then connect the cameras, power them up before finally launching Solar Eclipse Maestro. Yet there are still bugs, nevertheless it should be mostly working.
Similar issues exists with Canon DSLRs.

Fixes will hopefully be available by late January 2017.

[Update] Solar Eclipse Maestro 1.8.5v1 includes the fixes. Make sure you also upgrade to Sierra 10.2.4 as Apple did fix quite a few bugs.
