Hey All!

 

I have a Z6 with no external XQD card reader.  I use a Macbook Pro for my main computer.  I tried the following steps to connect the Z6 to my laptop to transfer video and nothing happened. 

 

1) Turn off Camera

2) Plug camera into computer with USB-C (using Mac thunderbolt cable)

3) Turn on Camera

 

What am I missing?

 

I can do the WiFi, I've done this for pictures.  The WiFi is not good for the 1080/120p video I did, takes about 4 hours to transfer 10 mins of video.

What version of MacOS are you on? I am not sure if Image Capture handles the Z6, but the latest release probably does.

 

Nikon did away with the mass storage mode 10 years ago, so your camera won't show up in Finder.

 

Have you tried downloading and installing Nikon's own software?
