    Should be the same as any other camera, put cable in drive comes up on desktop. May need to change the finder options to show drives.

    Think ive cracked it. Managed to send images to a file. Only pain is having to set click "apply to enclosed items" within the folder settings to be able to open an image everytime i add a batch of images to the folder. Still, at least im getting them to the MAC now.

    How did you setup the shared folder on the MAC to stored those images? It isn't showing up in the browser in my G6...Saves me having to take a look...

    BTW Are you shooting tethered that way, for example setup a watched folder in Lightroom or Aperture?

    Right click on folder
    "Get Info"
    Tick "Shared Folder"
    Down to Sharing & Permissions and allow Read & Write to the main user.

    System Preferences

    Add the same file in the "Shared Folders" window

    [​IMG]

    Click options and make sure AFP and SMB are ticked. When it asks to connect manually and you are presented with the key pad screen on the camera to enter a name I entered the computer name as above which was "imac"
