I am more than a bit embarrassed to be asking such a trivial question but I will have to get over that if I am to learn how to use this camera in a wireless tethered format. I would like to
ask if anyone has had experience setting up the wireless WT5 on a new Mac computer. There is a reference to the USB connection on the D4 and MTP/PTP. It is stated in a pop-up from the wireless transmitter utility that one is to set the camera's USB option to MTP/PTP.
For the life of me I have not been able to find reference to the MTP/PTP anywhere in the accompanying paper work that came with the camera and also I cannot find reference to the USB connection in the various D4 menus. I have torn out just about all of the few remaining hairs on my bald head trying to sort this out. I desperately need help.

Thank you to anyone how offers a suggestion on this matter. Also, can anyone recommend
a good reference outside Nikon that would help me sort out the WT5 setup. I am really confused by it all.
