I am very happy with my D800 and now I want to connect it to my new MacBook Air.
Under OS 10.8 I have installed ViewNX2 and some questions about this:
If I connect the camera, NikonTransfer starts and I can transfer pictures from camera to Mac. In ViewNX2, I can see the images. So far so good, I guess. I would expect the camera to show up as a device in Mac's Finder, but it doesn't. Is this correct or what am I doing wrong?
Now, I also installed windows7 under VM on the Mac. Very handy for programs that solely run under windows. If I connect the D800, I can choose to connect it to Windows or Mac. If I select Windows (under VM), I get error messages of not finding the right drivers. Any advice?
Thanks in advance! Hans


Happy with my new D800!
