You don't need an upgrade. You need to use a file that Preview is compatible with like jpg or tif files or nef files from older cameras. Until Apple catches up with the new cameras like the Df or D5300 it won't read their raw files.
In your case 10.6.8 may be older than the D800 so you won't be able to show raw files in Preview but jpg files should be fine. I have 10.8.5 on my computer and it read raw files just fine but not Df files.
You can also hit the "Nikon" tab from "Show Inspector" and "Shutter Count" is presented as the second to last item in the list. gobigdave is absolutely right. If you have a Mac, you don't need additional actuation software. The "Show Inspector" option will provide you with all the metadata you could possibly need.

A Nikon camera’s shutter actuation count is contained in the EXIF of each picture.* Unfortunately, not every graphics program that displays EXIF data shows this specific info (I’ve no idea who not). For instance, Photoshop will, but Lightroom won’t.
To obtain the latest actuation info, using Photoshop CC, load the last photo you’ve taken with the camera in question--make sure the photo has not been edited and then resaved because this may alter the EXIF info.
From the menu, choose:
File > File Info…
Choose the ‘Advanced’ tab from the resultant pop up meta data viewer.
Click to open the ‘Schema’ section which should be the 5th item down the Property Tree list.
The camera’s shutter actuation count for the photo is displayed as:
Well shows that you can always learn new tricks. I had always used the exif free software program and only purchased my iMac a year ago, having been a windows user for some 16 years it was bit of a challenge but am getting to grips with the Mac so this has taught me something new, thanks.
I found these threads very interesting and also found a 16,000 + figure on the software that sort of surprised me. Does anyone know if this number is individual clicks or may also include each frame taken during my videos. If so that could explain a lot. Thanks to all Tom LaPaz Mexico
