XH2 not showing on MacBookPro finder usbc

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Thank you in advance for any help. 

As the title suggests when connecting XH2 to MacBook Pro it doesn’t show in finder. This means I cannot copy and dump files or import directly to LR.

Strangely it does show in the Photos app where I am able to import the jpegs into my Photos gallery. 

I have seen other users reporting the same problem but not found any solutions - the threads go quiet. Does anyone know how to fix this? It’s surely not correct a £2k camera on a £4k laptop cannot directly connect as an external drive. 

I have hooked it up to my PC and it is recognised as an external drive. Leads me to think it’s a software setting I missing?

My workaround/alternative is to get a CFE to usbc adapter. I didn’t really want the extra cable to carry around and also I live in a pretty remote spot in Costa Rica - it will take a few weeks to get one to me. 

Also I think I could use the wireless transfer via an app but this seems pretty long?

Have tried various TB cables.

Specs if useful:

XH2 with latest firmware 

CFExpress (Wise advanced 1TB)

connection set to usb card transfer 

MacBook Pro 2023, M2 Max 2TB 64gb, latest Os.

MacOS Image Capture utility might be your answer.

Its a software thing - the camera doesn't appear as a remote drive but you can transfer images to the MacBook.

Thank you Greybeard. It appears it is indeed a known Mac problem that they haven’t fixed. Currently the only workable option I can find is to dump everything to an external ssd then import to LR from there. Not a big hassle but not ideal to be using a work around for such a basic operation.

Or just pull out the camera's memory card and use a card reader! I got a couple of  CFExpress Type B readers from Amazon for about $25 each. Just make sure that you use a fast (10Gbit/sec) USB-C cable.

    • Not all red filters are the same, there will be a difference, if only a slight one depending on which red filter you are thinking about. Remember these are simulations, so the camera (or raw converter) will always apply the same processing to the image, but the filter is slightly different, even each time you put it on the lens, screwing it on just a little differently each time which will affect how the light is passed to or blocked from the sensor. But it will be close. If you want some fun, find a Pentax K1000 film body ~ $200 or so on the used market, a roll or two of Fujifilm Neopan 100 Acros II film ~ $15 or so a roll and some red filters ~ usually less than $50, some much less than $50, and try it. (All prices are in U.S. dollars.) note: color filters do get used on dslrs and mirrorless cameras but their use is usually limited to specialized settings or experiments because image processing tools can duplicate the view easily. 
    • I am curious to know if there is a difference between shooting the Fujifilm Film simulation Acros+R and Acros+Std with a Red filter on the lens. I don't have a red filter for  my lens otherwise I would do a test myself. Thank you for any information you can share.  
    • X100s: cannot get OVF. The switch on the front of the camera does nothing, yet it is supposed to allow switching from EVF to OVF and visa versa. This is the second X100s I've bought with the same problem. Advice please

    • Jerryy - I think that issue is different. I've taken a lot of time looking into the subject detection problems related to that bug and its always the case that the camera focuses on something different - it doesn't create a completely blurred image like the most recent image from the OP
