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.

    • Hi all. After a long break from photography I've decided to get back into it and am about to purchase a Fuji X-E2 body (which I deem more than adequate for my needs at this point).    I had previously shot Canon but could never really afford decent glass for it. But I see times have changed and not only do Fuji seem to have some reasonably priced XF lenses, there are a number of recommended 3rd party manufacturers in the game.   I am still very much on a budget but don't need much for my particular interests. Thinking a 10-12mm, a 23-27mm and a 35mm should meet my needs (mainly street with some landscapes) and perhaps a 50mm or 60-100mm later. I'm only interested in prime lenses and reckon it comes down to a decision over whether I want AF or not.   Been looking at the Fujinon f1.4s which tick the boxes but will take me a long time to purchase given my financial situation. Happy to take it slow though if that's the general concensus (would be happier with one very good lens than three average).   The other option is the MF offerings from 7artisans, TTartisans and the like. I could pick up a few with very wide apertures (up to 0.95) very affordably. But I'm interested in the opinions of those who have used and compared them both (Fuji and non-Fuji). I don't have any natural objection to MF as I used it way back for film, but I haven't shot a mirrorless digital with a manual lens and never used zoom focusing, focus peaking etc. From what I've seen it's pretty quick and straightforward if slightly slower than AF. I must admit that the AF on my old canon DSLR used to annoy the hell out of me with the incessant hunting for focus and noise. But that was a long time ago and I'm guessing things have changed (these were also very much lower end Canon lenses).   I've had a search already, but if anyone would mind offering their opinions based on experience I'd be very grateful.   Many thanks...
    • I had this problem. I toggled between the two image disp options (full screen/small window) for OVF in the menu, and now it works again. 
    • Same here with a x h2s connected to a raveneye, losing the raveneye made my recording stop 😭

    • Hey All! I'm new here and desperate! I just upgraded from my XT3 to an XT5 and need tethering advice. A huge part of what I do is tethered shoots and I've been successfully tethering my XT3 with Fuji Tether Pro Plugin to Lightroom for years. It is essential that the software can fully control the camera. First of all it was very difficult to update the existing plugin. You have to remove it and reinstall it,  which doesn't work properly.  In the end,  I had to manually unzip the downloaded update file and enter in the code myself. More importantly.  The update does allow you to focus and take photos but the settings control doesn't work. That's means you can not adjust ISO,  Shutter speed or f-stop with the software. These buttons simply don't work when you click them. Has anybody else experienced this?  Is there perhaps a previous version of the update does work? Has anybody managed to tether with Capture one?  I read there are also bugs. I'm willing to switch systems if it fully works. If I can't fix it I'm stuck with an Xt5 that I paid a lot of money for that I can not use for its intended purposes.
