Nikon today released their new SDKs that support El Capitan. The new SDKs support all previous Nikon Cameras except the D40, D40X, D60, D80, and D200. Here at CameraRC we are planning to release the update to support El Capitan in our Deluxe Edition sometime in January of 2016. We have quite a bit of work to do both to integrate with the new SDK and test the updates. If you would like to be notified when support is ready or help in our BETA testing please sign up on our El Capitan mailing list.
We have been investigating issues with getting CameraRC Deluxe to connect cameras on OSX 10.11 (El Capitan) and have determined this is an issue with compatibility between the Nikon provided SDK and the OSX operating system. It appears that the Nikon libraries will no longer connect to the cameras. From what we can tell CameraRC Deluxe is not the only program facing this issue, we have seen reports that other tethering solutions are having a similar problem (http://nikonrumors.com/2015/10/05/tethering-nikon-cameras-with-lightroom-6cc-2015-on-el-capitan-os-is-not-working.aspx/).
For the latest information on El Capitan support see our UPDATE.
We are happy to announce the release of the new CameraRC Deluxe Edition. CameraRC Deluxe Edition has all of the great features of our standard edition, plus adds in native Mac support along with a number of great new usability features.
