If you’re a Nikon shooter who tethered to Adobe Lightroom on your Mac the past few months have been rough. Well it’s time to celebrate (and update your Adobe Lightroom)!

Adobe has released Lightroom CC 2015.44 and 6.4 with a big bug fix addressing an issue that was preventing Nikon users from shooting tethered to Lightroom if they had recently updated to Apple’s OS El Capitan.

The bug was a huge detriment to photographers who shot with a Nikon and tethered to a Mac as Lightroom is one of the more popular pieces of software on the market. The latest update is named Lightroom CC 2015.4 or Lightroom 6.4 if you’re not subscribed to Creative Cloud. You can read about the other upgrades, including the new boundary wrap on

  1. The bug was Nikon’s. Apple’s update for El Capitan deprecated Nikon’s ability to communicate with its cameras. As Lightroom requires the support of a working SDK from Nikon to invoke tethering, and Nikon didn’t fix their problem for months, it is pretty disingenuous to call this Lightroom’s bug.

    Canon users, Windows users and Nikon users with no OS upgrade all continued to work…

  2. Yeah this is Nikon’s beef. What sucks is that all the Digital Techs will have to stick with Yosemite for the foreseeable future until either Nikon gets in gear or Phase One figures out a fix too…
