The iPad Pro, iPhone, etc. All have great forward and rear-facing cameras, but the 720p resolution camera on the MacBook is noisy, looks flat and lacks depth-sensing technology.

What is the best Mac compatible CCTV DVR software? This is a questions that I have heard countless times since I started CCTV Camera Pros with my business partner. Being a Mac user myself, I have always sought out to find the best surveillance software and security systems that works well with Macintosh computers. My name is Mike Haldas. I am the co-founder of CCTV Camera Pros and I am in charge of the company’s product research and development.
When Greg and I started the company, we noticed that there were very few surveillance system manufacturers that were developing surveillance software for Mac users. Almost all of the security camera viewing software was based on Active X controls and only worked on Windows. Since that time, I have constantly been testing DVRs (stand-alone and PC based models) to find the ones that work best with Mac. I believe that we discovered the very best one – iDVR-PROs stand alone CCTV DVRs. The latest models are “hybrid” which means they support older analog CCTV cameras and the latest HD-over-Coax security cameras (AHD, HD-TVI, and HDCVI).
Here are some of the reasons why I love the new iDVR-PROs and the software apps used to monitor them (not just for Mac users, but for all users).
Easy to Use Software Interface
Mac users expect the very best graphical user interfaces on the devices that they buy. We like things to be intuitive, easy to understand, and useful. The user Interface of the new iDVR-PRO CCTV DVRs is outstanding. Users can navigate the interface using the USB mouse or wireless remote control that is included. Watch the below video to see how easy the interface is to use.
1080p HD Security Camera View
The Mac software for iDVR-PRO surveillance DVRs now supports remotely viewing analog CCTV cameras and HD security cameras. Watch the below video to see a demo of viewing 1080p security cameras using the software. You can learn more about these hybrid HD security camera DVRs here.
Important Note: Click the gear icon in the lower right of the video player and 1080p resolution so that you can view the video in the highest resolution available.
Live Camera View from Mac Software
Everyone with a video surveillance system expects to be able to login remotely to view their security cameras live from over the Internet. It amazes me how some manufacturers still do not create client software for Mac users to do this, being that the global market share for Macintosh based PCs is growing.
The DVR viewer software for Mac that is included with the iDVR-PRO is excellent. Watch the below video to see me login to the DVR at our office from my MacBook Air laptop.
Recorded Surveillance Video Playback on Mac
In addition to the outstanding live camera viewing, the Macintosh software also supports remote search and playback of surveillance video footage that has been recorded to the DVRs hard drive. Using the DVR viewer software, users can also export segments of video and save them as MPEG-4 files that can be played back on any Mac or Windows PC using Quicktime or Windows media player.
DVR Viewer App for iOS
Most Mac users also use iPhones and iPads as their choice for mobile and tablet devices. The iOS app for iDVR-PRO security DVRs let users login to their DVR over WIFI, 3G, 4G, and LTE to view their cameras live. Like the desktop software, app also lets users search and playback recorded video footage from the DVR’s hard drive.

Why won't my MacBook Pro recognize my Nikon camera? - 1
I tried multiple USB cords and on both ports, it works with my Canon Powershot fine, but won't show up when I plug in my Nikon D40.
Also I was taking pictures and when I went to upload them into my computer magically everything was lost? I had hundreds of pictures in there and I know for a fact I did not do any deleting. Now when I turn it on it tells me I need to format the card. What's going on?
What are you attempting to do?
If you are attempting to copy image files from your camera to your computer, you need to remove the memory card from the camera and insert it into your Apple computer. Use Finder to copy all the images from the card to a new file folder you name for the subject/location and date so you can find the images years later
If when you have your card in the card reader, the card shows empty or is said it needs to be formatted (do NOT format any of your cards using your Apple computer)
Download a free image recovery program like the Transcend RecoveRx and using it, recover the images that have become corrupted on your memory card
MacBook Pros usually only recognise Apple products
If all you need to do is copy photos from the camera to the computer, you don't need to fix that issue. Get a cheap USB card reader and use that to connect the camera's memory card directly to the computer's USB slot then use Finder to do the copying to know exactly where you put the photos and to be sure the quality does not change during the process.
I suspect, unfortunately, that you have not been following the explicit instructions (page 55 of the manual), which says the order of connection is computer ON, switch camera OFF, attach USB cord to both devices, switch camera ON. The software on the MBP (iPhoto or Photos, depending on the age of the MBP) will detect the connection and allow you to import photos.
The alternative is to take the SD card out of the camera (switch the camera OFF first!) and put it straight into the slot on the MBP. Again, iPhoto/Photos will detect the pictures directly. Before you remove the card, it is vital to use the software Eject in Finder. I suspect that you have not done that, which is why the card is now scrambled. Don't try and write anything to the card. Use a file recovery program to retrieve the missing pictures first, and then reformat the card in the camera, NOT in the computer.
You don'tknow what youre doing because you didn't follow the instructions in the Nikon manual
Man, ask a question, get a bunch of nasty responses.
AVDADDY is Idiot. If you don't want to respond, its OK but respond in nasty way
