Nikon Coolpix cameras include photo-transfer software compatible with Mac computers. Additionally, Coolpix cameras are compatible with iPhoto, the photo management application that is a part of the Mac OS X operating system. Regardless of which option you use to transfer photos from the camera to the computer, the method of connecting the Coolpix camera to a Mac is the same.
1. Turn on the Mac computer.
2. Turn off the Nikon Coolpix camera.
3. Connect the USB cable included with the camera to the camera and the USB port on the Mac. The camera powers up once connected, but the camera display remains off.
