    Hello,
    we got 2 nearly identical iMacs, one Retina and one not, both with identical OSX and apps.

    When I connect my SONY camera to the non-Retina one, it is correctly USB-mounted as 3 devices.
    However, when I connect the camera to the Retina iMac, also Photos pops up, which I don't want.
    I can not find a preference that could prevent this behaviour.
    Thanks for reading.
    ;JOOP!

    Click the 'Import' tab on Photos.

    Towards the left-hand side (underneath the close/maximise traffic light system), you'll see your SONY device listed. Untick the option 'Open Photos for this device'.

    This will then prevent it from auto-opening the app in future when you connect your camera.

    Excellent, pleased to hear that worked. I was hoping you could offer me some support now.

    What on Earth does ";JOOP!" mean?

    Well, talk about giving an answer that poses more questions. Whatever you're smoking or popping, hook me up. :D
