I still need the answer.

I can use iMovie to move the videos to the computer. In the old days, Connecting by the PC choice would upload to my Mac without a problem. Now it does not automatically open Photos.

Unfortunately, High Sierra is not compatible with everything yet so it causes issues so that is likely the problem right now.

It seems like Panasonic and Apple are not in sync with the ability of the camera to communicate with High
Sierra. Can you get your programmers to talk to Apple to,elinimate the incompatibility?
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
I spoke to the Apple rep in Best Buy. He will try to get the issue resolved from his end. I also wrote to Apple to alert them to the problem.

Yes, I can alert them for you.

Thank you. I saw that High Sierra has quite a list of devices that are not compatible at this time.

Yes, they do unfortunately.

New operating systems are great but they can stink for a little bit with the incompatibilities.

If you have any questions, please let me know otherwise if you can take a minute and use the rating system to rate our session as 5 stars and press Submit so I am credited with helping you.
