OS X El Capitan breaks Nikon and Leica Tethering

Macintosh users who like to tether their Nikons, take note.  After digging into the problem of tethering no longer working with Nikon and Leica cameras following the Apple OS X release El Capitan, I have learned that Apple removed some low level access protocols for security reasons.  I am in favour of security but am not in favour of serious functional breakage.  Apple is allegedly working on a fix.  In the interim, if tethering to Nikon or Leica is important to you, DO NOT UPDATE to El Capitan.  This is an OS issue, not a Lightroom, Capture ONE, or Nikon Camera Control issue.
