Don't have my Mk IV any longer, but I don't recall this being possible as, at least on MacOS, the cameras are not mounted as mass storage devices.

As has been said, the cards are not recognized as mass storage devices so they don’t show in the ‘Finder’.

However if you open a photo app, ‘Photos’, photoshop, Lightroom etc the cards are listed as viewable and you can see all the images on them.

Yes... I use darktable for import.. LOL
but I don't use it anymore for editing.
On linux I use rapid photo downloader which was an amazing piece of software. But sadly there is nothing similar for macOS.

But what functionality does that give you that Finder doesn’t when you use a card reader?

It varies some by model, mainly whether the computer has an SD card slot. My iMac does, so I just pop in the card, and it shows up in the Finder like any other drive. I can drag and drop the photo files to any folder I like. Or I can bring them in though Bridge or probably Photos. I would think any Mac with a card slot would work that way, and so should a card reader plugged into USB.

If I ever upgrade my Mac, I guess I will have to spend a few hundred dollars at OWC for hubs, adaptors, cables, dongles, etc., to get into the modern world of Thunderbolt 5 and USB 8 or whatever the two ports it will have by then.

It automatically renames the photos as I defined and structures the photos in folders, its also extremely fast and let's me automatically add or remove exif data.. Finder can't do all this.
I do have a SD card reader but I also have one CF memory card... But I don't want to bring with me ( and buy it) one more card reader for CF cards. I think it's kind of nonsense to spend money on a technology that is already extinct.

Canon supports the EOS5Ds(r) too, yet. I got the usb30 port compatibility issues too and the update solve this similar like on my 5d4. I don't use an Mac and would plan this.

Interesting since there hasn't been a reference in anything USB related in EOS 5DsR firmware updated.
