How to display a images on a screen

Postby luckymadrabbit » Wed Jun 03, 2009 3:09 pm


Im in need off some advise so I have come to vist you wise people to see if you can help me.

Currently when takeing photos I have to rely on the little screen in my Canon EOS 450D. I was wondering if there was anyway to stream the taken photo straight to a computer so that I can quicky veiw and check the quality of the photo on a larger screen.

I dont have much mouney so I cant go buying loads off new equipment so if you know a way I can do this on the cheap that would be a great help.

If you want to view the whole image at high resolution then essentially I think you have to transfer the shots to computer regardless.

One possibility if I'm not mistaken, the 450D supports tethered shooting with a live display on computer. EOS utility should be on the CD you got with the camera, connect it via USB cable and shots can be saved directly to computer I think. Worth looking into.
