Software that allows you to down load a photo to your computer when you take the shot without pulling the card? I can see it's extremely helpful to leave the camera on the tripod and be able to see the photo just taken without handling, or moving, the camera.

Thanks in advance,

Kent

But I think it is also a piece of hardware that attaches to you computer (assuming you don't mean tethering your camera to your PC), as there has to be something to transmit the photo from the camera to the PC.

Last I checked they weren't cheap either.

Hi Kent,

I had this facility on my previous Fuji camera, with the facility used with RAW format pictures. The process involved using the Fujifilm Hyper-Utility Software and my camera connected via Firewire to my laptop or PC. One great advantage was that I could see the image through the camera on my laptop screen and fire the camera using the keyboard.

You will need to do some research on camera manufacturers and the facilities they offer.

Regards,

John

Hi Kent,

You should be able to tether the camera via a USB cable, I can't speak for your set-up but when I'm taking pictures my camera lives on it's tripod and I take more photos than I need. I will then pull the card and check the results.

I'm not sure if you can cable the camera to a laptop and instantly preview the result, some manufacturers offer add-ons or accessories that allow wireless/bluetooth connections between devices.

I hope this helps

Brian

Is this it?

I have tried the free version, and works great on ipad or iphone, but you still need a USB cable, to connect the camera to a PC.
Works also as a remote (its most interesting feature)

Cheers

There's a WI-FI card that you use just like your normal card. It sends the photo to your computer.
I can't remember the brand.
