    Hi,

    Has anyone...or what consumer range cameras or current software offer a live or quicker visual feedback on a mac/pc screen? instead of looking cameras' small screen. Camcorders offer live capture on computers.

    I have a Canon 400D and MAC, is it possible with software via lead or via a bluet-tooth adapter connected to the camera for wireless transfer to pc/mac? (may be slow for instant feedback) for in-studio use.

    Yes you would need to use Canons Software ( Remember that shiny plastic disc in that box your camera came in ?:laugh: )
    It is called remote capture, I believe part of the Canon EOS utility

    Yes, Canon remote capture software is excellent. You can control the camera from your PC and click the mouse to release the shutter. The pic comes straight into Zoombrowser for you to take a look at. Nice.
