  • camera to pc sync

    Hi Guys

    A while ago I was watching something on TV and there was a photographer doing a shoot and as soon as he took a photo it would appear on his laptop

    I was just wondering what you need to do this, do I need a cable or is it a wireless thing?

    I would be wanting to do with a canon 30D

    Is it possible or does it needs to be a higher end camera?

    Thanks in advance

    You can do this with a program called Tether Pro and also the Tether Camera tool in Lightroom 3.

      The camera will have been attached via a USB cable.. I read somewhere about someone connecting something like this to their camera and using live view on their computer to control the camera.. Unforturtunately they won't send it to Switzerland, so I never got the chance to try it.

      A photo needs to start and finish in your imagination, if it passes through your camera in between, that's cool, if it doesn't, that's cool also.

          The eye-fi memory cards might do it. I've never used one but they say they upload instantly to your computer.

                To my knowledge, Photoshop does not do tethering.

                More broadly, though, Lightroom is not a subset of Photoshop. There's a reason that many people own both.

                  I see the OP is using a Canon but for those that wish to do this with a Nikon you can use Nikon Camera Control software. On my D300 I just have to change from Mass Storage setting in my settings > USB and all I do is plug in the usb from camera to laptop and camera control will open up. I can then shoot while the photos will open up automatically in Nikon ViewNX. I can also change a lot of settings on my camera from my laptop as I shoot.

                    Which camera do you have? You can do tethered shooting with a 500D and 550D etc. If you have Sony then you can't until you get up to the a7xx range.

                    I shoot tethered with my 500D and I use Eye-Fi with my Sony a580 :P It is very useful but the eye-fi cards can be very tweaky. The last shoot I did I had to put the camera next to the laptop for it to be in range :P Oh and RAW will take forever!

                    When I shoot eyefi its a case of I shoot the client, they walk to the laptop, say yes, my colleague takes 10 and clicks print. Thus, I shoot JPEG for those instances because RAW would just take too long.

                      Check the software that came with your camera. Canon includes a bunch of stuff (stuff that I rarely use and probably should use more)--tethering might be one of them.

                        Check the CDs that came with your camera. Canon puts a software program called EOS Utility that let's you shoot tethered. I've used it a bunch of times while teaching. It's free and pretty reliable as long as the camera is plugged in.

                            Here is a way to do it with cameras that don't support tethered capture in lightroom 3:
