I'm going to help a friend taking a large number of product images and I'm wondering how I can easily preview the images on a computer screen without removing the card in my camera? I will be using a Nikon D40 for taking the images and preferable looking for a product that can transfer the images wireless. Is this possible somehow?

Can't speak for the D40 but almost all DSLRs support tethered shooting with a USB cable using a variety of software, including LightRoom –  Matt Grum Oct 16 '10 at 20:36
    
yes, D40 would allow this.. but not exactly wireless ;) –  Davy Landman Oct 16 '10 at 21:05

Thanks. Although not wireless, tt's still a good tip for me because I didn't know it could be tethered that way. –  grm Oct 17 '10 at 11:15
    
I checked this out and it seems to require some expensive software from Nikon? –  grm Oct 18 '10 at 12:42
    
You can use the Nikon software, or if you already use/have Adobe Lr3 then this has tethered shooting support built right into it. –  Edd Oct 19 '10 at 11:05

What about using an Eye-Fi wireless SD card?

Eye-Fi is a very good option but not all cameras support it. –  Rish Oct 17 '10 at 5:27
    
According to their webpage Nikon D40 is supported. –  asalamon74 Oct 17 '10 at 7:31
    
Great tip! I suppose it's possible to get it to do automatic sync with a folder on my machine to get some poor man tethering with e.g. Picasa? –  grm Oct 17 '10 at 11:17
