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?

    \$\begingroup\$ Can't speak for the D40 but almost all DSLRs support tethered shooting with a USB cable using a variety of software, including LightRoom \$\endgroup\$

    \$\begingroup\$ Thanks. Although not wireless, tt's still a good tip for me because I didn't know it could be tethered that way. \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ You can use the Nikon software, or if you already use/have Adobe Lr3 then this has tethered shooting support built right into it. \$\endgroup\$

What about using an Eye-Fi wireless SD card?

  • \$\begingroup\$ 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? \$\endgroup\$
