    Hi guys,

    have seen this before on various shoots, basically as soon as a photo is taken it is uploaded on to a laptop/monitor for instant viewing. Any idea how to do this?

    Thanks!

    Nikon also make several wireless doodads that I believe you can sync and remote control your camera with.

    So does Canon. However, the battery grip for 5D mk2 costs as much as what I paid for the camera. Alternatively, you can just buy the 6D.

    eye-fi is what I use, depend on the camera, it's quite reliable on most Nikons. Not as reliable on CF card Canon such as 5D2, but still usable, just don't read from the card while writing or shoot burst.

    As already mentioned
    Easy cheap way, Lightroom + massive USB cable
    Expensive, some sort of wifi transmitter + lightroom

    I did use a USB cable as its cheap as chips and works well in small spaces but then broke the usb port on the camera so watch out for this method.

    Or if you love running linux, you could use Darktable, which is basically lightroom but free.. (waits for the the haters to hate)
