    Any small portable tethered solutions out there?

    Hi,

    On about 95% of my commercial location shoots I can tethered to my macbook pro.

    On some shoots, say where its a tighter quicker minimal gear affair..me, my camera and a tripod, is there any solution to viewing images on a screen larger than the backs of the cameras so that I can check composition, verticals, etc.

    It only needs to be 5 inch or so, does not need to do anything but show the images as I shoot them, and be flat so that it can hang around the tripod.(i.e not a keyboard with a screen at a right angle to that.
    Connection by usb.

    So anything out there that fits the bill?

    Marc

    Megavision use some small computer with an LCD screen of about the size that you're looking for but I don't know the brand. Talk to them it might be just what you're looking for.

    just found out the epson viewers - P-7000 etc now have a firmware upgrade allowing tethering of certain cameras...will look into it.
