    No, neither can any other MFD camera system.

    One of the saddest facts and biggest rip offs going.

    Apple chose not to do it in order to preserve their laptop business and third party vendors are scared of being sued by them.

    Apple became the Bg Brother of their 1984 parody commercial.

    See my other thread on this "invention needed". There are currently products available for Canon DSLRs to be tethered to your ipad/iphone. Why not MDFB? It seems the market is too small to motivate inventors.

    The issue here is/was Firewire and now, Thunderbolt.

    You can attach USB to almost anything because it is "universal". Not so with Apple's products and Phase went with Firewire (don't even think about their USB3 mess).

    Can it be tethered to a Surface Pro? In theory it should work right?

    A Surface Pro only has USB. A P+ only has firewire.

    An IQ or Credo would be the only backs capable of connecting to a Surface Pro, and then only after they release the (overdue) firmware to enable USB.
