    External viewer for Hasselblad CFV-50?

    The screen on the back of the CFV-50 is so small and coarse that I wonder if there is a way to review photos in the field right after they are taken on an external device like an iPhone or phablet that has a high quality screen? I see the CFV-50 back has a Firewire output. Could this be used for this purpose.
    It would also be nice to zoom in and pan to check focus.
    Thanks.

    You can try the Eye-fi approach that I discussed in the recent thread below...

    The Firewire jack on the back allows tethered operations with any firewire equipped computer/laptop. You can use Phocus and LR software for tethered operations.

    The input jack into the laptop can be FW800 or FW400 (a second FW 800/400 cable should have been supplied with the camera back).

    However, while tethered you can also use Phocus Mobile with an iPhone or iPad:
