Is there any way I can get a remote live view of my 50D on my iPad? I know there's a way to do it with my laptop, but it'd be nice to be able to use an iPad, which is much smaller and lighter to carry around. I do some high-angle photography with my 50D on a remote pole. If I run a USB cable out of the camera, I can see where it's pointed and not waste so much time and card space trying to capture the right shot.

I saw that app, but it still requires my camera be connected to a computer (with wi-fi), then I access that computer with my iPad. I want to eliminate the computer altogether. I don't need to control the camera from the iPad, I just want to be able to see through the lens with the iPad. I can fire the shutter with my wireless remote.

The new Eye-Fi Direct Mode feature looks promising (being able to connect directly to the Eye-Fi cards from an iPad app), of course this depends on you being able to use an Eye-Fi SD adaptor (either direct SD or thru a CF adaptor).

Use one of the WFT grips (don't remember if theynmake one for the xxD series or not)

You get live view and camera control over a http web server run off of a wireless network or ad-hoc network

The downside, the grips are expensive as hell!

(on a side note, there is a company called blueslr....I think...that is working on something similar and cheaper, however only a Nixon comparable model is out now, although they are working on a canon version)

^^ very interesting, if that thing could run the Zoom Ring they would sell out, it has all the ability of the iPad setup or the wft's.

At it's price and size, it has all the other setup's pushed out.

FYI: a slew of Windows tabs are about to be released. You can run your standard Canon software on them because they run full Windows 7. Additionally, many are coming with both HDMI & USB support. Viewsonic is releasing one that runs both Windows & Android and Lenovo is coming out with one that boots Android as a tablet but you can also snap it into a laptop shell and it boots to Windows. Seems like you get a lot more for your $$, not to mention Flash support.
