that it does, although if you're doing tethered shooting http://www.gbtimelapse​.com/Product_gbt.aspx (external link) is easier.

Wow...I'm glad someone got the TI-83 thing to work. That's pretty cool.

RS60-E3 Extension Cord.

If you want to get farther away from the camera but don't want to use the RC-1 IR remote the RS60 remote is kind of short. I have on several occasions wanted to do this and still be behind the camera and out of the frame. To solve this problem I took my RS60 with me to my local Radio Shack (an electronic parts store here in the states). For about $17 with tax I picked up the adapters and cord to give myself a 20-foot extension cord. All you need are 1.) 274-397 Audio adapter 3/32" to 1/8" 1.) 274-373 Audio adapter 1/8" to 3/32" and 1.) 42-2562 20FT stereo headphone extension cord. The 3/32" to 1/*" plugs in to the camera's remote jack, then plug the extension cord into that, then plug the 1/8" to 3/32" into the extension cord, and finally the RS60 into that.

That'll be great for northern lights, thank you !

Now to shoot from the comfort of my car :)

Way to record video on 50D???

So you get live view on your laptop screen when it is wired to it. Is there a way to record what is shown on the screen so that it becomes a video recorder?

I made a ringflash for pop-up, from a plastic ice cream tub, a fountain drink cup, and some potato chip bag for lining.
Also built an ultrathin, really rugged softbox out a 20" x 24" x 2 3/4" developing tray, a peice of white cardboard, and a peice of white plexiglass.
If anyone is interested in seeing pics or knowing how to build these let me know.
Oh yeah and I also poked a hole in the bottom of an oatmeal container, world's cheapest snoot!

Can and how do you connect your camera to laptop?

Haven't tried this. Haven't seen anything like this.Not sure if this is posted anywhere else here. For the Rebel XT/350d. Enables ISO 3200, spot metering and shutter counts.
