Something else I just tried last weekend that is extremely helpful when doing studio type work is shooting tethered to your lap top.

Instant feedback with each shot. Way easier to make adjustments when seeing your image on a 15" screen versus a 3" screen.

Considering all the software to do this comes with each Canon camera, there really no reason not to do it unless I guess you don't have a lap top or a near by computer.

If you have not tried for indoor work, you really owe it to yourself to give it a go.

It's even sweeter on an iPad or such tablet without a cable...;)

Right now I "cheat" by connecting a cable to my laptop and use a remote desktop app for my iPad2 for wireless display off my laptop. This way, I can shoot and watch the laptop display while whoever my model can look at the iPad2 at the same time. Works just fine until I can go all wireless in the near future... :)

it's A LOT slower and LR3 doesn't run to well on a iPad. :lol:

LR3 is too slow tethering anyways. I use Capture One and Capture Pilot for the iPad. The speed is really good.

Shuttersnitch its a great program as well. I use it on my iPad with my wft transmitter. Super fast, and super easy to use. I love the rate system where my clients can rate the images they like as they are coming in.

In my home studio, I shoot from camera to Macbook Pro running lightroom and then push it to my 55" Sony flatscreen.


It's a great way to keep everyone interested in what's going on; designers, stylists, hair and make-up, all have a chance to see (and fix) everything.

For now I'm content shooting wired but I have a friend who is considering wireless, with 5DII. He's considering the wft-e4II, he had the other Canon wireless, I can't remember the number of it right now, with a 1Ds MarkII and found it useless, just too slow with RAW files. He's asking me questions I can't answer, hopefully you can.

How fast is super fast?

Are you shooting RAW?

If RAW transfer is too slow, more than 2 or 3 seconds for him is too slow, is it possible to shoot RAW + SJPG and send just the JPG to the Mac Pro or iPAD for viewing? Keeping the RAW on the card.

Can you shoot without a wireless internet connection available?

I guess I should have said that some of the questions might be dumb. :o I don't have an ipad, I use a Macbook Pro as does my friend. His is OSX Lion if that makes a difference. He also has an ipad which is the reason for the question.
