Nope. Just a simple cheap usb cable from the usb plug on your camera to the computer. Your camera may have come with one.

I've also successfully used a usb extension cable to get the computer 10ft from the camera. Probably could get a longer cord and get even farther away if desired.

Yea, or you can buy an extension like this: http://www.amazon.com …00182CIB8/ref=p​d_sim_pc_1 (external link) and use the cable you already have. They are about the same cost likely.

It also wouldn't hurt to grab the latest drivers for your camera from Canon's website if you haven't done that already. Once you get the camera recognized by the computer just fire Lightroom up, choose File-> Tethered Capture -> Start Tethered Capture and snap away!

There are quite a few external monitors out there appropriate for dSLR use. on Amazon or B&H search for "dSLR monitor". While most of them were originally designed for the dSLR Video market, they provide a much larger image and some have HD resolution, but you absolutely need to use the camera HDMI output. If you use a control/view device such as the Cam Ranger, you will be constrained to USB resolution, which is quite a bit less resolution, but may be absolutely fine for general image composition. I use a Small HD DP6 for fine adjustment of lens tilt angle and focus when the camera is too low to the ground for LCD use, and highly value the better resolution.

Note this article is quite detailed about setting up the camera & monitor settings for maximum detail.

Another alternative is the HDMI out on the 7D. This basically projects what you would normally see on the rear LCD. When I shoot in a room with one of my big screen TVs I'll connect the HDMI to get instant feedback on my pic. Taking this a step further, you could buy a cheap LCD monitor (easily had for under $100) with HDMI in and create a rig for shoots (you'd need a power source though - assuming that's not a problem).

Not exactly what you're after, but could help in a pinch.

that sounds awesome, i have a 39" smart tv so that could be an option, but hauling my tv to the bike shop may be a hassle but its worth a try

I scanned this thread and I did not see any suggestion for use of an Android tablet with USB cable. There are a large number of choices with different prices and somewhat different capabilities. The key enabling element is dDLR Controller, an Android App suitable for use on smart phone or tablet. The tablet offers a larger, more dedicated, option with 7-10 inch screen in the price range of $200 +/- $40. dSLR Controller costs $9 from the Google Play Store and installs itself automatically. You merely obtain the appropriate USB cable and you are good to go. I also bought a RAM mounting kit for my tripod, so now I can set this up in the field and seemy Samsung Galaxy II 7" screen, do focus bracketing, vastly extended HDR capture (not currently supported in Canon firmware) and both at the same time. Practically anything can be automated. dSLR Controller is listed in beta but all reports suggest it is fully stable and not what one thinks of as a beta product. There are home-brew kits to extend the functionality to wireless operation.
