I've been out of photography for a while and trying to catch up with the new stuff out there. I'm planning on buying a new camera and would like to know if there is a way to transfer photos wirelessly from the camera to the computer while I'm shooting them. I'm going to work on a food photography project very soon and I would like the client to see the photos in my iMac while I'm taking them... could this be done wirelessly?... what do I need in the computer and the camera?

Google camranger. It will do everything you are looking to do.

The Camranger is ok but I don't want to control de camera with the iPad or with the computer. I just want to be able to send the photo to the computer so my client can see it and my assistance can start working with the photo in Photoshop. I just want to be able to transfer the photo...

There are several solutions.

You can use the WFT adapters. It cost quite a penny but works.
I have seen in the past (I don't remember where) a usb->bluetooth->usb solution which lets you connect two usb devices with bluetooth adapters as if they are connected.

The cheap solution though is not wireless. I use a 5m active USB cable.

When I watched the promo video is said you can just send photos wirelessly while taking pictures.

Eye-fi?
Not got one, yet, but from what I understand you could use it to send the jpegs (if you shoot raw+jpeg) to the computer fairly quickly for the client.
