When I am shooting studio portraits tethered to a Macbook Pro, the images transfer slower than I would like them to making the process a bit of a pain. I have stopped doing it but would like to go back to using the bigger screen if it's possible to speed up the process.
I am using USB cable from 5D MkII to the computer with Lightroom 5. Is there a way to make things faster and smoother? Would an SSD drive make a difference here? Does it make a difference if I'm using an external hard drive instead of the laptop hard drive?
