    My Dad bought a Canon 450d and filled up a few gigs of space with photos from a trip to China a few weeks back, and is looking for a way to show off the results.

    My first thought was to buy him a generic external dvd writer so he can put them on to DVD using iPhoto/iDvd as a slideshow type thing. He has an old G4 Mac Mini.

    Alternately, he has a Wii as well, which supposedly can view photos using it's sdcard reader, but no luck with this so far apparently - is there something about the way the 450d stores images? Same thing happened when I tried to connect his camera directly to my PS3 - nothing, basically.

    So, is the DVD burner the best way to go about this, or are there any alternatives?

    x2 on ATV, I have one, it works great. Alternatively, you could just get a cable to hook your computer up to the tv.

    How is people with PCs supposed to look at their photos with the AppleTV?

    OK. Photoshop Album or Elements manual sync. Hmm...

    +1 on AppleTV. Photo viewing is one of it's most understated features.

    Use this. Connect mini to TV. Enjoy photos.

    You don't need to spend several hundred dollars on an ATV.

    I thought the 450d came with a video out cable. just connect that to the camera and the composite connection (yellow connector) on the TV and job done. Doesn't need to be a HD connection to view the pictures.
