Hi guys, I have decided to get a canon XTI. I considered similar cameras from sony nikon and even canons G9 and decided that the XTI was right for me. I will be using this camera for work. I am a freelance designer and I often find myself taking product shots for material that I design for my clients. Of all of the cameras withing my budget ($500) that I reseached the XTI was the only one that had the ability to take pictures directly from my mac. This might be very useful as I do most of my shots in my home studio. Could anyone tell how good or bad canon's remote software works on a mac (leopard)? My second choice was a nikon d40x but it seems to lack this functionality. Could anyone confirm wether or not the nikons offer something similar? Thanks for your repliess.
