    Hello any and all photography enthusiasts/professionals. I am looking for an app that I can use to give me either a live preview or a review of pictures taken by my Nikon DSLR. Mac OS X's Image Capture app can show a window with thumbnails of images as they come in from the camera (connected via USB), but they are thumbnails only.

    Anyone know of an app that will show a full screen image, or at least a larger-than-thumbnail preview of images when the camera is up? I just want to see what is comin out of the camera at a quick glance while shooting.

    lightroom - shooting tethered

    you could try the eyefi card - eyefi software route as well, but its quite buggy

    Aperture 3 also allows setting up a tethered setup.

    Thanks for the tips. Two follow up questions. Not that aperture is that pricey anymore, but anyone know of a cheaper/standalone utility that would do just what I am interested in? Anyone know if the camera connection kit on the iPad would allow this for the iPad?

    Did your camera ship with software? If it was a Canon the included utilities allow exactly what you want...
