    Could someone tell me if there is a way to hook a Canon Ds Mark II to a
    laptop for remote viewing of the rear monitor display on the camera and/or to
    save to the laptop.

    The EOS Viewer Utility + EOS Capture (the two programs work together) should
    do the job. These programs ship with the camera.
    I suspect that the Breeze Systems program, referenced above, is probably a
    more elegant solution but a 'free' option is available (if you have already
    bought the camera)!

    Or better still, download Canon's Picture Window from the Canon site. It
    works in combination with EOS Capture. When EOS Capture is used with EOS
    Viewer Utility, the images are saved to hdd straight away (plus in the
    camera if you choose), but the images land on your screen as a
    thumbnail. With Canon Picture Window, each time you take an exposure,
    the image comes up on screen filling the window (and is saved, of course).

    I use this all the time with my laptop, so the client gets to see the
    shot as soon as it is taken. I have found it to be especially useful for
    checking the exposure/sharpness of product shots, and with portraits,
    the customers seem to get very excited about seeing their image as soon
    as it is taken. It also gives the customer a chance to let you know if
    you are giving them what they want right away. (We don't always know
    'exactly' what the customer wants).

  6. Firewire cable should do.
