    Is there such a set up where you could send your images from your digital
    camera to a projector so that each time you took a picture, the image would
    be displayed on a wall or screen? I can do this with a USB cable from my
    camera to my laptop, but was wondering if I could do the same with a
    projector and be wireless.

    My idea would be that as your shooting at a party lets say, the subjects
    picture could be shown on the wall for everyone to see. The photographer
    could just walk around shooting candids and everyone could see the images
    after each shot.

    I think you'd have to do it via a pc if you want wireless, but canon have a
    kit for that for the 20d and above

    Is there such a set up where you could send your images from your digital
    Alternatively have photographer carry PDA or tablet PC with USB connector to
    camera, and transmit pics to the big PC.

    Top posting free idea for Nikon et al:

    You can buy a WiFi card for a PDA that slips into the SD memory card slot.
    My Palm knows what to do with it.

    It would be nice if I could slip that into my D50, and, say use a PC/USB
    connection for configuration, then unhook and have the D50 logged into a
    hotspot (nearby PC) and write images to the effectively unlimited remote
    file system.

    Batteries would be an issue, but that has solutions of its own.

    Small matter of firmware programming and price/point product confusion :)

    some hi end cameras have built in bluetooth to signal the images over to a
    laptop, and from there just plug in a digital projector to the laptop as the
    second monitor. My kodak has a firewire cable, but I've never used it.

    and of course you could 'sneakernet' your CF cards to an assistant to load
    them to the harddrive and then show.

    When I went to some dog walkathon there was a guy set up with a tent doing
    portraits of pets and their owners, he'd shoot a few on a small card, open
    the camera and hand it to his assistant who would pop it into the laptop to
    show and print.
