connected to your laptop, and be remotely controlled? I don't know, but I doubt it. You should check your manual.
Can A camera be connected to a computer, and be remotely controlled? Yes. I'm pretty sure the Canon 20D can do this, but it's been awhile since I played with that part of the software. There are also other cameras which can do this, but they're probably all on the expensive side.
Does anyone know if it is possible to connect a digital camera to a laptop and see on the laptop what the camera is seeing, and then capture that image to the laptop.
I need to mount the camera on top of a 30 to 40 foot pole, see what the camera is seeing and capture a few shots. I then must move everything to several other locations to shoot a few more shots.
I am on a very limited budget and need to do this (if possible) inexpensively.
I presently have a laptop running Windows ME and an Olympus Camedia D-540 Zoom camera.
I am not overly computer literate or real camera knowledgeable.
Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.
Thank in advance Bill F.
