I am totally blank on this subject!
I might get to shoot a birthday in June and some have been wondering if it is possible to "stream" photos directly on to the projector/pc?
To clarify, I want to: Show photos as I take them directly on to the projector/pc, wireless?
Any solutions for this? Plan B is to take 10-15 photos on memory card 1, transfer them on to the pc and projector, take a new memory card and take 10-15 photos and repeat.
I use a Canon 5D Mark II.
The only way that worked for me to flawlessly stream photos to a big screen or projector (with a camera that takes only CF card) was:STEP 1:
Connect the DLSR to a small laptop (I've used a 11 inch LG laptop) through the USB cable (that comes with every Canon DSLR) and hang the Laptop to my Tripod.
if I am shooting hand held, I used a small camera bag, (hung around my shoulder) to keep the laptop STEP 2:
I use Canon EOS Utility (free software that comes with every Canon DSLR) or Lightroom to save the photos on to the laptop as I take the photos.STEP: 3
I than wirelessly stream those photos to an Apple TV which is connected to a TV or a projector.
This is done with my Apple TV and laptop connected to the same WiFi network (I use a portable device called MiFi, which runs on regular AAA batteries ... see the attached pic ... it is a neat little powerful device, it is shorter than my index finger, yet it can provide WFi connectivity to 5 devices simultaneously).STEP 4:
Once everything is working perfectly, (in order to close the laptop screen and still get the software to work), I select "Do nothing" in my laptop's "Power Settings", "when I close the lid" (see the attached screen shot).
I know this may not be what you are looking at, but this is the only way I could stream my photos flawlessly as I was taking them ... I used this method on several occasions with my Canon 7D (which also has only a CF card slot like the 5D MK II) ... I've used it at home for several family birthdays and thrice at my office during workshops for our rig crew ... it never failed me once.
