Hey there... Ive had my canon for a bout a year.. and i made a horrible mistake.. i didnt read the manual, then threw it away.. since i got my cam, {canon xt} ive gotten an adobe file of the manual. [and ive read it front to back, top to bottom, cover to cover}



the one thing that im stalled on{yes i realize is probably inthe manual, and im just not processing it correctly} is, Is it possible to shoot a picture and have it go directly to my camera, bypassing the cf card. There is a real possibility that I will be doing the school fotos for the military base i live at and would love to know how to use this feature, so i can check the shots automatically, instead of trading the CF card back and forth. I found one program, that costs $95 {and if thats it- awesome} but im just not sure. seems that something like that should work already, but i learned a long tmie ago, that what seems like it should, and what does, are usually 2 separate things... any help is appreciated!

At least two programs for remote capture areon the CD that came with the camera. You can shoot without a card in the camera or have it both ways. You can control the camera using the keyboard. If you loaded all the programs, I think all the ones that supportremote capture operation will automatically come up in a windowsXP pc when you connect the camera to a usb port.

You might want to also get the AC adapter, so you don't have to worry about batteries while you're tethered.

You could try my free solution: http://www.nutty.ca/blog/index.aspx?...ture%20Perfect

It works well with my DRebel, but I've never tested it with the XT. If the XT is anything like the DRebel for remote capabilities, then it should work fine.

Other than that, Breeze Software is the only other remote capturing program that I'm aware of, which is probably one of the best out there, but it costs

Canon includes the Remote Capture utility in their software bundle, you can trip the camera via the USB cableand save to card or directly to computer hard drive.
