    I did a video on YouTube on using the Canon EOS Utility to turn your laptop into a secondary monitor for your Canon DSLR. Works great with netbooks too, just need to do my workaround.

    Hard to tell but I believe it will give you a full HD resolution (just not 30fps). The EOS utility doesn't utilize the full window for the video so even when you maximize your screen on a 1280x800 laptop screen you are probably only getting 500 or 600 in height. I can see that its not limited to that resolution though when I manually stretch the window. I have to try on a monitor that is capable of higher resolutions.

    One of the really nice features of the software, however, is that you can maginfy 5x or 10x and even that gets displayed on the computer (wether you maginify right on your camera or maginify right in hte software.) It actually pops up as a seperate window.

    If you haven't tried this hookup I definitely recommend trying it..it will make you look at using this camera in a studio or controlled production environment in a whole different light.

    I was just using this the other day during a corporate video shoot. The best part was having the laptop facing my client from the marketing firm and allowing them to both setup the background as well as monitor the script during the shoot. It was a huge asset and not one I could have had from a standard monitor.

    Here's some BTS footage from the corporate shoot: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3aoZ4Bd7Uzo

    Great post.... I wonder if it could work on a high end touchscreen tablet?

    Something like that would be great.

    awesome video. i will definitely have to use this in the future. does it work with a macbook pro? if so, may I ask what wires I would need to do it?

    I hate this minidisplay port.
