D70s transfer of photos to pc

Hannes Pieterse , Feb 19, 2009; 08:02 a.m.

I am new to studio photography and would like to know the following:
How do I connect my D70s to a pc to enable me to take photos and be able to display the photos on the pc screen? If I use the supplied USB cable and connect that to the pc, the camera automatically goes into a "PC" state - which is normally used to transfer photos after the photoshoot.
I would most probably need another type of cable, (and / or software)? but do not know where to start.
 
regards
Hannes

You need to pay for Nikon's Camera control. It will not display the view live but it will download any shot taken directly to the PC. Newer camera's like the D300 can view the live view on the PC. same cable.

Yes, Nikon's Camera Control Pro software will work, or you can try Bibble Pro from Bibble Labs. Both pieces of software support tethered shooting, and you can download each for a 30 day free trial to see if they'll do what you want.

Or you use the freeware camera control from DIY http://www.diyphotobits.com/?cchd
