Hello,
Last week I shot a job (200 pix) with my Panasonic FZ35. All photos will be fairly small when printed. It would have been a great help if I could have viewed live so I could see the small adjustments I was making in front of the camera.
Camera has a USB connection and a HDMI connector.
What will I need to do as I have suggested?
Thanks all

Hey CT - Coincidentally, I have the exact same camera!

I want to be in front of the camera and moving objects for correct placement and at the same time see my movements on a laptop or some other device as if I were viewing through the camera.

When I get some images posted on the web I'll give you a poke. That little camera did a fantastic job.

Yep, look forward to that mate.

Sorry for the late reply, been so busy. School holidays here and we have grandchildren staying, 2 little boys...nuff said?

Anyway, yes you can use the FZ35 for live viewing. But you need a little extra hardware, a USB capture device - I have this one here: http://www.spotit.com.au/buy/39128_Lead ... ditor.aspx

As you can see, they are not too expensive.

It has a USB connection on one end and red, white and yellow AV connections on the other. The other cable, from the camera, should have been included in the accessory pack - one end connects to the digital/AV outlet on the side of the camera and the other end has the 3 corresponding color coded AV jacks.

You can also achieve the same thing via HDMI cable, if you have an HDMI input on the monitoring device.

HTH
Cheers...Jim

Here's a page of images. They are low res for faster load times and have not been sharpened.
Thanks for the help.
