    Check the software that the camera came with. My Canon camera came with software that allows this. The camera is connected and controlled via the USB cable.

    your D50 comes with a usb cable... that will be fine... alternatively if the laptop is media based, it may have a SD card slot built in.

    i have checked the software that came with the camera (photo project 1.5) and there is no option to control it, only to directly import the shots from the sd card.

    as i want to have a direct preview on the laptop as i am shooting this program will not work as desired. is there some software that will letme do this?

    The software is called Nikon Capture.

    Are there any free programs that can do this? I have a Mac (but have bootcamp on it so I can install XP programs, but I use my Mac for imaging)
