    I have a client that wants me to have some way of having the files show up on a computer while I'm shooting so he can see what they are looking like as they are shot.

    I know that I can get the Nikon WT-4a wireless transmitter. My question is, are there any other options?

    Also when it transmits onto the computer, is there anyway of just having a low res jpeg transmitted just for viewing purposes, because I feel sending Raw images from a D3X would take at least 5 seconds each.

    Has anyone done this? I know it would be very helpful for the future, so I have no problem making the investment as long as it does what it should and can just shoot jpegs over while the raw images get stored on the CF card.

    Any information / experiences with this would be awesome!

    Thanks guys :)

    Why two threads?

    How far away from the computer will you be working?

    You want a backlit, low quality rear projection screen for a client to view proofs on?

    I want some of what you're smoking :)
