Connecting My K5 to a TV or PC

Hi All. I've been elected to take staff pictures (about 520 People) at work and I want to be able to connect my K5 to my PC or a small TV while I shoot the pictures and have everyone view them on the PC or TV after the shot is taken. Is there any way this can be done? I'm not sure if I'm asking the question the right way or not but I want to be able to view the photo right after the shot is taken without having to attach a cable to the camera each time I take a shot. Is this possible.

HDMI Out, if you have a TV with HDMI in then you can.

Better to use PKtether and it will pop the photo up on your PC directly.

Ok I've hooked up the HDMI cable between my camera and laptop and started PK Tether and nothing happens. I've shot a few pictures and they do appear on screen. I've also updated the firmware on the camera as well. Any suggestions?

The HDMI cable only connects to the TV, if you want to use tethering you must connect the camera to the computer with the supplied USB cable.

Hope this helps!
