Any way to tether with K-X?

I think "tether" is the correct term for it. But say you have a notebook computer right next to the tripod the camera is sitting on. You have a cable going from the camera to the notebook.. When you snap a picture it immediately shows you the picture on the notebook's screen in hi-resolution. The K-X screen is pretty low res and it is hard to see if things are focused to your liking.

If not, how about those eye-fi SDHC cards?

Pk_Tether, huh, that's a pretty cool tool, there.

I have an eye-fi first gen (2 gb). I like it, but the software on Vista gets pictures when it feels like it, and oftentimes not when I want it to. Also, if I get impatient and put the photos in the directory, it still insists on adding it to its collection after I put the Eye-Fi back in the camera.

Just remember to enable auto image save when you use the current version of Pk-tether.
It seems to run more reliably when you have that option turned on.
