  1. I am looking at your image of the cradle with camera my idea is to expend this system to have the preview image coming out of the camera as it would to a lcd but going directly to a large screen computer, say imac where focus and selection and zoom can be controlled remotely, and the picture saved instantaneously to the computer… in your picture i see the photographer grappling with the camera and trying to look through the viewfinder to take the picture, this is not good… I suppose someone has already invented just such a remote controlled system? I am very interested in high resolution digital images
    here is my web site
    I have a huge project in mind and am looking for solutions.
