Interesting feature of the Canon Powershot camera.

This observation probably applies to most cameras that are newer DSLR and HiDEF digital video cameras.

I have started to get used to my new Canon Powershot SX530 and found that it has two ports built into it. I was a little surprised that neither was a USB computer connection. Both ports are A/V outputs.

One is HDMI, the other connection I am not presently familiar with.

What this allows for is to connect an external screen to the camera. Like an Apple iPhone or better yet the large iPad because now you can use the iPad in place of the camera LCD screen to compose and manage the scene you are going to shoot still pictures or video with. A larger screen means you will be able to adjust focus and lighting before shooting and get the best image acquisition possible.

If you have an iPad, make the connection and use the pad as your viewscreen.

Additionally, you can load a Lightroom application into the pad, and use the camera, the iPad, and Lightroom in live, real-time situations at the same time to compose, color adjust, and get incredibly sharp focus as well as manipulate the scene all before shooting it.

This will raise the quality of your photos.
