Tech Tip: Photo Viewing via HDMI

If you want to share your images and movies by displaying them directly on an HD television, you can connect the two using the camera’s HDMI port. To make this process easier, in the camera menu select ‘Control over HDMI’ and enable it. With this done, you will be able to control the camera using the television remote control rather than having to reach for the camera every time you want to change a picture.

Since you don’t have to download the images to your laptop you save a little time too. I like to sit back and relax with a nice glass of wine as I review the assignment pics over our 65″ flat screen. This system makes my editing choices easier due to giant size of the images on the screen that show the details magnified.

I know most of the professional versions of Canon Cameras have the HDMI ports under the rubber covers along the side of the camera, like the picture above.
