"LAP TOP HOOK UP"


DUNCANNON, US
          

I am president of a local camera club and periodically project projects onto a screen through a laptop & digital projector.

How can I connect my D7100 to this combination and show images matching what is displayed on my D7100 LCD screen?

Thank you, DICK

You can hook the camera up to the laptop and project straight up

Use Nikon Capture Pro and a USB cable

The Eye-Fi card works well. Just record small basic JPEG images on your Eye-Fi card and it will wirelessly transmit the image via wi-fi to your laptop.

Hi Dick,
It sounds to me that you want to show your audience exactly what's on the rear LCD of your camera - perhaps as part of a tutorial of some sort. If that is so, why not simply connect the HDMI output of the camera to an HDMI input on the projector (assuming that it has one, of course)?

If you want to show the laptop screen, just switch to an alternate input on the projector.

Pete

This is correct.

John-Erik,
Obviously, I understand your words, but don't understand what you're SAYING.

Are you telling me that my interpretation of the OP's question is accurate? If not, then will you please elucidate for us? Thanks.

Pete

Pete,
You are correct in what I want to do. Thank you for your reply. I do not want to spend a lot of the club's money and this sounds "economical". I am not electronic or computer "intelligent" - what are the chances of the projector back feeding into my new D7100 and hurting it?
Thanks again, Dick

Hello again,
Unless the projector or camera body is suffering from an EXCEPTIONALLY "WEIRD" fault - ZERO!

HDMI electrical specifications are very well defined. You have no reason to fear any bad effects.

Pete
