is it possible to link a camera to surface and see whatever you are shooting on the camera on surface instead?

Yup, I am using a Wireless transmitter to transmit shots from my SLR to the surface pro.

One thing to note, just make sure your wireless transmitter is able to connect via infrastructure and not ad hoc mode.

Software wise, if you want every shot taken to auto load on your surface screen, think lightroom can do it.

go Ventincre and do a search...
"chip chip", less than $20. i think the official one goes for $58.
dun have the original 1 to compare, so cannot tell quality.

of course, HDMI Cable, Home Theater Accessories, HDMI Products, Cables, Adapters, Video/Audio Switch, Networking, USB, Firewire, Printer Toner, and more! is even cheaper, but this one still need to pay for shipping and its more for bulk purchase.

If you mean Live feed from a P&S or DSLR, it's only possible if they support TWAIN, which most don't.

The only way is to use a USB HD Webcam which will give you 720p (not sure if 1080p is available) picture. Can try Logitech or MS.

In the past, it's possible if you have a FireWire port & a Videocam that shoots FHD but on Surface, it's not possible.

Thanks game goondu! Initially wanted to get the original HDMI adaptor for my RT at $58, luckily I googled and found out that 3rd party micro HDMI cable works too. Need to look for a wireless keyboard now.

Hi All !

Ive just dumped my asus android tablet to get a surface RT which will be arriving soon. May I check if there are any decent app to use the surface RT as a laptop extended monitor? Previously I use Air Display (https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...rdisplay&hl=en) on my android tablet which works very well. Any similar app for windows ?

TIA !

the RT has hdmi output I think. So not if it supports dual monitor?

not sure if SplashTop released a version for RT?

I think the only way is to get the micro HDMI cable to connect to TV. There's also a micro HDMI to VGA for monitors. Doubt there's an app on Windows Store that functions like Air Display. Welcome to the Surface Club!

Air Display, no. Duplicate or Extended desktop is natively supported by Win RT. All you need is a monitor that supports HDMI.
