DSLR connect to PlayBook

[ Edited ]

Hi

 

Is there an app available which allows a Playbook to be used as an Viewfinder/Screen for a DSLR (Canon 550D) camera, or another way to do it?

You could try downloading this:

You will need to sideload it, but it may do the trick.

Hello

Do you know of any software/app which could allow me to use my PB as a monitor for my DSLR [canon 60d]? 

 

Trying to get a "live view" off the camera.

 

The software you've referenced is just a remote for the camera.

 

Thanks
