Nope, the computer only sees what the camera shot.
Why would that be handy if the computer saw it first? A lot of cameras have Live View, which is like what the point & shoot cameras have. But I don't ever use it except when I'm holding the camera above my head.
Like what David says;
Live shot on the monitor gives a better display then the small lcd screen on the camera .
I am not a pro - you guys are But I would think on the monitor ""larger pic"" you can see maybe you need a different aperture setting , F-Stop , more lighting , yada yada before you take the shot ? ?
i wanted to get Aperture 2, but for some reason my Aperture 1 is not upgradeable to 2 and the full price is $199 and the education price is $179. seems silly to buy the education price and not be eligible for $100 upgrades such that i'd pay $358 for version 2 and then version 3 education price, yet i'd only pay $299 to buy the full version 2 and then get version 3 as an upgrade. not sure that makes sense, but i currently have version 1 and i gave up on it and went back to iPhoto. i think i'll wait for version 3 of Aperture now since 2 has been out since 2008. i'll probably be able to get version 3 even a bit cheaper on Amazon for the full version at that point. ah well.
they sell an upgrade to ver. 2, but you have to have version 1 to qualify and it only works for the regular version (it's $99 in the Apple Store to upgrade). Apple just doesn't allow education prices to upgrade to another education price. and the education price is only $20 less than the full price. i know there seemed to be a reason for this and it probably makes sense, but not moving forward from version 2 to 3. so when i say upgrading to the full version, i realize i'd have to buy the full version (non upgrade) to get into that rotation.
Adobe CS web premium is priced at $1699 regular. education price is $599 (no upgrade option). upgrade from the $1699 version is $599.
in this case, it makes sense for me to buy the education version as my whole cost is the same as the upgrade cost for commercial users. when i upgrade to CS4 (i am on 3) it'll cost me $599, which is the same as a regular business user upgrading from 3 to 4. that makes sense to me. my initial cost is just cheaper and Adobe benefits because i push my university to buy this product and get some students to do so as well -- that's potentially new customers buying the $1699 version down the road so Adobe feels comfortable offering this promotion to get their product into regular work cycles of young adults.
i am not sure why Apple isn't currently doing a cheaper education price to be more similar to Adobe products and more similar to the upgrade price for the regular version ($99), but it must not be as simple as it seems. i have no clue what i paid for the education price versus what you paid for Aperture 1 (i think there was a refund at one point because it was too expensive or something like that so my memory is all sloshed up). i just know that if the education price is going to be only $20 less than the full price then there is absolutely no reason to buy the education version 2 from my perspective and not just pay $20 more to get into the cheaper upgrade rotation for the regular product. people who have bought the education version have probably still bought 1 and 2 for less than the regular commercial editions (and i don't know that this is true, but it must be true); however, that certainly won't be true by version 3. i suspect that Apple will either have to allow the education price to be upgraded for the same amount as the typical upgrade ($99) or they should just drop the education distinction on this product.
