    Hi all, first time here.

    I'm using a Canon camera (Rebel T4i) and it has a mini-HDMI out port, and a AV out port; Is there any way that I could use my Surface Rt tablet as monitor for my camera?

    Thanks

    Will have to get a SD card adaptor/reader and use the USB port

    Welcome cartouche. Unfortunately as stated the Surface RT does not have video input ports.

    I believe the OP meant tethered shooting like what we do with Nikon and Camera Control Pro. Don't worry cartouche, I can't do it also with my D800, until someone makes the software available in RT.

    Hopefully that is a possibility in the future. The OP did mention the camera's HDMI and AV outs (presumably to feed into the Surface?). As far as I know the Surface can't accept HDMI input and it doesn't have AV input so that isn't an option. I suppose a USB cable connection is possible using an AV port or HDMI usb dongle of some sort.

    Otherwise I think to do that you would need a direct USB connection to the camera and for an app to facilitate the communication as you said.

    Exactly... or WiFi.

    Ideally yes. I didn't see that spec on the camera though so unless they have a dongle for it, it looks like no wifi in this case :(

    So I understand there is an Android app that does that, right?

    I was surprised of how well the player was reading my video clips using my USB key with a Extreme Card in it.
    Not too much of a quantum leap to imagine plug in sd card hard wired to the camera output.
