how do you shoot tethered to a PC? Is special software needed, or do you just run the firewire to the pc and run photoshop? I am hoping that I shoot and the image apperas on-screen without having to work the PC.

Depends on the camera. I use a Canon 20D and it came with software so you could shoot tethered. I suspect that many of the DSLRs come with this sort of software. Breezesys also has a pro version of a tethered software product for the Canon 10D and 20D. You do have to have special software for any camera used. Both USB and Firewire are possible, depending on the software.

Cheers,
rfs

you will need software to run on your computer. most of the camera manufacturers have software to drive the connection and I believe that Phase One will also connect certain cameras. And yes, it connects through a firewire, a USB, or wireless depending on the camera.

I shoot tethered in the studio 99% of the time. For the most part a 15' cable is all that's supported without an extender hub. But they are inexpensive and work well to give you about 30' all total.
