B&N Nook Color, rooted + DSLR Controller App

Works wonders, 4x the screen size, live view, macros, etc.
You need 3 apps, 1 is free (for memory setup)
The DSLR controller app is $8.99 & the one to setup USB host is maybe $1.99
Lighter than a netbook, longer batt life
The App also has macros for Focus stacking (drives AF lenses manually)
and can be set up for much wider bracketing.
I picked up the tablet on Craigslist for $100 & you will need a USB host cable
(real cheap on Ebay).

Don't know why more folks don't do this.
