tethering question(s)

I have an Amazon tablet, and a little Microsoft pc/tablet, (the heck if I can find what the thing is actually called, I can't find it anywhere on the device and of course, we don't have the box anymore).

Do you think I could tether my camera, (for example, when doing product photography) to the PC/Tablet?

No, I do not have a laptop.

I use Adobe Lr and Ps (online subscription).

I have Canon camera's.

I don't want to edit on the little pc/tablet,, but it sure be nice to preview using a larger screen than the back of the camera

TIA!!!!

stream live to a monitor via hdmi much faster than a tethered computer screen.

Do your cameras have wifi? That's what I use with my tablet.

Re: tethering question(s)

With the Windows PC, you should be able to do USB. If your camera has wireless, that's also an option. For the Android tablet, your only option is wireless since I don't think that tablet supports OTG for USB. That's assuming you're using Canon with wireless, or another camera that has a dedicated Android application.
