Does anyone know how to use Canon A470 for the following features?

When I plug in the video outlet how do I keep the photo in the monitor at the same time is projected in the screen?
When I take a picture how can I see the picture  -in the screen- without saving it in the camera?

Thanks  :)

Hi:

we are working in a special project where we need that the camera A470 or any other unexpensive camera is able to show at the same time the image in the display plus in the TV set through the outlet A/V.

Is posible take pictures without saved in the SD.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Thats not possible. There is a mechanical switch in the camera, so you have either in-camera display OR A/V out.

And taking pictures without saving.. Just don't put a SD card in. At least my cam shows the review of an image, even when its not saved. If the camera setting is set to "Hold review", it'll stay there until the next shutter press..

Regards

If I'm not mistaken this switch causes Canon's firmware to shut down the LCD. So I think it's possible that the hardware doesn't actually prevent us from turning on the LCD after plugging in an AV cord... maybe CHDK will be able to that one day in the distant future.
