    You can tether your camera to a laptop, yes! The canon website should help with this. Nikon certainly offer software to allow this to be done, and you can control the camera from the computer as well. If Nikon can do it, you can be assured Canon offer something similar

    Constructive Critique of my photographs is always appreciated
    Nikon, etc!

    JSP, install the software that came with the camera.

    EOS Utility allows just this sort of thing, connect to the latop via usb, open EOS utility and bob's your uncle, your on your way.
    You can control the camera settings from the computer if you want also.
