can i get live view with a canon 500d

Hi

Im very new at this. I have upgraded my OS to 10.6.8. Is it possible to get live view with my canon 500d?

Can i use a USB cable or do i need to get a HDMI cable?

Currently this is only possible using HDMI and a capture card. The 550D will always display a rectangle in the video though, as far as I know.

ok thank you!

I have a Mac Mini running Lion (10.7.2) and a Canon T2i. It will recognize the camera, but do I not get the preview window? Anyone know what mode I am supposed to be in. PTP mode, what is that?
