Monitoring A1 on MacBook Pro 17"

Hi,

I was wondering if anyone out there is using the 17" Macbook Pro to monitor their XH A1?

The regular 17" supports 1680 x 1050, the Hi-Res 17" supports 1920 x 1200.
I figure as I'm updating my laptop soon this could kill two birds with one stone.. does the Canon Console software let you monitor fullscreen?

What other ways are there for using this laptop to monitor?

thanks

Steve

Hi Steve,

I discovered this recently:

I haven't tried it, but it looks like it could be what you're looking for. They have a 14 day demo, so you can try before you buy.

That monitor software works pretty well but it would a lot more useful if you could display at an accurate 1:1 pixel size.. or if it just let you zoom certain areas.
