Join Derrick Story for an in-depth discussion in this video Using tethered shooting, part of Aperture 2 Essential Training.
A new feature that Apple added with Aperture 2.0 is the ability to tether a camera to your computer…and actually see the pictures up here in Aperture as you're shooting.…This is pretty cool. Now it doesn't work with all cameras, but fortunately, Apple has published a page,…that give us a pretty good idea of what cameras work and what cameras don't.…I am going to show you the URL right up here,…it's a knowledge document right here it's support.apple.com/kb/ht1085 and if you go there,…you will get some tips on Tethered shooting and it will list the Canon…and Nikon cameras and how they connect to the computer?…So, for instance with some Canon cameras, you use the USB interface…and with others, use the FireWire so on and so forth.…
Now at the bottom of this document it will tell you, the cameras from vendors other than Canon…and Nikon, may work if they are set to use PTP.…This also true for cameras made by these manufacturers.…For example I am going to show you how this works with a Canon G9, which isn't in this list right now.…

Q: Are there a way to increase the font size in Aperture?
A: Not in Aperture itself, but you can use the zoom feature built into your operating system. (Aperture is a Mac-only program, by the way.) Go to the Apple menu and open System Preferences. Choose Universal Access. Turn on Zoom under the Seeing tab. Then, in any application, you can press Shift+Cmd+Plus to zoom in and Shift+Cmd+Minus to zoom out.
We advise you do not lower the screen resolution unless it's absolutely necessary, as that approach tends to make images softer than they really are. But if your sight is very poor, the tradeoff might be worth it.
