sorry if the title makes no sense!
Is there anyway that I can plug my D200 into my laptop and view what I see through the viewfinder in realtime on my laptop. Is there software available that allows me to do this. I seem to remember it being done in a studio I visited once.
Before someone suggests it, I'm not really after one of those zigiview things.
Awaiting your replies.

Nikon Capture Control...
Mike, thanks for that, is that the same as Capture 4, NX etc. I googled Nikon Capture Control and couldnt find any exact references
It's my understanding that you need to source a copy of Capture v4 - the version before 'NX' Marc. See the last item under 'Main Features' in the link.
I have tried it but don't use it myself. Hopefully someone more knowledgeable that I will pitch in here and clarify things for you...
As the D200 has an optical viewfinder I would be very surprised if this were possible
The sensor only becomes live and able to produce an electronic file when the shutter is open and the viewfinder closed.
The version of Capture 4 linked will allow you to "control" the camera, ie fire the shutter etc but not see what the camera sees
To my knowledge you would have to wait till the new D300 comes out to do this with a Nikon, but as Mike suggests it is posible to have the camera connected to a lap top and view the pictures just after it has taken them.
Good point Dave. Like I say, I don't use it...
It seems we are getting closer to a professional form of live-view in dSLR's
