I have around
Problem with that link is they are all out of my price range. But thanks anyway.
Depends on the tablet and on the camera. The only tablet I have experience with is the Apple iPad. With the iPad you can use the camera connection kit to import photos ou have already taken but it does not allow for live viewing or tethered shooting, and Apple has not opened this to allow developers to utilize it. There is however a device that will connect to your camera that creates its own WiFi hotspot and allows u to fully control the camera via the iPad
Shamelessly taken from another forum.
In this shot: A Manfrotto 410 Junior Geared head supports an Adorama focusing Rail which supports the Canon 5DMKII wearing a Sigma 180mm f/3.5 EX DG IF HSM APO macro lens.
A Manfrotto Superclamp holds a Manfrotto Magic Arm to my Manfrotto 3205GN3 Tracker Tripod, and the other end of it holds a Tether Tools Wallee which holds onto my Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1" 32GB tablet.
The tablet is connected to the camera via USB, and the camera is controlled from the tablet using the DSLR Controller app.
The ASUS MeMO Pad Smart 10.1 may be in your price range? It has a standard usb port and what you get for the price seems good.

Galaxy is good and less pricey, for sure but I wouldn't trade the functionality of an iPad for it.
With iPad, your DLSR pictures appear in your i-device in just seconds. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uehF41TICb4
Very impressive! Imagine being able to check your photos as soon as you take it on your iPad without even wires connecting to it.
I don't know much about linking up to your camera but in terms of a decently priced tablet I would look at the Nexus 7. I bought my daughter one for Xmas and she loves it, I loved it so much I went out and bought the Nexus 4 as my phone https://play.google.com/store/devices/details?id=nexus_7_32gb_hspa&feature=device-featured#?t=W251bGwsMSwxLDIwMiwibnVsbC13ZWJfaG9tZV81MDAwMDA1X25leHVzVUtfZGV2aWNlc19HQl9fNTAwMDAwNV9uZXh1c1VLXzJfcHJvbW9fMTM3MDg3NDEyMDI3MCJd
I would recomment one of those google tablets I saw in HMV a few weeks back, I'll go and check for the model
be right back
Couldn't find the one I was looking for to recommend, (just remember they were

Well in the end I bought a samsung galaxy tab 2 10.1. It was pushing my budget but it felt a lot nicer in my hands then any other I tried. I have managed to get a converter so I can use usb on it too which is a bonus.
Thanks for all your input guys.
