The camera does have HDMI and a USB A/V out port. The manual is not too helpful in this regard but it does indicate certain functionality which is not available when shooting tethered to a television or PC monitor - toggling between Servo AF and not, for example. So I assume that it is possible to shoot while connected to an alternative viewing device other than the camera's screen. Have not tried it myself. I don't see any section of the manual dedicated to this, and I did a number of word searches through the pdf version trying to find anything helpful.
