The Apple Ipod Camera Connector screams intelligence on the part of Apple, but falls far short. DO NOT think of using this for any real photography purposes or with pictures above 3MP in size. To transfer 1gb Sandisk II ultra CF card takes roughly 45 minutes, and kills almost all your Ipod's battery (not to mention the impact on your cameras battery for that 45 minutes).

Its a great idea, but the ipod battery is not originally engineered to support such a power supply, and does not stand up to heat...

Look elsewhere for a portable harddrive to store pictures, such as Epson P-2000.

I just bought a Sony DSC-T7 and a 30GB iPod Photo in preparation for a trip around the world. This connector is my dream come true! You just plug the connector into the iPod and plus in your camera via USB. The iPod just prompts you to import and takes it from there.

Your photos are imported and converted into a regular thumbnailed iPod photo album that you can browse and view. I was happy to discover that movies are copied over too! You can't view the movies, but at least you can store them. When you're ready, just connect the iPod to a computer via USB and copy over the folders with your original image and video files.

It takes awhile and does require you to run the iPod on its battery (since it occupies the power port). I considered the Epson P-2000, which is faster and has a bigger screen. However the iPod is less expensive, less than half the weight, a smaller form factor, capabable of more storage (30 or 60GB), and a way better music player that I will actually use on a regular basis for more than just temporary photo storage. If I was a photo professional out on shoots I might go with the Epson, but I'm more of an average joe that's just looking for a travel photo solution... and the iPod Photo is perfect for me!

Paired with my DSC-T7, we're talking super-small and ultra-portable. Everything I need for photos and music on this trip I can fit in 2 pockets.

I bought this product to connect my digital rebel xt camera. Although it was not on the approved list of cameras, this item worked fine at transferring pictures. The problem with this product is in the speed of the data transfer. If you are only transferring 100 MB of data then it will only take about 5 minutes to transfer your pictures and should work well for your purposes. The real problem comes for people with Digital SLR cameras who use the raw image format. The Raw and JPEG images will transfer fine to the Ipod, but if you use the JPEG+Raw image setting, on an 8 megapixel camera, each picture will take approximately 11-12 MB. You could easily fill a 1 GB card in a day and want to transfer them to the Ipod and clear your card for the next day on a vacation. The problem is that although the camera is a USB 2.0 - the transfer speeds of the pictures are only about .3 mb a second (well slower than the max of USB 1.0). This takes in the neighborhood of 45-60 minutes to empty a 1 gb card. Since the ipod drive is spinning for an hour straight, it seems to dimish the capacity to about 15-20%. If you tried to empty a 2 GB card, I'm not even sure it could handle that. In addition, the camera connector occupies the same space as the bottom connector so I have been unable to find a way to charge and transfer at the same time. The camera also suffers a drain when on continuously for 45-60 minutes.
I have used the digital drives with the hard drives and built in compactflash reader and they copy 1 GB of pictures in roughly 10 minutes depending on the speed of the card used. I thought I would be able to use the Ipod to store my pictures while on vacation, but the transfer speeds are just too slow to make that feasible with a Digital SLR.

If you're like most people who are leery of being on a vacation and losing your photos - even if you have a massive media card in your camera - it's a little more re-assuring to be able to have a backup in case anything happens.

The ipod is a great backup choice as its small form not only has music, contacts, calendar and text notes - you can now load, view and backup your photos on it.

Like with most every Apple product product, it's amazingly easy. There is NO software to load! You turn on your ipod, you plug in the connector, connect it to your camera, turn on your camera and it AUTOMATICALLY loads a window that reads IMPORT or CANCEL. After you select IMPORT, it does the rest of the work. Afterwards you have a tiny thumbnail index of this import. Using the scroll wheel, you can view each photo in the ipod window. There's even an option to delete any photos if you choose. And you're done!

You can set up a slideshow, link it with a song - select transitions and you have a recap of your day right then & there!

You can also get the optional Apple video out dock or cables and view it on the TV (if you're on vacation) right in the hotel room or via your camcorder with "soundtrack." Pretty cool.

I would dock it half a star as it does seem to use up more battery power than just listening to music but unless you are absolutely out in the wilderness, personally I'd like a backup of my photos and am willing to trade a quick recharge of my ipod. (You can also buy 3rd party battery powered add-ons - I have the Belkin one - works nicely though bulky).

The only other thing is the connector is wider than normal.
