Product Description

iPod photo. Love what iPod did for music? See what it can do for photos. Instantly view and share slideshows set to music anywhere - on your iPod photo or on a TV. An incredible combination of storage and portability. The size of a deck of cards, iPod photo packs a color screen, up to 14 hours of battery life, a 40 GB hard drive for holding up to 10,000 songs, 25,000 photos, or any combination in between.

From the Manufacturer

From the Manufacturer A delight for the ears. A feast for the eyes. Though it's no bigger than a pack of playing cards and weighs in at just over 6 ounces, iPod photo delivers a one-two sensory punch, letting you carry an entire library of your favorite music (up to 10,000 songs) or enough photos (as many as 25,000) to fill nearly 200 slide trays or cover nearly 5,000 square feet of wall space. Got a really big den?

iPod photo displays 25 full-color thumbnails at a time, which you can scroll through the same way you scroll through song titles.

The new iPod photo features a razor-sharp LCD display that lets you see your photos in vivid color--65,536 colors, to be exact. And with its built-in backlighting, you'll be able to admire those photos indoors or out.

Take Your Photos for a Spin
Like its famous siblings, iPod photo features the touch-sensitive Apple Click Wheel that's the envy of the industry. You'll use it to navigate iPod photo's new menu. Now in living color, it's easier to read than ever. That's thanks in part to the clarity of the display--it offers a resolution of 220 by 176 pixels resolution--and in part to the new Myriad typeface. Spin the wheel to Music, and you can scroll effortlessly through dozens of playlists, hundreds of albums, or thousand of songs.

Or you can highlight photos. iPod photo displays 25 full-color thumbnails at a time. And you can scroll through them the same way you scroll through song titles--quickly. Just spin the wheel to see more. And when you see a photo you'd like displayed all by its lonesome, just click the center button and voilà! No one will have to say "cheese" as long as you have iPod photo around. Whether you're listening to tunes or checking out photos, you're sure to be all smiles.

Get Brownie Points for Sharing
If you'd like everyone else to smile right along with you, iPod photo makes it easy. Sure, you could let them take the Click Wheel for a spin themselves, but here's a way to get extra points for style. Use the included AV cable to connect iPod photo to a projector or TV. You can mesmerize friends and family with a glorious multimedia experience, offering them a breathtaking slideshow accompanied by the music you already have on your iPod photo. Of course, you get to choose the songs, albums, or playlists. And talk about smart--iPod photo optimizes your photos to fit on a standard (4:3) or widescreen (16:9) TV.

iTunes 4.7: Your Photo Passport
Wondering how you're going to get all your digital photographs into iPod photo? iTunes 4.7. The new version lets you import your images directly into iPod photo from a folder on the hard drive of your Mac or PC. Spent time organizing your photos using iPhoto on a Mac or either Adobe Photoshop Album 2.0 or Adobe Photoshop Elements 3.0 on a PC? iTunes 4.7 rewards your diligence by importing the albums you've created in iPhoto or the collections you've created in Album or Elements. You'll be able to choose them from the Photos menu on iPod photo.

Wait, there's more. iPod photo features even more robust autosync capabilities. Now, in addition to offering the industry's best music syncing, iTunes offers stellar photo syncing as well. Update your photo collection by adding images or creating new albums, and the next time you connect iPod photo to your Mac or PC using the included FireWire or USB 2.0 cables, iTunes 4.7 will automatically synchronize your photo collection.

And did we mention that iTunes 4.7 also autosyncs album art? It's true. The album art downloaded when you purchase music from the iTunes Music Store is transferred to iPod photo along with the music. So while iPod photo plays your tunes, you can enjoy the album art--in color, of course--on the Now Playing screen.

Enjoy Improved Battery Life
Whether you're on a transcontinental flight or an extra-long hike, if you plan to listen to music for hours and hours, iPod photo has you covered. Fully charged, it lets you enjoy up to 15 hours of continuous music or up to 5 hours of continuous slideshows with music. Use the iPod photo dock or FireWire or USB 2.0 cables to quickly charge the batteries.
