"Exellent additon"on by jimblock
Pros tiny adapter, easy transfers
Cons can't instantly view on TV screen
Summary The Apple iPod camera connector is the primary reason that I upgraded from an older 5 GB iPod to a new 30 GB iPod photo. I keep a 1 GB card in my Olympus E-1 Digital SLR, and usually that is enough for a day's shooting. However, on vacation, or other busy days, I want to be able to unload the card in the field and continue shooting. The iPod photo with the camera connector is perfect for this.
My camera has both USB 2.0 and Firewire outputs so transfers are quick enough, especially since I usually will transfer at night. I find viewing the pictures on the screen instantly to be good, although being able to show them on a TV screen would be better. (You have to transfer the photos to the computer and then reimport to do the TV slideshow.) However, the iPod captures the full images, has plenty of room, and quickly transfers them to the computer at home.
All in all, a very useful addition for only $29.
Pros it's white
Cons way too slow
Summary Maybe my math is wrong here... with a D70 it transfers 0.4MB/sec: so, to upload a 2GB card would take...83 hours? Ok, probably not fair to blame this on the ipod, since the D70 is stuck with USB 1.1, but unless your camera has USB 2.0, this is worthless.
Pros Small size, intelligent commands on iPod, immediate viewing available
Cons Transfer speed--but this is not a major problem
Summary Just what was needed--a small, simple connection with the ability to view photos on the iPod immediately. Incredible improvement in size over other vendor's items that have been on the market for more than a year.
Pros Apple product, Seamless introgration, small,
Cons Hardive spins during transfer and dives battery down
Summary It's great if you only own one memory card or you let one at home well on a trip. If you really want you you can even charge your old shuffle... I've used it on trips and music festivals.. don't for get to pask your charger though!!!
Pros nice idea if it worked
Cons not working for me
Summary So, I bought this connector for my video ipod knowing my camera was not compatible, but after reading a bunch of reviews, it seemed like the way around this was to use a card reader, so I bought a USB 2.0 card reader for SD cards (IOGEAR GFR202SD), but it is NOT working either... why do some card readers work and not others??? which card readers work?
