Apple vp describes iPod Camera ConnectorAlong with new iPod photo models, Apple yesterday announced the iPod Camera connector, an optional (US)$29 accessory that enables iPod users to connect their digital camera to an iPod to transfer photos. But the company only described the device and did not produce a photo. In Apple+pipes+in+new+iPods/2100-1041_3-5586848-2.html?tag=st.next">an interview with CNet News.com, Apple vice president, Greg Joswiak, described the camera connector as "a small white plastic device, similar in appearance to a small docking station, that has a cable for connecting to the iPod and a USB port for connecting to a camera." It will work with both the new iPod photos and with earlier photo player models, said Joswiak, who also heads Apple's iPod product marketing. "Pictures loaded onto an iPod directly will be able to display immediately on the iPod. But for the photos to be shown on a TV, the iPod Photo will need to be connected to a Mac or PC first."
