The ideal tool for professional photographers and people on vacation, Belkin's new Media Reader for iPod is the first third party iPod photo storage accessory. The Belkin Media Reader for iPod connects easily though iPod's dock connector and supports the five most common memory card formats -- CompactFlash, SmartMedia, Memory Stick, SD and MMC.
iPod's new photo storage feature allows users to use a Belkin Media Reader to import, store and backup over 20,000 digital photos from a 3 megapixel camera onto a 40GB iPod and take them anywhere. This frees up valuable camera and memory card storage space so users can continue to take pictures without the hassle and expense of buying and carrying multiple memory cards. Once the iPod is connected to a Mac or Windows PC, the digital photos are easily transferred to a user's computer and photo editing software.
With Mac OS X, iPhoto will automatically recognize the iPod as a media storage device and prompt users to transfer their photos into the iPhoto library -- just as if it were a camera, allowing users to erase the photos after transfer if desired.
