Thread: iPOD - images storage?

  1. #1

    Default iPOD - images storage?

    Hi,
    I travel occasionally and I am exploring various options with regard to images storage.

    Can anyone advise if iPOD is an option let alone a good one? Is there any cable to transfer photos from a DSLR to the iPOD?

    Can it read RAW?

    Unless iPod can act as USB hub I don't see a chance to connect a camera (or card reader) directly to iPod. You will need a device acting as USB hub (laptop, computer etc.). And hopefully iPod software will not consider your RAW files as "unauthorized application"
    Get more memory cards, that would be the safest bet from my point of view. No batteries are needed and physically it's quite robust (especially CF). There are a few devices to upload pictures from cards to HDD but battery life is limited.

    Yes. From apple themselves.

    May not work with RAW.

    And no, it's not a very good one. This one is not a "mainstream" thing. Many things can happen. Corrupt, failure, etc etc.

    Btw, its iPod

    I used to use a camera connector (not sure of the official term) to transfer pix from my camera to my video ipod. However, somehow recently when i installed the later version of itunes, and i synch it, it doesn't recognise the camera connector anymore. I've checked with Apple, and they say they are not supporting the camera connector anymore, and have totally stopped sales of the camera connector. My camera connector's as good as useless now. Goes to show how reliable/faithful Apple are with regards to its upgrades.

    I was scouting around for a replacement. Something like a hdd with in-built card-reader. (Without the screen for viewing the pix) I've found some but they have the inbuilt screen too, which pushed the price to around $500. That's makes it more worthwhile for me just to get a ultra-portable laptop!

    I'm sure there's some in the market. Anyone knows of one that's good, cheap and reliable? :-)

    Incidentally, if someone have a way of making the camera connector work... or have some good ways of transferring files for storage on a trip... pls do let me know! :-) It'll be greatly appreciated.

    It's horrendously slow.... You'll be better off bringing a dedicated photo databank.
