Belkin Digital Camera Link for iPod (F8E477) - ESP $79.99
Simply connect the Belkin Digital Camera Link to your iPod. Then connect it to your camera with your camera's USB cable. Using software support that is already built into your iPod (with software version 2.1 or later), your pictures transfer quickly and you can begin shooting again. When you return home, just connect your iPod to your computer to retrieve the images. It is like having virtually unlimited storage space for all your photos.
"Our Digital Camera Link gets rid of the need to carry around multiple media cards," explains Joe Jaconi, Senior Business Unit Manager. "Because the device is small and light-the same size as the iPod-it's very convenient for travel."
