    Does any of you have experience with the Pentax *ist DS and iPod Camera
    Connector? According to the Apple webpages the Pentax *ist DS is a
    supported camera, but before coughing up a lot of money I would like to
    check if it really works so well as I like to expect.
    I'm using a PC, is there any extra software that needs buying before I
    can transfer the photos from camera to iPod and later from iPod to PC?
    The apple webpages are not very clear on that.

    I discovered that a 1Gb SD card will take more than 40 minutes to
    download onto the iPod Photo, so it seems to be too slow to be really

    FWIW I download 1GB from a Nikon D50 to the Ipod in about 36 minutes.
    the Ipod 29 bucks buys you a lot of storage without carrying a laptop.
    Go have lunch while it downloads.

  5. If you had a USB 2.0 hi-speed reader, the 1GB card might be much quicker.
    I measured 30MB in 12s, so a 1GB might take around 7 minutes....

    My USB2 reader (Billionton) just took 2' 41" for 1GB

  7. That's more like it! The OP had talked about an hour, IIRC.
