New iPod photo models

Apple today updated its lineup by introducing a new slim 30GB model, holding up to 7,500 songs, for just $350 and a new 60GB model, holding up to 15,000 songs, for $450. Apple also introduced the new iPod Camera Connector, due in late-March for $30. The optional accessory enables customers to connect their digital camera to iPod photo and import their photos into the iPod. "By simply connecting the iPod Camera Connector and a digital camera, customers can easily transfer digital images to their iPod photo." The iPod photo includes earbud headphones, a USB 2.0 cable, and a USB power adapter.

    firewire

    Goodbye firewire. No one will be using you in another year, apparently.

    60GB new?

    So the 60GB unit Apple sent me a few weeks ago to try out was an advance test unit? I thought from the get-go there always had been a 60GB model....?

    firewire

    Yeah, I noticed that, too...shame that you now have to pay extra for the Apple-invented high speed connection.

    But, on the other hand, it simplifies things for Apple, not having to ship 2 cables with each iPod, and not having to have 2 different versions ("firewire or USB model" or "Mac or Windows model") that would complicate matters further.

    Re: 60GB new?

    Nostromo: no, the 60GB is the same as before, but now costs $449 instead of $599. (!)

    Use Your Extra Cables

    Get a SendStation PocketDock and use your existing FireWire cables!
    I got one, works great! I use it with a green 8" FireWire cable to match my girlfriend's mini. She thinks it's purty.

    Firmware?

    Will there be a firmware update for existing iPod photos that will enable them to do live viewing of images (without having to sync with iTunes/iPhoto first)?

    Re: firmware

    Of course not. Apple allow previous users to get some new functionality? Are you insane?

    New iPod photo

    The previous iPod photo 60G encluded:
    AV cable
    Photo dock with S-Video out
    Firewire Cable

    Now cool optional accessories.

    Wonder if there will be a firmware update for iPod photo's because the USB is not reliable for large files(>500megs), that has been my experience so far. The firewire cable has been flawless.
