The iPod Camera Connector supports cameras with USB connectivity based on the following commonly used protocols:

  • PTP
  • Type 4 (or Normal)
  • Mass Storage

If you're using Mac OS X 10.4.x (Tiger), you can use Image Capture to quickly verify what protocol your camera supports. To do this:

  • Connect your camera
  • Open Image Capture
  • Click the "Options" button and then click the "Information" Tab

The picture below shows an example of a supported camera that uses the Type 4 protocol.

 

If you're using Mac OS X 10.3.x, you can use Image Capture to quickly verify what protocol your camera supports. To do this:

  1. Connect your camera.
  2. Open Image Capture.
  3. Click Options and then click Device Options.

The picture below shows an example of a supported camera that uses the PTP protocol.

You can also check your camera's owner manual or the vendor's website to find out what protocols your camera supports. Also see "iPod Camera Connector: Choosing a photo importing protocol on a camera" for additional information.

 

 

Additional Information

  1. To see if your third-party media reader is supported, check with the manufacturer. For best results, Apple recommends using a media reader that uses its own power supply.
  2. The iPod Camera Connector is only for use with the iPod photo, iPod with color display, and Fifth Generation iPod (iPod with video). It doesn't work with iPod nano, iPod mini, iPod shuffle, or other models of iPod.
