Apple's iPod Camera Connector is now available at Apple's online store.

The device enables a digital camera to be connected to an iPod photo allowing photos to be imported into the iPod.

The Camera Connector features a cable for connecting to the iPod and a USB port for connecting to a camera. Pictures load onto an iPod photo directly from the Camera Connector and are immediately viewable on the iPod's screen. They can then be easily transferred to iPhoto or various photo applications on the PC.

However, in an interview with Cnet Apple's Greg Joswiak revealed that in order for the photos to be shown on a TV, the iPod Photo will need to be connected to a computer first.

There is currently a wait of eight days for the device that costs £19. There are other similar devices already on the market, but these are more expensive than Apple's offering. For example, Belkin's Digital Camera Link for iPod costs £69.95.
