iPod Camera Connector supports video, audio importing

Following iLounge’s report earlier this week, Apple has now reposted several support documents and added new ones on the iPod Camera Connector and the iPod photo 1.1 software update.

Two of the new documents reveal further interesting details of the device. According to Apple, you can use the the Camera Connector to not only import photos, but to also transfer videos and audio (with a supported camera) to your iPod photo.

“Though you can’t view movie files on iPod photo, you can view it on your computer after you connect your iPod to your computer and transfer the file,” Apple says in one document. “If you select the file on your iPod, you will see the following message: ‘This media file cannot be viewed or played on iPod. Use QuickTime to open this file on your computer.’” The company says you will get the same message if you try to open an imported audio file.

Apple also says that the Camera Connector can import photos in the RAW image format, but that an iPod photo cannot display them. In addition, iPod photo software 1.1 enables you to use an iPod remote to control an iPod photo slideshow (previously, you could only use the Click Wheel).

The new support documents include:

 How to use the iPod Camera Connector
 iPod Camera Connector: Using the USB port
 iPod Camera Connector: Supported Devices
 iPod Camera Connector: Choosing a photo importing protocol on a camera
 iPod photo: Understanding Browse Roll icons
 iPod photo: Use Delete Roll to delete imported photos
 iPod photo: Use your camera’s erase function to erase a media card completely
 iPod photo: Update software to use iPod Remote for slideshows
 iPod photo may seem to stop responding when importing movies
