Logitech will tomorrow release drivers allowing Mac OS X users to download pictures taken with the company's credit card-sized Pocket Digital camera, The Register has learned.

Sources close to the company say the drivers, which work with Mac OS X's Image Capture application and iPhoto, will be offered free of charge as a download from the company's

web site

.

It's not clear at this stage whether Logitech will bundle the new drivers with the camera and brand it as a Mac-compatible product.

Launched a year ago as a Windows-only product, the 0.5in-thick Pocket Digital contains a 640x480 camera but can interpolate images up to 1.3 megapixels. The camera doesn't have a flash, but it uses software to automatically adjust the image in overly dark or bright conditions. There's enough memory to store 52 pictures, which can be copied over to a PC via a USB link. The same connection is used to recharge the Pocket Digital's built-in rechargeable Lithium-polymer battery.

The Pocket Digital retails for around $99.95 in the US and £119.99 in the UK. ®
