Extremely unlikely. These photodocks are propriatory and intended for connection to one make of camera.

A good reason why choosing a camera because of the 'cool dock' is a bad idea. The dock doesn't save you anything in the long run and is likely not compatible even from model to model within a camera's line. Whereas a card reader (especially the 5-in-1 types) will be good across all cameras assuming those types of memory are still in place a couple years down the road (fairly likely). To give you an example, my brother-in-law has a Kodak camera with dock - when I was over for an event and he wanted some of the pictures I took on my Canon - no can do - no way to transfer them. Whereas ifhe was using a card reader there would be no issue.

Thanks for the info. I do have a smart card so exchange and downloading are not a problem. From what you said, the dock is basically for recharging batteries.
