Actually I have a couple of digital cameras - an Fuji A101 (about 4
years old) and a Canon G5 (about a year old). Both are USB but use
different connectors at the camera end. The Canon has a connector that
looks like a minature version of a PC's USB socket, whilst the Fuji has
a similar sized minature connector, but with the contacts arranged in a
square pattern rather than a line.

Not sure which is an accepted standard and which isn't (or maybe neither
are), but I've seen both types on other cameras.
