Apple's Lightning to 30-pin Adapter will set you back $30 for hooking older accessories, video out is no go
Apple just listed in its store the adapter that connects the old 30-pin dock connector that assorted accessories still carry, to the new 8-pin Lightning one on the bottom of the iPhone 5.

The adapter will set you back $29, which is pretty steep for a simple adapter, but the fact that your older cables and accessories won't get obsolete with it around - priceless.

As with most official Apple accessories, we are expecting an influx of knockoff $10 adapters from the vast prairies of Shenzhen, but in the meantime the official thing is up for grabs at the Apple stores come some time in October. Unfortunately the Lightning to 30-pin Adapter does not supply "video and iPod out."
