Items tagged with digital photo frame

The digital image frame craze was biggest a few years back; it was "the" must-have holiday gift, and ever since they've dwindled in popularity. We see them coming out less and less, because they have reached a point where it's hard to innovate beyond where they currently are. But Panasonic's newest frame actually is rather enticing. The MW-20 is slim device that looks a lot like the Sony Dash, and aside from being a digital photo frame, it's also a multi-media system. Unlike most frames, this one has a built-in stereo sound system that's compatible with the iPod touch and iPhone, and it can play... Read more...
It's easier than ever to record cheesy videos of your vacation or embarrassing moments on the fly now that even basic point-n-shoot cameras come with the ability to shoot video, so it only makes sense that digital photo frames get on the same page. Thanks to Sony, they now have. Sony this week announced three new S-Frame digital photo frames -- DPF-XR100, DPF-VR100, and DPF-D830 -- equipped to bombard dinner party guests with both photo and video playback. "Our new digital photo frames offer consumers a variety of options for showing off their favorite images and now video in any room of the house... Read more...
We've seen digital photo frames shifting their feature set over the last few months in particular; it used to be that a large screen, maybe a Wi-Fi module and a few card slots made a decent frame. Now, it's not a standout frame without something really radical--something like a printer, or something like a live data connection with AT&T. T-Mobile's Cameo frame sparked this idea around a year ago, but that one barely took off. It has all but moved off of the radar screen, but we think more of that had to do with the odd selling situation than anything else. First, you had to be a T-Mobile customer... Read more...
We're guessing you went ahead and took care of most of your holiday shopping yesterday, but if you're anything like us, you'll stumble across a few people here and there that you still need to buy for. If you end up in that scenario, a digital photo frame is always a safe bet. It's kind of like the modern day fruit cake, but way more functional. The Intouch IT7150 is a stylish, useful choice, as this digital frame not only shows slideshows but also streams Internet radio stations wirelessly and gives users the ability to watch videos and receive RSS updates. Thanks to the built-in Wi-Fi module,... Read more...
For awhile, we figured that the digital photo frame had played its last card and it wouldn't be long before we saw the frames of yesteryear popping up in bargain bins everywhere as retailers made room for more enticing wares. Evidently that's not at all the plan, as it seems that digital frame makers are instead opting to spruce up their existing designs in order to milk all they can from the segment.We've already seen a bundle of frames with integrated printing units, and now Panasonic is deviating even further with its MW-10. This photo frame is the company's first-ever audio system with iPod... Read more...
At first we assumed that digital photo frames with integrated printers were just some sort of sideshow. And who knows, maybe they are. But one thing is for sure--they just keep coming and coming. The next on the list is the iMo Foto Frame Photo Printer, which is actually being sold by the same folks who engineered the Mimo line of USB-based secondary monitors. The company claims that this is the world's first patented device to combine display and printing capabilities, but we're not so sure based on the others that we've seen emerge before it. At any rate, there's a 8" 800x600 display for showing... Read more...
The digital photo frame has obviously run its course and made its splash, but rather than choosing to fade away, it looks like frame makers are deciding to spruce things up. Sony is the latest to join the trend of adding new functionality to digital photo frames, with this one in particular gaining a printer (much like Seiko Epson's Colorio). The DPP-F700 falls into the company's S-Frame line, and as expected, it somehow crams a digital frame and a printer into a single device. The all-in-one device allows users to display slideshows on the 7-inch display (which has a WVGA 800 x 480 resolution)... Read more...
It's almost the holiday season--do you know what that means? It probably means that you'll be giving at least one digital photo frame away as a gift, even though that person either a) won't use it or b) will re-gift it soon after. For whatever reason, these frames have become the "fruitcake" of the digital era, largely because they've remained unchanged since they launched years ago. CEIVA, however, is looking to make a difference in the largely boring arena of digital photo frames.The company's new Pro 80 Digital Photo Frame is definitely different than the rest, boasting not just simple slideshow...

Um, okay? Just when we thought the digital photo frame market was hitting rock bottom in terms of innovation, Seiko Epson (of all companies!) swoops in to show us why we're wrong. For years now, the digital photo frame has become a low-rate item used to gift strangers at Christmas when you don't know what else to get. It was once a cutting-edge technology, but a lack of innovation in the sector has caused it to fall flat.Seiko Epson is evidently eager to spark things back up, with its new Colorio Me printer actually doubling as a digital photo frame. This is just one example of the outfit hoping... Read more...
Digital photo frames have definitely fallen off the map. Just a few years back, these were the hottest gifts out there; today, they're mostly an afterthought. The reason? Frst off, we don't think people actually use these things nearly as much as they think they will when eying one in the store. Secondly, they've hardly evolved since debuting. A digital frame today looks just like a digital frame from two years ago, but that's starting to change with the introduction of Sony's latest. The limited edition S-Frame (model number DPF-D72N/BQ) thumbs its nose to this so-called recession by plastering... Read more...
Digital photo frames have been gaining traction in the market for years now, and with prices on them continually spiraling downward, more and more of 'em are being used as gifts and whatnot to decorate the modern home. Rather than just joining the herd, Toshiba has decided to spice its latest digital media frames up a bit with Wi-Fi and widgets. What more could you ask, right?The company's new trifect, which are features in House Beautiful Magazine's Kitchen of the Year, take the digital photo frame to the next logical level. By having Wi-Fi built in, these can remain connected to the 'net so long... Read more...
Samsung announced a new digital photo frame that has 1GB of built in storage and a slim screen depth of less than one inch. The new SPF-87H Photo Frame can store up to 3,000 photos on its internal memory while being powered by a single USB cable. For versatility, the SPF-87H Ultra Slim has a ball hinge design that lets you place the frame in nearly any location. The frame has an 8-inch wide screen with a resolution of 800 x 400 and a 500:1 contrast ratio. In addition to serving as a digital photo frame, the SPF-87H can also be connected to a computer and used as a secondary monitor. The SPF-87H... Read more...
