Welcome to Reviews OnLine: Digi-Frame's New DF-560
Digi-Frame's New DF-560
Elegent showcase for digital memories
by Stephen Jones (June 24, 2000)


Digital photography is great (almost). It frees you from the photo lab and yields instant results. But, when it comes to presenting your precious pixels, your options are limited. Your are tied to the "big iron" of your PC or your television or must resort to the oldest media, paper.

Digi-Frame brings back one of the nicest aspects of photography, incorporating pictures into your everyday environment without all the clunky hardware.

Their latest Digi-Frame consists of a high-quality 5.6" active-matrix color TFT LCD display stylishly dressed in a designer frame. Like the traditional variety, a Digi-Frame can be set vertically or horizontally, on a wall or shelf or desktop.

Of course, this outward simplicity and familiarity is backed up by the technical smarts that makes the Digi-Frame useful (and usable). The device accepts either CompactFlash or SmartMedia memory cards directly from your digital camera. Alternatively, you can download pictures directly from your PC via a serial connection.

Using on-screen menus and a thumbnail view of your pictures, you select which pictures you want to display in what order, how long to display each, and even video-like transitions between them. You can also "thumb through" your pictures at will using the multi-function control wheel.

Altogether, the elegant form and flashy function could make this $599 piece of high-tech decor a stylish showcase for your digital memories.
