Additionally, Sony announced three more beautiful digital photo frames that are designed to display crystal clear images (10" DPF-V1000, 9" DPF-D92, 8" DPF-D82).
"Our digital photo frames fit into any décor and make the best centerpiece for your bedside table, living room, or home office," says Michelle Seemann, Product Manager, Digital Imaging Peripherals at Sony of Canada Ltd. "Their modern, super slim design and intelligent features make them the perfect way to display and enjoy your digital photos."
The frames offer new alarm clock, auto-image rotation, advanced timer, and a variety of slide-show features. Using the advanced timer, you can set multiple times that the digital photo frames will automatically turn on and off, to match your schedule and to conserve power.
The convenient auto orientation sensor automatically detects whether the frame is positioned horizontally or vertically and then adjusts the display of the pictures accordingly. As well, when the frames are horizontal the Sony logo will light up. When the frames are vertical, the logo turns off and blends into the piano black finish. You can also turn the Sony logo on or off from the menu.
All of the frames offer many slide-show variations including clock and calendar views with and without a slide-show. On the two 10" models, choose from four scrapbooking templates in slideshow mode and 18 templates in creative edit mode to view pictures against various backgrounds.
The two 10" frames also feature "Auto Touch-Up", HDMI, and an auto dimmer which automatically adjusts the display's brightness based on the lighting. The Auto Touch-Up feature corrects the white balance, exposure, focus, and red-eye in digital photos to provide superiour picture quality. The HDMI connection allows the frames to connect to Sony BRAVIA® HDTVs and other compatible HDTV sets to display your photos in high definition via an HDMI™ cable (sold separately).
It is easy to store and search thousands of digital images on the frames' internal memories. Search by date, folder, marked photos or photo orientation (vertical and horizontal) to easily find and organize photos.
Digital images can be loaded onto the internal memory of the digital photo frames from several types of flash memory cards, including Memory Stick PRO™, Memory Stick PRO Duo™, SD Memory Card, MMC, SDHC, Microdrive®, xD-Picture Card and Compact Flash Card. These new S-Frame models support JPEG, BMP, TIFF and RAW (SRF, SR2, ARW) image file formats.
The DPF-X1000 frame with TruBlack technology has 2GB of storage and comes in black. The DPF-V1000 model can store thousands of photos on its 1GB internal memory and comes in black with silver trim.
The 9-inch DPF-D92 and 8-inch DPF-D82 digital photo frames have a WVGA LCD display with a 15:9 aspect ratio and 1GB of internal memory. The DPF-D92 frame comes in black and brown, and the DPF-D82 model comes in black.
The new photo frames all are Bluetooth® ready. Using a Bluetooth adaptor (sold separately), the frames can import images wirelessly from a Bluetooth-device such as a mobile phone.
All models will be available in spring 2009, online at store.sony.ca, at Sony Style® retail stores, and at authorized dealers across
