Sony’s Digital Picture Frame With Built-In Printer

Sony is set to release a digital picture frame that sports a built-in photo printer! Now you can not only enjoy your photos, but you can print them and hand them off to your guests in a matter of seconds. The idea of a digital picture frame with a built-in printer is not only unique, but absolutely necessary. Think of uploading photos of your party and printing the best pictures for your guests right on the spot! Imagine taking photos of your grandchildren and printing their photos and giving it to them as souvenirs! Sharing photos has never been easier.

The Sony DPP-F700 is a S-Frame digital photo frame with a 7-inch WVGA LCD frame. It is capable of displaying pictures at a resolution of 800×480 and has an aspect ratio of 16:10. It is jet black and stylish, able to showcase your photos in vibrant colors and crisp details.

The built-in printer is capable of printing professional quality 4 x 6-inch, 300 x 300 dpi photos in just 45 seconds. You are able to edit the photos before printing. Editing options allow you to manipulate photos in various ways, including enlarge, reduce, crop, date stamp, border/borderless, brightness, contrast, hue, and sharpness adjustments.

You are able to transfer your photos to the Sony digital picture frame through a USB port or via most popular memory cards, such as SD, MMC, CF, and more. Further, the picture frame has a 1GB internal memory, allowing you to store up to 2,000 photos. There are multiple playback options, allowing you to display your photos as single images or as a slideshow, using 10 built-in transition modes.

Missing functions are wireless support and movie/audio playback. Also, this digital picture frame does not support RSS feeds. The Sony DPP-F700 will be available in January of 2010, a little too late for Christmas, and it will cost $200. Not withstanding the missing functionalities, this digital picture frame is a great gadget because of the built-in printer.
