Sony Australia is set to launch a multi tasking digital photo frame that will also print images direct from the picture frame.
The new S-Frame DPP-F700 which is expected in Australia in the new year, allows users to produce instant prints from images shown on the digital photo frame.
The device that prints 4-by-6 inch professional quality 300-by-300 dpi photos instantly in just 45 seconds, has a 7″ 16:10 LCD display with WVGA (800-by-480) resolution and is expected to retail for around $399 in Australia. It will sell for $200 in the USA.
The frame will also enable users to edit images before making prints. Editing options include enlarging, reducing, cropping, date stamping, adding borders or omitting, and adjusting brightness, contrast, hue, and sharpness.
A Creative Print mode will enable making photo calendar using more than 30 templates, print an ID photo, and create a “layout print” with multiple images on one sheet. The S-frame includes 1GB of internal storage capacity with an auto-resizing adjustment that downsizes photos to let you store up to 2,000 photos.
The new S-Frame model supports JPEG, TIFF and BMP image file formats.
Images can be transferred to the frame via a USB connection or via most Flash memory cards, including Memory Stick PRO, Memory Stick PRO Duo, Secure Digital (SD), SDHC, Multi-Media Card (MMC), CompactFlash and xD-Picture Card media.
An Auto Orientation sensor automatically rotates photos to adjust for horizontal of vertical frame placement.
