    Question Digital Photo Frames, anyone?

    This seems to be a relatively unheard of product here, but it might be of interest to those who are keen on digital photography. Basically it is a photo frame with a small LCD screen built in, and it displays your digital photos in a slide show manner.

    The URL for the product: http://www.pacificdigitalcorp.com/products/mf570.asp

    Just wondering how many CSers here would like to own such a gadget, which probably costs around S$499. If there is enough interest, we might be able to do a mass order.

    Don't worry, indicating that you would like to own such a gadget doesn't mean confirming to place an order if there is a MO.

    Any comments on this product? After following an older thread on converting an old laptop into a digital photo frame, this product seems rather expensive to own.

    Well a LCD itself is already gonna cost quite a bit right? Unless it gets cheaper, don't think its a very feasible idea...

    maybe we can try to get those like 5 to 8 inches "barebone" type?

    anyway, someone has already tried diy the digital photo frame already and so I dun think that it is impossible to do so.....and somemore that guy is using a normal 15" LCD display.

    If can buy 2. 1 for portrait pics display & the other for landscape pics display. But non-digital display beats print yet. I know this 2 are different media lar.

    I want but will wait for the price to go very much lower. 22" LCD only cost less than $400.

    We have to wait untill nanotechnology becomes advanced to the state that nano-digi-photo frames are as cheap as their print counterparts now
    Who knows that might only be in the year 2500 lol
