Sony DPF-D80 Digital Photo Frame Expert Reviews

CNET reviews the Sony DPF-D80 Digital Photo Frame and writes;
“I really like the display quality of this frame. With 800×600 resolution and a 4:3 aspect ratio, photos look sharp enough, with few jaggies. The D80 has a bit better dynamic range than I’m used to seeing; highlights and shadows render pretty well, colors and skin tones are pretty accurate, and there’s little visible color contouring.”

PCAdvisor reviews the Sony DPF-D80 Digital Photo Frame and writes;
“Colour on the Sony DPF-D80’s sharp 800-by-600 screen pops well, looks saturated, and showed no noticeable distortion in our tests. Like most frames, the D80 allows you to adjust brightness but not contrast or colour. Luckily, it presents colour quite accurately here.”

“The DPF-D80 is a “one trick pony” among photo frames. If you want a frame that looks good, has a great display, and doesn’t get in the way of showing off your images with useless features or terrible menus, the DPF-D80 is a great choice. Using the D80 is painless to the point that you’ll probably never even open the manual, and the images it displays look great – even better now that Sony has subbed in a 4:3 aspect ratio display instead.”

Beautiful, stunning picture! | Rating: ★★★★★
“Sony is a great brand and they make a great digital photo frame. I bought an off-brand a couple of years ago and still regret it to this day. The colors on THIS unit are deep and crisp. It’s just a beautiful picture. The frame’s gloss black finish also helps to complement that nice picture. Definitely a great buy for the price and size of the picture you get!” – By JJS

“I am very happy with my Sony digital frame. It has wonderful picture quality and the simple black frame is just what I was looking for. It’s not too big or too small. Not being too computer savvy, I was looking for something fool-proof. It is pretty easy to load and download pictures on it. I would highly recommend it.” – By amateur photo bug

“OMG after buying and returning 6 different digital picture frames I finally found the digital picture frame I LOVE! Of course I own a sony camera so that might make this picture frame make my pictures look awesome! I plug in my Duo and hit the pic. I wanted to upload and bingo – NO Problems! The screen is not dark, it does not chop off part of my photos, the pictures are crips and clean.” – By J. Seehusen

great photo quality, | Rating: ★★★★☆
“This frame has great photo quality and is very easy to use. Some reviewers complained that the word Sony at the bottom of the frame stayed illuminated. On mine it lights up when you turn it on, then goes off as the pictures start to display, so it isn’t a distraction. I gave it only 4 stars because it doesn’t play video. Otherwise it’s a great digital photo frame, and I like it much better than the Kodak one I had previously.” – By R. Miller

Great Piece, except for a few minor issues, | Rating: ★★★★☆
“4:3 aspect ratio matches with that of many camera’ settings. Almost no image cropping hassles (Unless images are shot in widescreen mode – a rarity), 800×600 resolution implies amazing clarity – Gives a great feel to images, Random option in slideshow – It saves you from seeing the photos in the same order time and again.” – By Balaji Iyer

Beautiful Frame, Simple to Use, | Rating: ★★★★★
“The pictures look great and the frame is very sleek and stylish (I had purchased my father a Kodak Digital Frame a few years ago for Christmas. It too was very nice looking with the option to swap out decorative frames but I much prefer the look and feel of this frame 100%. Shiny, black and sleek). It’s a great addition to the home office and I love that we now have all of our favorite photos of us and the kids on full display throughout the day.” – By C. A. Batten

Looks great, works great can be frustrating. | Rating: ★★★★☆
“I bought this for my parents’ 60th wedding anniversary. My daughter uploaded a lot of old family photos. My Mom and Dad loved it. However, my daughter was not pleased with the uploading process. She loaded photos from a computer using the USB connection. The user manuel was not at all helpful for this process. There was a lot more information if one were to use a memory stick.” – By S. N. Harris

Sony DPF-D80 Highlights

Easy two-step operation. The S-Frame offers easy, convenient operation for all users. All you need do is follow a simple two-step procedure: First, shoot a photo and save to memory; second, insert the memory media into the S-Frame and enjoy your photos..

Enhance your photo enjoyment effortlessly

* Full-function remote control All the functions of the S-Frame can be operated by the compact remote control that provides maximum functionality with amazing ease of use. There are no complicated set-up or difficult operating procedures with the S-Frame.
* One-button control The “View Mode” button, on both the remote control and main body, provides simple and convenient functionality. Simply pressing this one button lets you switch view options within each of the four display modes: Slideshow, Index, Still image, and Clock & calendar. For example, you can switch from “single,” “multi-image,” “clock,” or “calendar” to “random” view in Slideshow mode, and from “analogue” to “digital” in Clock mode.

Multi-format card slot The multi-format card slot supports a wide range of memory cards such as Memory Stick, Memory Stick Duo, SD, MMC, CompactFlash, Microdrive, and xD-Picture Card. This enables a simple plug-and-play display of images shot on most digital cameras. M2, miniSD and MicroSD are compatible via an adaptor.

Automatic rotation of images The photo frame automatically rotates images to their proper orientation. Images are also automatically rotated when the photo frame is set in either the portrait or landscape position.

True-to-life detail Every nuance of the original image is faithfully reproduced on the S-Frame thanks to the high-quality WVGA LCD. The 1.15 megapixel high-definition Clear Photo LCD renders tremendously detailed, realistic images that have vivid colors and contrast, and a sense of naturalness so real that you feel you could reach into the photo and touch what you see.

Fit to screen, or full image–it’s your choice The S-Frame offers both fit-to-screen and full-image modes. In fit-to-screen mode, the aspect ratio of the image is adjusted so that the image fills the entire screen. In full-image mode, the image is displayed in the original horizontal-to-vertical ratio, surrounded by margins on all four sides. The DPF-D80 offers a 4:3 aspect ratio.

Future camera milestone ready The S-Frame can display images of up to 48 megapixels, which supports most compact and DSLR cameras, a significant design breakthrough realized by the foresight of Sony–a leader in the digital imaging industry.

Handles large data files The S-Frame can also handle data files up to 100MB in size. This means that image files that have been edited on a PC, which tends to increase file size, can be displayed smoothly.

Room for all your memories The large internal memory offers room to store hundreds of your most precious memories. The DPF-D80 has a 256MB internal memory that holds up to 500 images. The S-Frame enables you to save the data saved in its internal memory to other memory cards.

Fast beyond expectations What’s even more impressive about the S-Frame is that it does all this quickly, without the frustration of waiting ages for images to load. All S-Frames offer fast image decoding, eliminating the frustration of waiting ages for images to load from memory cards or the internal memory. On models equipped with a BIONZ processor, this speed is truly phenomenal and even a 12-megapixel photo taken on a Cyber-shot W200 can be displayed in just 1.7 seconds. (For the D70 without BIONZ, images are displayed in 1.9 seconds.)

Create original photo albums The S-Frame offers you an endless variety of ways to create your own unique digital photo albums for yourself and friends. The photo album function copies data in memory cards, automatically resizing photos to optimum image size (equivalent to 1.5 megapixels) and storing them in the album’s large internal memory, ready for instant replay.

The gift that keeps on giving One of the greatest joys you can give someone is a never-fading memory of a shared experience, or one that they missed. The S-Frame makes a perfect time capsule of such treasured moments. Simply load one with memories, repack it and send it to friends or family. All the receiver has to do is take the S-Frame out of the box and turn it on, and a pre-programmed slideshow will start automatically. The joy of giving was never easier.
