Sony DPF-V700 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.

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.

USB for PC connectivity
In addition to being compatible with almost all memory cards, the S-Frame is equipped with two USB ports. A USB mini B (device) port allows image data transfer from a PC without software, while a USB A (host) port allows image data transfer from USB memories, USB card readers, and digital cameras. The large internal memory enables the S-Frame to be used as a memory card reader.

Bluetooth interaction with mobile devices
The S-Frame is compatible with Bluetooth USB adaptor DPPA-BT1 (option), which enables wireless transfer of images from Bluetooth-compatible PCs and mobile phones.

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 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 colours 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.

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.

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.

Room for all your memories
The large internal memory offers room to store hundreds of your most precious memories. The V900/V700 has a 512MB internal memory that holds up to 1,000 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 around for images to load. All S-Frames offer fast image decoding, eliminating the frustration of waiting around 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.

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 has never been easier or more intimate.

Rescue your memories
You can enjoy beautiful images thanks to automatic corrections of backlight, focus, red-eye, and skin smoothing.

* Skin smoothing: Automatically recognises facial parts, and adjusts the skin tone for a smoother look.
* Red-eye correction: Automatically detects faces and corrects red-eye caused by flash.
* Backlight correction: Adjusts the brightness by using the Face Detect function.
* Focus correction: Improves the focus of an out-of-focus image to create a better- focused image.

As the “before” and “after” correction photos are displayed together, you can see the difference at a glance. Of course, the “after” correction photo can be stored as a separate file in the internal memory.

Simple one-lead connection
View and share your favourite photos on a large HDTV screen via the V900/700’s HDMI terminal, and add a new dimension of enjoyment to parties, family gatherings and other special events.

PhotoTV HD
The S-Frame is fully compatible with the PhotoTV HD standard. This means you can add a whole new dimension of enjoyment to parties, family gatherings and other special events by sharing your favourite photos on a large HDTV. Connection is simplicity itself. Just connect the S-Frame to a PhotoTV HD-compatible TV using an optional HDMI cable. This will automatically power up the TV and select the input terminal, displaying the images on the big screen. PhotoTV HD renders your photos in a highly-detailed, photo-like expression of subtle textures and colors, opening a whole new world of photo enjoyment by displaying your images in breathtaking Full HD quality.

BRAVIA Sync for easy playback using the BRAVIA remote control
In addition to the S-Frame remote control, when you connect an S-Frame to a BRAVIA Sync-compatible HDTV using an optional HDMI cable, you can use the Link Menu button on the BRAVIA remote control to operate the S-Frame directly. This makes viewing your pictures on a large-screen TV even easiser and more enjoyable.
