Digital photo frames have been around for a few years, but their capabilities have been limited until now. The Kodak Pulse Digital Frame allows you to connect your digital photo collection socially.
Some of my relatives have a digital photo frame, which sits collecting dust because it is such a hassle to turn on and get started with it. The beauty of this Pulse Digital Frame is that it detects motion, and turns on instantly.
- Built-in activity sensor turns the frame on when you’re nearby and conserves energy when you’re not
- ENERGY STAR® qualified
It was so easy to set up this Pulse Frame to be able to add photos from my iPhoto library. Did you know that people you know and love can also add photos to this frame? This is a fun way for family members to share photos together, easily. I could see this being a really useful feature for people who want to see what’s going on in their children or grandchildren’s lives.
With so many people buying digital frames for holiday gifts, I think that this one should be highly considered since it does so much more than the average frame. The 7″ Kodak Pulse Digital Frame, which I received to review, costs $99 at Amazon, while the 10″ Kodak Pulse Digital Frame costs $169. Both of these are quite affordable, given the good value. The Wi-Fi capabilities really add a lot of features to this frame—you can instantly add photos from your Facebook account, for instance! You can actually sync it so that new photos are automatically added.
This Pulse frame has an internal memory of 512 MB, but it also supports other cards: 2 card slots and 1 USB port—Secure Digital (SD), Secure Digital High Capacity (SDHC), Multimedia Card (MMC), MEMORY STICK (MS), MS PRO/MS PRO DUO, XD-Picture Card (xD), USB.
There is an option to use a mosaic to view many photos at once, as you can see above.
I was sent this Kodak Pulse 7″ Digital Frame in order to conduct this review.
