“ Kodak EASYSHARE D1030 Digital Frame - Digital photo frame - flash 512 MB - 10" „
I really like this photo frame. I bought one for my Dad last year, he wanted a 10 inch frame so that he could see the photos from the other side of the room and he wanted one that would shuffle the photos so as not to play them in the same order every time as he has a lot of photos.
We had searched the 10 inch frames but couldn't find in the write ups of any of them whether they shuffled the photos but then someone told me they had a smaller Kodak one that did it so I looked on their web site and found this one.
It is quite expensive seeing that it doesn't play music or play videos like some of them do but it was what my Dad wanted. The price on the Kodak site was £119.99 but we bought it from Amazon for £109.99 and I had some vouchers to go with it so brought the price down to what we had been hoping to pay.
The photo frame comes with another frame that you can attach to the outside which makes it look nicer and larger, this is the darker frame you can see in the photo above. You could have the frame just with the inside bit or you can attach any normal photo frame to it in case you want one that matches other frames in the room.
You can hang it on the wall or have it standing up with the stand that comes with it and you can have it landscape or portrait, we have ours landscape. It automatically adjusts the photos so that they fit nicely in the frame, the ones that would have been portrait now sit in the middle of the screen with black bits each side to fill up the screen.
The photos are easy to put on to the frame, you can put them onto a memory card and just slot this in or you can put them onto a usb flash drive and put this in. You can copy the photos onto the memory inside the frame if you want and it says it will hold 4000 photos in this memory so I don't think we will need a memory card at present. We found that when you copy the photos over it resizes them to the best size so it doesn't use up too much memory. This was a good thing as we were a bit worried that some of the photos that had been taken on digital cameras would be too big and fill it up quickly.
A lot of my Dad's photos are old ones that we have scanned onto the computer but even these look nice on the screen.
The frame does not come with a proper manual, it comes with a sheet that tells you how to put the frame together and set it up first time but then you have to go on line to see the manual. This was quite easy to do and you could open it in the browser or download it as pdf file. We did this option and saved it to the desk top and also printed out a couple of pages so we had them to hand to remind us how to do it all.
The inner frame has a kind of touch screen effect on it, you don't actually touch the screen but when you put your hand next to the frame some lights show up and you can access the menus by touching these lights. When you move your hand away the lights vanish. It took a little while to get used to this but once mastered it was quite easy to go through the menus.
All in all we are very pleased with the photo frame and would recommend it to anyone who wants a decent frame.
