I always wanted a digital photo frame, as soon as I first saw one, but when I saw the price of them it put me off. I decided to wait for the prices to fall. After waiting ages and the prices not falling much I went on ebay and bought this Sony DPF-D80 almost new for £30. I think you can get them even cheaper now.
When I got it I was surprised how sleek and expensive looking it was, but then it is a Sony and they are normally very stylish. It looked glossy and was black and looked more like an I pad or Tablet than a photo frame. The stand seemed a bit thin and fiddly but it has not broken and it stands up okay.
I have several hundred photos from old mobiles and my old Samsung camera, it's been a lot of fun being able to actually see them easily, rather than trying to access them through Samsungs software which takes hours to load up and is very hard to convert and move stuff around.
It has 2 different menus once you turn it on and a remote control if you are incredibly lazy. It has a similar kind of clever technology as the Samsung mini Galaxy for orienting the picture on the screen to the right way up whatever way round you have the frame / smartphone.
It has clocks and calenders that you can choose from as well, you can have the clock on and a picture which looks odd to me, the calender is an expensive way to check the date.
You also have the most useful thing which is the slideshow, which once you have uploaded your photos via a an SD card, SDHC,MMC, microdrive, compact flash in a usb port.
It supports JPEG and RAW pictures
The ratio is 4 : 3
The screen is 8 inches
It can decode up to 48 megapixels
Internal memory is 256 mb ( photos 200 mb )
Resolution is 800 x 600
This frame can hold enough photos for me, up to 500 , but there are much more advanced ones with bigger memory's available now, but you pay the extra amount as they are newer models.
Summary: good digital photoframe to buy secondhand
