Now that you're snapping digital photos, you'll want to display your images in true digi-geek style with the DPF-56 5.6-inch digital picture Frame. What is a digital picture frame? It's a specially designed screen that looks like a traditional frame, but lets you view all your digital pictures directly from your camera's memory cards. Forget about paper prints and get ready for the future with the DPF-56.
With the digital picture frame, you can create a slideshow using multiple transition effects for a unique viewing experience or simply display one picture at a time. Forget about viewing your digital photos on your computer monitor -- use the DPF-56 instead. Equipped with MP3 playback capabilities, the DPF-56 delivers high-quality JPEG images and MP3 format tunes without a computer so you can present stunning slideshows of your images. The bright, 5.6-inch TFT active matrix LCD screen will show off your photographs and the built-in speakers will bring your images to life with sound.
Conduct your own slideshows from the screen or the comfort of your favorite chair. The digital picture frame has a user-friendly, on-screen display that allows easy access to all the controls and it is equipped with a credit card-style, ultra-slim remote control. No matter where you're standing, you'll be at the helm of your digital, multi-media showcase.

For A, all these smaller models (with the stupid widescreen display) insisted on either overscaling the photo to the 16:9 display, or underscaling it to something less than 4:3. So people either look fat or skinny, never just right. Why they would screw this up I have no idea -- 99% of the digital photos in the world are in 4:3 aspect ratio, and no thanks I'm not about to crop hundreds of photos.
For B, all these smaller models only offered random transitions. That is, they would wipe left, then wipe up, then do a venetian blind effect, et cetera. You can't tell it to use a specific transition.
THIS MODEL DOES BOTH RIGHT! Standard 4:3 photos are not distorted by the widescreen display, and I can choose a specific transition! Even better, it has the simple "crossfade" transition that nobody else seems to have, at least not at this price point.
The display is OK, I've seen worse. It doesn't randomize the photos, but I can fix that by renaming them. In short, I've finally found the DPF for me! Too bad that (as I write this) Amazon doesn't have any available :) I'd point you directly to the frame's manufacturer, but Amazon probably doesn't like that in comments so I won't.
I purchased one last year as a Christmas gift for my wife and found it incredibly easy to use. Just load your photos onto a memory card (it takes practically every kind made) and slide it into one of the slots on the frame. Use the remote to turn it on and spend maybe a minute or two setting it up, and you are ready to roll. It was such a neat gift that I have since bought another for my aunt (who called to say how neat it was and how easy she found it to use) and I will buy the larger model (7" screen) soon.
The downside is that your pictures will not look as good on this frame as they do on your 17-inch computer monitor, but what do you expect from a 5.6" screen? The quality for the size of the screen is about what I would expect. You do need to spend a couple of minutes adjusting the brightness and then the angle that the frame is set at in order to get the best view of your pictures. The frame has an adjustable arm on the back (like a regular picture frame) that controls what angle the frame sits at in relation to whatever horizontal surface you place it on. If the angle is not just right the pictures won't look very good. It's like looking at your computer monitor from a funny angle, adjust it to where you're going to be looking at it from, and everything looks much better.
I use a 512MB CF card and have literally a ton of photos jammed in there. Originally, I just kept them at the original size as taken by my digital camera, but as I added more photos this past year I realized that eventually I was going to run out of space. So, I adjusted the size of them all down to the optimal size for the frame (640x480) and with all of the files down to less than 50Kbs in size I don't think I will ever fill it up.
I gave it four stars because a five star rating would require a larger screen, rechargeable instead of corded, and somewhat better picture quality. But, to get all that you're going to pay more.
