The Falcon Fridge Magnet 'Digiframe' £29.99 from I Want One of Those
I was sorting out some boxes recently and came across a collection of old photos. I managed to waste a delicious hour or two being transported back to lovely holidays and numerous Birthday parties. Since I started to use a digital camera I just don't look at the photos much. Once I have taken them, I barely bother to print any out, just archive them and let them languish on my hard drive somewhere. But now I have discovered a great little gadget called a Digiframe by Falcon - a mini photo frame combined with a fridge magnet.
What a fantastic product. I simply charge it up using a USB cable, select the images I want from my hard drive using the software provided and slap it on my fridge. The quality of the images resolution really surprised me, after all the unit is only 85mm by 55mm with a screen size of 60mm. Each picture was absolutely crystal clear and framed in a lovely brushed steel effect.
I was able to drag out images from several years ago and set up a wonderfully nostalgic slide show. Although a word of caution - don't spend too long grinning inanely at the fridge or your family could get completely the wrong idea!!
For those that want the technical low-down, the Digiframe has 32M of memory, which is around enough for 66 images. Those images are displayed on the 320x240 resolution colour display. You can load JPEG, GIF and BMP images, which will cover just about all cameras.
In slide-show mode, you can choose how long to linger on each image between 5 seconds and 80 seconds. The internal battery when fully charged will gve around 11 hours use, so it will work for a typical day, then charge over night.
Finally, should wish, there is a small stand so you can use this as a desk frame rather than attaching to your fridge, but there are probably better choices around for desk use. This particular product is aimed squarely at that vacant space on your fridge!
