A lot of us have this tendency to keep taking pictures, which keep piling up in albums and discs over time. While it is very rare that we look through these pictures, it keeps taking a lot of physical storage space. A portable digital photo album is hence the best answer to your photo storing problems. This helps you store all your photos in one place and view them when you want.
The portable digital photo album is a very tiny device, which can fit comfortably in your pocket. Most devices comes with a 7 to 8” display screen, SD card to store data and a good deal of battery life. These pictures can be downloaded directly from the SD card or digital camera and can be organized and customized according to the user’s preferences. Here, we bring you a review on the two most popular portable digital photo albums.
Digital Foci 8” portable digital photo album
This device looks much more like a book than a digital photo frame. Hence, it is also called the Digital Photo Book. On opening this “book”, you can see an 8” LCD panel with a set of controls to the right hand side. There are two slots with covers on them – one is for the SD card and the other, for the USB. The power port is at the bottom. Because this one opens like a book, there is no prop for it, which would have been very useful.
Though nice and compact, this set does take a little too long to boot and switch between albums. There are two picture themes you could use. Uploading a few MP3 music files into it will also let you listen to music while playing a photo slideshow. This device comes with 4GB internal storage and supports video playback as well.
Though not the first digital photo album, this one is indeed one of the best. It is available for about $189, which might be considered by some to be pretty steep.
