Hi All

I am looking for a digital photo frame to give to my parents for christmas (they will be missing me this christmas as I am overseas for a year and I want to full their life with plenty of photos of me during my travels)

The catch is I want one that can be pluged into ethernet over wireless or memory card and am having trouble tracking on down that is not 15'' 17'' or 19''.


Any suggestions?

Regards


Dion

Sorry, cant help, but interesting concept - I guess you want to remotely update the photos in the frame for them?

Very cool idea...

I'll be watching this thread with interest also.  My partner is wanting a digital photo frame but I'm not wanting to be tied to a memory card.

Cheers,

Yes I just want to be able to update them as I go so they will see new photos on them as I travel.
None of my family are really Tech savy so I want to just have something that I can hopefully get them to setup with out having to call on any friends and see if I can get them to setup a port foward on their router to the photo frame for me to access.

I am in the middle of making one, take one largish picture frame, cheap laptop off trademe and vola.

Costs around $100 - $150 including frame and laptop and of course you can run a full OS on it too and you can choise the size of the lcd

I abit more work but a lot cheaper and heaps of fun

DSE sell some, most of them rely on memory cards. However some can just work off a USB flash drive, or there is the kodak that has wifi built in.

I think I will just wait until I get home and setup something its a pain when you don't know anyone that is technically minded enough in your family to setup stuff like this.

ThinkGeek ship internationally, they sometimes carry products like this.
Something like this perhaps?

Thanks

have had a look and they have some good feathers like emailing the photos to it.
I could also associate it with my Photo bucket account what would make things easier than having to connect to the device all the time to update it.

mckenndk: I could also associate it with my Photo bucket account


That's a killer feature, pulling from one, or aggregating from multiple sources, photobucket/flickr etc. I always thought this digital-foto-frame thing was a bit lame, definately softening up on that now :-)

Mmm I like that one on Thinkgeek. Considering the Kodak one at DSE is around $383...
$269 USD = $363 NZD at present.  The thinkgeek one seems to offer more features, is cheaper and well worth the money...

Don't forget about shipping. Could be around US$40 for delivery to NZ... You can calculate an estimate when you check your cart.
