Like a true Cancer-ian, I simply love going down memory lane and reliving the past with a pile of photos. It’s a good thing that we don’t rely on the paper photos anymore because my heart breaks every time I come across one that has faded. With the advent of the digital cameras, watching photos over the comp or the TV has an edge over the traditional paper. For people like me, Sony is introducing the HDMS-S1D “Digital Photo Album.” There are several methods for importing photos, including multiple flash memory card formats, CD, DVD, USB, or Ethernet. Once imported, the photo collections can be managed with the supplied remote control and the device’s intuitive interface. It boasts of an 80GB hard drive and HDMI outs. The photo managing x- Pict Story HD software creates professional-quality slideshows, eliminating the need for PC-based photo editing. Slideshows can be created by using the 30 pre-loaded music tracks and transition styles and in case you want to make it more personalized then you can add up to five songs from your own CD.
Sony HDMS-S1D digital photo album is available now for $400.
