Hama Digital Photo Album

by Mark R

myphoto-63I don’t think that I could have sung higher praises of the Digital Foci Photo Book on my hands-on review, but that was before I saw that the Hama Photo Album is about to be released.

I suddenly had a flashback to CES last January, when I stumbled across the booth with this fine product. The only reason why I remember it is because of its Braille dot logo on the word “Album” and its simpler three-button interface. (Simpler when compared to the Photo Book, which is still pretty simple, really.)

The Digital Photo Album comes with a 7” inch screen that displays JPEGs in 800 x 480 pixel resolution. These images can be transferred directly to the device via USB port with USB OTG. There is about 4 GB worth of memory on the Album for the user’s photos, and it can also read SD, SDHC, and MM cards.

As far as I can tell, the Hama Digital Photo Album is almost identical to the aforementioned Photo Book from Digital Foci. Digital Foci’s got an extra inch worth of frame on its diagonal, but lasts the same amount of time after recharge: 2.5 hours.

The problem is, my source doesn’t say when the Hama Digital Photo Album will be released, nor a price. It would appear that little has changed since I saw Hama at CES, but I’m sure they are making progress, and I look forward to seeing the Digital Photo Album when it is finally released.
