Hands on with GiiNii’s new 8-inch Digital Photo Frame

It has been a while since I reported on GiiNii Digital Photo Frame, and the 8-inch “All-in-One” True Video Picture Frame looks nearly identical to one I reviewed a while ago.

It does have similar features like the 8-inch back-lit LED panel with 800 x 600 resolution and a 4:3 aspect ratio.

Pictures and videos can be loaded through the 6-in-1 card reader (SD, MMC, MS, MS Pro, MS Duo, and xD-Picture), USB flash drive, or transferred directly from a computer via USB to mini-USB into the 2GB of internal memory.

It can support photos like JPEG, BMP, GIF, TIFF, EXIF, and Progressive JPEG. It can also do audio like MP3, WMA, AAC, and WAVE, and, as an update on the last 8-inch frame, it can do MPEG-4 and AVC/H.264 video playback.

One thing that I like about this frame is the ease of controls, and it is able to create slideshows easily. Personalization seems to be key with this frame, as the user can put their pictures in scrapbooking templates, and set up their clock in a certain “skins” as well. These templates can also be created at the GiiNii site.

This digital picture frame should be available soon from Amazon and Staples for a price of $89.99 to $109.99. For those who are looking to purchase a digital picture frame as a gift, I would recommend this one.
