Digital Foci were doing so well with their Image Moments 6 digital photo frame. The design is good – two-tone silver that neither looks too retro nor too modern – and the full-featured remote is handy; the screen – at 5.7-inch 640 x 480 VGA resolution – is just the right size and the file format compatibility broad. Then they went and spoilt it all by leaving out WiFi.
There’s 450MB of internal storage, a USB 2.0 connection to fill it, and integrated CF, MD, MMC, SD/HC Card, Memory Stick, MS PRO, MS Duo, MS PRO Duo and xD-Picture Card slots, but no way to whizz new images across your wireless network. Anyone who reads SlashGear regularly will know that I’m a big critic of digital photo frames that don’t include wireless, and while the Image Moments 6 may support plenty of media formats – JPG, BMP, TIFF, GIF, RAW image files, MP3, AAC, WMA, OGG and WAV audio, and MJPEG and MPEG-4SP video – I simply can’t get excited about it.
The Digital Foci Image Moments 6 will begin shipping on October 13th. It’s available to pre-order now, priced at $149.
