Sony's new limited edition digital photo frame ticks the boxes for looks and functionality. The DPF-D72N/BQ features an elegant and understated black frame with Crystallized Swarovski Elements and stores up to 2,000 images courtesy of 1GB internal storage. It also has a nifty auto-resizing feature. Other functions include clock and calendar modes, and an Auto Orientation sensor that automatically rotates your photos into portrait or landscape format according to the placement of the frame.

The Sony DPF-D72N/BQ has a 7-inch (diagonal) wide (16:10) LCD display with WVGA (800 x 480) resolution.

The 1GB internal storage capacity, along with an auto-resizing adjustment that downsizes photos, allows you to store up to 2,000 photos in JPEG and RAW (SRF, SR2, ARW) file formats.

Photos can be viewed and managed through a range of modes - all via remote control - including single images, thumbnails for easy searching, and slideshow.

Image transfer is via direct USB input from your PC, and most memory cards are supported including Memory Stick PRO™, Memory Stick PRO Duo™, Secure Digital (SD), Multi-Media Card (MMC), Compact Flash®, xD-Picture Card™ media and SDHC.

The frame's Auto Orientation sensor will automatically rotate your photos into portrait or landscape format according to placement of the frame (which can even be wall-mounted).

The DPF-D72N/BQ digital photo frame will be available for about USD$150 in October and can be purchased online at Sony Style and at authorized dealers.
