Very hot, they were £99 in M&S when I worked there and they had one on display, really wanted one but couldnt justify the £99!
#5
Did you say what size this is ?
#7
Curious that it appears to have a 5:3 aspect ratio.
#8
Which sainsburys did you see this in?
#9
I have this frame, very good, I got it for £55 discounted from Currys.

Has an accelerometer so auto-adjusts depending on which way up you have it, the Sony logo can be turned off, the slideshow timing is very flexible, you can basically have it from something like 30 seconds up to hours.

Built in clock means you can have it just display a clock face. Once the time is set you can also specify an automatic turn on/off time.

If I had to complain then I'd say the menu could have been a bit better thought out, but certainly no deal breaker.

Best looking 7" frame I've seen, no other 7" I saw had this resolution and it's featured packed, especially at that price.

5:3 is a common widescreen picture frame ratio. Any decent photo management software will give you the option of exporting to 5:3. Although it might say 15:9 instead.

I'd like to know this too please...
#11
I spotted it in Striling Sainsbury's didnt know if it was any good or not, so didnt bother. Might go back now, as a matter of interest , what is the resolution ? at work and cyber nannies suck lol
#12
800 x 480.

Which is a massive difference compared to the 480 x 234 you get on the cheap frames.
#13
Sainsburies in Rugby has some as does the one in Dundee... I've just bought one, very pleased as I was cursing on Monday when Amazon put their price up from £65 to £75.

There are none in Shirley, Southampton :-(
#15
Just picked one up from my local store. They even gave me and extra 10% off as the box was a little ragged. Not the largest display but photos look fantastic and the frame itself looks very cool and so much better than those budget offerings. Brilliant buy. Thanks for the post.
#16
Picked one up in Peterborough ( Bretton ) Still one on display too ! Thanks to original poster !
Heat added:thumbsup:
#17
couldn't find it in my local ;( good deal
#18

#19

Just got myself one to replace the one I got last year as that was so bulky....Such a great price for this photo frame.
#21
Voted hot as got one tonight,Ipswich Warren heath have them and Bury St.Edmunds stores if this helps :thumbsup:
#22
they had loads in Camberley - watchmoor park. I bought 3 all as presents. Its actually less than 49.99 due to the vat changes. They had a few left when I left. The chap before me in the queue bought 1 too.
HOT HOT HOT

Very happy - never get the instore deals.
#23
Got one in the Edinburgh Blackhall store earlier this evening.

Excellent price for such a good quality frame. Far better than the ****** cheapo low res ones.

Still had 2 or 3 left in the cabinet .... you had to ask for them at the clothing counter. They still has them priced at £79.99 in the display case .... I had to tell the girl they should be going through at £49.99 now, which they were.

Excellent spot. :)
#24
Just bought one from Salford,Manchester
Excellent Deal

#25

Although if you put normal aspect (4:3? I dunno) photos on there and ask the frame to stretch/crop to avoid the borders down each side, it does a pretty good job of that as well ;)

My only crib about it is there's no mode where it will discretely show the shoot date on the screen somewhere while showing the photo full screen. There's a mode where it will show the date but only on a blimmin great big calendar taking up 1/3 of the screen. Though that is a very minor crib tbh.
#27
I have bought 5 of these, 1 for myself and the rest for family, paid £90 each after staff discount from a good friend.

Cannot fault it at all, I've seen the cheap £30 aswell, some of them are restricted on the types of card, some can only handle images upto a certain size etc etc, but this was a dream, jus plug it in and pop the card in, as easy as that!

Heat added, would recomend to anyone, it looks amazing! :w00t:
#28
Picked one up from the Whitechapel store. They seemed to have a few left.
Looks really good, nice quality of display, and the ratio issue is sorted out by the zoom feature.
#29
Also one left in the eltham store for anyone in SE london.

No, 5:3 is fairly unusual, and widescreen is generally 16:9 (15:9 is the same as 5:3). Since most cameras default to 4:3, I'd have thought that was a more sensible and useful aspect ratio.
#31
only **** cameras default to 4:3
3:2 is much more sensible and professional looking

If so, then most cameras must be ****!

3:2 is much more sensible and professional looking

Why?

Agreed. I notice the 8 inch version of this frame has a 4:3 ratio so it's not like Sony don't know about it.
Still a good deal on this frame though

I queried the wide aspect ratio in a local Sony centre - the mgr indicated that it was designed for use with Sony cameras, which apparently take pictures in this wide ratio. A very good deal if your looking for this ratio of frame.

However, for most folk the 4:3 ratio frames are better suited and as said elsewhere Sony also make 4:3 frames. Also the best resolution frame imo is either a 600x480 or 800x600 anything less makes the pictures look 'grainy'.

Thanks for the post.

Just picked on up at the Barnwood store in Gloucester.

Got one from Sheffield (Crystal Peaks), they had several although some of the boxes had biro scribbled on them :oops:

FWIW I had a quick look through the specs of a random selection of Sony cameras and didn't find a single instance of a 5:3 aspect ratio!

But it wouldn't be a widescreen photo frame if it used 4:3. Most widescreen monitors are 15:9 so it's pretty sensible to use the same ratio.

And if it was unusual then photo management packages (such as Picasa) wouldn't have a "5:3 Widescreen photo frame" cropping tool.
#39
I have also been puzzled as to why most frames in shops are widescreen when most cameras take 4:3. I wanted a frame for someone to view their photos at leisure. They don't have a computer so the fact that "photo management packages (such as Picasa) wouldn't have a 5:3 Widescreen photo frame" cropping tool" is completely useless to them. They just want to plug in their SD card and away they go.

As a result we ended up with an 8" 4:3 800x600 Jessops frame (currently £59 less 5% with voucher less 3% Quidco but you have to wait until they have stock) which was highly rated in Which and most of the user reviews I read. It's good that this Sony foudn by the OP can automatically crop to 4:3 but we felt that a 4:3 frame would have been better suited to our purposes and on top of that you get a whole load more picture on an 8" 4:3 than a 7" widescreen.

http://www.jessops.com/online.store/categories/Digital%20Photo%20Frames/products/Jessops/Digital%20LCD%20Frame%208%20Hi-Resolution%20with%20clock-74914/Show.html

Another that Which rated top was the Toshiba Tekbright - but again it was 7" widescreen. However, they do an 8" Gigaframe which is 800x600 and one version is on offer which comes in at £55 delivered. My gripe with them was that the features they listed in their online ad weren't the features on the frame that was on offer. I rang them to say they were misleading people and they said they would get back to me - but didn't... so I got the Jessops. The link if anyone is interested is here :

http://www.home-entertainment.toshiba.co.uk/en/Generic-Pages/valentines-gigaframe-offer/?bannername=valentines_offer_home

But beware the frame in the picture is not the one in the offer.

The Sony's consistently did well in the Which tests... so the one the OP has found has to be a hot deal.

The 7" Toshiba Tekbright is available in store in Staples (at least the 2 I went in) for £48ish which is also a bleeding good deal.

As far as I can see, most widescreen monitors are 16:10. But presumably people will generally just want to display pics straight out of their camera, so it would make sense to use the same res that the cameras produce (which is typically not 15:9 for widescreen).

You're right, they wouldn't have such an option if there weren't a fair number of such frames about.
