Disadvantages Few features, tricky to upload photos from a Mac
We’re not generally what my younger son calls ‘early adopters’ of new technology. So, although I had seen one or two digital photo frames by the end of 2008, it really hadn’t occurred to me that we would ever have one ourselves. I take thousands of photos, have a selection printed for albums, and a very small number enlarged to go in frames. But the majority stay, unnoticed, in archive form on my hard drive.My younger son decided that he wanted to give us something different for Christmas to make up for his not coming home that year. He didn’t have a lot of money, being a student, but decided that, if at all possible, he would buy us a digital photo frame. He researched the available options and read several reviews. Then, from amongst those in his budget, he chose the Mustek PF-A702B.
One or two of the photos looked a little strange, but we quickly realised that this was because the format of the frame - 16x9 ratio - was not the same as our normal print ratio. The effect was of a made-for-TV film ‘stretched’ to fit a wide-screen television. Happily, however, one of the buttons on the top allowed us to adjust this, enabling us to see the photos as they were meant to be.
