Kodak EasyShare Digital Photo Frames: New M Series, Wireless, Customizable Faceplates

Kodak, the American favorite (once upon a time, anyway), has a full lineup of digital photo frames. They are a good option overall and we love the customizable faceplates. There's dozens of new designs (especially for the new M series) that you can mix and match -- wood and metals, matte borders and even a shadowbox option -- go to the Kodak site to see what we mean. You can try Kodak Outlet for deals on refurbished frames -- otherwise Amazon's usually rocking the best price. Try to excuse Kodak's crappy product photography. If you want frames that make you drool, try Ality.

Kodak EasyShare Wireless Frames

EX811 Kodak EasyShare 8-inch Wireless Digital Frame (Amazon $159.98)kodak_wirelessframe.pngThe wireless frames come in 8-inch and 10-inch sizes. These frames are packed with useful features but the coolest thing is Picture Mail through Kodak Gallery. You can send your photos to other Kodak Wireless photo frame owners and receive new photos from people using Kodak Gallery. If you don't use Kodak Gallery, this feature is of course useless.

SV710 Kodak EasyShare 7-inch Multimedia Frame (Amazon $79.99)kodak_multimediaframe.jpgMultimedia frames range from 7-inch to 10-inch sizes. "Multimedia" means that the frames handle photos, videos and music. The "M" models are new, featuring Kodak's Quick Touch Border -- basically it's a touch screen that isn't where your image is so you don't end up with fingerprints on it. You can also create multimedia shows that incorporate photos, video and music. The "SV" models are a less of an investment but still jammed with key features.
