“The new S730 Digital Picture Frame offers exciting new ways to interact with your picture collection,” says Phil Scott, Worldwide Director of Marketing, Digital Capture and Devices and Vice President, Consumer Digital Group. “Kodak digital picture frames have long led the way in enabling consumers to enjoy and show off their pictures and videos without being tied to their computers. The battery-power of the S730 goes further, allowing users to ‘unplug and share,’ putting the frame in people’s hands so everyone can enjoy treasured picture collections and browse through pictures as they would with a photo album. It’s a wonderful way to get your pictures back into your life.”
The Kodak EasyShare S730 Digital Picture Frame further enhances how memories are rekindled through a variety of viewing modes, and the new Picture Finder feature. The viewing modes include full-screen Slideshow, which scrolls through pictures individually. In Slideshow mode, the user can also choose screen views showing both images and either a clock or calendar. The fourth viewing option is Collage mode, which scrolls through an entire collection and shows four randomly selected images at a time.
The new Picture Finder feature is available in all viewing modes, Scott explains. “Picture Finder allows consumers to retrieve and relive memories that in some cases may have been forgotten. When users see a compelling picture in the collage, they can select that picture, touch the Picture Finder control, and the frame automatically retrieves and displays more pictures from that date.”
The Kodak EasyShare S730 Digital Picture Frame will be available throughout Europe for €149 beginning in June, 2009, and in the United States and Canada for $139.00 US beginning September, 2009.
To easily take the new battery-powered frame on the go, Kodak will also offer a stylish case that is perfect for safely transporting S730 Digital Picture Frame. The case will feature a padded interior to cushion the frame during transport, interior pockets for storing power cords and accessories, and a convenient handle. The case will be available for $19.99 US beginning September 2009.
