Digital Foci, Inc. announced today that it’s shipping the new Pearl White “Wedding” Version of its popular Photo Book, a portable digital photo album with an 8-inch 800×600 color digital LCD screen and 4GB of internal memory. Available May 21st (with pre-orders starting now), Photo Book in Pearl White is the perfect digital wedding album, with a sleek design encased in a soft leather-like case for an elegant photo album that makes an attractive first impression, matching perfectly with wedding themes.
Photo Book is an easy and innovative way for people to enjoy and share their wedding photos with friends and family. With Photo Book, users have easy access to their photos in a portable album that can be brought along to enjoy and share anywhere. Ideal for passing around while sitting on the sofa and at family gatherings, Photo Book can run for over 2.5 hours on its internal battery, giving you the convenience to share your photos in any setting. Compared to digital photo frames, the internal battery on Photo Book makes it very easy to handle, eliminating the need to deal with messy AC power cables.
Introduced in 2009 as a “Professional” version, the Black Photo Book has been consistently awarded PMA Retailer’s “Hot Pick” (at PMA 2009 in Las Vegas, PMA Canada 2009 and PMA Australia 2009). As predicted by these panels of retail buyers with expertise and knowledge of the photo industry, Photo Book was one of the hottest sellers of the 2009 holiday season.
Photo Book lets consumers organize their photos into different album collections and choose a specific album to view. The “Photo Album View” displays each folder as a separate photo album, showing its folder name and a preview image of the first photo in the album. Brides and photographers can easily organize their photos into different albums by event. Creating albums named “Engagement,” “Ceremony,” and “Reception,” will makes it easy select a particular album to view. “Photo Thumbnail View” lets you browse through the thumbnails of the photos in a selected photo album. In addition to running a full screen photo slideshow with adjustable time intervals, you also have the option of running the slideshow with a realistic page-turning effect. It is just like you were flipping through an actual photo album. You can also add music to play in the background along with your slideshow.
To start using Photo Book, simply load photos to internal memory directly from a memory card (CF, SD, SDHC, MMC, xD-Picture Card, Memory Stick, and MSPRO), by USB flash drive, or from your computer. With the included USB cable, you can connect to your computer to easily transfer photos, video, and music to Photo Book.
Perfect for wedding photographers to professionally display thousands of photos in a sleek portable portfolio, Photo Book supports RAW images from a wide selection of DSLRs, in addition to JPEG, BMP, GIF, and TIF image formats. Photographers can organize their photos into different collections, and choose a specific collection to show depending on their audience.
