Kodak digital picture frames have rapidly become some of the most popular digital photo frames on the market. Kodak has used its long standing market position in imaging and digital SLRs to become a major player in digital picture frames. Kodak digital photo frames have many great and unique features, but the single one that likely stands out when examining them closely is the Quick Touch Border menu system.
Kodak digital picture frames take a innovative approach towards enabling the owner to operate their digital frame. Whereas most other digital LCD frames use a series of buttons or a touch-screen system for control of the digital frame, Kodak has figured out a way to take the best of both methods. The quick touch border menu system has a touch screen feel to it, but keeps the owner's fingers off the digital display screen, which of course is the most valuable part of any digital photo frame.
Kodak EASYSHARE digital photo frames have many of the functions you find in a top grade frame. When you turn on the frame and insert a memory card with digital photos, it begins showing them in a slideshow mode. But like most good frames, Kodak digital photo frames have many configuration settings like picture duration, slide show mode (shuffle, random, etc.), plus many other digital frame setting like 'auto on/off'. Digital frames typically have many other owner driven features, like the transfer of digital photos from a memory card to the frame's internal memory, other configuration settings like date, time, language, and lots more. All these have to be set by the user using a menu system.
The Kodak Quick Touch Border operation system is very elegant in enabling you to operate these functions. Menu functions are driven by a touch strip that surrounds the LCD frame, and essentially blends into the frame's border. This activates a control system that lights up on the display screen, and takes the user through the various menus and features. The touch border is used to reach sub-menus and functions, turn functions on/off, and configures the desired settings for the frame.
The brilliance of the Quick Touch Border system is that it that it blends tech with style. Your fingers stay off the LCD screen, which after all is displaying your colorful, clear pictures. The touch border strip is integrated directly into the picture's frame. Kodak frames still give the user the high tech feel of a touch screen system common with so many other user applications today, which makes operating these highly configurable gadgets seems incredibly easy.
You'll find digital picture frames from other manufacturers with control systems of all different types: buttons, levers, touch displays screens, even remote controls. Each has their advantages and disadvantages, and most of them work perfectly well. There are many great digital photo frames available that don't have Kodak's menu system. However the Quick Touch Border system from Kodak is definitely unique, and shows real innovation from the product development team responsible for display frames at Kodak. It's also proving to be a big hit with consumers as well.
