While manufacturers have managed to cram larger LCD displays onto digital cameras, they’re still far too small for sharing photos with a group of people. But as long as you have access to a relatively large TV, sharing your shots becomes easy with this SanDisk Photo Album. It looks and works like a large multi-format card reader, but can also be connected to your TV for viewing photos.
It includes slots for CompactFlash, Memory Stick, Memory Stick PRO, SmartMedia, xD, SD and MMC cards as well as a USB port for flash drives. (Which is also used to connect it to your PC.) It supports JPEG files up to 16 megapixels and will not only resize them on the fly so they fit on the screen, but using the included remote you can also zoom in to any part of the image. If photos aren’t your thing, the Photo Album also plays MP3s and has limited video capabilities with support for 8fps MPEG-1 files.
