>> Hi, I'm David Conroy executive editor for CNET.com and this is the Kodak Easy Share EX 811. It's not the sexiest looking photo frame in the world. It comes in basic black. Kodak says it will offer some optional face plates eventually, but right now black is it. It's fairly straightforward, but what's interesting about it is that it has built in wireless capabilities. So, you can hook this into your wireless home network and stream photos from both your PC and more importantly Kodak's easy share gallery online. That's really the main differentiating point of this frame. Found it pretty easy to set up the wireless connectivity. We also like the interface on the frame. The frame has 128 megabytes of built in memory which is pretty good and there's also slots for adding memory cards. On top of that you can also plug in a USB thumb drive and play images off the thumb drive or transfer them to the frame. One thing we notice is that because the frame is 800 by 480 it does crop your images slightly when the photos appear on your frame. Frame comes with a small remote you have to be standing fairly close to the frame to use it. There's a sensor on the front, but it is nice to be able to control the frame as you would TV. A lot of times these little remotes are pretty easy to lose and we appreciate the fact that there is a little remote catty on back of the frame so you won't lose it. Another notable feature about the frame is that it's able to play back video as well as MP3s. There are two small speakers built into the frame. They don't sound all that good, but it's nice to be able to play back those movies you shot with your digital still camera and hear them as well. Overall we really like this frame. It's got good image quality, a good feature set and the ability to wirelessly tie into your online gallery is really key. That said, if you don't want that sort of added feature and you just want a basic frame that shows off your photos this is probably not going to be it because you do pay a little bit of a premium for those extra features. I'm David Conroy and that's the Kodak Easy Share EX 811. ^M00:01:56 [ Music ]
At CES 2007, we take a look at the Kodak EasyShare Digital Picture Frames. The 8-inch and 10-inch frames come with Wi-Fi and six swappable faceplates, and they require no monthly subscription fees.
The Kodak EasyShare Z5010 is an easy-to-use 21x zoom camera that offers good snapshot quality and an excellent value.
Kodak's Wi-Fi-capable EasyShare One is a below-average camera with superior photo-sharing skills.
The Kodak EasyShare C533 and C643 take decent photos, but their build quality and minimalist feature sets make them strictly bargain cameras.
The Kodak EasyShare P880 is an 8-megapixel, point-and-shoot camera. Compared to other point-and-shoot digital cameras on the market, it is expensive at around $545. Includes Kodak EasyShare software.
Run away! The EasyShare One/6MP's Wi-Fi photo sharing doesn't compensate for its myriad usability and quality issues.
The Kodak EasyShare Z980 has a lot to offer--including a wide-angle 24x zoom lens--but you'll have to overlook its clunky design and noisy photos.
Our editors give you a sneak peek at the Kodak EasyShare One from the floor at CES.
This slick little camera (and its even slicker dock) makes short work of the entire picture-taking process but doesn't soar above the crowd in image quality.
