Off topic question: 3:2 digital photo frame
Mar 9, 2014

My grandmother is a bit miffed that I haven't sent her any pictures of my daughter and I thought that a digital photo frame would be a great idea for her.  What I'm finding though is that the majority have a 4:3 aspect ratio (to conform to P&S cameras I assume).  Others I can find have a 16x10, 16x9, or 15:9 aspect ratio (those 3 plus 4:3) are search criteria on Amazon, but no 3:2).  I can't find one with a 3:2 aspect ratio anywhere.

Now, I don't mind a bit of wasted vertical real estate (extra space there vs. horizontally is better for portrait-oriented photos too) so the 4:3 might be an option as long as the unit doesn't distort the image by stretching it - but that info is hard to find.  Also, screen resolution is important of course.

Can anyone recommend a very good (but not insanely expensive) digital photo frame?


Oh - I couldn't really determine where to put this thread so I figured a forum where the cameras take pictures in a 3:2 format would be best.  Mods, if it's better somewhere else, please feel free to move it.
