It's a digital photo frame. No, it's a photo printer. Wrong, it's both! Sony's S-frame DPP-F700, which will be available in the U.S. early January 2010 (sorry holiday shoppers!)for about $200, is a dye-sub photo printer with a 7-inch wide-screen 800x480-resolution LCD.

A matte-black panel to the right of the screen hides backlit keys for navigation and printing. It looks a little weird to have it hanging off the side there. This is really a printer first and a photo frame second.

If you don't want to touch the onboard controls, there's a small remote control that can access all features.

The paper tray slips off, the LCD folds flat and you can stand it up. It's actually a pretty good way to hide that you have a photo printer on your desk...

...as long as you don't mind your photo frame havin' a little junk in its trunk.

Photos can be viewed through a USB connection or via most memory cards, including Memory Stick PRO Duo, SD/SDHC, MMC, CF, and xD.

Prints are 4x6 inches at 300dpi. It's a three-step process that requires clearance for the tray out front and nearly the same amount of space for the print to go out the back and then back through and out the front. A single print took under a minute and the results were decent.

I told you it took all those cards. There's also 1GB of internal memory so you can have up to 2,000 photos ready to print. The F700 supports JPEG, TIFF, and BMP image file formats. No Sony raw format, though.

A Creative Print mode lets users print a photo calendar and choose from one of 30 templates. Users can also create a photo ID and a layout print with more than one image on a print.
