HDMS S1D Digital Photo Album from Sony

Wondering how and where to store all those digital photos that you have scattered throughout your hard drive? Sony believes it has the answer for you. The HDMS-S1D Digital Photo Album features an 80GB hard drive (which should hold up to 50, 000 high res photos) and connects to a High Def TV via HDMI.

Your photos can be transferred to the HDMS-S1D via flash memory card formats, CD, DVD, USB or Ethernet. Once loaded onto the system, you can manage your various collections using the supplied remote and system interface.

Photos can be organized by date, special occasions such as birthdays and travel (using pre-selected icons), or into as many as 3,000 different photo albums– enough for every major family milestone.

The included x-Pict Story HD software creates professional quality slideshows means you do not need to use a separate PC. The x-ScrapBook application uses face detection and event-clustering technology to make scrapbook-style layouts of photos with common traits.

The HDMS-S1D Digital Photo Album will retail for about $400
