With online auctions, almost everything finds a new owner, from the ski jacket that's got too small to the duplicate wedding gift or even jewelry from an ex. The basic requirement for a successful and profitable auction is a winning image. This all depends on good lighting with as few shadows as possible. Using the new LED ring light from Hama, this can also be achieved without difficulty even with small digital compact cameras.

The flexible holding arm is attached to the tripod socket of the camera so the ring light can be optimally positioned in front of the lens. 12 LEDs that can be switched on in two levels of brightness ensure constant and, most importantly, shadow-free lighting. That way, even small details have a big impact and help the sale.

"High End” Digital Picture Frames with Bluetooth from Hama

Straight from your mobile to your desktop.

The “High End” digital picture frames from Hama receive the files to be displayed via a wireless Bluetooth connection – thanks to the 128 MB of integrated memory, pictures are transmitted from your mobile phone or digital camera straight to the 11 or 8 inch screen and displayed immediately. A resolution of 800 x 480 or 800 x 600 pixels, a contrast ratio of 250:1 or 400:1 and a brightness of 380 or 250 candela per square meter result in pin-sharp pictures.

Of course the digital picture frames also work with data received via the two built-in USB ports or read from any standard memory card by means of the integrated card readers. In addition to pictures and videos, you can also play music in MP3 format by using the integrated loudspeakers or by connecting headphones. In this way, you can jazz up the photos from your last holiday in Jamaica with an appropriate reggae sound.

In addition to the standard stills, the picture frames also provide a zoom function, image rotation, a slide show option and a split screen mode – all of which can also be comfortably selected using the supplied remote controls.  Little details like a clock, a calendar, an alarm, adjustable image display duration, file descriptions and a folder mode complete the technology of the presentation geniuses.
