Product Research


Overview: The Kodak Pulse Digital Picture Frame allows you to display digital pictures (JPEG, Exif 2.2 files) stored on Memory Cards, a USB Flash Drive, the unit's internal 512 MB memory, or wirelessly from a variety of sources via a Wi-Fi network.

7" LCD Screen: The Pulse is equipped with a 7" diagonal 4:3 LCD screen with a resolution of 800 x 480 pixels. The screen has LED backlighting and Kodak Color Science technology to give you high quality images.

Wi-Fi Compatible: The Pulse is Wi-Fi-compatible (802.11b/g), which allows you to add pictures wirelessly through a free online account. You can assign an email address to your frame, and receive pictures via email from your computer or mobile phone, or from your friends. Pictures can be added from Facebook and Kodak Gallery accounts as well, allowing you to view them as soon as they're posted. You are automatically alerted as soon as you get new pictures from friends or family.

Auto Power On/Off: The Pulse is configured to automatically turn on in the mornings and turn off in the evenings to save energy. Through your online account, you can change the on/off times, or disable this feature altogether.

512MB Internal Memory: The Pulse's 512MB internal memory allows transfer, storage and playback of your digital photos. You can copy images from an inserted memory card onto the unit's internal memory so you can return the memory card to your digital camera for more photos.

Memory Card Slots: The frame is equipped with two memory card slots that will accommodate several types of memory cards. One memory card slot will accept SD/SDHC Memory cards, MultiMediaCards (MMC), xD-Picture cards, and full-sized Memory Sticks (MS). The other memory card slot will accommodate MS DUO and MS Pro DUO.

USB Port: The Pulse has a USB port on the side of the frame. The Type-A USB port (2.0 High Speed compliant) can be used for inserting a USB Flash drive.

Touch Controls: The Pulse digital picture frame has on-screen touch controls to help you navigate through the available images and set up your frame. Touch controls include Play, Collage, Information, Delete, Copy, Transition Time, Friends, Previous/Next, and Health Check (in case there's a network problem).

Playback Speed/Transitions: You can change how long each picture is displayed, and the type of transition between pictures:

  • 3 Seconds/Wipe: pictures change every 3 seconds with a wipe transition
  • 10 Seconds/Fade: pictures change every 10 seconds with a fade transition
  • 10 Seconds/Zoom & Pan: pictures presented with a slow zooming and panning effect with fading transitions every 10 seconds
  • 1 Minute/Fade: pictures change every 30 seconds with a fade transition
  • 30 Minutes/Fade: pictures change every 30 minutes with a fade transition
  • Smart: pictures change every 3 seconds initially, but if the screen has not been touched, transition times gradually increase, up to 30 minute intervals

Collage: The frame presents a revolving five-picture slide show. Five pictures randomly appear on the screen and change every few seconds. To exit the collage mode, you can touch a picture which will appear full screen.

Copying Images: You can copy pictures from a memory card or USB device to the frame's internal memory. Copying to a memory card or USB device is not supported. Copies added to the frame are automatically resized to a lower resolution (smaller file size). Full resolution is unnecessary for viewing, and quickly fills up the memory.

Deleting Pictures: You can delete pictures from your frame's internal memory, or from an inserted memory card or USB device.

Power Requirements: The Kodak Pulse operates off of standard household current using the supplied AC power adapter (100-240 V AC, 50-60HZ - 5V DC).

Is the Pulse the perfect digital photo frame?

Written By RainyDayInterns, Boston, MA on Wednesday, August 18, 2010

This may be the best digital frame on the market today....the killer feature is that images can be sent directly to the frame via its unique email address.
Unlike other annual fee or subscription required.
