HP Photosmart M22 - Digital Camera

 

The HP Photosmart M22 has a bargain price tag, but does the old adage that you get what you pay for ring true?

HP PhotoSmart M22 digital camera

 

The M22 is a sweet little digital camera pitched at the entry-level end of the market but with a fair specification and with good build quality. An all-metal weatherproofed body is the standout feature while in terms of build; particularly at this...

Great build and petite, stylish design with all metal weatherproofed bodywork, easy handling, and it’s a cinch to use

Battery life, image detail is

A weatherproof, all-metal digital compact for a penny less than £90 is pretty much a bargain by pretty much any standards, here the bonus of weatherproofing makes it particularly ideal for those out and about types among you. And while the M22's larger...

HP Photosmart M22 Digital Camera Review

 

The HP M22 is most definitely a camera for beginners.

Compact, easy carrying size ; Very good price ; Easy to use out of the box ; Menus and buttons well designed for all types of finger sizes

Larger pictures take time to load when viewing on the camera ; Limited internal RAM for photos ; Sometimes a delay when taking pictures

The HP M22 is most definitely a camera for beginners. Starting at under $150 (at many places online), it is a great camera to have if you are not too into photography but want to take some good pictures

HP Photosmart M22

 

If you need a little handholding, the HP Photosmart M22 is an attractive camera, especially if you have a penchant for panoramas.

Images have very good color ; extensive help features ; easy-to-use panorama mode ; low price

No zoom ; small LCD ; no optical viewfinder ; sluggish performance ; images have noise

HP claims the all-metal body is weather-resistant, and the camera does have a sturdy feel (though the tripod mount is plastic). At a little over four ounces (without batteries), it should be a perfect pocket camera. Unfortunately, it's next to...
