HP R707 digital camera

 

HP isn't a name you normally associate with digital photography. So what makes the printer and scanner company think it's got what it takes to go up against the big traditional brands such as Olympus, Canon or Nikon?

Easy to use, stylish, Red-eye fixer built-in, image advisor

Can’t switch between internal memory and optional SD without removing the SD card

The camera offered fast start up, fast zoom and fast save times to the internal memory. The two complaints we have are firstly the save time to the SD card as it wasn't very fast. Take three or four shots in succession and you'll have a camera that is...

Great menu system, innovative design

Low battery life, slow to process images, average image quality

HP Photosmart R707 review

 

Intro Looking like a million bucks, the Photosmart R707 was the first to break the mold in HP's formerly boring design scheme. This 5-megapixel camera, with its 3X zoom, doesn't offer many manual exposure controls, though it provides several...

Attractive, compact, and portable; excellent in-camera help system; some unique and useful features.

Average image quality; slow recharge with bundled charger.

Although a great camera for newbies who need their hands held, the R707's photos aren't too impressive.
