HP PhotoSmart R927 review

 

Is there more to the R927 than small size and large price?

Robust build

Expensive

A camera for those who want to produce well-exposed images, ready to print, without a PC

HP Photosmart R927 8.2Mp compact digital camera

 

The HP Photosmart R927 has a big 3in LCD and a metal body that feels sturdy. It is the company's first 8Mp camera, and though you'll rarely need all that resolution to make a very big enlargement, the HP Photosmart R927 does give you the freedom to...

The HP Photosmart R927 is a sturdy point-and-shoot, with a big LCD, that takes great shots. However, battery life is very low.

HP - Photosmart R927

 

If ever there were a case of somebody soldiering on in the face of scant recognition, it's HP and its cameras. While well regarded for printers, scanners, PCs, servers, in fact most areas of IT, its ...

The Photosmart R927 manages to be versatile and easy to use at the same time; not an easy feat. It could do with more internal memory than the 32MB supplied, or an SD card included in the box, but overall it's a quality compact that you should at least...

HP's 8 megapixel Photosmart R927 reviewed

 

It's still seems a bit silly to be shooting 8 megapixel shots out of such a compact camera, but we're not going to stand in your way, and neither will HP with their flagship compact offering, the Photosmart R927. Besides the 8 megapixel CCD, the camera...

Photosmart R927 Digital Camera

 

The HP Photosmart R927 ($399 as of 6/15/06) has a big (3-inch) LCD and a metal body that feels sturdy. It is the company's first 8-megapixel camera, and though you'll rarely need all that resolution to make a very big enlargement, it does give you the...

Big LCD, easy-to-use menus Panorama mode with in-camera stitching

Manual focus can be frustrating Panorama stitching can be slow

The R927's least appealing attribute is its battery life. Here, the camera earned the lowest score of recently tested point-and-shoots, taking just 114 shots--less than half the average--on one battery charge. If you plan to go crazy with the onboard...

HP Photosmart R927

 

Shed those camera pounds and create Picasso-worthy photos with the HP Photosmart R927.

Large, 3-inch screen. On-screen image advice. 17 shooting modes and 12 artistic effects. Very good boot-up time.

Noticeable shutter lag.

you can also record 640-by-480 (vga) video with sound at 24 frames per second and even zoom in while recording. when i shot a couple of clips, the video displayed great quality, but the sound quality was average for a still camera.— continue reading

HP Photosmart R927 review

 

main content Most digital cameras come with the assumption that the user has at least some knowledge of photography--but not HP's Photosmart R927. Sure, it's the 8-megapixel flagship of the company's camera line, but with a menu and help system that's...

Extensive help menus and features for beginners; oversize LCD; attractive and sturdy.

Poor image quality; sluggish performance.

With its big 3-inch LCD and a menu system full of helpful tips, the HP Photosmart R927 is a decent camera for someone new to digital cameras or to photography in general. Pixel-peepers looking for the best image quality, though, should steer clear.

Hewlett Packard Photosmart R927 Digital Camera - Review

 

Long known for its printers, Hewlett Packard has been slowly building a reputation for making stylish, easy-to-use digital cameras that come packed with features. The latest flagship to be launched in HP's Photosmart camera line is the R927 which not...

Image quality not up to snuff for a camera with an 8.2 megapixel sensor, Lens produced images with overall softness and noticeable barrel distortion at the wide-angle, Images looked flat and lacked crisp color and dynamic range, Caucasian skin tones...

But while HP's Photosmart series has been known for great ease-of-use and functionality, image quality has never been much to talk about on these models. Does the HP R927 with its 8.2 megapixel sensor have what it takes to change this reputation? Read...
