HP Photosmart M527 Digital Camera Review

HP Design Gallery: Add artistic effects directly on your camera – no PC or software needed. Make your photos look like cartoons, sketches or antique photographs. Add fun borders and tint photos to black-and-white, sepia and more.
HP automatic in-camera red-eye removal: Remove red-eye without having to transfer photos to your computer. This unique, easy-to-use tool automatically recognises red-eye and lets you remove it immediately via your camera’s LCD screen.
HP Photosmart Premier software for Windows and Macintosh included and HP Photosmart 6220 Digital Camera Dock connectivity. There is also a on-camera button to easily order and share photos on Snapfish using HP Photosmart Express. You can add wireless capabilities by purchasing the HP Photosmart 6222 Wireless Dock Base to share your photos via a wireless home network.
Photosmart M527 is a very light compact point and shoot, suited for vacation and snapshot photography, with almost no manual features but a lot of specific HP interesting key features like the ones described above. It takes great pictures that can be enlarged and are clearly focused, but the LCD screen can hardly be seen in bright sunlight.

I started photography as a hobby in 2005, during college. My passion slowly became a more important part of my life since 2008. Because of using a combination of my photographic knowledge, with those of internet marketing, I like to call myself a "photomarketer".
