HP Photosmart R967 Digital Camera Review

HP Photosmart R967
Lets see what can this camera do: Action, Aperture priority, Auto (default), Beach, Document, Landscape, Manual mode, My mode, Night portrait, Night scenery, Panorama left, Panorama right (But only up to 5 picture, so Im not very pleased with that), Portrait, Shutter priority, Snow, Steady Photo, Sunset, Theatre… Theatre? I haven’t seen this feature elsewhere.

Adaptive Lighting, Adaptive light bracketing, AE bracketing, AE metering, auto focus area, colour bracketing, contrast, EV compensation, Auto Red-eye Removal (Really? Yes: The HP tool automatically recognises red-eye and lets you remove it immediately via your camera’s LCD screen.), saturation, sharpness, white balance.

The lens focal range is approximately 0.5 m to infinity (wide), 0.6 m to infinity (telephoto), 0.10 to 1.0 m (macro wide). For the light exposure control: centre-weighted Auto Exposure (AE) metering (default), spot AE Metering, average AE Metering. Colour control seems satisfying: full colour (default), black & white, sepia, colour bracketing, plus that it adds artistic effects and borders right in the camera. You can make up to 2 shots with self timer (User selectable: 2, 5, 10, 20 or 30 sec).

Photosmarts R967 patented technology analyses your photos then offers tips and suggestions on how you might do things differently for even better results next time. This is great for someone who wont complicate his life with outside of the box shooting. If you intend to dive deeper into photography, I recommend a more flexible camera, with more unlimited possibilities.

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".
