HP Photosmart 945 Digital Camera Camera

 

HP's Photosmart 945 is a camera that's difficult to pigeonhole. Its large black body, 5.1-megapixel imaging, and 8X optical zoom lens might put it in the class of such advanced cameras as the Minolta DiMage A1 or the Fujifilm FinePix S7000, which cost...

The camera is marginally acceptable for sports or action shooting. We noticed significant shutter delay whenever the shutter button was fully pressed in one stroke. However, if you lock the exposure and focus by pushing the shutter button halfway down,...

HP Photosmart 945 review

 

HP Photosmart 945

Wide zoom range; easy to use; innovative Digital Flash feature.

Very slow EVF and LCD updates; no support for uncompressed files or an external flash; dock costs extra.

Its 8X zoom aside, this 5-megapixel camera rates as ho-hum for both its intended enthusiast audience and everyday shooters.

HP PhotoSmart 945

 

When it was first announced at the end of 2003, the HP Photosmart 945 was at the cutting edge of digital camera design, with a 5 megapixel sensor, Adaptive Lighting Technology that balanced the contrast between darkness and light, an 8x optical zoo

The HP Photosmart 945 is a digital camera that promises a lot and delivers on some of those promises, but not all. For every great feature that the camera offers, there seems to be another one that isn't so well implemented. The extensive Help system...

Digital Cameras - Hewlett Packard Photosmart 945 Digital Camera Review, Information, Specifications

 

I found my view of the HP 945 evolving quite a bit as I worked with it. My initial reaction was pretty negative - It just seemed bulky and clunky, and so sloooow in the rapid-fire environment of our test studio. Looking at its images up-close on the...

The front of the 945 is dominated by the large lens and handgrip. When powered on, the lens extends approximately one and a half inches from the camera front. A plastic lens cap clamps onto the lens for protection, and tethers to the camera body with a...
