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...

Sleek but solid design, Large 3-inch LCD display with okay resolution and extra-wide viewing angle, Relatively lightweight, Good speed for a consumer camera with very little shutter lag when you pre-focus, Helpful HP Real Life technologies include...

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...

HP Photosmart R927

 

As you can see, the camera dock has ports for power and USB. There's no video out port on the camera or the dock, and the only way to get one is to pony up for the $70 R-series camera dock (anyone seeing a pattern here?), which also includes a remote...

If you want a camera that's easy to use and takes photos best suited for small prints then I'd recommend looking at the Photosmart R927. If you're going to be making larger prints, the noise and purple fringing will be an issue, so I'd probably look at...

Camera Test: HP Photosmart R927

 

The 8.2-megapixel HP Photosmart R927 (street: $375) is a good-looking camera. With a rounded edge, brushed silver face, a curvy indented finger grip below the shutter button, and a big 3-inch LCD, it also feels great in your hand. The buttons and 3x...

The camera is easy to use and the printed pictures are crystal clear (sharp and vivid). Just a little bit noisy if enlarged. Special features for this digital compact camera are quite a number: AE bracketing, HP Adaptive Demosiac, HP Adaptive Lighting,...

Hewlett-Packard Photosmart R927 Pro Review

 

I really wanted to like this camera, probably because I like local, San Francisco Bay Area companies and I've visited HP in the past and found their employees to be both friendly and very intelligent. My first impression when I opened the box was...

Looks cool - handsome elegant design, Big LCD display, Good graphic user interface - especially scrolling images, Nice button layout, Fun options, Can easily attach audio clip to image

Big lcd has poor image quality and makes the camera too big, Constant auto focus sound is annoying, Poor image quality, Grainy images even at ISO 100, Big and heavy for a point-and-shoot camera, Poorly designed battery door, Mandatory camera dock for...

Unfortunately you can't judge this book by its cover. Using a car analogy - from an exterior design point of view it's an Audi, but it's got the engine of a Gremlin. It seems that a lot of energy and thought were put into some elements of the HP...
