HP Photosmart R837 - Sensitivity|
According to Mark Goldstein: "Night shots without flash inevitably reveal noise – and a top light sensitivity setting of ISO 400 isn't going to win any prizes – but at least at this maximum setting such artifacts aren't going to prove any real problem either. Camera shake is perhaps inevitable, though I can see the R837's target audience - families basically - relying on the traditional flash in the main. Pixel fringing is readily visible if you're actually looking for it, but easily overlooked if you're not."

Mark continues: "As for HP's in-camera editing: the 'pet eye fix' was a variable tool turning my flash-bleached cat's eyes a cartoon-ish black instead of natural green, while the camera failed to detect human red eye when it was readily visible. That said, the ability to zero in on and zap any spots or facial moles on the fly will appeal to any teenager. So think fun more than anything. So, to sum up, image quality is no better or worse than the competition at this level - in fact it's exactly what you'd expect, so in that sense there's no disappointment or nasty surprises."

Mark Goldstein started his very active website PhotographyBLOG in January 2003. At first the one and only purpose was to let this site function as one of those popular web logs with Photography as main topic. But as we all know Photography is a pretty big subject to publish about so Mark decided to focus on some hot key points like mentioning all new introductions, reviews, reports from events like PMA and Photokina, sharing some impressive and creative photos and Mark's sole perspective of his feeling about this fascinating world of Digital Imaging. Mark is based in the UK, but his eagle-eye focuses global.
