HP Photosmart cameras and printers introduced : HP today announced a new line of digital photography solutions with features and functionality that greatly enhance the photography experience for consumers. The company also reported results from a new research study confirming that consumers believe HP Photosmart printers deliver the best overall photo printing experience. Today’s product introductions include several affordably priced printers, including the first and only compact photo printer on the market capable of storing more than 4,000 photos the HP Photosmart A716 Compact Photo Printer. HP also debuted its first touch-screen LCD on the HP Photosmart D7360 Photo Printer for an easy, kiosk-like printing experience at home.|
HP Photosmart R967 - 10 megapixel|
The 10-megapixel HP Photosmart R967 Digital Camera leads the lineup, featuring a 3-inch image display, durable metal body and sleek silver design. Both the HP Photosmart R967 and the new HP Photosmart R827 Digital Camera feature a new innovation called HP steady photo anti-shake mode that utilizes high-sensitivity ISO with HP imaging technology to help prevent blurred photos. Other features on these cameras include larger LCD display screens, greater megapixal resolution, and an on-camera button to easily order and share photos on Snapfish.
HP Photosmart M627 and E427
HP also added a new effect to its popular Design Gallery that allows users to turn a photo into a pencil drawing using the edges in the image - the result is similar to an illustration or line art drawing. First introduced earlier this year, the HP Design Galley lets consumers add creative touches such as borders, artistic effects and color tints to their photos with the touch of one button on the back of the camera without using sophisticated software on a PC. Rounding out HP’s digital camera introductions are the easy-to-use HP Photosmart E427 Digital Camera with 6-megapixel resolution and 5x digital zoom and the ultra-compact HP Photosmart M627 Digital Camera featuring 7-megapixels and 24x total zoom - 3x optical, 8x digital. With today’s introduction, HP now has the broadest portfolio of cameras with in-camera red-eye removal.
HP Photosmart A716 photo printer - Memory
HP’s new portable photo studios and compact photo printers are packed with features that make it simpler for consumers to capture and print brilliant photos almost anywhere. Among the featured enhancements, the HP Photosmart compact photo printer line includes a Photo Fix button that uses HP Real Life technologies to automatically remove red-eye, sharpen blurred images, and improve brightness, color and contrast. Delivering the power of a PC in a printer, HP Photosmart A716 Compact Photo Printer is the only printer of its kind that stores photos - more than 4,000 - with four gigabytes of internal memory.
HP Photosmart A616 compact photo printer - Image size
Consumers can easily print 4 x 6-inch, 5 x 7-inch and panorama photos almost anywhere imaginable - parties, reunions, sporting events, family gatherings or vacations. HP also added the ultra-light and portable HP Photosmart A616 Compact Photo Printer and HP Photosmart A516 Compact Photo to its compact photo printer line. These printers enable consumers to conveniently print true-to-life 4 x 6-inch Passport photos that resist fading for generations.
HP Photosmart A430 Portable Photo Studio - Battery
The HP Photosmart A430 Portable Photo Studio series is an integrated solution featuring a compact photo printer, built-in dock and an HP M- or R-series digital camera - with the option to purchase the photo studio printer separately from the digital camera. This printer has practically everything a digital photographer needs to capture and print 4 x 6-inch photos in three easy steps - snap, dock and print. Recent third-party testing showed that three out of four consumers preferred the HP Photosmart A430 Portable Photo Studio over Kodak’s Easyshare Series 3/C310 for the best overall printing experience. The stylish and compact design of these printers coupled with the optional battery makes these printers truly portable. For even greater portability, HP has added a built-in handle to the HP Photosmart A716 and A616 Compact Photo Printers as well as to the HP Photosmart A430 Portable Photo Studio series.
