HP Photosmart M417 Digital Camera Review

Digital Camera Review
20 July 2005
  • Excerpt: Introduction When I got my hands on the HP Photosmart M417 , I was anxious to try out some of HP's "technologies" that they've included on this camera. The camera features Adaptive Lighting technology from HP. The Adaptive Lighting feature, when enabled, captures two versions of an image, one exposed for the highlighted areas and one exposed to bring out details in the shadows.

Digicam Review
2 November 2006
  • Summary: Conclusion: The HP Photosmart M417 offers very good value for money as one of the cheapest 5 megapixel digital cameras currently available - it has an easy to use menu system and built in help which you may find useful. However, I found the camera to be frustratingly slow at times, and rarely wanted to take the camera with me in case I missed the shot.
  • Pros: One of the cheapest 5 megapixel digital cameras currently available., Okay images outside (good colour)., Built in help., Built in demo tells you about the camera., Takes AA batteries., Built in red-eye reduction.
  • Cons: Frustratingly slow. (Processing... Loading...), Very poor at focusing in low-light., No Delete button on the back of the camera (it's in a menu), No photo information (in playback), Move images to card failed for one image (unfortunately it isn't a 'copy to card' option), No speaker on camera for video playback, Screen shows psuedo widescreen view in photo mode, but normal sized picture in playback mode!, Poor macro mode, Only 16mb of memory provided with the camera, ...

Röviden: HP PhotoSmart M417 és M517

10 September 2007
  • Summary: A Hewlett-Packard kis időkülönbséggel jelentette be az 5 Mpixeles PhotoSmart M417 és M517 modelljeit. A két változat között nincs túl sok különbség, jobbára csak a belső memória méretében és a hátsó LCD nagyságában különböznek, így mi is egyszerre mutatjuk be őket.

10 June 2005
  • Conclusion: De PhotoSmart M417 is de camera voor de absolute instapper, de beginnende pretfotograaf, die voornamelijk liever geen computer gebruikt en soms zelf wil afdrukken. Als je niet sterk uitvergroot, heb je geen last van zijn kleine beetje kleurschifting. Zijn adviesverkoopprijs ligt op 199 euro en op internet gaat hij al rond 150 euro over de virtuele toonbank, dus dit is een uitstekende prijs-prestatie.
  • Pros: 5 megapixel, erg goedkoop, adaptive lighting
  • Cons: iets kleurschifting, niet echt compact
