DP Review

  • Conclusion: First impressions of the R707 are overwhelmingly positive - it is beautifully built, feels 'right' in the hand and is responsive enough for most every day photography. HP's new 'Real Life Technologies' - from the extensive in-camera help to the red-eye removal and image advisor - offer a real...
  • Pros: Good resolution, clean images with few processing artifacts and no over-sharpening, Vivid yet natural colors, Efficient noise reduction - even at high ISO and with long exposures, Excellent auto white balance in all but the most extreme situations, Fast startup, fast zoom and very responsive in g...
  • Cons: Only two aperture settings, An ISO 50 setting would have been nice to cut down the need for noise reduction, Even the best quality setting uses quite heavy JPEG compression, Some fall-off of sharpness in the corners, especially at widest aperture, Occasional focus problems in low light at tele se...

HP Photosmart R707 Camera with R-Series Dock Review

MyMac
10 August 2004
  • Conclusion: Besides looking nice, the dock will allow users to instantly share photos via HP’s Instant Share technology (Mac users have a better choice with iPhoto) and display pictures in the camera on your television. I found this a very nice feature, although one I have little use for.

  • Excerpt: If you think about innovation in digital photography, you probably think of Canon, Nikon, Fuji, Olympus, etc. But the truth is that HP is one of the few companies coming up with new and useful features for their cameras, instead of just dropping a higher resolution CCD into the same tired body this...

HP R707 digital camera

Pocket Lint
31 January 2005
  • Conclusion: The camera offered fast start up, fast zoom and fast save times to the internal memory. The two complaints we have are firstly the save time to the SD card as it wasn't very fast. Take three or four shots in succession and you'll have a camera that is out of action for some time as the buffer works...
  • Pros: Easy to use, stylish, Red-eye fixer built-in, image advisor
  • Cons: Can’t switch between internal memory and optional SD without removing the SD card
