  • Excerpt: The HP Photosmart R717 is a serious attempt by a long-time computer manufacturer to make all aspects of digital photography enjoyable. This 6 MP compact camera goes beyond traditional digital photography and basic image editing and integrates itself with a host of online web services, in-camera help functionality, and external printers to bring the full spectrum of digital photography to life. Thoughtful design went into this camera and it shows.

  • Summary: The HP Photosmart R717 continues a recent trend in the digital camera industry of taking an existing successful design, upgrading the megapixel count and releasing it as a brand new model. There really is very little difference between the R717 and its award-winning predecessor, the R707. The main change is the upgrade from 5 to 6 megapixels.

  • Summary: Fuji FinePix F10 , seems slow and slightly dated. It has a medium size 1.8" colour screen, and records videos with sound. The camera is quite compact and very easy to use. Image quality is good, with good detail, good colours, although with some corner softness. The movie mode is slightly better than average recording 320 x 240, 30fps movies with sound.
  • Pros: Good image quality - good colour, HP Adaptive lighting can be very good, Built in red-eye reduction (although it doesn't work for people who wear glasses), Good movie mode, Good Built in help system / image advice etc, Stylish compact camera
  • Cons: Average macro mode, Slightly sluggish, Corner softness / soft images, Some purple fringing, High noise

  • Summary: A continuation of HP’s R series the R717, like its predecessors, stands up to the slurs made against HP cameras. This dinky pocket-sized camera is perfect for a beginner with its fast, clear menus and photo hints. It also includes enough program settings to make sure novices don’t get bored.

Hewlett-Packard Photosmart R717

  • Excerpt: Frère jumeau du R707, le Photosmart R717 est un compact pour les débutants qui a plus d'un atout dans son boitier ! Equipé d'un capteur 6 mégapixels (au lieu de 5 mpxl pour le R707), d'un objectif 39 à 117mm (zoom 3x) et d'un écran LCD 1,8", le R717 surprendra surtout par ses atouts d'ordre technologique. En effet, plein de petites aides ont été glissées à l'interieur de l'appareil, par exemple des informations expliquant chaque réglage et des conseils de prise de vue.
  • Pros: Les aides, Qualité des photos, Balance des blancs et rendu des couleurs
  • Cons: Le bruit, Ergonomie
