  • Excerpt: The 8.2-megapixel HP Photosmart R927 (street: $375) is a good-looking camera. With a rounded edge, brushed silver face, a curvy indented finger grip below the shutter button, and a big 3-inch LCD, it also feels great in your hand.

  • Conclusion: Unfortunately you can't judge this book by its cover. Using a car analogy - from an exterior design point of view it's an Audi, but it's got the engine of a Gremlin. It seems that a lot of energy and thought were put into some elements of the HP Photosmart R927 design: build quality, physical...
  • Pros: Looks cool - handsome elegant design, Big LCD display, Good graphic user interface - especially scrolling images, Nice button layout, Fun options, Can easily attach audio clip to image

  • Excerpt: The HP Photosmart R927 ($399) is a compact 8.1 Megapixel camera filled to the brim with unique features. When I say "features", I'm not talking about the R927's 3X zoom lens or huge 3-inch LCD. Rather, I'm talking about the various bells and whistles on the camera, many of them exclusive to HP.
  • Pros: Compact, stylish metal body, Enormous 3 inch LCD display; good low light visibility, Very good performance in most areas, Full manual controls, AF-assist lamp; good low light focusing, Adaptive Lighting feature brightens up dark areas of your photos (though noise levels go up even more), Tons of ...
  • Cons: Above average noise and purple fringing, ISO setting was ignored in shutter priority mode, LCD blackout during continuous shooting, Manual focus feature could be better, Movie mode frame rate below average, No optical viewfinder, Battery charging and photo transfer to a PC requires dock; no USB 2...

Digitaltrends
28 March 2006
  • Conclusion: Anyone looking for a compact, attractive 8MP point-and-shoot digicam should give this camera serious consideration. Although the R927 had some flaws, the large LCD screen, the great menus, the built-in special effects and–most important–the photos it took put it on the plus side of the ledger.
  • Pros: Huge high-quality 3-inch LCD screen; excellent software bundle, onscreen menus
  • Cons: Slow response saving large files; no video output; no printed owner's manual
