Other features include a 2-inch LCD, 3x optical zoom, 'fast shot' mode plus HP Instant Share, which allows you tag photos for sending via email or printing at a later date. The HP Photosmart M517 will be priced around €229 (approx. US$386).
HP has announced the launch of its new digital camera designed to make it easier for all of the family to take exceptional digital photographs every time.
Equipped with 5 megapixel resolution the HP Photosmart M517 Digital Camera is perfect for taking pictures of both outdoor family activities as well as intimate portraits. With 24x total zoom (HP Precision 3x optical lens and 8x digital zoom), the images captured can be clearly viewed on the large 5 cm LCD screen or printed and enlarged up to A4 photo size, without any loss of quality to the image.
The camera is beautifully styled, featuring an intuitive button layout and ergonomic design, making it easy to secure a perfect image with one click every time. With 32 MB of internal memory, you can store dozens of images directly on the camera, or increase capacity with an optional SD/MMC memory card to potentially hold hundreds more.
The HP Photosmart M517 Digital Camera comes equipped with a set of award winning HP Real Life technologies. HP Adaptive Lighting makes it easy to automatically brighten dark areas in high contrast shots, revealing details normally lost in shadows. This feature gives great results even when photos are taken facing into the sun or in front of a window. HP In-camera Red-Eye Removal is another feature that allows quick adjustments of photos. The camera intuitively identifies and removes red-eye, saving red-eye free images in a few easy steps, explained on the camera’s large colour LCD screen.
The ‘fast shot’ mode allows you to take photographs in a rapid burst, making it possible to capture great action shots of family and friends, performances and events. This camera even allows you to grab short video clips, including audio, of those special occasions, so that the sentiment of the situation is not lost in years to come.
With HP Instant Share you can print and send images directly to your friends and family without having to send images as large file attachments. In addition HP Image Zone enables photos to be edited, organised and shared within seconds, avoiding complex procedures and large file downloads.
There are several optional accessories available for purchase to accompany the HP Photosmart M517 Digital Camera, including the HP Photosmart M-Series Dock (C8907A), HP Photosmart Quick Recharge Kit (L1815A) and stylish HP Photosmart M-Series Camera Sleeve (Q6214A) and Silver Camera Case (Q6217A).
The HP Photosmart M517 Digital Camera is available at a recommended retail price of €229 (actual prices may vary) (approx. $386).
