HP Photosmart 935 Review
HP announced the five megapixel Photosmart 935 and three megapixel Photosmart 735 at the Photo Marketing Association (PMA 2003) show earlier this year. The 935 is a development of the Photosmart 812 design, this camera has a five megapixel 1/1.8" sensor and three times (Pentax branded) optical zoom lens. The 935 joins an ever growing area of the digital camera market, compact three times optical zoom five megapixel.
HP's approach to digital camera design is slightly different to other manufacturers, they appear to be concentrating on making the camera easy to use and providing visible control and indiciators on the camera body. For example there is a single dedicated movie mode button on the top of the camera, along with LED indicators for each individual flash and focus mode.
If you're new to digital photography you may wish to read the Digital Photography Glossary before diving into this review (it may help you understand some of the terms used).

DPReview calibrate their monitors using Color Vision OptiCal at the (fairly well accepted) PC normal gamma 2.2, this means that on our monitors we can see the difference between all of the grayscale blocks below. We recommend to make the most of this review you should be able to see the difference (at least) between X,Y and Z and ideally A,B and C.
