HP Photosmart R727 review
This is my eighth digital camera since 1997, and I bought it to replace a Konica Minolta Dimage Xt I unfortunately lost. I like to have a small camera to carry on me all the tims, and the R727 fits the bill very well. Not the smallest of cameras, but it will fit easily in a shirt pocket. The metal body is very stylish, and the camera is very easy to use (but has plenty of advanced features). The large 2.5 inch screen is a joy to use and, as I don't have good eyesight, makes navigating the menus very easy. There are lots of graphicsl on the menus - even tips how to improve the pictures you have taken!
Picture quality is very good, with plenty of detail at 6.2mp. Also the movie mode is useful at 640 x 480, and you can zoom while taking a movie (a lot of cameras cannot do this).
Startup time is very quick indeed. The controls are very well laid out, and very simple. I did not need to read the instruction manual to get up and running with the camera.
The metal case gives the camera a real feel of quality.
Zoom is incremented (ten distinct steps), and can be heard stepping when you zoom during a movie - minor niggle.
The USB/adaptor port door seems a little flimsy and vulnerable.
No optical viewfinder (though I haven't found this to be much of a problem).
