Hewlett Packard PhotoSmart 812 Review
Here we can see an example of the default live display view, the center brackets indicate the auto focus area. Information overlaid in this case:
Image quality setting (), Macro focus, Battery status, 112 frames remaining at this Image quality.
|Here we're already half-pressed the shutter release and are ready to shoot. The AF brackets have turned green to indicate a good AF lock, if auto focus fails the brackets turn red and 'UNABLE TO FOCUS', 'FOCUS TOO CLOSE' or 'FOCUS TOO FAR' (macro) will be displayed on the monitor.||After shooting a review of the image taken is displayed briefly (approximately 3 seconds).|
|An example of movie record mode, note that the remaining time (10:33 in this case) refers to the total amount of 1 minute clips you would be able to take.||Here's an example of the way the 812 uses text prompts to indicate settings or mode changes. In this example we've switched to self-timer mode. The 'SELF-TIMER' text is displayed only briefly.|
|Press the OK button to display the last image taken, the two arrows indicate we can browse left or right through the images taken.||This was difficult to capture as it takes less than a second. The 812 uses a unique 'smooth scroll' between images, sliding the next image on from the left or the right and pushing the current image off the screen.|
|Pressing the menu button displays the menu sidebar over the left side of the image. This is the only way to access the delete, magnify and rotate functions.||Selecting delete from the menu displays this option page, you can delete this image, all images or format the SD card.|
|Selecting magnify from the menu switches to this 4x magnification view, use the 4-way controller to scroll around the magnified image.||Pressing the Image Mark button allows you to mark the image for printing (one or two copies) and/or transmission by e-mail.|
