HP Photosmart 935 Review
Compact Flash Compartment
On the right side of the camera (from the back) is the spring loaded SD/MMC compartment door, just slide it outwards and it will spring open revealing the storage slot. Cards are inserted and removed with a single press. Here you can see the largest capacity currently available, a 512 MB SD card (this one from Viking). The 935 had no problems using this large card, although my SD->CF slot adapter wasn't compatible with it, beware.
On the left side of the camera (from the back) is a mini-USB (1.1) terminal, below this a DC-IN connector (for use with the optional AC adapter). In addition to these connectors the 935 also has a dock socket in the base of the camera for connection to the optional HP 8886 camera dock (which also provides video out). Once more I would have liked to see HP try harder with the design of the connections cover, an integrated hinged plastic door would look considerably neater.
The 935 has a Pentax branded 3x optical zoom lens, this provides an equivalent zoom range of 37 to 111 mm. Maximum aperture at wide angle is F2.8, at telephoto F4.6. The lens takes a fairly lethargic three seconds to extend, total power up time is around five seconds (slow by today's standards).
Base / Tripod Mount
The 935's flash is located at the top right of the front of the camera, it has a specified range of 2.5 m (8.2 ft) at wide angle and 1.3 m (4.3 ft) at telephoto.
Camera Dock (optional)
The HP Photosmart 8886 camera dock provides A/V out, USB out and DC-IN connectivity for the camera when placed on the dock. The camera comes with its own 'insert' (the dark gray part on the top of the dock) which must first be attached to the bare dock. With power from the external AC adapter the camera can charge NiMH batteries while on the dock. Also included is an infrared remote control which can be used to browse, rotate, magnify, share and print mark images while viewing on a TV screen.
