HP PhotoSmart M437 Review
Features and Controls
Auto focus is achieved by a TTL, contrast-gradient AF system.
There are Normal and Macro focus modes. The auto focus range is from
0.3 m to infinity (wide), 0.35 m to infinity (tele) in normal mode,
and 0.8 m (wide), 0.35 to 1.2 m (tele) in macro mode.
The Built-in auto-adjusting flash has modes for Auto, Forced Off, Auto
w/Red-Eye, and Forced On.
The maximum flash working distance is 10.2 ft wide, 5.9 ft telephoto at Auto ISO.
On the back is a large 2.0-inch color LCD with 153,600 pixels of resolution. The LCD has a 170-degree wide viewing angle and shows 100% as the live viewfinder and during image review.
Controls on the back: On the top edge is the Image delete button, Flash mode button, and the Mode switch
(Still/Movie/Playback.) Next is the Zoom control, which in playback mode brings up the thumbnail index
and magnifies an image. The Menu/OK button (center of the 4-way selector) calls up the onscreen menu
system and accepts selections. The 4-way selector is for navigating menus and selecting pictures for
playback. The back button is used to go back a page in the menu system as well as exit it.
Controls on top include the power on/off button and the shutter release.
The PhotoSmart M437 comes with 16MB of internal memory and is compatible with SD (Secure Digital) cards up to 2GB. Shown here with fast and spacious Delkin eFilm 1GB SD card.
Approx. Capacity of internal 16MB
The M437 can be powered by two AA type batteries, alkaline, lithium or rechargeable NiMH
cells. Included are two alkaline batteries. We always recommend the use of NiMH cells, they
last longer and will save you money in the long run.
