Click to take a 360-degree QTVR tour of the PhotoSmart R707
The stylish new HP PhotoSmart R707, is the first model to feature HP Real Life technologies with HP Instant Share, a technology that makes sharing, printing, and saving digital photos easy. In addition, the HP PhotoSmart R707 digital camera offers 5.1-megapixels of resolution, 3x optical zoom, 32 megabytes of internal storage and PictBridge capabilities, all of which help users achieve professional-quality photos. The R707 also includes features like a durable, stainless-steel/high-impact plastic construction and HP's exclusive Real Life technologies, which includes Adaptive Lighting and HP Image advice. The in-camera red-eye removal system, automatically eliminates red- eye in your images, to ensure the best possible photos and memories. With two additional shooting modes (Beach/Snow, and document capture) users have more options to assist in taking outstanding photos.
HP Instant Share makes sharing, printing and saving digital photos easy. Users simply take a photo and select its destination right on the back of the camera - up to 34 destinations, including e-mail addresses, online albums, printers and more - by simply pushing a button. When the digital camera is later connected to a computer or the optional camera dock, the selected photos are automatically printed and/or e-mailed without burdening friends with large file attachments. E-mail recipients see thumbnails of the images right in the body of their e-mail message, as well as a link to the web page where they can very easily view, print and save the photos, upload them to online albums and more.
HP's Adaptive Lighting technology (ALT), automatically adjusts high-contrast photos to bring faces out of shadows and details out of backgrounds. The technology balances brightness relationships between bright and dark areas in a photo, preserving gentle contrasts while compressing harsh contrasts. The result is automatic-contrast adjustment that lightens poorly illuminated objects and produces a true-to-life image that mirrors the natural beauty that the user intended to capture.
