HP PhotoSmart R837 Review
By Movable Type Admin
Playback Modes & Menu Options
Please excuse the quality of these screen captures, the R837 does not output video without the
optional HP 6221 Premium Camera Dock, so they were either photographed off of the LCD monitor
or taken from a previous review.|
When you press the Record/Playback mode button, the last image captured is displayed full
screen with minimal exposure information. The 19 of 25 indicates that this is the nineteenth image of
seventy five taken.
You can quickly search through stored images using the Index playback function which is activated by
pressing the Wide zoom control button. Nine thumbnail size images will be displayed and you can select
one using the 4-way controller and then pressing the Telephoto zoom or OK button. The camera also sorts
your pictures by date, putting them into collections for easy searching.
The Playback menu options:
Photosmart Express - Print, Share, Buy Prints Online
Tag - Add tags to pictures for organization
View Slide show - Plays an automatic slide show of images stored in memory
Stitch Panorama - Stitches panorama images together to create a single photo
Move images to Card - copies pictures from internal memory to the SD card
Camera Setup - Setup Menu
Camera Help - Camera Help Menu
The Design Gallery menu options:
Rotate - Change orientation of images
Apply Artistic Effects - Add a creative effect to an image
Enhance Photos - Improve this image by fixing common problems
Modify Color - Create a copy of this image in a new color
Add Borders - Add a border to this image
Crop - Select and save part of an image as a new file
You can magnify an image in Playback mode by pressing the telephoto zoom
control button. This allows you to check images for critical focus, etc. You
can then scroll around the image by using the 4-way controller.

You can easily take care of red-eye without having to transfer your image to a computer, thanks to the R837's in-camera red-eye removal. Going to the Image advice option will notify you if there is a possible occurrence of Red-eye, then you select Remove Red Eyes in the Design Gallery menu and it eliminates any red-eye and allows you to preview what was changed (see above), then you can opt to save it or cancel. When you save it, it overwrites the original, so if you do not want to lose the original file I would suggest copying it to your computer first (note: this animation was taken from the R707.)
