Most of the time you can just leave the setting at "auto" and the camera will do a very good job of color balancing. Fluorescent lighting gives it most problems and that isn't at all surprising since fluorescent lights come in so many different type with different spectral outputs - and the output Hp digital camera photosmart 720 many of this is discontinuous, meaning there are "spikes" or color mostly green which are very difficult to deal with.

Nevertheless testing under screw-in fluorescent replacements Hp digital camera photosmart 720 tungsten bulbs, color balance was very neutral on the auto setting. Sun, shade and tungsten settings can be used to fix the color balance, which may be useful for a series of shots or if your subject is, say, all one color, which can give auto systems a hard time. Manual color balance is useful under mixed or other difficult lighting conditions and should give the best results if other settings don't look quite right.

Metering There are three metering modes, Average - which averages across the whole frame, Center-weighted - which Hp digital camera photosmart 720 more weight to objects in the center of the image but also takes the edges into account, and Spot which determines exposure based only on on whatever is in center of the image. There is no "multi-zone" metering option. In general metering seems pretty accurate.


Zoom, zoom and more zoom The lens is an 8x "zoom", equivalent to about a lens on a full frame 35mm slr. I put "zoom" in quotes because like many lenses on digicams it appears to have discrete zooming steps. I counted 13 steps from 37mm to mm. After you're at mm, holding down the zoom button engages "digital zoom", which basically just crops the image. The LCD actually shows the crop rather than the enlarged image, which is a good and non-misleading way to do this. Playback and playback zoom Unlike some digicams. If you hit the playback button while in the normal shooting mode, you can recall images. However shooting mode always has priority, so if you're in the middle of reviewing your images and an alien spaceship swoops overhead, you can point and shoot without having to switch from playback to shooting mode.

Playback Hp digital camera photosmart 720 is amazing!


You can blow up an image Hp digital camera photosmart 720 a factor of x. At this level of expansion you can count the individual pixels. I'm not quite sure why you'd want to do this, but it's a neat feature and there's certainly no Hp digital camera photosmart 720 anyone could ever complain that playback zoom isn't powerful enough! The only slight disappointment here is that recalling an image for playback zoom takes about seconds, presumably this time is required to read the image data from the memory card into the camera. It's not really a big deal but the lag is noticeable and could get annoying if you wanted to review a lot of images at high magnification. Focus Autofocus works well, if not blindingly fast. Focus speed depends on how much focus change is needed, but, for example, going from close focus to infinity at mm takes about 1. AF time is shorter if less change in focus distance is needed, but is still at least about 0.

There is one AF zone, in the center of the frame, and it seems accurate and reliable. It light sup in green if focus has been achieved. There's also an infinity range which the manual says "limits focus to a small region near infinity".

I suppose this could speed up AF somewhat and could be useful if shooting past nearer objects which are close to the AF zone. The macro focus setting is used for objects closer than 80cm There is also a manual focus setting, which can act as a focus lock.

Unless there is a real reason to use manual focus, autofocus is probably better as it's pretty hard to judge exact focus from the LCD display. I shot more than that maybe 55 but I deleted some of the images.

I also reviewed the images on the camera LCD display. I only used flash for one shot. This isn't bad performance. Higher capacity NiMH cells are available up to mAh so you can do better with better batteries. NiMH batteries are much more economical, but you'll probably want to have a spare set available if you're shooting in the field a lot. HP literature gives the following information on energy consumed by various operations in terms of shots: I know that's very subjective but here's an example of the same scene shot at mm 35mm full frame equivalent taken using the HP and an EOS 10D using a IS lens. It features Hp digital camera photosmart 720 HP Instant Share Technology, two-megapixel total resolution, and a video clip capability, allowing the user to capture Hp digital camera photosmart 720 as they happen.
