HP PhotoSmart R817 announcement clippings

The R817's advanced features include multi-zone auto focus for crisp accurate shots. Users are able to select shutter or aperature priority, or choose to take greater control by working within the ‘full manual mode' in light sensitive situations, in order to capture more creative photographs. Both cameras have an impressive 40x total zoom (5x digital, 8x optical) and the large 5.1 cm LCD screen, which features on both cameras, makes it simple to quickly view images, indoors and out, allowing users to check their shots as soon as they are taken.
