HP Adaptive Lighting Technology
The HP Photosmart 945 digital camera is HP's first digital camera to feature HP's Adaptive Lighting Technology, a breakthrough technology that enables digital cameras to produce photos that look more like what consumers see with their own eyes. It 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.

HP Instant Share
With HP Instant Share™, sharing, printing and saving digital photos has never been easier. Users simply take a photo and select on the back of the camera who to share their photos with 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 e-mailed and/or printed.
