HP's Photosmart R725 camera is a solid buy for average users


I will start out by saying that HP's Photosmart R725 is NOT.  It is not a digital-SLR camera.  It is not intended for professional photography.  It is not going to make masterpieces.  With all of that out of the way, I can now tell you that this digital point-and-shoot camera is a solid piece of machinery.  It is ultra-compact and will likely fit into your back pocket (just don't sit down!).  This 6.2-megapixel camera has a large 2" image display on the back and a 3X optical zoom and 8X digital zoom for an impressive overall 24X zoom.  I have taken scenic photographs and blown them up to 11" x 14" for framing in my home and was quite pleased with the results.  The battery life is fairly decent, although beware a pretty touchy & sensitive power button that likes to turn the camera on while it's in your purse or bag - draining the battery while you're not looking.  Another plus of this camera is the HP Design Gallery built-in software that include in-camera red eye removal as well as artistic effects and borders before you ever transfer a single image to your computer.  Bottom line - the HP Photosmart R725 is great at its intended uses.

Very user friendly and shoots excellent photos.


The Hewlett Packard - Photosmart R725 Digital Camera and software are easy to use. The photos are sharp with 6.2 mega pixels. It is small in size to carry anywhere. The camera can take moderate rough handing. The camera has a few advance features i.e Macro, Portrait, Auto Flash and video.  Very user friendly.

Good quality and easy to use.


**This is the first and only digital camera I've ever owned, however, I have used others. This particular one is easy to use and has all the basics without all those extra features you'll never use anyways. It has focusing, red-eye removal, different flash settings, etc. It also takes short video clips (aprox. 1 minute 30 seconds).Overall, I am happy with this basic digital camera and plan to keep it until it breaks (I've had it for over a year now).**
