HP used PMA to introduce five point-and-shoot digital cameras and three camcorders with features such as LCD displays, up to 5X optical zoom and several fashionable colors. The cameras and camcorders come in slim, lightweight designs at prices ranging from $99 to $199. They are expected to be available this spring at select retailers.
Adding to its portfolio of touch-enabled notebooks and desktops, HP now features LCD touchscreen displays on select cameras and camcorders. In addition, select models feature a new intuitive user interface that makes them a snap to use. Interface improvements include a high color contrast to help ensure better visibility of menus and a choice of more than 25 scene modes to help ensure photos are of the highest quality.
The premium HP CW450t and HP PW460t point-and-shoot digital cameras feature 2.7-inch and 3-inch LCD touchscreen displays, respectively, and a newly designed touch interface for viewing photos with the simple swipe of a finger. Both have 4X optical zoom and support up to 32-gigabyte (GB) SD/SDHC memory.
The latest HP touchscreen digital camcorders – the V5061u and V5560u – feature large 3-inch LCD touchscreen displays, 1,080p high-definition (HD) recording and motion-detection capabilities.
