With a sleek exterior and intuitive easy-to-use features, the 3.2-megapixel HP Photosmart M307 digital camera is small and light enough to take with you anywhere. The Photosmart M307 digital camera has an aluminum front and rubberized back and offers HPs Instant Share feature, which lets you preset the destination of individual images to either email or print directly as soon as the camera is connected to a PC or printer. It also features a 3x optical zoom, large 1.8-inch LCD, 16 MB of internal memory, and compatibility with Secure Digital memory cards.
Optics and Resolution
The Photosmart M307 has a 3.2-megapixel resolution for images up to 2048 x 1536 for print enlargements up to 11 x 17 inches. It also offers a 1280 x 960 (1MP) and 640 x 480 (VGA) pixel options. The autofocus 3x optical zoom lens (6-18mm; 40-111mm equivalent in 35mm photography) features a 5x digital zoom, for 15x total.
Movie and Audio Modes
In addition to capturing still images, the Photosmart M307 can also record video with sound that’s limited only by the available memory (either internal or external memory card). Videos are captured at 320 x 240 pixels (QVGA) at 30 frames per second (fps). You can also make voice recordings of up to 60 seconds.
With a metallic finish, asymmetric body styling, signature curves and “wave-style” fingergrip, as well as clear and natural controls, this digital camera provides convenience and comfort. Its large 1.8-inch color LCD screen has a high 130-pixel resolution and can be easily viewed even in outdoor conditions. The fast-shot mode ensures that no photo opportunities go to waste, with a rapid shutter lag for capturing all the action.
Storage and Transfer
The internal 16 MB memory can store eight images at the Best 3-megapixel setting (with each image approximately 1.6 MB). The camera also has a memory card slot that accepts Secure Digital (SD) and MultiMedia (MMC) cards.
HP Instant Share
HP Instant Share makes sharing, printing, and saving digital photos easy. With 34 programmable e-mail destinations, the user is able to share digital images with individuals or address lists straight from the camera. When the digital camera is later connected to a computer, either directly or via the optional camera dock, thumbnails of the selected photos are automatically sent to the pre-selected destination without burdening the recipient with large file attachments. E-mail recipients see thumbnails of the images in the body of the e-mail message, as well as a link to the web page where they can easily view, print, save, and upload the photos to online albums.
Power and Size
The camera is powered by two AA batteries; two photo lithium AA batteries are included, but NiMH rechargeable batteries are recommended for their longer life while shooting. The Photosmart M307 measures 1.4 x 4.3 x 2.1 inches and weighs 4.8 ounces.
