    the 7X digital zoom is mildly amusing to say the very least...

    as usual Computer Times get all their facts wrong by labelling this as "HP's venture into digital camera".

    Did they say that?

    Guess those guys writing for Computer Times don't really do their homework, do they?

    Default Digital flash.....

    Hi there...

    Let me share some info on the concept of Digital flash. It is also known as Retinex technology....

    It processed the image "in camera" for how an eye would see the image.

    As you can see our eyes react very differently as the camera for example a scene from a kitchen window during the day(sunny day).

    So if the sun is bright, our eyes react by closing the iris to cut doen the light BUT .....the fore front i.e the kitchen still visible to our eyes. It would not be very dark like how a average metering of a camera will react.

    In normal indoor shots like the above, a fill in flash would be neccessary. But for this HP 945 , it uses a digital flash where it process the image in the camera to compensate for the darkness and balanced to a level just like what an eye would see.

    Here is an example of retinex in use....
