One of the most special features about this camera are its built-in photo retouch features, which enable you to remove red eyes and blemishes.
HP packages some unique in-camera tweaks to make your images look better, so you don't have to fire up Photoshop when you return home. Entering the Design Gallery gives you the option to remove red eyes, apply artistic effects (like turning your photo into a cartoon), and even correct facial blemishes, slim down subjects, and adjust the eyes of pets, so they don't look like extras from Pet Cemetery. While the Slimming mode has appeared in other HP digicams, the Pet-Eye Fix and Touch Up modes are industry firsts. In a shot of our cats, the Pet-Eye Fix made their eyes appear clear and lifelike, without the eerie glow.Some more info can be read at Laptop Mag.
This digicam captures decent 24-fps VGA clips with sound. The 3X optical zoom let us get close while filming, and the clarity was surprisingly good for a point and shoot. Our only complaint was that the camera recorded a faint humming sound while zooming in.
