    HP announced the introduction of two new cameras, the Photosmart R818 and the Photosmart R817. Both cameras features a 5.1 megapixel sensor, 5x optical zoom, 8x digital zoom and a 2 inch LCD. At this point you may be asking yourself why there are actually two cameras?

    First, the R817 comes in a standard silver finish, while the R818 comes in a black matte finish. Also, when you order the R817 you can get it with or without the docking station, while the R818 comes with the R-series docking station.

    The R817 will ship in July and is available with (349 pounds) or without a docking station (299 pounds). The R818 comes bundled with the HP Photosmart R-series docking station for 399 pounds and will ship in August.

    Other features of both cameras:

    • 15 unique shooting modes including action, landscape, beach and theatre mode
    • HP Real Life Technologies - featuring a panorama stitch feature to stitch up to 5 images together
    • HP Adaptive Lighting Technology - automatically brightens selected areas of high contrast photos to give brighter, more true-to-life shots
    • HP In-Camera Red Eye Removal - removes red eye from shots while still in the camera
    • Available waterproof housing - allows the camera to be submerged up to 40 meters

    With all of the new camera announcements over the past few months, HP seems intent on releasing some of the most un-inspiring products. I do like the trend of water proofing the cameras though. Not that many will go on a snorkling trip, but it does help from the inevitable water spill or whatnot.
