digital, the HP Photosmart 850 is the perfect choice, combining simple manual
controls with the extra functions of a digital camera."

and colour settings. You can also control aperture, to create movement in your

memory card depending on how detailed you want your photos to be. When combining
these manual features with 8x optical zoom, the HP Photosmart 850 ensures precision

seconds of video and sound. Once you have captured your moving and still images,
you can preview, review and edit photos and videos on the 5 cm LCD. You can
also store photos on the 16MB Secure Digital memory card.
