HP splash into summer - HP are splashing into summer with hot new products to capture and print memories.
HP today introduced several imaging and printing products – including nine feature-rich digital cameras, two versatile single-function Photosmart printers and an all-in-one Photosmart printer – all designed to enable people to make the most of summer memories.
- A digital camera with the largest touchscreen LCD display of any compact digital camera in the industry;
- Single-function printers that offer the fastest and easiest way to print lab-quality photos at home and
- An all-in-one printer that can print customized labels directly onto CDs and DVDs.
“Summer brings not only warmer weather, but family vacations, backyard get-togethers and plenty of other occasions where memories can be captured,” said Dan Gilbert, vice president of marketing, Digital Photography and Entertainment, HP. “HP’s latest digital cameras and printers are not only easy to use, but also empower people to customize and share their photos, their way.”
Interact with summer photos using touchscreen technology
The HP Photosmart R937 Digital Camera has a 3.6in Auto-bright touchscreen display for editing and organizing photos directly on the camera. Included within the touchscreen is a Microsoft Windows Vista compatible tagging feature and a virtual keyboard, making photo organization and management quick and easy once the camera is connected to a PC.
The 8Mp R937 also features the latest generation of HP Design Gallery, which includes the popular slimming feature that can take up to 10 pounds off photographed subjects, HP pet-eye fix to correct glowing pet eyes and HP touch-up technology for removal of blemishes.
The HP Photosmart Mz67 Digital Camera, which produces 8Mp photos, is HP’s first compact midrange zoom digital camera. The Mz67 features a big 6x optical zoom and a bright 2.5in display for easy viewing indoors or out.
Adding a splash of colour to HP’s lineup, the HP Photosmart R742 Digital Camera comes in a wide variety of colours, including silver black and dark blue. Six other new HP digital cameras – starting as low as $79 (around £40) – feature industry-leading in-camera red-eye removal, HP steady photo anti-shake mode, HP Design Gallery, HP Photosmart software and Vista compatibility, making it easy to edit, share and manage photos.
The thin and lightweight, 5Mp HP Photosmart E337 Digital Camera is expected to be available for purchase in July. The remaining eight digital cameras, including the HP Photosmart R937 Digital Camera and HP Photosmart Mz67 Digital Camera, are expected to be available for purchase in August.

The HP Photosmart D7260 Printer and HP Photosmart D7460 Printer provide the fastest and easiest way to print photos at home – producing stunning six colour photos in as fast as 10 seconds. When combined with HP Vivera inks and HP Advanced Photo Paper, these printers offer reliable, low-cost photo printing, plus superior-quality prints.
Both printers feature easy-to-use 3.5in touchscreens, an HP Red-Eye Removal button for easy removal of red-eye from photos directly on the printer, HP Smart Web Printing to ensure that pages from websites print without cut-off edges, Ethernet networking for added compatibility, and HP Auto Sense technology to prevent common printing mistakes.
In addition, the D7460 features built-in wireless connectivity and Ethernet, making it even easier to share and print summer adventures using network-enabled notebooks and PCs.
The HP Photosmart D7260 Printer and HP Photosmart D7460 Printer are expected to be available in August for $149 (around £75) and $179, (around £90) respectively.
