Review: HP SW450 Digital Camera
This weekend I reviewed the HP SW450 Digital Camera. The HP camera features 12 megapixels and a 4X optical zoom. The SW450 included a blink detector, which would notify you if a person in the photo blinked and prompt you to retake it. There's also a smile detector which will automatically take a photo when a subject is smiling. The specs of the HP compare quite well to my current camera, the Nikon Coolpix S570 so I took a few photos with my Nikon and the HP camera to see which camera takes better quality photos. Both cameras were left on auto both times (mostly because I hate clicking extra settings buttons). Click to enlarge the photos for better inspection.
And then... there's video. While I could only capture this poor dog fighting against the outside on the HP, I thought you would enjoy it!
Overall, the only thing I care about with photos is good quality. I would have had to change the photo settings on iPhoto for the Nikon photos to have the same quality as the HP and that's an added step I don't want. While both cameras have similar pixelage, the HP clearly won this battle. It looks like I need a new camera...
