HP Unveils Digital Cameras and Camcorders Featuring Touch Technology

Posted by at 12:21 pm on February 19, 2010

HP today introduced five point-and-shoot digital cameras and three camcorders

Adding to its growing portfolio of touch-enabled notebooks and desktops, HP now features LCD touchscreen displays on select cameras and camcorders. In addition, select models feature a new intuitive user interface that makes them a snap to use. Interface improvements include a high color contrast to help ensure better visibility of menus and a choice of more than 25 scene modes to help ensure photos are of the highest quality.

When choosing a scene mode, the display shows two images -“ how the photo will look in auto mode and how it will look in the selected scene mode. For example, choosing “snow” mode during a ski trip can transform overly bright, washed-out photos into vibrant depictions of the snow capped mountains.

Point And Shoots

The premium HP CW450t and HP PW460t point-and-shoot digital cameras feature 2.7-inch and 3-inch LCD touchscreen displays, respectively, and a newly designed touch interface for viewing photos with the simple swipe of a finger. Both have 4X optical zoom and support up to 32-gigabyte SD/SDHC memory.

The CW450t is available in two colors -“ blue and merlot -“ and priced at $109. The PW460t is available in pink and charcoal gray and priced at $149.

Camcorders

The latest HP touchscreen digital camcorders -“ the V5061u and V5560u -“ feature large 3-inch LCD touchscreen displays, 1,080p high-definition (HD) recording and motion-detection capabilities.

Additionally, the V5560u features 5X optical zoom and a lithium-ion battery. The V5061u provides a dual SD/SDHC memory card for plenty of room to record, and an option to install AA batteries if the lithium-ion battery is not charged. The V5560u and V5061u are priced at $199 and $169

The cameras and camcorders come in slim, lightweight designs at prices ranging from $99 to $199. They are expected to be available this spring at select retailers.
