The Digital Imaging Websites Association, a world-wide organization of collaborating Web sites, selected HP's new Photosmart R707 camera as its top-ranked compact amateur digital camera.

The Photosmart R707, introduced in May, inaugurated a new line of cameras that are able to eliminate red-eye, stitch together panorama photos in preview mode and produce pictures closer to what our eyes see -- all inside the camera, without a PC.

"Obviously, HP possesses far more imaging expertise than just what is found in their excellent printers and scanner," the organization said. "With this compact camera, HP also proves that high performance and low price is not an impossible combination."

The Photosmart R707 is the first to contain HP's Real Life technologies developed by researchers in HP's imaging business group and HP Labs in Palo Alto, Calif.; Bristol, England and Haifa, Israel.

Driven by an image engine developed by scientists at HP and Texas Instruments, Real Life technologies encompass not only in-camera red-eye removal and panorama preview, but also adaptive lighting to bring faces out of the shadows and details out of backgrounds in high-contrast photos, image advice and an image noise filter.
