HP has introduced five point-and-shoot digital cameras and three camcorders boasting features such as LCD displays, up to 5X optical zoom and fashionable colors.
HP said 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.
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.
Among the new releases are the premium HP CW450t ($109) and HP PW460t ($149, pictured above) point-and-shoot digital cameras, featuring 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.
â€œHP is giving consumers a better way to interact with point-and-shoot cameras by offering models with advanced features at a great value,â€ said Mark Ostendorf, manager, Business Development, Personal Systems Group, HP.
