      This digital camera is designed for the consumer who is seeking a slim compact design that can easily be placed into their bag or pocket. It is a very stylish camera which features anti- shaking mode and red eye removal on the spot. This I found to be quite handy when traveling as well as daily use. I can easily slip into my purse or fanny pack when traveling.

      The HP Photosmart R742 takes excellent pictures for the beginning photographer. I have used it for anything from taking pictures of my family to up close (macro) shots of ice on the flowers outside.


      The colors are vivid, bright and beautiful. It is a no fuss camera and is very economically priced. Which is wonderful for everyone starting out with a digital camera.

      This camera has a auto focus button, 3x zoom lens, as well as a playback mode. You can record using video clip. This allows you to capture video clip with sound. However in order to hear the sound you must transfer the video onto your computer. This process does not take long however and is simple to do.

      The HP Photosmart R742 has 9 different shooting modes.

      Auto-Mode which is the default setting.


      • This is used for normal picture taking.

        Theatre Mode which is used to capture pictures without flash.

        Close Up Mode which allows you to be within 1.97 and 31.52 inches from the object and still retain clarity.

        Steady Mode which allows the user to maximize the shutter speed. This is excellent for taking pictures of a poorly lit subject and lets you avoid camera shake.

        Landscape Mode for use when you are taking pictures from a large distance away. It maximizes the depth of field.

        Portrait Mode appears to give preference to a wide aperture to limit the depth of field and blur the background behind the subject.

        /> Action Mode to be used with any subject picture in action. I have used this numerous times at sporting events such as Nascar racing.

        Night Portrait Mode for pictures after dark. It uses flash and automatic red eye reduction.

        Sunset Mode which emphasizes red and orange tones. The camera takes excellent sunset pictures.

        I have been using my HP Photosmart R742 for 2 years now and have not one complaint about it. I would recommend this camera to all persons seeking an economical, slim compact camera for their daily use.

        My rating on this product of a rating system of 1 - 5. I give the HP Photosmart R742 a 5 out of 5.
