A step up in resolution from the HP Photosmart M447, the Photosmart M547 features a six megapixel CCD coupled to a 36 - 108mm equivalent, f/2.7 - f/4.8, 3x HP Precision-branded optical zoom. For framing images, there's a 2.4 inch LCD display, but the M547 has no optical viewfinder - something that's become an increasingly rare in modern digital cameras, unfortunately.

The HP M547 offers ISO sensitivity settings from 100 to 800, shutter speeds from 2 to 1/1500 second, exposure compensation of +/- 2.0EV in 1/2 EV increments, center-weighted AE metering and eight shooting modes including Close Up, Steady Photo, Theatre, Landscape, Portrait, Action, Night Portrait and Sunset. A ten second self-timer mode is also provided. The M547 also features a 320 x 240 pixel, 24 frames-per-second movie mode with audio, encoded in Motion-JPEG format.

Other HP M547 features include HP's in-camera red-eye removal, steady photo anti-shake, HP Design Gallery (colors and borders), a four mode built-in flash, USB 2.0 Full Speed connectivity, and 16MB of built-in memory plus an SD / SDHC card slot. The M547 derives its power from two AA batteries with disposable alkalines being included in the product bundles.

The Hewlett-Packard Photosmart M547 is priced at US$109.99 and ships August 2007.
