Of the three new Hewlett-Packard models announced at PMA 2007, the HP Photosmart R837 is perhaps the most interesting. Where past HP cameras have tended to all follow a fairly similar theme styling-wise, the HP R837 is a bit of a departure for the company in that it has a vertically sliding panel on the front of the camera body that (when closed) offers protection for the lens. The 3x optical zoom itself is also noteworthy for the fact that it has been branded as a Fujinon lens, where the other two cameras both have "HP Precision"-branded lenses.

The R837 couples its lens with a seven megapixel imager, provides a generous 3.0" LCD display for image framing or review, and stores data in 32MB of built-in memory, or on SD / MMC cards. Power comes from a proprietary Lithium Ion battery, and the HP R837 includes both USB and NTSC / PAL video connections. HP claims two firsts for the R837 - first digicam with an in-camera "pet-eye fix" mode, and first to feature in-camera tagging of photos (compatible with Windows Vista).

Hewlett-Packard Photosmart R837 pricing and availability are unknown at this time.
