America's largest camera shown starts this week, and HP
will be on-hand
in order to showcase their latest additions to the photography world.
In order to take on the likes of Canon and Nikon in the point and shoot
sector, HP has launched five new handheld cameras and three camcorders,
with the former being priced between $99 and $199.
These are obviously aimed at the lower-end, a market which is also
pretty crowded in its own right. The "premium" HP CW450t and HP PW460t
models feature a 2.7" and 3" (respectively) display, a newly designed
touch-screen interface, 4x optical zoom and an SD/SDHC card slot. The
CW450t is available in two colors – blue and merlot – and priced at
$109, while the PW460t is available in pink and charcoal gray and
priced at $149.
The V5061u and V5560u spruce up the company's camcorder line, both of
which have 3" touch-panels, support for 1080p shooting and motion
detection capabilities. The latter has a 5x optical zoom and a Li-Ion
battery, while the former has a dual SD/SDHC card slot setup and the
option to use AA batteries if the standard Li-Ion runs out. They'll be
priced at $169 and $199, respectively.
