HP Photosmart R817 review from Pocket Lint"In steps the R817, a small compact camera that tries itís hardest to stand alongside the Canons and Nikons of this world. The body and design, while reduced considerably since the last outing in the R707, is still a tiny bit chunky and clunky."

HP Photosmart R817 review from Photography Blog"The R817 is also quite a lot smaller than the older models, although this does come at the expense of a smaller CCD sensor and the omission of an optical viewfinder. Other notable features include a larger 2 inch LCD screen with increased resolution and some new HP technologies, including in-camera panorama stitching and red-eye removal, plus a greatly improved video mode."

HP Photosmart R817 review from Digital Camera Review"While the R817 has one fewer megapixels, the addition of the 5x optical Pentax lens and refined user interface make up for it. While the Pentax lens may take slightly sharper photos, noise continues to be an issue for people wanting the best image quality for their money."
