I am anhome user who only takes pictures at family gathering and whenout with my friends. I am currently in a delima(sp?) where I have to choose between the 945 and the r707. The 945 has a better lens but is much bulkier and I really don'tlike that. But the 945 also has a better zoom, but the r707 is much slimmer and sleeker. This is the conversationI have had with myself for the past couple days. Please someone give me some advice.

I have used HP945 since almost one year and I am satisfied with it, in general. In my opinion, picture quality is very good.

A few things that I don't like are:

- when shooting against the sun (not something that one normally does, but it can happen), the camera may exhibit a strange behaviour (horizontal lines). It is not clear wether or not HP has corrected this in recent cameras. My camera has this defect, but I am not too much worried because it affects only a small pecentage of pictures

- it is a little bit slow, so it is not ideal for moving subjets (if you pre-focus it becomes better, but still a little bit slow)

- the quality of registered sound is bad

Abaout thelast 2 points, I don't know if R707 is better.

You can see a lot of samples on: www.hp945.com
