Default Searching for review of HP Photosmart 735

Hello overthere,

I'm exploring the internet for an independent review (no press release I mean) of the HP Photosmart 735, but can't find.

May you know where I can find a review?

Regards,

Martijn Koutstaal

Nobody knowing a HP Photosmart 735 review?

By the way, from which country are you / this forum? United States, United Kingdom?

HP 735 isn't yet on sale in France to date.

I don't know when it really leaves on the market ! Is it that's why you doesn't find review ?...

My dealer says he will receive the camera this week. I thought new cameras are launched earlier in the United States than for example in The Netherlands. And may be, just as is the case by automotive publications, reviewers get them earlier?

Hello all,

I've got the Photosmart 735 now for 2 weeks and I was very pleased with the quality off the pictures. It's very similar to the 720, I think there are only some more features on it and also the Pentax lens is a difference.

Even the pictures that I've taken inside are very clear and got good colours; the only limitation is the flash. But when you want sparkling clear pictures you know that you need an external flash. The working range is similar to these of some compact camera's.

But overall I'm very pleased with it.

Hi! I just wanted to join your quest for the holy review.
I have also searched everywhere (within my capacity)
and havenīt found anything worth mentioning yet.

It looks good at the paper and the price/spec. is the best.
Iīm just waiting for a review!

Default HP 735 better than 720?

Hi,
I too am waiting for reviews of the 735, thinking of buying in Europe.
The 720 got good reviews from Steve and seemed a good bargain at around 250 euros, though now seems out of stock everywhere.
I'm looking for something in the same price range with the same specs - 3.2MP and 3x optical zoom - so the new 735 may be the ticket. It's currently available in Italy at around 220 euros, so I hope to find out if it's cheaper than the 720 because HP cut back on quality, or just because the market is driving prices down.
I can get the 735 with a 128MB SD card, shipping and 2-year warranty for 250 euros, which is BY FAR the best deal on consumer digicams I can find in Europe. Like everyone else, I hope to hear if it's as good as (better than/worse than) the 720, before buying.

Any other recommendations in the 200-250 euro price range?
I like the Powershot A70, but in Italy it's 300 euros. Worth the extra 80-90 euros compared to the HP 735?

Hi,
yes, I'm familiar with Pixmania and it was thru them that I found the HP 735 with 128MB SD card for about 250 euros + tax. Pretty good price.
The other contenders I'm looking at are the Coolpix 885 with 128MB CF card for about 300 euros + tax and the Kodak 4330 for about 300 + tax, but no additional big memory card.
Lots of people have recommended spending the 50-60 euros more and getting the Coolpix 885.
Any suggestions?
