PCWorld reviews the HP Photosmart M537 (Rating: 4/5) and writes;
“The M537’s plastic case doesn’t feel very rugged. However, it does fit well in the hand, and the L-shaped zoom control falls conveniently under your thumb. In our battery tests, the Photosmart M537 excelled, taking 345 shots before depleting a pair of AA cells…Despite a generous software bundle and long battery life, low image quality makes the M537 a less attractive option than some other comparably priced cameras. ”

Steve’sDigicams reviews the HP Photosmart M537 and writes;
“The overall image quality of our 6MP Best images was good for an entry-level consumer model. The majority of our outdoor samples were sharp and showed good overall exposure. Colors are richly saturated, almost a bit too much. Image noise is present in areas of contrast (open blue skies and shadows), even when the camera selects the lowest ISO setting available (ISO 50.)”

LaptopMag reviews the HP Photosmart M537 and writes;
“On our tests, the M537 produced crisp shots both indoors and out. A photo of a colleague looked warm, and the focus was sharp. Yellows were a bit intense in a photo of a vase of tulips, but the photo looked acceptable. There aren’t any manual controls on the M537, but beginners will be happy with the included presets.”
