The Power of One Brief: Top reasons to choose HP BladeSystem

Visibly shaken?

As a camcorder, the CP45 has limitations. Its form factor doesn’t lend itself to particularly steady shots, and there’s no image stabilisation tech onboard. Be prepared for quite a lot of jiggling. And while there’s a 4x digital zoom, it’s as choppy as a channel crossing.

As you’ll see from my sample footage, it’s probably best to frame your shot and then leave well alone. The 720p image is sharp, with good colour reproduction. Recordings of London buses look picture postcard red and H.264 encoding noise is negligible. Audio quality is thin and monophonic, and subject to all sorts of handling noise and muffling.

As a digital snapper, the CP45 can deliver vibrant sharp images, although it does seem rather slow, with appreciable lag between button press and captured image.

 In a dark room, the unit throws a reasonable standard definition image.
