HP recalls R707 digital camera: Downloadable fix available

HP has issued a firmware safety recall for the R707 Digital Camera. Some 700,000 of these have been sold across the world. When the R707 camera is used with a non-rechargeable battery, such as a Duracell CP-1, the camera can cause the battery to overheat resulting in a burn and fire hazard while the camera is connected to the ac adapter or camera docking station.
