    4Review of HP Digital purchased used through
    By Sunshine
    First and foremost, I thank tremendously the seller for his/her clear and accurate it seems description of the camera with USB cord, plus the turn-around time in which I received the camera. I am amazed. I also believe the price was fair. I use my camera constantly for newspaper reporting, and to take pictures of my two grandsons. I did switch to Titanium Digital Camera Batteries to try to get much longer life out of the batteries. I was spending way too much on regular AA batteries; I would take extra batteries with me to reporting events, and still I would lose juice before I was through with my reporting gigs - embarrassing, inconvenient, unprofessional. Radio Shack suggested I try the Titanium, and so far it is awesome. The bit of extra $ I spent to purchase 10 Titaniums has already paid for itself in one month. I love HP cameras. I had a small digital HP for years, but it's life wore out. Recently I purchased another brand and took it back - did not like it. Hunted high and low at all the familiar techy stores, but no one in my area seems to sell HP cameras except online, including I was in dire straits, needing a camera "yesterday" for my reporting work, borrowing the office cameras at great inconvenience for all of us. So far, not a care in the world re my camera for my work productivity.....and now I can keep current on my grandsons' pictures without waiting for their parents to get me pictures periodically, and which rarely if ever come.:( Thank you,, and previous HP digital camera owner.

    4Trusty cam
    By LesB
    This is a down-the-road review, 2014.
    This has been a trusty camera through the years. Takes better pictures than I need.
    Has all kinds of adjustments and settings, more than I need. Includes flower mode for close-ups.

    Don't leave it plugged into your computer after you finished downloading. The batteries will drain.
    Use lithium batteries: Last longer and won't leak.
    Old technology: Takes one second to snap picture after button pushed. Not for action shots!

    If you can get one cheap it is worth not having to pay ridiculous prices for a new camera.

    4For the price - excellent
    By Lenny
    I bought this camera for my parents - who are not tech / gadget lovers, to put it mildly.

    It is very easy to use, the automatic mode is fine most of the time, the power and zoom buttons is a little fiddly, not something I noticed until I was giving the parents the "how to use it" lesson! This is not to say that they are difficult, just that some people might find them hard to use. It does what it is designed to do.

    The photos are clear and sharp, colour reproduction is Ok - sometimes colours are more vibrant than in real life, but mostly this is subtle enough to just make the photos more intersting and visually appealing. (People's skin looks better - so it can be quite flattering!!!!) 5MP is easily enough for good quality prints and enlargements. With a 1/2 Gb card, you can just set the default to the highest quality and forget about it. It will store 100's of photos in that format.

    The body feels a little plastic - I have a Canon Power shot SD500 which feels a lot more solid, (but cost about $200 more) and the time lag between taking shots is a little longer with the HP (with flash - can be 2 - 3 seconds), but I think that it is a great buy for the price.

    AA batteries are great - especially for people who might be prone to forgetting to charge a battery for that special event.

    The main reason why I didn't give it 5 stars was that I did not like the software that came with it. Editing the photos an rotating photos to display appropriately was not intuitive. Certainly not when compared to the software that came with the Canon. Admittedly, I did not spend a lot of time with the software, so maybe I just didn't see the obvious..........

    I got a Kingston 512 MB Secure Digital Card (SD/512)for about $14 - and I am delighted with it. I can't believe the price of SD memory in the US. (I'm from Europe - I would expect to pay easily 3 - 4 times that in Europe). It works, there's not a lot else to say about it. It's not a high speed card, but with this camera, a high speed card would be a waste (I put a high speed card into it from my Canon and it didn't make a noticeable difference to the time lag between shots, so I assume it is the processor that is the main cause of the delay).

    If you buy it, get rechargable batteries, also - the bag they suggest is expensive... I got a Targus bag (Targus DLUC02 Universal Camera Leather Case - Black ) which does the job - it does make it too big to fit in your pocket - but you will want space to carry round the extra batteries!!!!

    In conclusion, this is a very very good first time digital camera. The downsides are the feel of the camera (plastic) and the lag required between shots. It is heavy on batteries, but given that there are rechargable batteries on the market - that doesn't matter so much. I didn't think the software supplied was good, but I note that others think it is, so maybe I didn't give it enough time.

    Would I buy it for my parents again? Yes.
