Summary: I like, no love this camera. It is nice and compact, so I can take it anywhere. The touch screen is very useful and allows me to change the settings I want to take great pictures or even shoot a video if I want. I'm not a professional photographer, but I think my pictures come out looking as if I was. Its great that it uses AA batteries cause I can always just replace them on the go without having to find a wall outlet and then wait for a battery to charge.
Summary: I purchased this camera in blue about a year and a half ago, and was very disappointed in it, for two reasons: The screen totally washed out in sunlight,so all my outdoor shots were just guessed at. The other problem is battery life - maybe I just got a bad one, but no matter what kind of batteries I tried, they didn't last. The camera seemed to drain the battery while it wasn't being used, so when I tried to take a picture, it just froze.
Summary: I Have the CW450t HP camera in color merlot, I LOVE THIS CAMERA and I record Video for as long as I want as long as I have a Big GB memory card the sound is crisp and loud and the video is clear so is the pics the touch screen is great and I have so many options of scenes, back grounds,....
Summary: I'm so used to touchscreen products having great attributes this one let me down. It cannot even record video?!?! And the user interface is completely shoddy. I will not get another HP product in the near future.
