Excerpt: This camera has some pros and cons, like all others, but I plan to find another camera to buy. I got the HP Photosmart 635 2.1MP Digital Camera from my sister-in-law when she got a new camera (actually her brother-in-law had let her borrow it for a while, …
Summary: This was a great deal on a camera with many extra features. I believe that the reason it was selling so cheaply was because it is a bit complicated to use. It took someone like me who has used many cameras to be able to figure out the many features and the reason for them. It is not a camera for the average person to just pick up and shoot.
Summary: With the price of digital cameras now within reach for most people, it is tough to decide on which one to go with. I am nothing more than a casual user of cameras, and am not in need of one with loads of bells and whistles, nor can I justify spending an arm and a leg on one. The HP 635 was the camera I decided to go with and am so far very pleased with it, despite a few technical flaws.
Summary: This an acceptable digital camera, not much more. It's a solid value if you find it for less than $75 or so, but I personally would pay more for a Kodak or Olympus with similar specs next time around. Pros: -Low price -Reliable 3X zoom -Good outdoor capabilities -Reasonably logical navigation menus -Excellent USB connection and PC photo download/edit software Cons: -One of the worst battery-eaters I've ever used -Poor color saturation: certains blues and greens are way...
Summary: If you're having a problem with the battery life, judging on other reviews, you aren't the only one. This camera does work decently when the batteries are working. It takes video with sound in addition to the pics. If you have a HP computer and printer like me, the software loading pics/video is even easier. Here's what I have found is a way around the battery problem: Keep 3 sets of rechargable batteries.
Summary: This camera takes very good pictures and is very easy to use. It has alot of features that anyone can master in a short time. HP has done a good job with this device and I would recommend it to anyone now getting into the digital photography hobby. As the other reviewers mentioned, it is a must to use rechargeable batteries and get more memory. For the price and features, try it and you will be impressed.
Summary: I wouldn't call myself a [digital] camera expert. I have a few friends with digicams and this my first one. All the features on this thing are great! Lightweight, practical, and it's not too slow taking pictures or loading them. It's fun to play around with, too. My camera drained AA's like nobody's business; but then I got rechargeable ones.
Summary: I was in need of a better digital camera from my old one. After searching for some time, I decided to get this model because of the optical zoom and easy to use features. Initial setup with this camera is extremely easy, and you'll be taking pictures within minutes when you first open the box. Image quality is very good at the 2.1 MP this camera is capible of. The on-screen menu system for the camera is very easy to use and to change settings.
Summary: I bought this camera 2 weeks ago, and I am very impressed. I was worried that a $180 camera would not take such great pictures, but I decided to give it a try. I was not disappointed. The picture quality it GREAT,I printed some 4X6s of my images at a photo lab, and they looked almost perfect, VERY close to regular 35mm. I also printed an 8X10, and although it was a tiny bit blurry it was more than acceptable. It has plenty of features for the beginner, to advanced user.
Summary: I'll admit it, I basically bought this camera because it was affordable (I got it for $149.99 at Target), and it had all the features I wanted in a digital camera. It's incredibly easy to use! I took it out of the box and started shooting photos about ten minutes later. There are so many nice features, too.
