Summary: don,t know how it works seller sent it without a memory card so i have been unable to use it until i find out which memory card it takes i gave him a good rating and wish i had not done so he was in hospital so it took three weeks to get the camera the whole thing is a bit dissapointing .
Summary: I must like this camera, because I actually own 3 of them now. I bought one and really grew to like it, once I found out they no longer were making these, I decided to track more down bought another, then another. Takes great pictures, accepts other len's with adapter, which most don't know about. I have no issues with any of the three camera I own, I take them anywhere and am pretty rough with them, they have never failed me.
Summary: I bought this camera to have an economical zoom for pictures in the marshes of southeast Georgia. Kayaking can destroy an expensive camera quickly. I like the simplicity and ease of access of controls. Very good picture quality for an older model. I also have the dock for this camera which keeps the batteries charged and ready to go. Overall a better deal than losing my newer and more expensive cameras.
Summary: Bought this camera to replace mine of the same model, that went missing a couple months ago.... it may be an old model now but wow, does it take great photos. I purchased a set of macro lenses for my first HP945 and the camera still takes the best macro pix ever. With my original camera I took THOUSANDS of photos and hope to do the same with this one. So glad I was still able to buy this camera, thanks Amazon!

Summary: Excellent Zoom capability, I Have wanted this camera for about 5 years and was online looking again. I saw the camera at a excellent price and decided why not. I love this camera and should have bought it some time ago. I have already taken some excellent bird pictures with it.

Summary: I purchased this camera for a specific purpose: to use with a 250 super macro conversion lens and rails in shooting macro refraction images. Even using for single shot macros on a tripod, it is exactly what I wanted.
Summary: I have much more safisticated cameras. I wanted this one because the resolution is good enough for internet use and it has a docking station which keeps the batteries charged and ready to go when you need it plus it's connected right to the computer for uploading photos.
Summary: I had one of these in 2005; it was probably the last "pro" camera HP made, which was right before genuine DSLR cameras got cheap enough for the average person to buy. It takes 4AA batteries and what was for the time novel SD cards, but make sure to use the older 2GB or smaller cards. Everything about the camera from powering up to the autofocus is bog slow, ISO 400 is noisy, and battery life isn't very long.
