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.
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 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.
Summary: When I bought this camera I was looking for a decent MP digital camera with decent zoom. I didn't want one of those tiny camera's, I wanted something that I could firmly grip and not fear losing easily. This camera is hefty and suited my need in that way.
Summary: I too got took on this one. Looked great, had lots of features. Got it for my birthday what a waste of money. I bet I didn't take 50 pictures with it before it died. I also bought all the extras that went along with it.
Summary: I have owned this camera for over 3 years. Picture quality is amazing,particularly if you are into landscapes. True colors are obtainable in any light if you know how to adjust the manual tuning features. My main gripe is the periodic shutting down of the camera .
