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: Although this camera took great pictures and the zoom lens was great, it doesn't hold up !! HP won't repair the camera and there are no "grey market" parts to fix this, so I'm out $300 on the camera ! Invest you money in something that will last, not this piece of junk from HP .....
Summary: my employer purchased this camera for our staff to use. After 6 months the picture color screwed up and was taking pictures with green and purple hues. finally it gave out and HP sent us a new one (same model) well 6 months later, same old problems.
Summary: I have had my HP Photosmart 945 for about 2 years. It took great photos when it WAS working. Now the lens motor is "frozen." When I try to power it up, I hear whirring & clicking noises. Then the lens moves out a tiny fraction of what it should before it shuts itself off.
Summary: Wishing with a passion that HP would unstick my HP 945 digital camera lens! Get it right! But, HP states they are not going to even try to repair these cameras anymore. The camera is being discontinued. How sad. I loved this camera.
Summary: The camera took good pictures, but after 21 months of use the camera has a hardware malfunction (lens sticks and camera will not fully turn on). Choose another company that is known for quality cameras. We did not use this camera regularly.
Summary: My Photosmart 945 just died after 1 year and 4 months of use. Yes, that's 4 months out of warranty. It was $429 back when I bought it, and it was my mistake not to think less of a 1 year warranty.
Summary: I have owned this camera for a year and it has malfunctioned twice requiring it to be replaced with a refurbished camera. It's autofocus function does not take clear pictures consistently. My son's Canon takes much better pitures. I would not recommend this camera to anyone.
Summary: I bought this camera and spent weeks trying to get it to take a decent picture. I had previously used an Olympus which was an excellent camera. The HP will not tolerate even slight movement in the AUTO mode, and the quality of the photos is poor. I complained to HP and they sent me a replacement.
