Summary: After spending weeks agonizing over which digital camera to buy, I finally decided on the HP 618. Mainly because of the HP name, (I have an HP printer and scanner). The camera is easy to use and takes beautiful pictures.
Summary: This was our first digital camera and, after a lot of research, we are happy that we chose this one. It takes great pictures, lets you know if it is in focus or not, it's easy to use and has a lot of features.
Summary: I spent a good amount of time researching the right digital camera for my family. We have had this now for about 4 months, and have taken well over 1000 picutes with it. We have used it from the first day we got it with absolutley no troubles at all.
Summary: I've looked at a lot of different digital cameras here and elsewhere. I have also used many in trying out different types. This camera is absolutely the most intuitive and easy to use digital camera that I have ever used.
Summary: Very nice camera! I'm a little worried about touching the LCD preview screen and this camera doesn't quite fit right in my hands yet. Still this did not affect my rating! The pictures are good and the camera has many features for the price. The remote is a surprisingly handy extra.
Summary: I first bought the Sony MVC FD75 because I thought it would be easy (it uses a floppy disk) instead of a media card. The pictures were not clear and were dark. I returned it and purchased this camera and was snapping away right after I put the batteries in it. Pictures are bright and clear.
Summary: . This camera is almost unheard of in magazine comparisons, that's an absolute shame because after buying this camera I was amazed! I have many friends who are photographers and can't understand why this camera is not on the cover of any digital magazines or at the top of any camera comparisons.
Summary: Purchased the camera .... Excellent pictures and great battery use. Bigger compact card great asset. Had much trouble uploading pictures via USB. Apparently, USB on Dell computers is not powerful enough to support USB uploading. Must buy separate card reader to upload pictures.
THIS camera is so good I managed to repair it by using foil to ...

Summary: I bought one of these camera's many years ago. Somehow one of the battery negative poles (the spring contact) shorted out and fused to the bottom of the battery compartment. THIS camera is so good I managed to repair it by using foil to get contact to the battery.
