Summary: I was looking for a simple camera to use that could take good pictures without all the focusing that others used. I had bought a new HP, a few models up from this one. But very similair. The screen went out on the new one, so I wanted to replace it but not with a new one. This one works as good as the old one ever did. Saved a good amount of money in the process. Am very hppy with the camera.
Summary: excellent camera great pitcutres digital pictures are excellent wouldnt change it for nothing the batteries last long in the camera great distant pciture for the pixels it has its light weight
Excerpt: Had to send the camera back for repair THREE times since getting the camera. Constant problems with the flash and with it turn itself off. The camera is very lightweight and would be a good first camera if it was not for the problems with it. These are clearly faults with the make of camera as I have been sent two replacment cameras which have te same problems therefore I will not be using this camera anymore or replacing it with anothe HP camera.
Excerpt: The HP Photo Smart e317 is an excellent camera for the beginner or more advanced photographer, and is made even more attractive by its relatively low price. My camera has been enhanced by an SD memory card, which at 256MB gives you an extra 100-200 pictures - and you will need this as the initial camera memory is only 18 pics!!!! However, this aside, the HP e317 is a very good camera.
Excerpt: This is a great camera. The HP PhotoSmart E317 is extremely easy to use and the style of the camera is perfect. Its also nice and small so you can take it with you anywhere.....its just perfect. I still haven't found one problem with this product. Everything works 100% and you dont even need to customer support since its so simple and easy to use. The camera is very affordable...
Excerpt: I bought this camera for my birthday in feb. I think it's a good camera if you are not a frequent user. I wouldn't say it's the best camera ever but it's good. The coour quality is quite poor in my opinion and people come out too light. It came with two normal AA batteries but that did not last long because it has poor battery life i ended up buying rechargeable batteries.
Excerpt: This is a nice easy to use camera. It features the same screen on the back with various menus for viewing pictures as other Hp cameras higher up in the range. The main downside with it being a cheaper camera is that often when taking pictures and moving slightly at the same time the image becomes blurred. Obviously if you know in advance about this problem you can take some nice quality pictures, but its not good for taking photos quickly or to cpature one off moments.
Pros: Small, lightweight design easy to use .
Cons: Does not come with a rechargable battery, wobbly pictures .
