A good starter digital camera

Anonymous, Newegg
13 October 2006
  • Summary: The HP Photosmart E317 isn't meant for professional or prosumer use, but it is definitely a good starter camera for those just getting into digital photography. Regardless of the missing features and the audio recording issue I mentioned in Cons (Which is only a minor annoyance, not a major...
  • Pros: -Small size -Good picture clarity (Makes excellent 4x6 prints) -Easy to use -Records video with audio -Cheap in price, but not quality!
  • Cons: -No optical zoom and other advanced features are missing, but for the low price such sacrifices must be made -No optical viewfinder for taking pictures without the LCD -Built-in microphone is overly sensitive to wind and low-pitched sounds, causing the audio to easily cut out in video recording mode

  • Summary: I'm surprised to see low reviews for this camera! I purchased one a little over 3 years ago, my first digital camera! It was great, easy to use, never any problems and I used it for my first photography class and was taking better pictures than most of the more expensive models!

Returned this!

M. Nelson, Amazon
17 November 2005
  • Summary: Just wanted to say my earlier review of this was dead wrong. The camera stopped working a couple weeks after I got it. Luckily I had 30 days to return it and that's what I did. Poor camera, went with Kodak instead.

Flimsy but easy to use

ĴĴ, Amazon
17 November 2005
  • Summary: The "HP PhotoSmart E317 - Digital Camera" is a very cheap digital camera with mediocre quality; however, it is extremely easy to use, making it not too bad a camera. First of all, the camera is extremely flimsy.

Dissapointed

M. Joseph, Amazon
17 November 2005
  • Summary: Ok, I bought this for $103 for Christmas at the end of 2005. The second day I experienced problems, like it shutting off by itself. It also ate up all the batteries. Then I got rechargeable batteries, but those were "killed" by the camera within a few months.

  • Summary: First of all, I have use a digital camera for a while now and I have a Sony P-71 and love it. I was thinking to get a simple one for my mom and went crazy on the Black Friday shopping and got this camera from Walmart for $88. I was thinking wow! for 5 mega pixel, this is a really good price.

Good but a pain

S. Johnson, Amazon
17 November 2005
  • Summary: I got this camera as a gift for Christmas last year and I was happy that i got it. the only thing that i have to complain about about this camera is the fact that it eats the battery up like there is no tomorrow. i can't tell you how many batteries i went through so that I can use the camera.
