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.
Excerpt: This camera is great and produces quality pictures. The only bad thing is that I always have to replace the batteries. Also my battery cover broke so I have to place a new strip of tape over it everytime the battery dies. Overall, it's a great deal.
Excerpt: Great product at a reasonable price.I have dropped this camera numerous times and it still functions. HP is a great manufacturer and this product was so cheap at $75 I thought it ould not work, but it definitely delivers quality resultd. I am so impressed.
Excerpt: I owned this camera up until recently. I loved it. It fell out of my pocket and got ran over by a car. Needless to say it didn't survive, but my SD card did. I was just glad to save my SD card they are so expensive. I had this camera for several years and I loved it, my husband and kids dropped it several times and it still worked like a charm. My husband is a carpenter and took pictures of his work, he couldn't believe the detail it captured. Great value for the price.
Excerpt: My husband got me my first digital camera about 1 year ago. I was so excited to get it! But i wouldn't reccomend this camera to anyone! First off, when you zoom in, it isn't clear, it's blurry. When you open it you have to slide it, and it get's worn out so it fell off...that's to turn it on! so my husband had to screw it back on. the end of the rd for it was when the battery cover just fell off. It wouldn't hold my batteries anymore!
Excerpt: This camera is 5 MP and easily fits in a coat pocket for the unexpected photo op. I have made 8x10 enlargements with outstanding quality and enjoy the ease of operation. The zoom and other features are just right for the amatuer photographer. This is an excellent choice for a first time digital buyer.
Excerpt: This is my second favorite camera in our house, and was my first decent digital camera. I bought it at Staples on sale for around $80 a few years ago. The absolute best feature on this camera is it's simplicity. It takes very clear pictures and has a pretty quick response between pictures. It also takes video clips, although there is no voice playback on the camera. Also, even on the computer the sound is not very clear.
Excerpt: Nothing complicated with the HP Photosmart E317. It is easy to use and takes good pictures. It has 5 shooting settings, 5 image quality settings, date/time imprint settings, plus more. I recommend purchasing rechargeable batteries with a battery charger, extra batteries for back-up and at least a 256 MB memory card.
Excerpt: I received this camera as a Christmas present a couple of years ago. It is by far the best little digital camera I have seen. Several friends have high mp cameras or extra lenses, etc. but their pictures can't compare to the ones taken with this camera. I've even been asked if a few of the pictures I've had developed were taken by a professional photographer. That's amazing to me since I've never had photography lessons and just love to snap away.
