HP cameras seem to be overly fragile!

Bill Atkinson "TechHead", Amazon
19 June 2007
  • Summary: I've owned the M407 and an 850. Both broke within a year, though they were well cared for. There must be a reason why HP cameras have such low share of the digital camera market (not even in the top then!). But then again, HP was never meant to be a camera company, huh? Canon and Nikons seem to be the bees knees when it comes to digi cameras!

  • Pros: Once you buy memory cards they can take a lot of 4 MP pics.
  • Cons: Frustrating to use, blurry pics, dark pics, frequent need for service.

A Big Waste of Money - Looking to replace this camera ASAP

E. Sanders, Amazon
24 September 2006
  • Summary: I lost my HP R607 while on vacation and needed to replace it quickly. I couldn't fine another R607 (which I really liked), so I purchased the HP M407. I thought it would be the next best thing to my misplaced camera...NOT!! I don't like anything about this camera...It's terrible! You can take about 4 pictures with regular batteries, about 10 with rechargeable ones (even with screen off). It says "auto focus", but I don't think it has any focus at all...
