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?
A Big Waste of Money - Looking to replace this camera ASAP
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!
Summary: I have owned this joke of a camera for over a year now, so as someone with alot of experience with it, I advise you NOT TO BUY ONE. I wouldn't reccomend this camera if it was only $19.95 and came with a free sledgehammer to take your anger out on it when you realize you just wasted twenty bucks...
Summary: THIS CAMERA IS THE WORST!!!I BOUGHT THIS ON BLACK FRIDAY THERE ARE MANY REASONS WHY I AM RETURNING THIS PIECE OF JUNK: 1.FIRST OF ALL, IT RUNS ON DOUBLE A BATTERIES 2.WHEN I CAME HOME I STARTED TAKING PICTURES.AFTER I TOOK MY FIRST PICTURE, IT SAID ERROR SAVING IMAGE!
Summary: For Christmas I asked for a digital camera. Since my family goes with the "you can open one before Christmas", I got this under the Christmas tree. I starting taking pictures, and I can't believe how poor the image quality is!
Summary: I was so excited to be getting this as my first digital camera. After using it for less than a week, I became VERY disappointed. The pictures weren't clear, the flash was inconsistent, the batteries don't last, and it BROKE 3 times in one year.
Summary: This camera is the worst. I was so dissappointed with it. Everytime I use it I get so fed up that I go back to using my regular camera. The delay is so bad that sometimes it takes me 25 pictures to get it right. The batteries go so fast and always need to be recharged.
Summary: I loved my last HP camera so I decided to buy the 407M. I regret it. After only a few months the camera started freezing up and to reset it I had to remove the batteries. It also is very slow and I had a hard time taking pictures of my baby girl because by the time the camera took the picture she...
Summary: I bought this camera after deciding between this, a Sony, and a Canon. I made a BIG mistake. For starters, the HP M407 is very easy to use. I didn't even read the instruction manual. I felt there was no need to. The buttons were easily placed, and the picture taking was easy.
Summary: The camera has a lot of features, but the photo quality is unbelievably horrible. I get better pictures with my cellphone. The picture are blurry, and have odd green spots on the photos, like I'm using no antenna for my TV. Get a Sony Cybershot, like the other person said.
