Summary: This was purchased for my Mother. She wanted a printer you don't have to hook up to a computer. She doesn't have a computer, she doesn't want a computer and won't have one. This was great for her..she just wanted to print pictures.

Excerpt: This is a super camera for the beginner or intermediate user. Takes great snapshots in any light with lots of features for editing, sharing, creating. And fabulous support from HP. Uses SD memoriy cards, double AA batteries and with the Lithium battery I can get over 1200 picutres on a set of batteries. Forget using regular alkaline or rechargeables: you'll spend all your tiem changing batteries.
Excerpt: The Hewlett Packard Photosmart M417 digital camera is amazing. It is very easy to use, the writtin directions are clear and it is fun! I love this camera , and will never use a camera with film again. Also, HP brand seems to be quite reliable. I have had my camera ~3+ years now, use it frequently and have never had any mechanical/technical problems.
Excerpt: We have had the Hewlett-Packard Photosmart M417 digital camera for about 4 years now. It has been dropped, stepped on, stuffed into a purse that got tossed around and stepped on, all without a case, and it is still going strong. It takes good quality pictures, great for family trips and kids school stuff and parties. It holds a standard SD card, and has a pretty decent battery life.
Excerpt: HP Photosmart M417 is a great digital camera for beginners that has high quality. The zoom is 7x and costs a value. The different scene selections include beach and snow, landscape, portrait, action, and more. These options allow for different pictures to be taken to allow for a creative angles for pictures. The camera has a hand that can be seen in the LCD to warn that the picture is blurry.
