Summary: I don't remember reading this item was used. It was probably written and I didn't see it. Its my fault if that's the case but even then I'm not satisfied because this camera was not in good shape at all. Not only it had scratches but some metallic parts were rusty.
Batteries NOT included, very slow! *UPDATED 8/14/12)

Summary: My husband bought this camera for me for Xmas, and it was straight from my Amazon wish list. However, when I got it, it did NOT include rechargable NiMH batteries OR AC adapter. It did have a USB cable to connect to the PC, and I'll see if that will actually charge the batteries we put in it (rechargables w/ a full charge, but told me the batteries were low.) Took several seconds to take the first shot and it had the "flash charging" light flashing the whole time.
Summary: I like HP and the price was right for this camera.Can keep it for fun Pictures during the Summer or for any event that might take place throughout the year. Just power up and shoot. Make sure you have an extra pair of Batteries, these Cameras run on pure Battery Power.
Summary: I am delighted I purchased this camera. I got it as a gift for my daughter, but it would be a great camera for anyone! It's simple to operate & takes really good pictures, & even video. It's a great point & shoot camera for a beginner or for anyone who wants to be able to take good photos.
