Excerpt: We just love our Hewlett Packard 6.2 mp digital camera. We've had it for over 2 years now and it's still taking really good pictures. We are very careful with it and have never had any problems. We keep it in a good, padded case, zipped up in a drawer when not in use. My biggest fear is that we'll drop it, but it has a strap and we are in the habit of using that strap. I am a hobby photographer and I take lots of nature photos/pet photos these days with it. My...
Excerpt: This camera has taken some awesome pictures for me in a variety of settings. This camera does not have motion blur or steady photo and that is the only thing that has gotten in the way on occasion of fantastic pictures. It is a couple years old but I am sure it is just an example of how the newer HP cameras will perform.
Excerpt: Camera is outstanding; however, the software to process the photos sucks. It is complicated and unweildly to use. The editing and processing are cumbersome. I had an older model HP camera and the software was much much better. Easier to use and the operation was more streamlined. I love the camera but as long as the software is the way it is, I would not recommend purchasing the camera.
The Photosmart r717 camera is a great camera, amazing features.

Excerpt: I recently got my first camera and it was a journey. I finally decided on the HP PhotoSmart digital camera, this camera is alesome is beautiful lens and zoom quality. Takes great pictures and video.
Summary: This is a very nice camera, good quality. It's user-friendly and simple to use, but has ample features. I initially had trouble with the driver download from HP, but got it straightened out. I had an older HP digital camera years ago, and it actually took clearer photos than other cameras with more megapixels.
Summary: I love the camera. But, I'm having trouble getting the shutter speed fast enough to snap shots of moving people or animals, even if they're not going very fast. It would have helped if it came with an instruction manual. Overall, though, the image quality is good (unless there's movement), and it was a great value for the price.
