Excerpt: The H P R742 was a wonderful choise for my first digital camera. It has so many features, and even after haveing it these last few months, I am still learning all the perks. The digital zoom is absoulutly great. i have taken this to several concerts and the zoom would take me from last row to almost front row. I can change from color to black and white, or even sepia. It has a Design gallary menu where you can modify color, add boarders, crop, or even rotate the picture.
Excerpt: This camera is your average 21st century camera. I do have to say that I love HP and they've proved it to me with this great quality camera. I got it on sale back in 2005 and haven't had any problems. The battery is not your average AA but sort of like a cell phone battery, which is rechargable. This is extemely important for me. I hate having to buy batteries all the time, which gets super expensive. I would recomment an HP Photosmart camera to anyone.
Excerpt: This product is the ideal camera for those of us that appreciate taking beautiful pictures however are a little skeptical about the prices of certain products out at different stores. My previous camera was also a HP digital camera, and so I have not had any problems with HP's line of cameras. This camera, the R742, comes with a rechargeable lithium battery which is a very important aspect to the camera since the battery life is much more stronger.
Excerpt: I have a digital camera just like my mom's ....hers is holding charge mine doesn't and it's 25.00 to replace the battery plus 10.00 shipping for something not much bigger than a postage stamp!!!!!!!!!! Also, the store I bought the camera from doesn't carry replacement batteries..........what's up with that?!?!?!?!?!

Summary: I love this little camera ! great feaures and a nice big screen plus it's the easiest camera to operate I have never had to pick up the instruction booklet to figure anything out I like it so much I purchased 3 more for all my daugthers
Excerpt: It does have a good flash, and takes great pictures without flash. However, the pictures taken without flash are a little grainy depending how much light is in the room. Overall, it is a good camera . Would I buy it again if something happened to this one? I might. Most likely I’d still purchase an HP camera, but I’d probably buy a newer version. Hopefully, some of the less appealing features will have been fixed in the latest model!
Excerpt: It uses flash and automatic red eye reduction. Sunset Mode which emphasizes red and orange tones. The camera takes excellent sunset pictures. I have been using my HP Photosmart R742 for 2 years now and have not one complaint about it. I would recommend this camera to all persons seeking an economical, slim compact camera for their daily use. My rating on this product of a rating system of 1 - 5. I give the HP Photosmart R742 a 5 out of 5.
