Summary: I have had one of these for a number of years and really liked it. I dropped mine and the screen quit working. For $5 I got this one, put in my card and battery, and it worked. I hope to have many more years of use.
Summary: camera is great, nice quality pictures. its is very slow on accessing the previous pictures taken but not sure if its because of the SD card I'm using or is just simply the camera. but overall i like it. really easy to use and very light weight.
Great with one small defect. Get past that and it will be the best camera.

Summary: This is my 5th HP Photosmart R847 camera. Gave to my daughter, grandson and granddaughter. I am replacing my current R847 as the plastic tip that holds the battery in place has broken on 3 of our current 4 cameras. But we still love the quality of pictures and especially the pet eye fix. With this new camera I will be sure to charge the battery while still in the camera and download pictures using the camera to the computer and not take out the SD card.
Summary: I discovered this cool and very reasonably priced HP camera three years ago and have recommended them to many others. The long-lasting Lithium-Ion battery is wonderful. [No more taking extras AA's with you everywhere!] I love using the panorama option and also the self timer. All in all it's just a super easy-to-use great camera. I take one everywhere and never want to be without one so I keep an extra on hand in case I happen to drop it or lose it.
Summary: The camera did not have a battery or a charger. After buying a $29.00 battery and installing it the camera did not work. The menu came-up on the screen but theI could never get a view. I contacted HP and described the problem and was told that HP does not have a camera repair center anywhere. the camera is now collecting dust in my garage.
Summary: This is an great camera. I especially like the pet-eye fix. Makes all big difference in the pictures of our beloved pets. I do find it works better on the dog eyes than the cat eyes. My disappointment with this camera is that if I have taken pictures with a different camera the HP will not allow any type of in camera changes. But I am not sure any camera will allow you to crop, etc., when you change the SD card to or from another camera.
Summary: My daughter has a camera like this one I purchased. It was an excellent price. I have received the camera and am very happy with the purchase this model is very hard to find and is a excellent product.
Summary: I love this little camera. I got it in black. Very sleek and good looking. My biggest problem with digital cameras has been how quickly they use up batteries. Not this one. And the rechargeable battery charges quickly. It is very easy to use and the pictures have been great. I love the different photo modes. I think my only complaint would be that it didn't come with a memory card. But it uses the SD card.
