- I twice submited requests to HP...

Strengths: Price against competitor's,supposedly simalar Camera's. Comparing quality HP 318 is no where near even cheap competitors.

Weakness: Zero Support 10 cents worth of software costs $17 dollars, HP lack lacks integrity to make software\drivers downloadable. Considering the HP "Hassle Program" try another brand

- I twice submited requests to HP support for this device and never got the courtesy of a reply
- As a former, very strong HP customer, last week I had to buy another brand laser printer. I am now looking for a new 5 MP Digital Camara and HP is not even considered
- My last HP Camara will at least make a good toy for my 8 year old.

I would really be hesitant to...

Strengths: relatively small, relatively inexpensive

Weakness: many. For being a 2.3 mp, photo quality is marginal at best. Camera really struggles under low light and auto focus really has problems locking in. LCD display is horrible!!

I would really be hesitant to recommend an hp camera after this one! After about a year, it quit working completely. Wasn't satisfied with the quality anyway. Pictures were only marginal. Terrible in low light and numerous photos were blurry. lcd display was grainy and not visible in outdoor setting. Friends of mine have canon, nikon and kodak cameras of similar models. There is no comparison. Go...

Red Eye everywhere - using...

Strengths: Easy to use, good pictures outdoors, download as camera or disk,

Weakness: flash doesn't always work, takes about 3 secs between pictures, 10 secs to turn camera on to taking first picture, sunlight causes blue line accross photo, no optical zoom, eats batteries quickly

Red Eye everywhere - using anti-red eye Eats batteries quickly slow to start and between pictures From what I've read, it is still a good camera compared to others in it's category, but I often wonder if the extra $100 cdn would have been worth a similiar Cannon model, wtih more features, like manual overides, optical zoom, video out, etc. Pictures are good, once you know the limitations, and...

Strengths: Inexpensive, durable, comes with nice software, takes decent pictures

Weakness: The USB adapter that you're supposed to plug in to get the pictures on the computer, didn't work on my computer, so I had to buy a usb compact flash card reader/writer. Also, there's a bit of a delay

when you press the button, so if you want to take in-the-moment pictures it's not for you. however, I've dropped it and it still works, and because it was so inexpensive (about 200 with a 32 MB card and the internal 8 megs) I'm not afraid to go places with it. Very simple, just point and shoot. The flash sometimes doesn't go off (pre-dropping it) and as I said, the pictures often come out too...

Strengths: ACD software is good - easy to make poor shots look much better. Easy to use interface. 2.3 megapixel resolution for the price.

Weakness: Shutter delay. No protection for LED or lense. Small bright background areas will adversely affect exposure. Can't datestamp pictures.

A good snapshot camera for the price. Setup and uploading pictures from camera to the PC is a snap. USB inteface is fairly quick. Software for the PC is very good with lots of features. I was unable to get the MAC version of software to upload pictures. (That may have been me as I didn't spend much time trying to figure it out). The weakness of any bright background causing underexpose of darker...
