5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Carmera, poor offering
I purchased this Camera because of the good deal since it stated that the docking station is included with camera, still does.I got the camera, but not the docking station.I contacted Amazon about it and they were to resolve it by sending me another camera with the docking station.Too no avail, still no docking station.Now I had two cameras and no docking station.Finally got one camera sent back, but stillno docking station from Amazon.As far as the product, GREAT CAMERA forthe price!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars This camera gets an A+
I received this camera as a Christmas present last year and I love it!It's very user-friendly, compact, and you get high quality pictures with it.I especially like the zoom feature.The built-in directions for the multitude of settings are handy--no need to lug the owner's manual around.

5-0 out of 5 stars A great compact digital camera with reasonable price...
I bought it as a sub digital camera. I have a fuji S7000.
-Low lighting condition: it is much better than any others
-Picture quality: Very good or equal to S7000 with 6M*** setting
-Easy of use: Yes, it is very easy and support 11 languages
-Size: small enough and solid construction
-Red eye: it works as it described. Although, it is "post-processing" and takes 1-3 seconds per picture.
-Battery life: good enough to take 150 pictures
-LCD: 1.8" with 120K pixels. Very clear than low resolution 2.0" or 2.5".

Not like:
Re-charging flash or saving picture take longer than S7000. I'm not sure it is because of compact camera. Depended on picture quality setting, it takes 2 - 5 seconds.

Amazon.com Product Description

This bundle includes the HP Photosmart R707 and the 8887 Digital Camera Dock
The compact, lightweight HP Photosmart R707 makes taking dazzling photos easy. It offers a 5-megapixel resolution, 3x optical zoom, and new digital image processing technologies that will make it quite difficult to snap a bad picture. It also features a large 32 MB internal memory, compatibility with SD and MMC memory cards, movie mode with audio, manual controls, and a stylish brushed stainless steel body with an ergonomic grip for steady, one-handed shots.

Optics and Resolution
The Photosmart R707 has a 1/1.8-inch CCD with a 5.1-megapixel resolution (effective) for 2612 x 1968 pixel images. It also has a 1296 x 976 pixel low-resolution mode. The 3x optical zoom lens has an 8-24mm focal length (equivalent to 39-117mm in 35mm photography). It also has an 8x digital zoom to help you get even closer to the action.

Video and Audio
In addition to still imagery, the Photosmart R707 can also capture high-quality MPEG1 video with audio. It has a high-resolution video setting of 320 x 240 pixels and 30 frames per second. Movie length is only limited by the amount of storage you have on hand (either internal memory or external memory card). You can also capture voice notes of up to 60 seconds in length.

More Features
With HP's Instant Share feature, printing and sharing photos with friends and family is quick and simple. You can select a destination--e-mail addresses, online albums, printers and more--on the back of the camera with a single push of a button. When connected to a PC (either via the included USB cable or via the optional dock), the selected images are automatically printed and/or e-mailed. E-mail recipients see thumbnails of the images right in the body of their e-mail message, as well as a link to the web page where they can view, print and save the photos.

The R707 features HP's exclusive Real Life digital image processing technologies (created in collaboration with Texas Instruments), including:

  • HP Image Advice, which analyzes photos and then provides tips to users on how to adjust settings to improve future shots, thus helping the photographer learn to take better photos.
  • HP In-Camera Red-Eye Removal, which instantly removes red-eye from photos right on the camera without using a PC--an industry first.
  • HP In-Camera Panorama Preview, which allows consumers to take up to five pictures that are then combined into a panorama picture composition and reviewed in-camera.
  • HP Adaptive Lighting, which automatically adjusts high-contrast photos to bring faces out of shadows and details out of backgrounds. This feature balances brightness relationships between bright and dark areas in a photo, preserving gentle contrasts while compressing harsh contrasts.
Other features include:
  • 1.5-inch LCD with optical view finder
  • Manual controls: EV compensation, image quality, white balance, ISO speed, AE metering, color, saturation, sharpness, contrast, AE bracketing
R-Series Dock
The included HP R-series camera dock (C8887A) makes it easy to connect the Photosmart R707 to your computer for transferring, printing, and sharing of photos and videos. It also enables in-camera battery recharging (AC adapter and rechargeable batteries included) as well as a second battery with the additional charging bay. Run photo slideshows on your TV using the included remote control and A/V cable.

Direct Printing
The Photosmart R707 offers PictBridge functionality, which enables you to transfer pictures from your digital camera to a compatible printer without a PC or image-editing software. Images can be viewed and selected for printing right on the camera's LCD, with menus for print quantity, date, and index print.

Storage and Transfer
Images can be stored in the built-in 32 MB memory, or on optional Secure Digital (SD) or MultiMedia (MMC) memory cards. The internal 32 MB memory will store 12 Fine and 23 Standard 5.1-megapixel images. The R707 transfers images to PCs and Macs via a speedy USB 2.0 connection (which is backward compatible with USB 1.1 ports).

Power and Size
The camera is powered by a rechargeable lithium-ion battery (included). It measures 3.78 x 2.36 x 1.38 inches (W x D x H) and weighs 6.4 ounces without battery and 7.2 ounces with battery installed.

What's in the Box

The CD-ROM include HP Image Zone for Windows and Macintosh, HP Memories Disc Creator, ArcSoift Panorama Maker, and American Greetings Create and Print software.

5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful little camera
This is my third digital camera. I have owned a Fuji FinePix and a Pentax Optio S4. This camera performs so much better than either one of those. The good points: Great video, crystal clear images, super easy to use, removes red eye after pic is taken, adaptive lighting really works, good battery life. The bad points: a little slower than some cameras when it comes to processing images(but it is worth it), no case or SD card (seems to be a trend with most digitals).

I researched this camera and the Canon Powershot S410 and S500. When comparing the two, the HP had 2 or 3 better features than the Canon. I was hesitant about buying the HP, because it was so new that there was not a lot of customer feedback. I guess the selling point that just made my decision easier was the red eye in camera removal, since I take lots of close ups of my children.

I am so happy with my purchase. I would recommend this camera to anyone. The auto features make picture taking a no-brainer, but if you do want to get creative, you can adjust almost anything, in the manual mode.

A+++

4-0 out of 5 stars HP Delivers with the R707
HP finally delivers a Camera that puts themselves above the crowd. I've been a fan of HP for a long time and the HP R707 is a big jump in quality from their previous cameras. The first thing I noticed was the speed. Everything from taking pictures to navigating the menus was lightning fast. HP has also packed the camera with great software. Built into the camera are features for removing red eye, making panoramic scenes, adjusting bad lighting in pictures...ect. The camera also does not use double A batteries, which I always burned through on my previous cameras. I was able to use the camera continuously for about two hours constantly using the flash and lcd screen with the lithium-ion batteries.

I had no problems with the software and the camera was synced in under 10 minutes. I really like the Arcsoft panoramic maker.

I give the Camera four out of five stars because I thought HP should of included a Secure Digital memory card with the camera. It does not come with a removable memory card and I thought that was cheap on their behalf.

Overall, I highly recommend this camera if you are looking for a point and shoot device.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Quality in its Price Range.
You won't find a better camera for this price. I bought this camera in August while on vacation. I had read raving reviews about the camera prior to getting it, and they were right. What I love most is that the camera fits in my back Jean's pocket. Now that it's winter I have it in my coat pocket every day. The battery lasts forever and has no "memory problems". The camera comes with its own recharger and the battery takes between 6-8 hours to charge, can be done when you go to bed. <br />The camera has many features you only find on more expensive cameras at half the price. The 5 megapixel shots are astounding in crispness and color fidelity. It does not come with an SD card, but it has built in memory which allows you to take various shots depending on the quality setting. All the cameras that come with a card include one with so little memory that they are not even worth using and require the purchase of an additional card, so I don't see the lack of one as a drawback on the R707. I have taken pictures and had them developed at the kiosks in some of the stores for 29 cents a piece and I only have to develop the one's I like. I never have to buy or develop film, I can email the images to family instantly with the camera's features and can even print them on any color printer with the press of a button. If you want stunning photos and the lowest price with the easiest user interface, then this is the one to get; you can't go wrong.

5-0 out of 5 stars Love it!
I just bought the r707 a few weeks ago, and I LOVE it. I spent a lot of time researching and I would have never thought of getting an HP, but I finally decided to get this camera after testing it in the store. It replaced a 2 megapixel canon elph, which produced average pictures. The interface for this camera is much more user-friendly than my old elph, and the pictures are gorgeous too--the colors are sharp and crisp. It's just so fun to use! You do need to take advantage of the many modes and setting options to get beautiful images in all conditions (low light etc) but it's not hard to do that and worth the effort. It also does really well with action shots.

3-0 out of 5 stars Lens in the Viewfinder -----
I just bought this camera. Its a nice design overall...but suffers from one major flaw. The lens is visible in the bottom right-hand corner of the viewfinder.

I read many detailed reviews before purchasing and none of them mention this....WHY ? Don't others find this a distraction when composing pictures ? HP has designed all these nifty features not available on other cameras... They got the styling right all in a nice tight package but really dropped the ball on the most basic feature of all....optics.

I called HP to make sure that my unit wasn't defective. The rep powered up a camera and comfirmed that yes you do see 'a bit of the lens' but it doesn't print !....well duh...I know it doesn't print. So basically its good to know mine is not defective...they are ALL defective, IMO. Told the rep mine was going back to the store tomorrow. I use mostly the wider angle setting and I dont want to look at the camera lens in the viewfinder. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars When it Works Correctly It Scans Well..Auto Feed is Terrible
I've had the scanner for a month. The first reviewer is definitely on point. I bought the scanner because of the Auto Feed feature - no one else offered this. I was able to scan a new (just back from Kodak) stack of photos with no problem, but everything else I put in the feeder jams. Do not even think about putting different sized pictures in at the same time, either. Also, when I put anything on the glass that does not fill the surface, I end up scanning a picture of the mechanism itself along with the picture. What's going on? Did I forget to do something? The numbering and renumbering of pictures will definitely make you crazy as well! The pictures I was able to scan, came out great. The software included with the scanner was also very useful. However, if I can't figure out why I'm getting a picture of the scanner and why the auto feeder doesn't work this baby will have to be returned. If I'm going to have to scan photos one at a time, I might as well get a model under $100. Also, if anyone does decide to get this scanner, it sells for about $40 less at Costco than Office Supply stores, etc.

1-0 out of 5 stars Absolutely tragic.
I bought this scanner with the Automatic Photo Feeder so I could digitize my grandparents' photo albums and create a present for my mother. I'm now seeking a refund directly from hp. This is why:

1) The APF is not usable.
2) The scanning interface is abysmal. (actually a script running in Internet Explorer!)
3) HP support has offered no response to problems.

The hardware would actually be cool for the price. The APF does a good enough job sucking in a stack of photos, jamming frequently but not too frequently. But hardware cannot work without software, and tragically this scanner has been saddled with possible the worst scanning software ever written - actually negating the usefulness of the APF and making even normal flat bed scans a nightmarish experience. My simple photo album project revealed critical flaws that must have been found in HP's quality assurance department, but inexplicably were not addressed.

DETAILS:

1) Problems Using the Automatic Photo Feeder (APF)

PROBLEM: False "jam" errors. Often the scanner reports that a photo has jammed, but the scanned photo is not jammed at all. It is sitting in the output tray exactly where it should be.

PROBLEM: Scan is not saved when an error occurs (such as a "jam" error) even though the scan was completed successfully (and can be swiped out of the temp folder before it gets deleted if you are quick enough). This is by far the most infuriating item and shows that HP skipped the quality assurance phase of development.

PROBLEM: "Descreen" is not available as a scanning option when using the Automatic Photo Feeder (APF) in batch scans.

PROBLEM: Saved scanning profiles are not applied to photos in the APF - unless there is only one photo in the feeder (or it's the last of a batch) - which forces one to insert one photo at a time, virtually negating the concept of batch scanning a stack of photos.

PROBLEM: Photos are consistently cropped incorrectly. The left edge of the image is cut off, while the right side of the image includes a portion of the scanning hood. It appears there is an offset problem. This problem occurs regardless of the size of the photo and is especially problematic with photos with rounded corners (most of the photos I'm scanning)

PROBLEM: Photos are not saved after each scan. Instead the software waits until all photos in the batch have been scanned before writing the images to the destination folder. This methodology has three major drawbacks. 1) I scanned 6 photos through the APF without realizing there was a photo already on the glass. 2) Any errors / software mishaps will result in lost scan(s). 3) Work cannot begin on scans until entire batch is finished

2) Problems Using the "hp scanning" interface

PROBLEM: Cropping rectangle dimensions do not "stick". Clicking "Descreen" or "New Scan" causes new coordinates to be auto-generated, even when "Automatically Crop Scanned Images" is disabled. Most scanning interfaces remember settings from scan to scan so a pleasant workflow can emerge.

PROBLEM: Number Fields do not always hold their values after typing them in manually. Sometimes this is not evident until several clicks later when the number fields spontaneously revert to previous values.

PROBLEM: After manually adjusting exposure and color settings - moving the cropping rectangle loses them and inserts auto-generated settings.

PROBLEM: Clicking "descreen" makes custom exposure / color settings revert to auto generated values.

PROBLEM: Dragging any of the sliders to min or max causes elements in the interface to become "selected" (like a web page) and can even "scroll" the entire panel behind its frame border so that some controls are inaccessible. Often adjacent sliders become selected and upon operating their knobs the mouse cursor turns into the "CAN'T DO THAT" symbol (circle with line through it). Once this symbol comes up, the slider knob will stop moving. Upon releasing the mouse button the user finds that the knob is stuck to the mouse cursor. Clicking on the interface a couple times will drop the knob and deselect the offending interface elements but by this time carefully placed settings have been lost.

PROBLEM: The "Color Adjustment" wheel features a an un-clickable surface, and an icon that cannot be dragged more than a few pixels before you get the Internet Explorer CAN'T DO THAT icon (circle with a line through it). Then when you let go of the mouse, the icon is stuck to the cursor and the carefully placed setting is lost. This makes trying to do color correction a waking nightmare.

PROBLEM: Menu bar: "Additional Items" and "Scan Preferences" lead to identical menus with identical title bars (the title bar says "Scan Preferences") However, the help file confusingly alludes to some significance in the difference between these panels.

PROBLEM: Auto Exposure consistently over-exposes skies, eliminating subtle details and creating huge areas of solid white.

PROBLEM: I have found no explanation for the "Best quality scan from Automatic Photo Feeder" preference. The only information I found on the hp support web site was that it "Optimizes scan settings for the automatic photo feeder" What does this option do and what would be a reason for disabling it?

3) HP Support responsiveness

After 22 days of promises from HP support (in India), they still have yet to address any of these issues. I send them this list over and over, and they tell me they have forwarded my comments but never address them. Even the simple questions about the functionality of the product (last item in my list) go unanswered. I've seen some of these issues about their software reported over a year ago and they have never addressed them. There have been no updates to the software since September of 2003.

From what I understand, this software is used in much of their imaging product line so beware. There's more but I have a 1000 word limit!

1-0 out of 5 stars This one is going back
Many recent HP products have great designs but poor execution, and this is unfortunately one of them.

Like many other reviewers, I was looking for a scanner with an automatic 6x4" photo feeder, since I was very sick of placing pictures on a flatbed one by one only to be confronted with slanted scans. This HP is the only one on the market with this well-thought-out feature. And like some of the reviewers, I saw its high rating in both PC World and PC Mag.

But the two hundred bux was totally a waste. The scanner is bulky and huge! It's also heavier than most scanners you'll encounter. But the biggest problem is the photo feeder, which is very poorly constructed and jams all too easily. (Sidenote: I personally do not like HP laser printers because they jam easily, too. I guess HP's mechanical engineers need a re-education in designing these mechanisms.) I have hundreds of old 3x5 and 4x6 photos which I was hoping to digitize, but after getting very frustrated with having the first batch of a dozen photos (Kodak, Fuji and Agfa papers) jammed again and again and again, I pretty much gave up.

This is an expensive scanner and it fails miserably at the one thing I paid premium for, the photo feeder, so it's going back to the store. My advice: wait for the next version, or wait for a similar offering from Epson or another competitor (hopefully soon).

3-0 out of 5 stars Do not buy this for scanning slides!
Having boxes of childhood slides that I wanted to convert to digital, all of the product details showed this to be the one, for the money.

The slide holder allows a scan of 3 slides at once, BUT... When you crop the 8 1/2 x 11 digital image down to one slide, and zoom in to see the image, the quality is worthless. The colors are gone and the resolution is terrible.

Since I ONLY bought this for scanning slides, it is going back. The Minolta DiMAGE Scan Dual IV (2891-301) Film Scanner seems to be the right machine, and for only $279 vs $195 for this one.

Works fine for images that are 3x5 or larger, but DO NOT buy it for scanning slides!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great project in it's price range
This is a mid-range consumer scanner with some great extra features that you don't find on other scanners in the same price range. After reading some of the other reviews I was hesitant about buying the scanner but made the plunge after using the scanner at a friends.

Note that this was PC Magazines Editor's Choice. Check out their website for the review (www.pcmag.com).

I have found that documents and photos scan easily, and I've even been able to get some of our family's old slides to scan. However, getting good scans of slide is NOT easy. If you want to scan a large number of slides get a dedicated slide scanner.

Also, the automatic document feeded is OK for small groups of photos. It tends to jam easily when a larger number of photos are scanned at the same time. Again, I see this as a nice extra, but not a replacement for a $1000 auto document feeder.

The scans are clear and crisp, however, it will slow down as you push the quality above 600dpi.

My only complaint is the included software. I tried it out but quickly went back to my other photo editing software. Since TWAIN drivers are included, you can use your favorite photo editing software and skip the included software. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars My first digital camera
I've waited until prices came down to finally invest in a decent digital camera - and the hp PhotoSmart M417 is my first purchase. I got it for about $150 after discounts.

It seems to have all the features you'd need for basic photo taking. The pictures come out clear and nice. ... Read more

While kids may coo over carnival-colored units, you'll be impressed by the substantial, professional demeanor of the gunmetal black Hewlett-Packard PhotoSmart P1000 printer. It connects to your PC and also directly accepts CompactFlash Type I/II or SmartMedia from your digital camera. Plus, it offers fast, photo-quality printing and HP PhotoREt technology.

A compact desktop printer designed to be a companion to PCs, the HP PhotoSmart P1000 can print images from your digital camera without the use of a computer, and you can begin printing moments after opening the box. The printer control panel allows a great deal of control with just a few options. We loved the infrared port, which allowed us to transfer photos directly to the printer (requires a digital camera that is infrared capable.) The Quick Success setup poster gave all the basics, clearly illustrated for the fastest no-fuss installation. For more detailed explanations and troubleshooting, the user's guide was thorough and easy to understand. The distinct LCD display made choosing which photos to print, how many, and in what size logical, with just a quick tap of soft pad buttons. To print from your computer is no more difficult--just a couple steps away--than to connect the cables and install the software.

HP printers are designed to be easy to set up and get you straight to work, and the P1000 is no exception. In our tests, this unit delivered great photos in crisp color combined with flexible and dependable operation. When using CompactFlash Type I/II or SmartMedia, our photos had clean, true colors on any paper and especially on photo paper. Offering a maximum resolution of 2,400 dpi, we enjoyed getting fast copies of our prints--up to 8.5 pages per minute for color photos (and 11 ppm black text). You can store photos on your computer for many other uses, such as e-mail and sharing albums on Web sites.

Solidly built and durably designed, the P1000 includes an adaptable 100-page-capacity paper tray and a print-cancel button. The P1000 printer provides great results on all types of media, ably providing professional quality and crisp clean black text on regular paper, photo paper, envelopes, transparencies, labels, and more. It also improves your work environment with its compact size and quiet operation. Even in small workspaces, at just 18 by 15 by 8 inches, it fits into your life, your home workstation, or small office. Hewlett-Packard also backs this printer with a one-year warranty and HP online support. ... Read more

Features

  • Accepts your digital camera's CompactFlash or SmartMedia--no PC required
  • Up to 2,400 x 1,200 resolution on photo paper
  • Exclusive HP PhotoREt color layering technology for sharp, accurate color
  • Prints up to 11 ppm in black, 8.5 ppm in color
  • Supports compatible infrared cameras, PDAs, and notebooks for wireless printing

2-0 out of 5 stars Good prints... bad compatibility
I've had the P1000 for a couple of years. Worked great with WindowsME. After installing XP on my desktop I had to reinstall the printer software to get it to work. Just got a new laptop and it doesn't work at all.. in fact, the P1000 causes my Dell Inspiron to crash whenever I disconnect the USB cable. When the cable is connected the laptop never recognizes the printer.

1-0 out of 5 stars bad usb connection on P1000
I really liked this printer when I first got it about 3 years ago. Sure it was loud and a little slow, but it printed pretty good. Well, after about 1 1/2 years of VERY light duty, I all of a sudden start getting error messages on my PC telling me the printer is not connected to the computer. First I changed the cord to no avail, then I tried different open USB ports on my computer, so it ends up I just have to position the USB cable perfectly to the back of the P1000 to get it to work. At least it would still work, right? Well that got me by for about six months and now it just will not connect at all. Now my HP P1000 has a nice new home in the trashcan and I'm giving Canon a try. If HP puts as much thought into printers as they do computers I definetely don't want to buy another HP product again...

4-0 out of 5 stars photograph printing
If you are looking for a home photo-quality printer (not pro quality- but good enough form me), for a decent price. This is your printer.
I can print 8X10's that come out with amazing results. I even use my scanner to print from the negatives and the photos print out better than my local store (I am not comparing to 1-hour development, I am comparing a local specialty store with an amazing reputation).
Just make sure to use (and of course set the printer) to high quality photopaper, and you will see amazing results.
I bought this printer a few years ago and have never had a problem with it. I don't know if the newer versions are better, but I can't say a bad word about this printer.

5-0 out of 5 stars Money well spent!
I've tried two Lexmark printers: Z51 and Z53. The Z51 was so-so and the Z53 was pretty good. However, both sucked ink faster than Dracula sucks blood.

The P1000 prints incredible pictures without draining the cartridge as quickly as the Lexmarks did.

IMHO, this is the best printer you can buy for the price. Cartridges are expensive but refill kits aren't...and the refilled cartridges print as well as the originals.

You will NOT be disappointed!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great pics from this printer
The printer is great. I couldn't be happier with it, especially since it is so inexpensive. The thing I don't like is the fact that the ink costs an arm and a leg -- check out the cost of HP cartridge 78...If you print many photos, the ink costs start to add up--mainly if you are doing full letter size prints. However, it's still much cheaper than getting film developed. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

Looking for a good basic scanner for home or small office use? The Hewlett-Packard ScanJet 6390C professional scanner is a strong performer and is easy to set up, so you will be scanning in no time.

The ScanJet 6390C is a solid basic scanner that more than adequately fills a useful range of needs. Setup and installation were quick, easy, and intuitive. The oversized quick installation poster was easy to read and simple to follow. If you want additional assistance, you will need to check the coach feature (part of the extensive online help system) or other online help, since the 6390C doesn't include a printed user's guide. You can also use the internal coach to help scan your work after a quick but thorough tutorial. (It took us only 10 minutes to run through all the steps.)

In our tests, the scanner required a warm-up time of just under a minute and a half. After warm-up, we quickly reproduced flat images and slides using several different preset dpi settings. The scanner also has an automatic feeder for scanning multiple flat documents or images, which we found particularly useful. With the feeder attached, the scanner can handle up to five scans per minute. The slide adapter is a bit cumbersome, with too much leeway in the placement of the slide, but it produces vivid scans. The ScanJet 6390C also includes a transparency adapter that allows you to scan transparencies in sizes up to 5 by 5 inches.

This is a fairly effortless scanner that can meet a wide range of needs. Whether paired with an ink-jet or laser printer, you will get crisp, clear scanned images. You can also fax scans or attach them to an e-mail with the click of a button. --David Greenberger

Pros:

  • Fast, easy setup
  • Can handle a full range of originals
  • Complete solution with feeder, slide adapter, and transparency adapter

Cons:

  • Slide adapter is cumbersome

This low-priced, entry-level, quality flatbed scanner includes Hewlett-Packard's Intelligent Scanning Technology and PrecisionScan software. The ScanJet 3200C has true 600 dpi optical scanning and 30-bit color depth for detailed scans with millions of vibrant colors.

Setting up the ScanJet 3200C was easy--we just followed the instructions on the setup poster. We plugged in the AC power supply, connected the parallel cable (included), turned on our PC, inserted the CD-ROM, and followed the HP setup wizard. After restarting our PC, we also installed Adobe PhotoDeluxe 2.0 and Caere OmniPage Pro (trial edition), which are included on the same CD-ROM.

To test the scanner, we started an image-editing application, selected the ScanJet 3200C as our source, and clicked the scan button. The HP PrecisionScan LT application started automatically, running in its own window, and displayed four easy steps for completing the scan. We followed each step as we scanned a magazine photo and exported it back to our image-editing application. The scan took 52 seconds and included unwanted moir&eacute; patterns (typical when scanning magazine photos). We were unable to find an option for filtering these unwanted patterns in the PrecisionScan software, but the scan was otherwise clear, bright, and true to the original. A similar scan of another color photo did not include the moir&eacute; patterns.

To test the OCR software, we placed a document on the scanner that contained both text and graphics. The text was white on a black background--a difficult test for many scanners. We started Microsoft Word and selected its Acquire Text command. The scan took 2.5 minutes, including OCR translation, and the result contained many typographical errors. The software also mistook much of the text for graphic elements. We repeated the scan with black text on a white background; the results were much better, but there were still several typographical errors.

Overall, the performance was fair and, considering the low price, we think the scanner did well.

Pros:

  • Great value at a low price
  • Easy to set up and use

Cons:

  • No software filters to reduce moir&eacute; patterns
  • Relatively large and bulky
  • OCR software is trial edition

5-0 out of 5 stars I Love it! Easy To Use... Professional Level Pictures.
I've used this HP scanner to add pizazz to the pages on several professional websites and I am delighted with it. It was the easiest to install... follow the simple directions. Comes with Adobe PhotoShopDeluxe 2.0 image editor which also does a great job... and va voom... I am "pasting up" photos and graphics to spice up my site... and zooming up a photo album to share the news with family and friends accross the world

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Scanner
I bought this scanner a while back and I just absolutly love it.. The color scan on it is one of the best I have seen for a long time. It does good for black and white also. It's a little slow when it's scanning but for the money and the quality it does a great job. Buy one today you can't go wrong with HP period.

4-0 out of 5 stars Slow, but reliable
This was my first scanner, and in my opinion, a very well designed one. I remember that I was up and scanning the first day I brought it home. It even worked with my old 486 long after I got a faster PC. I'll admit that it isn't fast, but if you are only going to do a little occasional scanning (such as for Ebay) it is just fine. It hums and it grinds- but it never failed me.
The only reason that I finally sold mine was, that the cable connectors (parallel port) weren't compatible with my new Gateway (USB).

4-0 out of 5 stars Perfect for my needs
After reading all the reviews on this product, I was not sure - until the store put this on clearance (newer models are out). It worked great the first day, then didn't the next ("cannot find scanner" message), but I contacted HP online and the next day got a help message. Since then it has given me no troubles. I realize if/when I ever update my computer, this will probably not work(I use Windows 98), but that seems to be the way with anything you buy nowadays - it is already outdated when you get it home. But for now, it does a great job and I am very pleased. (Still I wish it were "one touch", but that is the newer models.) Photo editing program seems to be okay-nothing great, though.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Scanner
This is a great high resolution scanner. I use this thing everyday and I have no problems with it. I love how the color and the hp scanning technology enhances your pictures which is definately a plus. Buy this scanner if you are using win. 98. ... Read more

The HP ScanJet 6300Cse is a good basic scanner for home or small officeuse. As with all the Hewlett-Packard scanners, it's extremely easy to set up,and you can set it up and start scanning in no time at all.

Setup and softwareinstallation were quick, easy, and intuitive. The oversized installationguidelines are easy to read and simple to follow (although reading them is ascumbersome as wrestling with a full-size road map in the car). If you wantadditional assistance, you will need to check the electronic owner's manualstored on the CD-ROM, since no printed owner's manual is included. The novicecan benefit from using the online coach, which guides you through basic tasksand will have you producing work after a quick and thorough tutorial (10 minuteswas all it took for us to run through the steps).

With a warm-up time of justunder a minute and a half, the scanner is soon ready to reproduce flat imagesand slides. The slide adapter is a bit cumbersome, with too much leeway in theplacement of the slide, though the scans it produced were vivid. Scanner buttonsallow you to scan an image (which is then displayed on screen via the driversoftware), or use a number of other features. The printer button essentiallyfunctions as a copier; just press it once to scan and print. Scanned images canalso be easily faxed or attached to an e-mail.

This is a relatively effortlessscanner to use, and a good basic model that can meet a wide range of needs. Itis an especially good choice for home use. Solutions to most problems can beeither intuited or solved with the guide. We were pleased with the crisp imageswe obtained on both an ink-jet and a laser printer. --David Greenberger

1-0 out of 5 stars WHAT A WASTE OF MONEY
This scanner was a great disappointment. It never worked for one moment fresh out of the box! As you can't return it to the store you are reduced to immediately spending more money on a long distance phone call to get a replacement. Not a new one that is. Just someone else's rebuilt problem. The buttons didn't work on the replacement! Help was only another long distance call away, and we all know how long it can take to be the 'next person in line'. Finally, the third unit arrived. Yet another rebuilt piece of garbage with dirt and cloudy streaks on the inside of the glass! Makes for nice looking scanned images!
So, $x spent + phone calls + 2 replacements = 1 useless unit. Never will I waste money on any HP item again! *-5 Stars* is more like it!

2-0 out of 5 stars unstable
Here are various comments I have about this scanner, which I've owned for over two years.

- not-too-bad results for color photos, especially for web use.

- the film/slide-adapter contraption that it comes with is practically useless. The reflector inside is hazy, and since it is made of cheap plastic, it broke when I tried to use it. The lighting on the resulting images is waay off and the over all quality is pretty bad.

- ScanJet software that it comes with isn't too friendly, but it's ok after you get used to it.

- scanning anything over 300dpi is much slower than expected

- this machine is LOUD!

Well just last night, the scanner literally burnt up and died on me when I connected it to another computer. I'm not sure what exactly happened, but when I ran a test scan, the light burnt out and the slider choked as it tried to scan..leaving a pretty nasty burnt odor in the room for a while...

1-0 out of 5 stars A total nightmare
This has to be one of the worst products that HP has produced. I bought this in tandem with the Photosmart 1315. BIG MISTAKE! Not only are both products off the market, but HP offers no assistance what-so-ever. If you pay them $... they will assist you. What a rip-off! I'll never purchase a HP product again.

1-0 out of 5 stars After 9 months it quit!
One star for working nine months but now the scanner died on me. HP is replacing it and in the meantime I'm using a CanoScan N124OU that works perfectly. Look around and you won't see any HP ScanJet 6300s being sold. Too many problems after a while...

5-0 out of 5 stars Not just for Windows® users anymore
An important point lost in the editorial reviews and technical details is that this device has, in fact, been made Mac compatible by the release of a whole series of Mac drivers. When I bought mine, the product was sold as a "Windows 98 only" device, but since then HP has added compatability with most versions of Windows and every version of Mac OS from 8.6 to 9.x. OS X compatability is still not a reality, but HP can be forgiven this; many USB products aren't currently compatible with OS X.

I'm not sure if these new Mac drivers are now included in the standard packaging. If not, they can be ordered for a nominal fee (what amounts to little more than a shipping charge) from HP. Updates can then be obtained by download from the HP website.

There are some pieces of in-the-box software which are NOT Mac compatible, and which HP makes no attempt to make available to the Windows-impaired. Most users will not be inconvenienced by this, however, as they are minor, third-party releases that provide functionality Mac users probably already have.

The Mac drivers, in their latest version, seem to be as good or better than the Windows originals. In fact, I found that the front buttons on the scanner seemed to work a lot better on my Mac than my Windows-based machine. I often found in Windows that sometimes the buttons stop working at all, and I had to reboot. I've had no such problems with the Mac drivers.

Beyond the issue of Mac compatability, the scanner itself has yet to seriously disappoint me. The slide adapter is a little bit of a joke, and it does take acres of time to scan at really high resolutions, but most users will see this as a serious upgrade to their imaging capabilities.

If you want a scanner that's appropriate for all professional work (save, perhaps, print photographic editing at extremely high resolutions), this strikes a nice balance between features and price. Web masters, in particular, will need little more than this scanner. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great bang for the buck
This is the first scanner I have ever bought and I must say I'm impressed with the quality of the scans, the ease of use, and USB installation is a breeze. There were a few problems with the installation, however. You're going to need a patch from HP (get it on their web site) to solve one problem. You're also going to need a patch from microsoft to solve another USB issue (if you're running Windows 98SE like I am)... and finally, I needed help from the Adobe Web site to get their PhotoShop software running (which comes with the scanner and is pretty cool to play with). All of these patches can be had for free via the HP, microsoft, and Adobe web sites using the online support features.

Having to update drivers when you first get new hardware isn't all that unusual so don't let that scare you. $149 for this scanner is a great deal in my opinion.

1-0 out of 5 stars Review for the magazine photo scanners, DON'T BUY!
If you are one of those types of people who like to scan stuff out of a magazine, I wouldn't buy this product at all. When I always tried to scan photos from magazines I'd always get this weird light effect across the whole image. The best I can describe it is, you know how if your cable is bad and you see an annoying black bar that keeps going across the screen. Well this was what happened to my magazine scans. I'd get a transparent yellowish bar (pinkish too) that went across the whole photo and editing didn't even help to get rid of it. Honestly my suggestion is if you scan photos for the web from magazine clippings, don't buy this scanner. The images come out terrible, plus the speed is very slow. This product isn't even worth the lowest rating you can give a product on Amazon.

1-0 out of 5 stars WORST SCANNER IN THE MARKET TODAY
HP Deskjets and Laserjets are at the top of its class, but the HP Scanjet series are probably the worst of its class. Why?

I bought an HP Scanjet 3300c,and the following are its weaknesses:
FIRST, its so bulky and big and its not compact
SECOND, its not portable it will get broken when you bring it on the road or to travel
THIRD, its a very very slow scanner, with a very long waiting time for it to warm up
FOURTH, it has no power on button, so ull never know if its actually working or not until its too late
FIFTH, it has the worst programs its so simple that u actually have no use for it except if you get an Adobe or any photo editing software, it does not cater to creative consumers like us
SIXTH, it has the worst software drivers, the 3300c is made in the time of Win98, when i made a switch to WinME and WinXp I never got to use it again effectively and normally, it would work one time, and in the next, the scanner can't be found by the computer and cannot be detected

SEVENTH, it has the worst software support upgrade, the drivers and softwares especially the HP Precision Scan LT just got no support, if it doesnt work youll be helpless.
EIGTH, it has the worst custommer support ever, the technicians cant even fix the scanner, the scanner involves lots of guess work to use, ull use it 10% of the time you own it, 90% of the time just fixing it.
NINTH, low quality for all those who bought this scanner, almost everyone got furiously mad and dismayed, they thought that HP Scanners are good quality, just dont bet on it,you find it quite hard to operate or maybe broken have it replaced immediqately, HP Scanners are unserviceable, you can only have it replaced, that is if youve not yet passed the one year warranty period
TENTH, overall HP Scanners are expensive, bulky, low tech, with very complicated software, andd its downside the hardware itself.

Please phase out this model, it would ruin your HP Scanner line, your other scanners are also not good suffering the same fate, beware of buying this scanner, its a waste of your precious time, and money.

HP Scanjet Series, a waterloo for HP, its like going back to vintage scanners of old.

1-0 out of 5 stars FAILs TO WORK WITH WINDOWS XP
Beware of this scanner, HP is either unwilling or unable to get this scanner to work properly with Win XP. Even after downloading the software that is supposed to get it to function on XP it is still a complete failure.

3-0 out of 5 stars The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly
This scanner worked fine for me at first. No problems installing the unit to my Windows98 machine using USB connection. Then, after about eight months, I downloaded updated drivers and other software from HP's web site. That was the beginning of the ugly part. After installing the new software, I kept getting an error message saying that the program "cannot find the scanner." I'm embarrassed to say how many hours I spent trying (unsuccessfully) to get the program to "find" the scanner. Finally, I called HP tech support. That was the good part. A very knowledgeable and friendly HP techncian named "Helen" stayed on the line with me for a full two hours (no joke!) trying to solve the problem. The bad part was that, alas, she also was unsuccessful. She concluded that the scanner must be defective. I plan to try installing the scanner on another computer. If that doesn't work, I'll buy another scanner from Amazon. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Color Negative Scanner
The S20 can scan a strip of upto 4 or 5 images nicely in one hit! I have no idea about scanning prints as I don't use it for this. 300dpi for scanning prints isn't high. 2400dpi for scanning slides and color negatives is awesome!

There have been reviews previously at various places that complain that the S20 cannot batch process a whole negative strip. Wrong!! Use the twain driver though Photoshop, PaintShopPro CorelDraw, etc. When the preview is done, adjust each image shown as you wish, set your scan resolution, and then HOLD DOWN the CTRL key and select the images you want to scan. Press Final Scan. Done. Images all arrive nicely separately in Photoshop, etc. Simple.

Contrary to other reviews, you can scan every image shown WITHOUT having the remove and re-insert the negative strip for each photo as others have claimed.

I have tried using Vuescan with the S20. I have found that the HP's twain driver is more than enough to scan high res (3300x2200) images into Photoshop. Vuescan is very nice, but not needed. The S20's HP drivers are actually pretty good. Very easy to use. The image levels are automatically selected by the scanner, but you can opt to over/under-expose, resize, re-crop, re-color, etc yourself prior to the final scan.

The S20 is an excellent color negative scanner for a fraction of the Nikon LS-2000 price! I keep a can of compressed ait handy for cleaning negatives and occasionally the scanner itself.

2-0 out of 5 stars Decent for the Amateur, but not for the advanced amateur/pro
My first film scanner was the HPS20. It "did okay", and that's the best I'll give it. Basically, if your'e at all serious about film scanning, you MUST go to something better, and yes, that means spending a bit more money. I went up to the far, far superior Nikon Coolscan 2000, and might try the 4000 soon, and my results were out of this world better. In todays market, I'd look at doubling my investment and get maybe the Nikon Coolscan IV or find a used Coolscan 2000 or something. The major problems with the HP are color correction on chromes, low dynamic range, it gathers dust like a maids broom, and the shadows are definitely noisy. For the once in a while amateur who just wants to move a few slides or negs to digital and absolutely doesn't expect to get "into" digital darkroom work, then it's probably a steal for the money. But be warned, if you even think there is a slight chance you might move onward to more digital darkroom work, skip this entirely and get something real the first time out, and you'll save the money over the long haul. Recommended with definite restrictions.

5-0 out of 5 stars The S20 ***WORKS*** with Windows XP
I am not rich and I paid a lot of money for this product.

Thankfully, it was worth every penny and I have been using it happily for over 3 years.

There are better scanners out there, but for the dollar, this is a fabulous machine: thus, the five star rating.

That said, please note that this unit ***DOES*** in fact work with Windows XP. At one point I thought it did not work either, but it does. HP released an XP driver/software for it.

At 70 MB, it's a hell of a download, but worth it for those of us that have moved into the 21st century.

You can download it from the HP website.

- Go to HP.com.
- Select 'Home & Home Office.'
- Type 'S20' into the Search field.
- The HP Photosmart S20 and a photo will appear.
- Select 'Download drivers & software' from this screen.
- Select 'Microsoft Windows XP.'
- Select 'PhotoSmart Scanner (SCSI) and S20/S20xi Photo Scanner (USB) Software.'
- Click 'Download now' to being downloading ps804en.exe.
- Follow instructions (or common sense) to install the software.
- A Windows-based message will appear during installation that recommends stopping installation because the HP Photosmart software has not passed Windows Logo testing.
- Despite your usually better judgement, ignore this and click 'Continue Anyway.'

I was terrified to do this, but I called and e-mailed HP directly and was told in both instances that HP had tested and verified compatibility of the HP Photosmart software with Windows XP.

My Hewlett-Packard PhotoSmart S20 scanner now works like a charm on my Windows XP.

Hooray for HP.

1-0 out of 5 stars HP forgot XP
Although my S20 worked fine with Windows 98 on my previous computer, I was not able to find any drivers from HP when I bought a new computer running on XP. HP should be ashamed of itself for treating their customers in this manner. I will never purchase another HP product.

3-0 out of 5 stars no win ME
This scanner worked really well for me (I scan a LOT of negatives). The only complaints are:
-noisy scan
-DONT WORK WITH WINDOWS ME! There are no drivers and this makes it very hard when I depend on this scanner for work! So I need to get a new scanner now :(
Besides that it scans well ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

Looking for a good basic scanner for home or small office use? The Hewlett-Packard ScanJet 6350Cse professional scanner is a strong performer and is easy to set up, so you will be scanning in no time.

The ScanJet 6350Cse is a solid basic scanner that more than adequately fills a useful range of needs. Setup and installation were quick, easy, and intuitive. The oversized quick installation poster was easy to read and simple to follow. If you want additional assistance, you will need to check the coach feature (part of the extensive online help system) or other online help, since the 6350Cse doesn't include a printed user's guide. You can also use the internal coach to help scan your work after a quick but thorough tutorial. (It took us only 10 minutes to run through all the steps.)

In our tests, the scanner required a warm-up time of just under a minute and a half. After warm-up, we quickly reproduced flat images and slides using several different preset dpi settings. The scanner also has an automatic feeder for scanning multiple flat documents or images, which we found particularly useful. With the feeder attached, the scanner can handle up to five scans per minute. The slide adapter is a bit cumbersome, with too much leeway in the placement of the slide, but it produces vivid scans.

This is a fairly effortless scanner that can meet a wide range of needs. Whether paired with an ink-jet or laser printer, you will get crisp, clear scanned images. You can also fax scans or attach them to an e-mail with the click of a button. --David Greenberger

Pros:

  • Fast, easy setup
  • Can handle a full range of originals

Cons:

  • Slide adapter is cumbersome

3-0 out of 5 stars Not worthy of the HP name
This scanner has many good points, but doesn't live up to the HP name. It warms up slowly, scans slowly, and the manual slide mechanism on the 6390 version is a pain. I bought it to support a busy customer reception area, and it just isn't up to the job. Being a relatively expensive scanner, and an HP, I expected more.

The SCSI interface is VERY nice, and using it reduces the time per scan considerably.

5-0 out of 5 stars Fast and quality scanner!
I have this scanner for more than a 1.5 years now. I have choosen it because it's HP, and for the document feeder (there is no slide adapter with the 6350, it is bundeled with the 6390).

What I did not like is the miss of a printed manual (only on CD-rom) and the lack of an extensive on-line help (the help is very brief)! The 5 buttons on the scanner is just a joke for me, never used - I always wanted to make a scan/copy with other settings than the defaults. I have also configured the scanner to be used over our netwrok, whcich does not have much sense to me, but it works without problem.

The scanner have a SCSI-II interface, which let's it transfer data to the computer as fas as it reads from the glass. The document feeder is very useful, especially when making photo copies (the photo copy utility is very useful) or whith OCR through big quantities. The control software is really good too, let's you take control of all settings, no cut down.

I can recommend this scanner for all serious soho users!

3-0 out of 5 stars Requires Minor Quality Tweaks
I did not purchase my 6350 at Amazon, but did so elsewhere. I have lived with this scanner for 2 months now. Here are my thoughts on this product. Note that the 3-stars and title I give this product are slightly misleading. The scanning quality is exceptional. The automatic document feeder (ADF) is a huge plus, and convenience. The software package included is alright. The setup and connections were no problems at all. With minor tweaking of this product, HP could really make it a scanner that will get it 5-stars in every category. Consider the following: 1. The scanner does not include faxing software, or at least I could not find any. This is a minor issue, however.... 2. The scanner optical "glass" surface had smudge marks and foggy spots, right out of the box. Perhaps better quality control/assurance practices at HP will fix this. Items with such obvious defects should never leave the manufacturing facility. Note that the average user cannot clean the underside of the scanner "glass". Hp does not recommend this for the 6350. 3. HP should have packaged the standard document cover with this unit as well. In cases where the ADF is required to be removed for repairs, the standard top could easily be put on. 4. The construction and design of the unit is not conducive to keeping the interior dust free. I state this as the chassis has several visible openings, that could introduce dust, fibres into the inside of the scanner. Perhaps HP designed it this way for ventilation and dessipation of built up heat from the unit. HP could perhaps better the design in future versions of this model. Since the 6300 is the identical model without the ADF, this fact applies to it as well, and other similar HP models too. In summary, I am quite pleased with this product. It does have the potential to be a GREAT product with a little more effort on HP's part. Sincerely, aba4430

4-0 out of 5 stars A Noticeable Difference
There seems to be an over emphasis on business equipment and adult toys when it comes to computers these days. I think it is important to remember that an entire generation is being raised in the computer age. Many children are far more sophisticated in their abilities than traditional at home products are designed and targeted towards.

A perfect example of what a home system should have is the HP ScanJet 6350Cse. Here is a product that not only provides mom and dad what they need for work, but, also provides the children a high quality alternative for school projects that will knock the teacher's socks off. All this and it still won't break the bank.

From the moment you open package you will see the quality of the product. Using it only increases the pleasure. The scan quality is crisp, sharp and incredibly fast. The ability to quickly move from medium to medium is fantastic. If you use your computer for faxing the Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) is an absolute life saver, and the more you use the ADF the more you will appreciate having it.

Personally, I recommend getting the SCSI card and cable, an optional accessory. It will increase your scanning speed and even sharpen your scanning ability. While the USB connection is more than adequate, the SCSI card is that much better and brings out the full capabilities of the unit.

Scanning is really an essential capability these days. From all in one printers and separate fax machines, to expensive high end units it is easy to spend more on acquiring the abilities the 6350 series offer and still not get the consistent quality. The software package is more than adequate and actually offers some nice versatility compared to other packages that come standard with other units. This is one investment that will not become obsolete as soon as you open the package. You will definitely appreciate the quality of your choice.

2-0 out of 5 stars Look before you buy a HP Scanjet 6350 Cse
I have always liked HP products. Unfortunately they have started putting the customer second.

A friend and I both received this product for Christmas and now I wish I did more research before asking for this particular product.

First, we both had problems installing the scanner. The installation turned out to be the easy problem to solve. The hard part was finding the support number. It seems that they intentionaly made it difficult to find. Once you find the number you will notice that it is a long distance number, which means it will show up on your phone bill. You will also spend an average of 30 min. per call. Therefore, my first complaint is that the customer service is very bad.

Second, the slide attachment is a joke. It does not work. If you are thinking about buying this because it has a slide attachment, which I was, then do not even consider this product.

On the other hand, the flatbed scanner and the paper feeder do work well. If I had known what I know now about this scanner, I would not have bought, or asked, for it. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Value!
As an entry level digital camera, this is a great value. For $299 I wasn't expecting miracles, but I've been very impressed so far with this camera. Photo quality indoors, even at the lowest resolution, is amazingly good for Web work. Outdoors photos can sometimes get a little washed out, typically in very high contrast situations.

Other reviewers have mentioned their frustration with very short battery life. I too experienced this for the first few days. Expecting the 500 photos per set of 4 AA batteries the manual told of, I was very disappointed when I got maybe 30-35 shots before having to put in fresh batteries! I later learned that two things contributed to the short battery life. (1) Constant use of the flash. This situation can be fixed by turning off the auto flash when not needed, especially in most outdoor situations. (2) Constant use of the LCD screen. I thought it was cool at first, that you didn't even have to use the viewfinder--just frame your shots on the LCD! Come to find out, doing this sucks the life out of the batteries super fast. So use the traditional viewfinder to take pictures; if you're not sure how the picture came out and want to review it, use the LCD screen.

Lately, following the two rules above, I've been getting 200-300 pictures per set of batteries--including about 30-50 with the flash on. This is perfectly acceptable.

HP's $50 AC adapter should be priced at about $9.99. Instead, buy yourself a good quality set of rechargeable batteries and a charger (you can find them for about $30). This is a much more flexible solution that an AC adapter, especially if you get the 12 volt adapter for the charger so you can charge your batteries while on the road!

2-0 out of 5 stars U get what U pay 4!
I dont get it....some people are praising this camera for its battery life, do you people ever turn on the LCD? I get about 20 pictures per set of fresh alkaline. I don't think the camera is defective simply because it has a 1.25 amp current rating. I wouldn't expect 4 AA batteries to maintain that output for very long. I turned to my RC-Car hobby for a solution, and constructed a 6 volt battery pack using 5, 1500mha sub-c ni-cad cells. Then went to radio shack and found the appropriate connector to plug into the ac-power jack. now I easily get 100 pictures while using the LCD, and best of all.. the sub-c ni-cads only take 10 minutes to charge.also.... the picture quality is severely lacking, and cant even compare to scanned 4x6 prints taken with my 35mm. The only thing I like about this camera is the price.

5-0 out of 5 stars Photo imaging
I am very happy with my camera but I am having a problem with the computer reading the camera for photo imaging. I have the imaging software on my home and work computer but they both say that it cannnot read the camera. I have check everything but it still will not work. Can you help with my problem? Thank you.

5-0 out of 5 stars What a "GREAT" Camera!
This is one of the BEST looking/feeling Camera I have ever had - it does "NOT" have that Cheap Look to it like so many do - it is easy to use & the pictures are 'Nice' looking! It is such a 'great' Camera that I bought my Dad one - he LOVES it! Since, there is Miles between me & my Parents we send photo's often to each other. So, if anyone is looking into buying one of these - DO IT - You won't be Sorry :-)
