Pros Durable, Easy to use, good picture quality
Cons Small screen, Not very many settings, Flash makes things white,Bad quality zoom
Summary I have had this camera for 4 years now and i finaly just got another one, I got this camera when i was pretty young (9) and It was good for me then, Now the battery case is broken and i have to hold it together with tape. The number one thing that bugs me the most of this camera is the short battery life. The longest i have ever gotten my battery to last is about 15 minutes,The number 2 thing i hate about this camera is when it decides to flash in the middle of the day and it messes up my picture. Also it takes forever to wake up (turn on) so I have people waiting for me to take their picture. Buy this camera if you want i just think there are better cameras out there that put out more bang for your buck!

Pros Great for beginners and teens needing a camera for simply capturig the moments, Pretty cheap price.
Cons Tiny screen, Low resolution, Auto-Settings aren't very good.
Summary Overall, this camera is OK for a kid who just wants a camera to take some pictures with, but don't expect it to take professional photos. The Auto settings are very bad. Actually, it lacks many basic settings seen on more expensive cameras. Get this, but don't get it for the quality.
Pros it takes pictures
Cons low quality, battery eater!
Summary i got this camera as a gift about 2 years ago and it worked well and descently for a while. out of no where, one day i turned it on and the screen turned red and made a long beeping noise. it does that every once in a while. i also had the memory card problem. it came up on the screen that my memory card was 'unsupported'. ive basically had it with this camera and am looking for a new one. this camera is definately for a beginner.

Pros Good light = Good Photos. If You Can Get It To Work!
Cons Battery life is the worst.
Summary I got this camera as a "Free W/Purchase" when I bought a HP all-in-one printer. After the problems with both the printer and the camera I'm really turned off with the HP brand. Since the day I got the camera (about a year ago) it has not held a charge for longer than 5 min. It uses 2 AA batteries after about 3 photos max, it's says "Batteries depleted camera shutting down" So it has been in a drawer since then. I could have sent it in for repair but I figure "Free camera" actually meant,"Since your buying this printer, We'll throw this camera in, maybe you can get it to work". Besides the camera not working, my printer only works about 90% of the time. I get an error message, "Check Cartridges". But that's a different post...
Pros Decent photo quality
Cons Non-sticky settings, flash eats batteries for breakfast
Summary This is an obsolete model (2006) but it's got decent features for the money and can take good pictures. The only complaints are:
1.) The flash - you have to turn it off EVERY time you turn the camera on. It won't remember your settings.
2.) Battery life sucks - the flash, will eat a set standard alkaline batteries in one or two pictures. Battery life without the flash is decent enough. Had a pair of high end batteries last over a year (non continuous use)
