Acheté il y a plus d'un an, plusieurs milliers d'images faites, résultats excellents. Visée d'un vrai reflex, exposition tout a fait correcte, qualité d'image d'un très bon niveau. Acheté en promotion, je suis ravi du résultat Problems: Sans les accus (en option) l'autonomie est réduite. Faire attention à la zone de mise au point.

I've had the pleasure to own the camera for a short period of time and have found that the camera does all its made out to do and does it well. I've used cameras like the CP 990 and have done a comparison of the noise generated by the CP 990 and found that the Nikon's noise is higher at its lowest setting of 100 than that of the HP at iso 50. In fact, at iso 25 I believe the HP would have less problems with noise. The dynamic range of the HP is pretty amazing and the shadow details are good. ...

Update to my previous opinion,Pentax were unable to fix the problem(probably lack of spare parts),so they replaced it with a Optio 550. Higher spec than the EI-2000 but not as easy to use. Shame that the EI-2000 broke!

I purchased a Pentax EI2000(same as HP C912) from Dabs a few months ago and was quite happy with it,feels and handles like an SLR.Good value for money.Nice bright colours and good definition if centre weighted focus is used.Battery life ok if I use the lithium battery provided and keep the lcd screen turned off. Problems: Had to send it back under warranty when it failed to power up.Now its spent the last month sitting in the workshops waiting for parts to arrive from Japan.Could take weeks ...

Pray it never breaks! I do like the camera however it has broken and HP repair it off the wall. Only they can repair the camera. I.E. they will not sell parts to anyone! On top of that they will not even fix a specific problem all they will do is swap cameras with you. So you send them yours and $250 and you get a refurbished unit. Thats a rip if you ask me Problems: camera no longer saves images to memory card. LCD screen will kill fresh batteries in 30 sec.

I had a Kodak DC290 and DC5000 before and the pictures were better color then the HP, the overall prints were better on the Kodak even at a lower resolution. Nice things I liked about the HP LCD flip true reflex viewer the standard screw on for filters Manual settings Things I did not like It was fragile Battery life was low The colors were not very good I sold it after 3 weeks... I now have a Nikon Coolpix 5700. Problems: Battery life was low even when using Ni-Mh

I have been a professional photographer for 14 years and I bought the 912 camera for my work and have not been more pleased with the workmanship and simplicity of this camera. as long as you know somewhat of what you are doing you can master this camera in under 30 days i was able to master it in 3 days but that is my profession. Problems: no problem as of this date.

I have not mastered this camera yet but mostly I am happy with its performance. I bought it for the manual features and especially for the TTL viewfinder. I have not really used the fully manual features because I have forgotten a lot of what I learned in my photog classes, but I like the flexibility of the aperture/shutter priorities and white balance. I take pictures of flowers and especially appreciate the macro feature although I would prefer a sharper picture. Overall, a good buy. Pr ...

6 automatic modes and 4 manual modes plus most manual selections on external camera body linked with a TTL view finder and hot shoe for external flash available at under $300 makes this the "Best Buy of the Year" in my mind. It feels like a 35mm SLR to me, with instant feedback. Professionals may not be happy with image quality, or speed of shots, but I am .. At the price I am dileriously happy. I find the HP 912 an excellent SLR type digitial camera for the amateur user. Problems: Images do ...
