my only complaint is the quality of construction in just one area. you all know how often you have to change batteries and the main battery door is held in place by two little plastic legs. my two little legs broke off after 1.5 years of light use. hp will not sell you the part and they will not sell it to one of their authorized service centers. the only option they give you for repair is to send the camera to their centralized repair center along with $500 dollars! as i made my way through ...

Good camera for the money, Solved the battery problem with a Maha belt battery pack. Works well with a stepdown cable. Problems: Slow recovery time in low light conditions.

Seem to have solved the battery problem - got a set of Nickel - Metal Hydrides made by SAFT. They last for literally 100's of pictures! Can't say enough good about them. Same low light problem as everyone else. Great outdoor pics though. My biggest complaint is the temperature requirements. I live in Alaska and a minimum temperature tolerance of 32F is just ridiculous. I have a chest strap on my pack that I thread the camera case through to keep the camera next to my body for heat. Seems to ...

For outside use the camera is second to none come indoors and drop all hope of any quality as the iso setting is only 80 so forget about low level lighting! If you use the flash it will take adequate for the small flash but I had hoped that it would work as well as its small brother.. The C200 is far superior in its lighting than its bigger brother C500 however the quality is not as good! Also be prepared to have a Rambo style battery belt pack as it chews up batteries like it is going out ...

Heavy, bulky camera. Image quality is ok but nothing great. I think the white balance and color saturation could be better. The Digita operating system is easy to use and understand. LCD is dark and not a full 30 fps so images seem jittery when you use the LCD to frame the subject. 38-155mm lens seems too narrow, I would like to see 28mm to be able to get more information into the shot not less. Delay in taking pictures is annoying. You press ther shutter and wait what seems eternity for the ...
