HP Photosmart M407 review
This was my first digital camera, and at first I loved it. But when the honeymoon was over, I saw the problems with it. Some pictures look great, but many are too dark or blurry.
I've lost some great pictures that were never captured correctly by the camera. I can see them on the screen, but no software can import the image to the computer. I've tried Windows wizard, Adobe Elements, and HP's Image Zone.
The largest frustration is batteries. I KNOW all digitals are tough on batteries, but even Duracell rechargable NiMH batteries only get me 20-30 pics. I carry 6 spares in the case everywhere I go. Trying to upload a lot of pics via USB cable is impossible, as the batteries will die before upload is complete.
I love HP printers, but I will never buy another HP camera as long as I live.
Video quality poor.
Shutter lag and time between shots are both brutally bad.
This is actually a package of FRUSTRATION disguised as a camera.
