HP Photosmart 812 review

This camera is a major battery HOG!! Buyer beware it is not what you would expect from a 4.0 camera. Pictures take forever to take (2-5 seconds) under good light conditions and if it is overcast or indoor -- be prepared to wait up to 15 seconds. Image quality and useability are good -- but don't take this camera with you and expect to get spontaneous pictures of moving people or objects!!


Eats batteries for breakfast -- either high end alkaline or rechargeable makes no difference. I took this camera with me to a wedding and the batteries died twice before we even made it to the reception (10-15 pictures).

Do your research and buy another camera.
