HP Photosmart 715 review

I received this camera as a birthday present. I was very pleased with the thing I could do with it at first, but ran in to a couple of traps not known to be there.

Since it was my first digital camera, I was trying to handle it as a normal point-and-shoot camera, but found that when trying to take pics of animals in action wasn't really what this camera was ment for.

In all fairness, it IS a good camera with a reasonable price, and if You shoot in a fairly bright light, the pics are absolutely fine.


It is a bit slow, so for action shooting, I wouldn't recommend it.

It has a funny thing with it's memory!
It is not a born 16Mb camera, but more a 8+8. So if You purchase a 64MB card (or any other) You'll not get 72Mb worth of memory, but still only 64+8.

All this said. I was quite satisfied with it's macrofunction, and will later post some of the pics I've shot with it.
