jonnie duncan.'s review of HP PhotoSmart 318

★★☆☆☆

“The case on the HP photoSmart 318 is plastic and...”

Written on: 12/11/2002 by jonnie duncan. (1 review written)

Good Points
Compact and relatively easy to use Support is very good (I am on my third replacement camera)

Bad Points
Weak plastic case. Under exposure. Battery life.

General Comments
The case on the HP photoSmart 318 is plastic and fragile. A metal case would be so much better.
The camera tends to underexpose. It is difficult to force any form of over-ride of the exposure. If you set the exposure to a darker object, the focus also locks - normally wrong.
No matter which ones you buy, the batteries run out far too soon. (I know a cheat for this if anyone's interested)

Hi
<br>Its so long since I replaced the camera, I don't know that I can remember it fully.
<br>What I used to do was, as I switched the camera on, select the little 'no flash' symbol so the flash system doesn't charge itself.
<br>Of course, this only works when you do not plan to use the flash!
<br>This added some hours to my battery life.
<br>I hope this helps
<br>Jonnie

I agree with the reviewer regarding a much needed case for the camera (mine didn't come with a case). Would love to know the cheat for extended battery life.
